It was very worth it. You should really visit the caves. A great experience. The drive there alone was an experience, because during the drive the driver gave some information about the island of Mallorca in 4 languages. German, Spanish, French and English. There is a touching surprise in the cave. It's really worth it. Many thanks to the organizers for such a nice experience.

After reading quite different reviews I wasn’t to sure if this is fun or crowded af. But the value for money is great. I would have wished for longer swimming and island breaks but for that there’s other tours. This is a short trip. The sangria is great!! Get the sangria!!

Really enjoyed this trip! Would’ve been better if we could ride the boat but the nerve racking coach ride through the narrow roads of the mountain wasn’t so bad! Special thanks to our tour guide Tolo and Bartolome our driver! Muchas gracias!

Amazing place to visit. Was a little difficult to follow the guide because he was speaking in 4 different languages. It was amazing he had command of 4 languages but it made things a little confusing.

The excursion has been great, the guide spoke 4 languages and repeated all the explanations in all languages, very kind Sebastián. The caves are beautiful, worth visiting if you are on the island.
