It is a great program, the two caves are marvellous. Well organised trip with a longer free time at Porto Cristo, so you can swim in the sea. Please, if you book this excursion tell your kids beforehand that it is NOT funny to hold a clapping contest while the quartet plays classical music at the lake in the cave.

Absolutely stunning caves. Only thing is that we was waiting too long in the queue to get in and it’s so many people in the same time. Should be organised better with that. But anyway everything else was amazing. Guide is great,bus very clean.

When u reach the bottom and the orchestra play the 4 pieces of live classical music in the cave … listen , enjoy the silence , enjoy the moment and respect the requests to not take out your phone …yeah don’t be one of them cunts.

Awesome. Went as a couple, but it would be great for families as well, as it was also enterntaining.

I was expecting a tour of the caves on the boat…but it’s only a walking tour.
