I was only in Mallorca for about 24 hours but I wanted To see the caves. No Frills Excursions Hosted this tour and they went above and beyond to make sure that I could have a great trip and get back to the airport on time. They went as far as to make a special stop for me near the airport. The caves were wonderful too and I likes the little town with the beach an shopping where we stopped for lunch.

The Caves are not to be missed beautiful inside and the concert inside the Caves is amazing. Lots of steps 120 down to the bottom and 120 back up so must be healthy. Not enough time in pearl shop factory and store . Also bus was late picking us up at port and transportation from two different buses not very convenient. The driver had an attitude that was not the best to represent your company. He would talk back to clients in an unfriendly way!!

The most important thing to know if you are arriving by ship is this company does not have any contingency plans for you if your ship is delayed. Our ship was delayed about 90 min by local customs officials and as a result we were 30
min late to the meeting location. I sent 3 texts to the emergency number that were read but got no response. I called and they basically said sorry not our problem take it up with viator. The tour may have been wonderful but with no guarantees relative to delays beyond your control you may get stuck and be out the money.

I did the half day tour to Caves of Drach. On the way there, we stopped at the Pearl Shop for almost an hour. The Pearl shop was unnecessary... it wasn't that interesting and I don't think anyone on the tour bought anything. We did make a short picture stop at Porto Cristo, even though it was not on our itinerary, and I felt that was a bit of a tease since we literally had 5 minutes there. Based on teh description, the full day tour offers a chance to Explore Porto Cristo on a panoramic sightseeing tour, which I didn't really care to do so I decided to book a half day to see the Caves of Drach only I figured I could make do without the sightseeing tour. I am glad I got to see the town during my half day tour, but once we were there, we saw that this town had a lot of restaurants and a blue flag beach with a sandy beach. We were dying to go for a swim, or at least spend a bit more time to enjoy the area! I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you book the full day tour, ask the supplier if there is time to swim at that beach, as the description does not indicate swim time. The half day tour was fine, but it felt more like a transport to Caves of Drach rather than tour, and could have been improved if we skipped the pearl shop or at least spent no more than 15-20 min there for a bathroom break and spent more time at Porto Cristo like at least 30-60 min to have a chance to walk around town, get something to eat, walk on the beach.

enjoyed the caves of Drach but the pearl factory I felt was just pushed in to sell us things. Basically just dumped for 45 minutes in a pearl selling establishment.

The caves of Drach had me saying wow especially with the beautiful formations. Sitting in the dark listening to music as a beautiful addition.

The caves were amazing was a shame you're only there for a short while. The orchestra playing on a boat rowing around the lake was quite good but due to the music not being amplified became hard to hear due to young children talking throughout. The pearl factory wasn't really my thing but interesting if your into that kind of stuff.
