Palma de Mallorca (Majorca) City Tour Excursion Reviews

Palma de Mallorca's winding streets make way to grand churches, yacht harbors, beaches, fountains and old castles. Sa Seu, a breathtaking Gothic cathedral, is a must-visit on any city tour.
Good views of Bellver castle, but you are not able to go in.

Good views of Bellver castle, but you are not able to go in. Way too much time spent at the Majorcia Pearl Factory. It takes about 5 minutes to see the way they make the pearls, and then you spend about an hour and half waiting to resume the tour. When you get back to Palma, you only have about 25 minutes to look around before the tour ends. Read Less

I think that I enjoyed the Palma city tour more than all the others. It's a small area and most of it can be covered with a walking tour. We visited a pearl factory, saw the bullring, and had an inside tour of the Cathedral.

The English tour guide talked so fast that we couldn't understand her even though it was in English! We were supposed to see a castle but the bus came upon a tree in the road. The police said that bad weather the night before caused the tree to fall and that the castle had the same trees surrounding it and that the tour around it was closed for fear of trees falling. Disappointing as I'd really wanted to see that castle. This was the third disappointment we had on Costa excursions on this cruise. Read Less

we had a mixed group with English speakers and Spanish speakers who spoke no English. That was OK, but the guide stopped the group to do both narratives, which slowed things a lot. She also didn't keep the group together, so several stopped and shopped & took photos for a good deal of time while the rest of us were waiting. Read Less

Read in advance that the port is one of the stops of HOHO, so was very convenient to take this rather than an organized tour (plus we are not 'sit on the beach' people). What I didn't know is that the HOHO is cash only, make sure you have enough for your group. The sights and tour were great, city is beautiful, but the HOHO itself was actually quite bad - TWICE we had to get off the bus, operator said there was a problem with the bus. Even worse, the second time it happened we waited for the next bus and there was such a large crowd bustling to get on, we thought we would simply wait for the next bus. Unfortunately, there was no next bus - we didn't know that the HOHO stopped at 8pm on Sunday. We waited half an hour before calling the operator number, who informed me of the hours and said their was nothing they could do. We weren't far from port (nothing is REALLY far in Mallorca) and taxi cost was not a big deal - just very frustrating that another bus would not have been sent under the circumstances of one bus breaking down and the next bus/last bus that would obviously be overloaded.
