Good activity. The bus was about 50 minutes late, despite that everything was done on time. There were few people in the caves, so there was no waiting and the truth is that they are beautiful, you have to get to know them. I think stopping at the pearl "factory" is just to buy something, since they don't teach you anything about pearls. Excellent guide and driver! The guide was showing you things about the place along the way and the driver was driving calmly. You're back around 3:00 p.m. Worth it. Ahhh and Porto Cristo is beautiful. They give you about 2 hours and if you like to walk, you can take advantage of going to some coves nearby or eat in the different places in front of the beach.

Тур очень понравился! Мы были всей семьёй, включая детей и родителей! Приехали за 5 минут, экскурсия началась ровно в назначенное время. Гид был очень внимательный и раздавал на входе всем рации с желаемым языком. Очень классная идея организованных экранов на двух площадках с просмотром историческо-документальных сводок внутри пещер. Ну и заключительный концерт на подземном озере с лазерным шоу тоже очень понравился. Так что мы все остались очень довольны! Спасибо!

It was very worth it. You should really visit the caves. A great experience. The drive there alone was an experience, because during the drive the driver gave some information about the island of Mallorca in 4 languages. German, Spanish, French and English. There is a touching surprise in the cave. It's really worth it. Many thanks to the organizers for such a nice experience.

Amazing place to visit. Was a little difficult to follow the guide because he was speaking in 4 different languages. It was amazing he had command of 4 languages but it made things a little confusing.

The excursion has been great, the guide spoke 4 languages and repeated all the explanations in all languages, very kind Sebastián. The caves are beautiful, worth visiting if you are on the island.
