Given wrong address to meet . Phone number provided did not work. Had to spend and extra €8 euro on taxi to get to different part of the city . Guide not really clued up on the history of Palma. However , experience was good fun and was better than having to walk around the city . Just would’ve been nice to get more info and history.

Very good experience We were given very good instructions/training re using the Segways Guide ensured there were no issues and he conducted a lovely informative tour of the main sights Also no problem that we arrived 5 mins late
