Doing what: Palma de Mallorca City Hop-on Hop-off Tour
Arrived in a cruise ship on Friday june 10, first inconvenience was that ad mentioned the bus started at 9:30 but same did not arrived until 10:30 and only accepted 8 passengers since it was full, when you have limited time hour and a half is way too much to wait for a bus.
The first bus was to start at 9.30 but did not get to the port stop till 11:am.
Good way to get to see everything in the area, and then go back and see what you are most interested in. The stops are frequent enough. Dont expect the drivers to be tour guides, you simply listen to a recorded audio, and then get off and explore what you want. Still worth it, and it allows you to explore all day....
THE BUS STOP WAS IN FRONT OF THE MARITIME STATION WHERE OUR SHIP WAS DOCKED.
It was easily accessible and the voucher was quickly recognized by the personnel.
It does the job.
Long queues at the bus stops, but otherwise it was very good.
At the port, there was no line for this bus - instead, there was a mob. Everyone, including the two tour bus employees responsible for collecting payments and vouchers, seemed to just think that crowding the bus was the best way to go. When one of these employees finally did decide that some organization was necessary, she was very rude to the crowd as she motioned and barked for people to move further away from where the bus was stopped. Even then, she didn't put any effort into encouraging the formation of a line. In the meantime, people were cutting into the crowd left and right. The tour itself was decent, but the driver stopped for long periods of time for reasons that were not clear to us and so we felt like we lost significant time in traveling on this bus.
Great way to see the highlights of Palma de Mallorca since this small city is very spread out with a lot of hills. The tour is a great value and delivers on service, cleanliness, information and ease of use.
Photographic opportunities are limited since bus is almost constantly moving.
This was not a stellar performance and I would hesitate to recommend it. First, I was extremely disgusted with the initial bus driver. Numerous people were attempting to board, and the bus driver refused to take any more passengers since he was full. Even though we had a prepaid ticket and we counted 16 empty seats, he said we had to wait for the next bus in 25 minutes. My guess is that he was trying to keep on schedule. If so, the bus company should have additional ticket sellers to ride on the bus to collect tickets. Second, the narrated portion or sound system did not work--maybe only 1 out of 4 sound jacks would play--so we missed a lot of the narration of the sights and had to settle for using one jack between both of us.
