Highly recommended! It's November and it was a rainy day. However, we can still recommend this excursion! The bus, the guide (Tollo) and the bus driver were great! It was very easy to understand and I felt like I was in good hands all day. The attractions were great! Beautiful and breathtaking landscapes! My highlight was "Sa Calobra". I would really recommend this trip to everyone!

Really enjoyed this trip! Would’ve been better if we could ride the boat but the nerve racking coach ride through the narrow roads of the mountain wasn’t so bad! Special thanks to our tour guide Tolo and Bartolome our driver! Muchas gracias!

the tour covers some real highlights of Mallorca you would most likely miss otherwise, eg. the old-fashioned train, Torrent de Pareis, Lluc or at least not be able to cover in the same time span. So yes, this is highly recommended.

It was great, great vibes, great views, cocktails were decent ! Only thing I wished was better was the music they played on board. Very relaxing tour overall tho.

Fantastic tour - great tour guide Tolo, highly recommend!
