Full description
Experience a tour on the historic railway, lovingly called the "Red Lightening," between Palma and Sóller. Travel through picturesque landscapes and past orange groves and almond fields through the idyllic town of Bunyola. Once in Sóller, continue on your way to incredible Modernist houses. Experience not just the cultural but the culinary; sample orange crème ice cream at the world-famous "Fet-a-Sóller" cooperative. Then take the historic tram that connects Sóller with Port de Sóller. After an approximately 15-minute ride along the beautiful beach promenade, the train ends in the center of the little city. Walk through this idyllic port town, stop in a cozy restaurant and indulge in a 3-course meal. Then, take a comfortable minibus through the breathtaking panoramic stretch of the Tramuntana Mountains to the artists' colony of Deía. Climb to the highest point of the town and experience a sensational view over the heights of the Tramuntana Mountains, to the picturesque valleys, past the coast and over the sea. After a lovely walk, enjoy refreshments in the garden of the 5-star luxury hotel, La Residencia. The hotel houses true treasures; over 300 original pictures by artists like Miro and Picasso adorn the walls and sculptures are dotted across the garden. Continue to Valdemossa past a mighty forest of holm oaks and wander the idyllic little town. Visit the excellent museum of the painter Josep Coll Bardolet and see the famous Carthusian cloister where Chopin lived and worked. Enjoy free time to explore on your own amidst the beautiful homes surrounded by Mediterranean gardens full of orange and lemon trees.

There were only two of us and we had a private tour with Maria. She said a lot, but we always had a few minutes to explore the picturesque places like Sóller and Valldemossa ourselves. If you want to see something of the beauty of the island, this tour and heart is for you. It's really worth it!

Was a great, impressive experience!

The whole "package" offered fully met my expectations. Kudos to Maria, our guide! Your explanations about the history of the island and the explanations at the places visited were particularly informative! The choice of restaurant and the chosen dishes in Port Sóller were very good. And the stay at the Café Miró in Deià was great! A big “thank you” to Maria.

Great tour - great guide

A wonderful tour with a very dedicated Guide Maria. Since we were the only two guests, it had the appearance of a family trip, with many impressions, information and impressions of the wonderful landscape, technical phenomena such as the "Red Lightning" and the Tramvia and artistically inspired places. The tapas selection in the port of Sóller and the Kafferast in the garden of the dreamily located luxury hotel Residencia are a delight. A recommendation for everyone who is looking for attractions but does not want to be on the beaten path of bus tourists.
