Nach Soller an sich muss ich nicht noch einmal hin, total überlaufen der Ort. Die Fahrt an sich dorthin ist aber superschön. Einfach auch sehr angenehm, dass der Guide die Tickets besorgt und man nicht selbst anstehen muss. Nach Port de Soller wäre ich lieber mit dem Auto weitergefahren als mit der übervollen Straßenbahn. ;-) Wir waren eine superlustige Reisegruppe, und der Guide Michael wusste einfach auf jede unserer Fragen eine Antwort.

We did the half day visit to the Caves of Drach and would really recommend visiting them it was a wonderful experience ( wait until the end with the orchestra’) My only downside was we had to wait over 30 minutes for the coach to pick us up in the morning and we were stuck at the docks with nowhere to get a drink etc

Really enjoyable day trip. Well organised, and interesting. Alcudia is a lovely town with good shops and places to eat. The trip took in some beautiful scenery, all done in the capable hands of an experienced driver. Would definitely recommend this trip to other travellers.

Pablo and everyone of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful during the tour, even providing recommendations for where to go on the island after the ride was over. It was a beautiful day for a ride and a nice intro to other parts of Mallorca.

Great tour. Everything was planned and carried out flawlessly.
