This was the best start of our vacation! Miguel and his crew were the absolute best and made the boat cruise so much fun. Make sure you bring a beach towel with you to dry off after swimming. People also brought their own snorkeling gear to use since they don’t provide any due to covid. Otherwise, there is a bar on the boat so you can have soda, beer, sangria. The views and water are so stunning this is an absolute must for your stay in Majorca!

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.

A true hidden gem off the beaten path! Wonderful gardens with incredible art and sculptures. Our 2-year old son loved to stroll and explore the property. There are a few exhibits that are included with the ticket. You need to book a tour if you want to visit the main house.

The boat ride was great, the guide was good. Sadly we barely saw the dolphin due to the weather, but this isn't something that can be influenced.

Exciting, I highly recommend, especially for families
