I loved what we saw on this tour. It was so beautiful from the train, boat, and bus! Good value for the money and each stop was unique and beautiful on its own. I would highly recommend it! Yummy 2 Euro Sangria on the Boat! The bus drive up the mountain was precarious if you get car sick. There are a lot of tourists taking this tour and it gets quite long with so many pick-up stops. I would still do it again. The only negative was the drunk guys talking so loud we couldn't hear the guide(and it was morning!). We often had to go to him and ask what was said. In Spain, the culture was laid back so a tourist had to finally say something when it should have benn the guide.

Great day exploring. The caves of Drac was amazing and beautiful. We did feel a little rushed by our hosts. This is the only small critique. The knowledge of our guides was really good and they spoke each language beautifully. I will deffo recommend this trip. In fact we we recommended by friends in the Uk who said it was brilliant! It was. Happy day had by us.

That was the most beautiful boat tour we have ever done! The 3 men visibly enjoy what they do! An unforgettable evening with a beautiful sunset! The food was also highly recommended! We would book it again at any time!

Very well organized tour. One highlight follows the other. I love that the guide narrates the attractions personally and there are no headphones. However, we would have wished for more time in Soller.

Everything as expected, Sa Calobra is beatiful as well as the serpentine road.
