A great way to go from place to place! Or just sit back, relax and enjoy the views! A beautiful place!
Great tour but had difficulty with audio.
I was not as impressed with the city. There really aren't such great things to driv eby on a bus tour as in other cities such as Rome or Paris. They did OK with what is there but Palma de Mallorca is kind of just another city - with one big old cathedral though.
Just ok should have just gotten off at the town area not that great thanks any ways . Also the entire city area is littered with earphones from hop on off clients giving up and throwing their earphones on top off roofs in trees and lamp posts. Not very informative
we didn't realize we were just going to tour the outskirts of the city but now many smaller cities have closed off their city centers to vehicles. But it still was ok.
Good way to visit Palma de Mallorca.
Easy to get on, right by the cruise terminal. Buses ran often and we had no trouble finding the stops. Great, inexpensive way to get around.

Great experience and tour guide.
The sightseeing tour is an ideal way to get your bearings in Palma. We jumped on about one hour after checking into our hotel and used the hop on-hop off a couple of times in the city. My only criticism is that the commentary free headsets was a bit stale and sometimes inaudible.
This was our first time in Palma and the bus was a great way to get an overview of the entire town. Perfect for a cruise since city center is a good walk away...and back again when you are tired at the end of the day.
We arrived by ship to Mallorca and went to get in line for the hop on hop off bus. There was a huge line as they were issuing tickets from vouchers one by one. We finally got on the 3rd bus that came by after waiting for nearly 45 minutes. This was disappointing since we didn't have that much time to visit the city.
The buses performed as expected for a hop on-hop off tour. I agree with most other comments about the city. A couple negatives to add however about the bus service in Palma. I had downloaded a map from the website before we left for our cruise vacation. The map they had on their website did not match the actual route the buses took. In fact, the map I had downloaded indicated there was a stop by the cruise ship terminal which apparently doesn't exist any longer. We had to log onto our phones GPS so we could see where we were in relation to the next stop that showed on the map I had downloaded from this website. We finally found a bus stop location and hopped onto the bus. I agree with many of the comments that a few of the bus stops are not easily recognizable as they are in Barcelona because they do not use the same type of signage. We were disappointed that when we got onto the bus and exchanged our voucher for the ear buds, the bus driver had run out of maps since the one I had printed was not accurate so we were on the bus not really knowing where we were going for awhile until we got off at the next location. Not sure why the bus driver would run out of maps at 10am shortly after they start operating for the day? Anyway the city is beautiful as others have said...but this is a rating for the bus itself not the city. Compared to our experience with the Barcelona Hop On Hop Off, this gets only a 2 out of 5.
This hop on hop off is a waste of time. You get off the ship and everyone is waiting fopr the same bus. They don't give preference to the folks who pre-bought tickes prior to the vacation. Everyone has to wait in the same line so why buy tickets ahead of time if there's no benefits at all. It took us about 70 minutes to finally get on a bus and the only seats available were in the back of the bus, in from of the hot engine. We did not get off the bust at any of the stops because we worry that we will not be able to get back on an empty bus back to the cruise port. Bottom line iswe just zipped right by the sites and then back to the cruise ship. Will never do this hop on hop off bus in Mallorca again. It's just not worth it at all..
From the beginning the information was incorrect.Allure of the Seas which was informed that we were on
docks at the commercial port and it is at least 45 minutes to get out of the port area.We had to walk for almost 1 hour and after my 75 year old Mom was exhausted,we had to take a local bus no taxis in this area to get us to the center of the city where the HOP ON HOP OFF BUSES where located.
After the tour we also paid additional transportation from the Cathedral to be able to get to port on time..bad information,not organized ...you should know where the cruise ships dock!!!
Bus service was quick, good balance of stops/interesting sites, exactly as described.
This was very convenient. I liked the excursion
Great way to see the most in a short period of time.
we only had 5 hours to spend on the island and this tour offered us a way to make one complete round to see the major points and then get off where we wanted to. Easy to find it was right out of the port not too far to walk.
Great idea here as we had only a few hours to look around. It was right outside our ship when we arrived. The driver was not the nicest when we were first picked up. Think he was having a bad day! Later on thought we had the absolute best ticket guy and driver. He was extremely helpful and fun. Would do this one again
Take this tour, if you have the opportunity. It was a very pleasing experience.
Cruisers from NCL Epic.....Recommended if you have plenty of time to really tour the city and hear the history. Affordable at 17 euros. The city is very clean and full of history but because of limited time unable to see a lot of places...
If you are only staying in Palma for a few hours, this is a good way to get to see the main sights.
Not a fan of hop off tours-pick up points not well labelled.
It was appropriate for our needs, but minimal.
