Juan did a great job of keeping us entertained and informed throughout the trip. The transfers were made with ease. The experience was enjoyable and I would recommend to other holidaymakers. Francisco did a great job of driving us through the mountains and on our return back to our hotels. Great to see a part of the island not previously enjoyed or seen. Well done to 'no frills' also for making this available.

We enjoyed our trip. Able to stop at 2 locations to swim and use equipment. Only a handful of canoes and 2 paddleboards so had to wait for your turn. No snorkeling equipment - we took our own but water was not very clear. lunch was as described and tasty. staff were friendly and engaging. would recommend

I'll be honest- the activity was not for me but the guide was fantastic. I just felt bad as I didn't enjoy the activity personally but the rest of the group did! definitely worth it in a beautiful spot if you like the activity

Really enjoyed the tour. The tour guide Catalina has a great sense of humour, lots of interesting facts. Smooth trip into the.soller valley and Valdemossa which is difficult to reach on public transport

A great experience, nice people! Enjoyed the jet ski trip
