We loved this tour. The guide Juan was great. He was very knowledgeable about Palma and gave excellent information. The biking was not that difficult and we stopped often to hear the history of the island. Very enjoyable. Also get the Tapas!! They were delicious!! My only criticism was the directions to the bike shop were from Terminal 2. If you are sailing on the Symphony of the Seas or a ship that is not at Terminal 2 it is a MUCH longer walk than advertised. It was about a 30 minute walk.
We took the tour that combined the Tapas tasting. We started at the bike shop we took a taxi from our cruise ship because we docked at pier 6 that cost us 11.75 euros - which was perhaps a 6 minute ride - but they had a minimum charge. Our group of 6 are in our 50s/60s and some had not ridden bikes for years...and it was an easy and relaxing ride for all. Maurice was informative, interesting, knowledgeable- and made us all want to come back to this beautiful city. Highly recommend that you do the tapas tasting, we had the opportunity to try tapas that we never would be brave enough to try on our own!
I think that this business overbooked itself or was short of staff. We got there early and saw it send off a huge group from the cruise ship at 2:00 p.m. We came back at three and lone guide had to get the two of us on our bikes, etc., and then take us to pick up a group of six more at the other location. We did not start the tour until 2:45, that is, depart the other location to ride to the old city. He made the best of the time remaining. Very enjoyable. Our guide was great and the tapas were great.
What a great day biking around Mallorca with Ingrid! She was so much fun and this was such a wonderful way to explore the city with the limited time that we had. She took us to a monastery where we were able to buy delicious cookies from the nuns. I would highly recommend you book this tour with the option for tapas and a drink - it was great to hang out in the piazza eating delicious tapas!
This would have and should have been a really great tour, had it not been for the 22 of us, with one guide and some folks who should not have been on a bicycle tour in the first place. The tour would have been fabulous with perhaps a maximum of 12 of us!
This was a good tour BUT if you are docking on Symphony of the sea it is not a 2minute walk from the port as this ship docks at a port that is at the other side of the port, making it a 30 minute walk I had been to palma before and new this but other people did not so we had to wait for another group of 14 people to turn up 45minutes later . Not a good start, the cycle tour was very good with a great guy who took us to some interesting places in Palma .VIATOR PLEASE INFORM YOUR CUSTOMERS OF WHERE SYMPHONY DOCKS, AS THIS IS A GOOD 30MINUTE WALK.
Our family 1 had a fabulous time. Our guide was informed, if not overinformed. He barely took a breath. We had a good ride, and biking was fun. I would suggest a smaller group...there were 15 of us....too many. Have the guide get everyone together before talking. Have him wear a mic. Would be very helpful. We were late and he waited for us, so we were very grateful for him waiting for us.
I have been on other bike tours but this one was ok. The guide said it was not a race and we would get there together. The hills were a little more than I was used too. The steering around pedestrians, scooters and horse drawn buggies was a little tough. The guide constantly left me behind. At one point I was going to leave the bike and helmet and find my own way back. The tapas was good! In fact they were the best part of the tour!
