What people are saying about Palma de Mallorca

History of Palma in a nutshell. Good short program and the cathedral is literally the next building. It is a good idea to buy the tickets for both.

Alejandro is en excellent guide, the program is well organised. We definitely recommend both the agency and the exact activity.

What a fun experience ! The crew was excellent and the spots they took us to were so beautiful

The main entrance is for the online tickets, which is closer to the sea.
