Pros: They serve you a very nice meal of the catamaran and on the way back they go slowly to several nice areas around Palma so you can see the building and take pics from the boat.
Cons: We did this in May and the fast ride with lots of wind was chilly and the water was ice cold. They pulled into a beach area but to get to the beach you had to swim so we were trapped on the boat and were soo cold that the whole thing just sucked. If you do this do the tour in July or Aug and only if the weather is good. The crew were sweet but did not talk to any passengers nor did they actually explain what the sites we were seeing were. So as far as a tour...this did not fit the bill.
After purchasing this trip, we received the information that we have to contact the supplier by ourself to arrange the hotel pick up. After contacting them, we received an email telling us that they do not offer the cruise on Mondays but that he would arrange a replacement trip for us (we could not go on another day). He kept his words and got us into another catamaran. He even called my hotel to make sure we would received the information as soon as we would check-in. However, the main reason why we purchased this cruise was because we were going to visit 6 beaches. The cruise that we end up we end up with was for only 1 beach which we stayed 2 hours at. Food was great though. We were a bit disappointed about that and are still wondering why the cruise was offered online for Monday if the supplier does not run on this day... I would not book again on this website but you would definitely go back on a Catamaran tour in Palma!
Beautiful, clean and efficient
A great day! We would book this relaxing excursion again! Wonderful service!
We had a very nice day on the catamaran. They stopped a couple of times to let us swim and lunch was very nice along with the drinks. Crew was very nice as was the boat. Would definitely do this again.

Doing what: Mallorca in One Day Sightseeing Tour with Boat Ride and Vintage Train
The tour itself was lovely and everything run smoothly. The only criticism I have was that we were the only 2 English persons on the tour and by the time the tour guide had gone through the sightseeing information for the 5 other languages and finally got to the English version, we felt that we were an after thought and the information was rushed through. Also although it was different having a camera man following us about, he could have been a bit more creative than just asking us to stay still while filming. It was a fun day for both of us and I enjoyed seeing the countryside for a change rather than just the beach. Thank you
Although not cheap, it was a good value for the money. Certainly able to see the city highlights and the buses were almost on schedule at every stop.
We waited over an hour for the Hop on bus to arrive at our seaport. It did not come. Then we walked about a mile, saw your sign on a travel agent door, went inside to inquire and found that the buses did not start running in the city for another hour. When we booked with Viator, they gave us a different time schedule than was actually running that day. Other than that, the tour was very good.
yes good tour convenient for cruise port
again same headset problem
Excellent tour of Mallorca city. Highly recommended for short stays! :)
The audio guide did not work well, so we really just had a bus ride around town.
Have used the Hop-on Hop-off Tour buses in a few cities but the one in Palma de mallorca was excellent.The bus route was good and bus was clean with efficent earphones and recordings in good working order.I know that trips booked with Viator will be of a high standard.
These Red Hop On Hop Off busses are great value where ever you find them, really enjoyed the short time we had in Palma on this one.
I found it a great way to get around and explore the city.
Not very well sign posted as to where to get on the bus. Had to walk some distance before finding a stop and then the first bus took half an hour to arrive and was full so we had to wait again. Probably need more buses in operation for the number of people using them. Once we got on we felt we didn't want to get off anywhere in case we had to wait another hour to get back on a bus.
