This excursion is a great value for the money. After walking off the cruise dock (rather long walk) there is a bus stop. They scanned our voucher and that was that. We rode the bus most of the day, first getting off at the Castle, and then later at the Cathedral. Later my wife went back to the ship to relax, and so after lunch I rode the whole circuit again (about an hour) just for fun.
Hop on Hop off excellent. I found this to be the best way to get around and see the sights at a reasonable cost.
We felt that the tour was a good value for the $. By buying the voucher online made it go faster when we tried to get the tickets in the bus line.
This worked out really well to get around the city with limited time.
This was really nice. We first took the bus for the entire ride around the city. We went to catch the bus at the first stop so we got the roof top seats, which filled up very quickly. After the first round around the city we the took it again and we were getting off at placed we found interesting and going back on the bus when we were done. It was really nice. Our first bus driver didn't know how to proceed with the Viator tickets, but did let us ride the bus. When we took it the second time, we got our tickets with no problems. Since Palma's attractions are far apart this was the best way to visit many of them in one day. Since we came on the cruise ship and the port is really close to the city, we actually went back to the ship for lunch and came back out again after. There is a stop located right in front of the port. Very convenient!
Had a wonderful time on this tour. Buses running on time, no waiting. Great day
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...
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
Bus stop just outside port, got a second bus once line became long. Plenty of buses and information
Bus stop is right outside the port. We had to wait as there was a crowd originally but they did get a second bus within 30 minutes. Was able to hop on and off as there was plenty of buses. Very nice and enjoyable as we did not have too much time there.
Thought it was great. Unfortunately the weather turned bad so it was very blowing and cold and we decided not to take the blue route but to return to the ship. It was a wise decision as about 30 mins after our return the rain came down in bucketfuls. I think we saw enough of Mallorca in the time we had. It is a lovely place and have never seen so many pearl shops in my life!
The tour bus was wonderful. It was on time, and sailed through the hills. I great way to see the city. The route is central, so hopping off is easy to do. - The bus is good value as it is 90 minutes
Pick up very convenient to cruise terminal - basically right outside. Would have been nice if staff provided a map. We found some laying on the ground so helped ourselves. Audio was sketchy, would fade in and out. Tried system at another seat which didn't work at all. system on 2nd bus we caught worked ok. Bus stopped at all the interesting locations. Was a good way to see the city.
Very nice way to see the city if you are on a cruise and need to return back to the port later in the day; one of the stops is near the cruise ship terminal which is only a few minutes away. Enjoy. Cindyvancouveraug2013
For a one day shore excursion, we took a one round highlights tour around Palma de Mallorca using the HOHO tour, explored the Cathedral (and the surrounding area), castle from the outside and Porto Pi. It was great for the few hours we had there. Some of the stops were very crowded and you need to stay in line for the next bus to arrive.
The Hop-on Hop-off was a great way to see the city of Palma de Mallorca. Some of the sightseeing attractions were far away from each other. The buses ran often. However, don't expect much information from the audio guide and not all buses had air conditioning.
