It was an interesting trip, I could see a lot and have the experience of boat, train and tram. The most we stayed, as a break, was 2 hours at Sa Calobra - where you have two options - eat and get souvenirs or take a bath on a nice strip of water just as the one at Cala D'Or. I took the first one as even though it's mid September, at the beach it was very crowded and the sea was agitated. If you want to have a seat up on the boat not down on deck then you need to be with 40 min before the departure date on the boat. Overall it was worth the money.

It was amazing , from the sa calobra port , to the soller , train , tram and boat , everything was perfect . Only thing we kinda didn’t like was the guide , he was an amazing guy , verry informative and helpfull , but he spoke most of the time in German , and other people wasn’t understanding much .

What a great day! From start to finish our guide Tolo and driver Jose were absolutely fabulous. The bus, train and boat rides were amazing. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Mallorca.

The cave it self was amazing , verry big and well organized . The music concert is quite breath taking .

eine lustige, etwas andere art die stadt zu erkunden.
