A fun tour exploring the town of Palma and its nearby beaches. We had an amazing guide (Mario) who explained the history of the different points of interest we stopped at. The leisurely ride is at an easy pace and mostly flat with occasional slight inclines and declines going through the town. The ride along the beach path was fun and we passed by 3 local beaches. I highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a fun way to explore the city of Palma for the first time.

The food was delicious, Cava/Sangria was lovely, the venues were great, easy to find and all really close together. As the guide messaged us before we started, we knew we could ask for help if we needed. It was a great way to see Palmer in our own time and it was amazing getting 5x dishes and 5x drinks for the price. In a couple of places it was quite slow service but I think it's because they were busy.

The tour was great. It was very uncomplicated (Jordi contacted us the day before the tour with more information), the waiters and waitresses were friendly and the tapas and drinks served were very good. Highly recommended!

We booked a work trip for 13 of us and had such a good time. It was a great way to try different restaurants and see the city. It’s only a short walk between tapas places. Everyone had a great afternoon.

We really enjoyed it, which was mainly thanks to Maja. She impressed us with her friendly manner from the start. We were able to follow the wealth of information with enthusiasm.
