Very nice and cool racing car!!! Recommend everyone to do it sometime! My husband enjoyed the ride so much, the only downside was the route itself. The route was a bit less and not at all what we expected, we drove a lot in the city and the last hour about some highways etc. During our ride there were very annoying people who totally ruined the ride! We had to stop twice because these people had to be warned. Everything else was absolutely fine! Highly recommended!

Maria was our guide and I can really recommend the lady to everyone! Super nice, made the whole tour very, very interesting! The tour also lasted the announced 2 hours and if you wanted, you could follow it a little through the city center afterwards. No queuing for the cathedral and the entrance fee was also included. So an absolute recommendation for the tour.

Our guide Saskia was so lovely, she knew lots of history and her English was great. The segways are a lot of fun, a brilliant way to get around. Overall a very enjoyable and interesting afternoon. This tour was best priced I found. Would definitely recommend. Big thanks to Saskia!

Equipment was perfect, Delia was a informative guard with a happy disposition and led us around the sights and back streets of Palma for two hours. We throughly enjoyed our time and would recommend the trip to one and all ages.

Nice tour, super good guide who tells nice stories. Thank you Sara!
