What people are saying about Balearic Islands

Juan was incredible with us, the visit would have been worth it just for his attention and care, but the sailboat is sensational. We did the whole day tour and loved the view, the company, the food and the whole experience. It was definitely one of the best days of our trip to Mallorca. On top of that, he lets us participate in everything during the trip, making everything even more special! We recommend it to everyone and will definitely do it again when we return to the island.

Excellent!! A wonderful outing, memories that will last! The guide was very friendly, took the time to explain to us and show the places. We didn't take a break on the beach as indicated in the description, but that's okay. The sunrise, incredible! Dolphins too! Bring very warm clothes!

Always so fun doing these scavenger hunts! We do one every time we visit a new city. It’s the best way to get around and see the sights, and find secret gems you wouldn’t otherwise know were there! Highly recommend!

Loved the guide. Gave a great experience. Made us feel welcome. Came 30 mins late and still waited. Would deffo recommend!!

I would recommend arriving by taxi as the walk from our hotel was up steep hills
