It is a great program, the two caves are marvellous. Well organised trip with a longer free time at Porto Cristo, so you can swim in the sea. Please, if you book this excursion tell your kids beforehand that it is NOT funny to hold a clapping contest while the quartet plays classical music at the lake in the cave.

Brilliant couple of hours out at sea and looking along the beautiful coast line of major, lovely light music playing, and a reasonably priced bar, serving the best sangria
