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.
This was the nicest port on the cruise.
Sail Date: May 2015
This was the nicest port on the cruise. Very clean, not quite as crowded. We truly enjoyed seeing the bull ring and the church. The pearl factory was not appealing, very crowded, not enough time to make a good decision.

The tour guide was not impressive.
Sail Date: May 2015
The tour guide was not impressive. She was hard to understand and I like to rethink I am open to accents but not this time. We were rushed through the cathedral to be taken to a pearl factory. Not impressed

The tour guide was very nice.
Sail Date: April 2015
The tour guide was very nice. People with mobility difficulties were able to stay on the bus. It was a very pleasant bus ride to see all the major sites. But I wish we could actually enter the castle and the cathedral.

What a beautiful city! We didntt know what to expect from Palma. The cathedral is among the most beautiful we saw, and the city and vegatation is gorgous. Our guide here was one of the best from the entire cruise, gave a LOT of historic information on everything and answered all our questions. We had free time at the end to walk around and enjoy the city and some gelato. They brought us to a pearl museum to show us how they make the famous palma pearls, and we couldn`t help like most but to buy a souvenir! Read Less

Visited the Castle and saw the great views from the parapets. Then visited the old bullring after an obligatory visit to a pearl factory. Then walked around the old quarter and visited the Cathedral. Interesting and informative guide.

We visited the Cathedral and the old castle. Our guide supplied wonderful narratives about the importance of the two sites. We were able to have a lovely tapas lunch with our guide in the old city area. Our guide arranged for walking tours of Palma, Valldemosa and Deia with transportation included for eight hours. She was very informative and cost a fraction of the ship excursion which did not offer the three sites, together in one tour. They offered only one per excursion and they were conducted at the same time of day for four hours each. Read Less

The tour was okay.
Sail Date: April 2012
The tour was okay. I wasn't too impressed with the guide. Other guides led tours up to the castle and the cathedral. Our guide pointed his finger, said to go that way, and be back at the bus in 20 minutes.

I didn't care for this as much as the others, although giving the choices at this port, it is still the only one I would choose. The PEARL factory was a disappointment - too many people, not that good of prices...... found the experience stressful. Bull ring was interesting. Too much time at these two stops as opposed to others where there was not enough. There was one stop where we got to go inside that was interesting. Didn't like the guide on this one as well either... so all in all .... maybe I'd stay on the boad at this port, and enjoy being by the pool, when most others are off the boat.... yeah, that is what i would do here..
