A fantastic experience. Our guide, Brigitte speaks all the languages that are offered fluently, which meant that extremely interesting conversations were possible without any hurdles. Not only what she had to say about Mallorca, the customs, traditions, values and legends was interesting but also her as a person. She told me about Mallorca with enthusiasm and a lot of love, which sweeps you away. We learned a lot today and it was a wonderful trip. Thanks so much!

Me and my friend thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Paulo was knowledgeable. He gave lots of facts about the cathedral and Majorca. We travelled around to various places.in Palma. Some we wouldn't have seen if on foot. I was surprised that it only took 5 minutes to be comfortable on the segway I was a bit shakey but I soon got used to it. It was absolutely brilliant and I recommend this tour.

The tour was conducted by Meik. It was really great! Meik is very knowledgeable and can answer all questions. He is very personable and made the tour very pleasant in a small group. We would book it again and again!
