Our guide, Michael J., was a great guide on this tour. With his years of experience, he was able to share Mallorcan history as well as his knowledge of the wineries. He was friendly and accommodating and definitely made the great tour even more enjoyable.

Knowing the weather was going to be temperamental we booked via this app and walked past the hour queue wait. Highly recommend a visit to the cathedral it’s beautiful.

Entry was fast and seamless and the cathedral is amazing. Both from the outside and definitely from the inside. Truly awe inspiring.

Pablo takes great care of everyone on the trip! He also translates everything for any languages on the trip! Would 100% go again

Charismatic guide. Well planned tour with great views
