Long bus ride
, Jun 2021
You should tell people that the experience will include a 3 hour bus ride, 1.5 each way as you are picking and dropping people off at different points. You could give the option to meet the bus at the last pick up point or something similar. There was no boat ride due to Covid but that should be in the brochure before you pick the trip.

The tour guide was the best part of this trip
, Aug 2020
Since the beginning of the trip, the tour guide was lovely. He surprised everyone by talking in 6 languages and the biggest surprise was when we found realised we come from the same country. He made the trip enjoyable and full of interesting information. Many thanks to Florin for making me feel like a VIP.

On balance a good day - read on...
, Sep 2019
This trip consisted on a visit to Sineu market, a visit to the Majorica Pearl Shop and the caves of Drach. The market stop really appealed to us as we like a bargain and there was enough time to get around a good few stalls looking for a bargain, trinket or present. There is a lot of stalls for those of you who like the cut and thrust of the barter. As with most stalls it was leather goods, clothing and a lot of imported tat. However there were also stalls with local crafts (pottery, olive wood products and a few antique stalls). The second part of the trip was to the Majorica Pearl Shop - this promised much but turned out to be not much more than a toilet stop. The top floor has live demos of pearl making and a vast display of the history of pearls (far to much to read about is the 30 minutes we had to stop - the lower floor was a factory shop but once again we were so short of time we really couldn't spend the amount of time to look at everything - on top of that - Jean felt the designs were too traditional (dated). Suffice to say by the time we had queued for the loo and had a quick look around it was time to move on. The Caves of Drach or Dragon Caves were the highlight of the trip and definitely worth the visit without spoiling it for people the sights of large caverns with their huge range of stalactites and mites beautifully lit with well designed paths and rails - guides to help at every turn and the lake concert at the end makes this a must. On balance a good day - around 6 hours from pick up to drop off so not too arduous for those of a less able disposition.

Nice trip in Mallorca
, Aug 2019
I am happy that I have chosen this Trip and from this page. Trip was well organised and we visited different places: Pearl Shop, Porto Cristo town, Caves of Drach. Unfortunately, we didn't know that there was more caves. So part of the bus was taken to caves (don't remember exact name of caves) and we were taken to Porto Cristo town. Here was very nice beach, shops, place to eat. Later all the group was taken to Caves of Drach. Here we go to the bottom of cave and lessened for live music. Full cave excursion took 1 h (because of a lot of people going down and up to/from cave. Totally worth it to visit.
Don't need a guide to do this

Spectacular site but you can do it by yourself: bus no 412 or 416 from Plaça D'Espanya. Otherwise you'll pay for a Tower of Babylon experience: same thing in 5 different languages all time long. Also be awere: a concert in a cave is not a place for small babies because the light will be completely off for a time, and the children start crying. However, the cave is amazing and you should definitely visit. Bonus: My wife got the shortest shopping sesion in a jewelry - only 20 minutes 😉
excellent!must do

Really wonderful, the caves are amazing and the timings are perfect the opera inside the cave is an amazing experience. the pearl factory was also not that bad as people write in the reviews it's quite informative and the products they have are good too, if you really select, i am sure you will be able to find one which suits you to keep as a souvenir.
Good but not great.
, Jun 2019
Guide was great but would have loved to forgo the factory to spend more time at the caves. Caves were crowded so be prepared for that. The short classical concert was neat.

We signed up for the 1/2 day tour cause we were on a cruise and wanted to come back early and they mistakenly put us on a full day excursion. It was cutting close. We came back on time, however we didn’t enjoy the Drach caves as much because we were worried about not coming back and hoping not hit traffic and miss the ship.
A pleasant excursion

This was a relaxing excursion lasted for half a day. We had a good driver/guide who kept timing in good order.
Caves are amazing, pearl shop ok.
, May 2019
The bus picked us up much farther away than all the other tour buses, but once we were on the bus the ride to the caves was great, the tour guide was friendly and the caves were really incredible. You probably won’t have time for the boat ride due to crowds and the time to return to the bus. I wish they skipped the pearl shop and we had more time to explore the caves.
