Basic information

 

Description of the excursion Caves of Drach and East Area 

After picking up our clients we proceed inland towards the town of Manacor, the second largest town in Mallorca, passing the village of Santa Margalida while the guide is giving you information on the tour itinerary and interesting local information.

 

On arrival in Manacor there will be a 40 minutes short visit to the pearl factory of Majorica where clients will have the opportunity to see the manufacturing process and learn the history of this emblematic Majorcan company. There is also a café and olive wood products exhibition and store where clients can see the wonderful patterns left by this gorgeous wood.

 

The visit to the Caves of Drach takes approximately 80 minutes. Here you will have the opportunity to enjoy the classical music concert and cross the lake Martel in small wooden boats which is an experience unique in the world. Lake Martel is one of the largest subterranean lakes in the world.

 

In the East coast area of Mallorca we do a sightseeing tour stopping at the pretty Cala Mandia for a stroll. Clients will also have the opportunity to visit a defence watchtower from the 16th century. Both places make a great stop for taking memorable photos.

 

There is opportunity for lunch when we stop at the seaside fishing village of Porto Cristo (90 minutes), here the clients have free time to explore and the guide will recommend nice places to eat and local points of interest and the beach if clients wish to go for a refreshing swim.

 

The final part of the tour includes a stop at a local liqueur establishment (30 minutes) this is free of charge and the clients are invited to taste as many local liqueurs as they wish. These include the popular local specialities of hierbas and Palo.

    Thank you so much. I booked the excursion for my son and his girlfriend, as an 18th birthday present for her.It was the first time either of them had been abroad without parents! I understand they almost missed the trip - they forgot about the bit where it said to ring the Office on their arrival until the very last minute. However, a very kind person picked them up in a car and caught up with the coach. Thank you again. It proved to be a fantastic trip for them, one they will remember for a long time.

    Somos una familia española, de un pueblo de Córdoba (Dos Torres), matrimonio y dos hijos adolescentes. En septiembre estuvimos de vacaciones en el puerto de Alcudia e hicimos 2 excursiones con esta compañía, excursión con catamarán hasta la cala San Vicente y excursión a las cuevas del Drac, fábrica de perlas Majorica y puerto. Estuvieron muy bien organizadas y todo el personal que nos atendió fue muy agradable tanto en la oficina donde contratamos las excursiones como la guía DORI y el conductor del autobús VICENTE que nos hicieron pasar un día inolvidable, seguro que la excursión no hubiera sido igual sin ellos. Un beso muy fuerte para DORI y para VICENTE, como veis no nos hemos olvidado de vosotros. GRACIAS.

    Great day out, apart from the caves we also visited Manacor, and had a couple of short stops near Cala Mandia which was a lovely place. A bonus in Porto Christo was that the Mallorca Classic car club had a rally and all parked up in the square by the harbour. Wonderful extra treat. Juan and Jose were our guides for the day and were really freindly , some of the travellers were more of the `Club Geriatrica` age group and a few were very late at pick up at hotels, and in getting back on time at the caves, Juan had to go out rounding them up, and therefore the rest of day was running a little late. One couple of old dears even got on the wrong bus after the liqour stop !!!!!! but were spotted and redirected to the correct coach. Even with all this , both Juan and Jose were still very polite and courtious. We were lucky to have the front seat upstairs and had a wonderful view all day. A lovely day out.

    "No frills excursions" is trustworthy place - you can rely on their expertness, courtessy, have a lot of fun. Start of trip was on time, our guide Madalena during accesing to Manacor and Porto Cristo related much information about Majorca and about passed the village, about history.. She gave us much guidance how the best use the time there. First place was Manacor and it's Pearls Factory - you can see how it's made and of course you can buy - there you 're sure it's orginal no made in china :) The next place -Cueves del Drach (Cave of Dragon). Really huge and long cave, lots of impressive stalactites and stalagmites, very good electic lighting, you can imagine many difrent shapes... big holes..mirror images in water of underground lake...experience of fairytale world. At the end of underground way you listen classic music from passing boats for about 10 minutes..next you can go by boat. The cave is impressing miracle of nature. Disadvantage is a mass of tourists there but it's obvious - everybody wants to be there. And this is not the end of adventure..a few minutes later you can see a beautiful landscape through bus window - nice small bays and visit Porto Cristo. This excursion is truly worth to recommend!

    A big thankyou to Tony and Xisco for helping to make our visit to Puerto Pollensa such a memorable one. Hubby and I took 3 tours with them, the coach, tram, boat, train and home again on the coach. Could have listened to these two guys talking all day as they have such attractive accents not to mention their sense of humour. We also went on the Rural Majorca trip, helping to buy the veggies etc at

    We were in Majorca at the end of June and took this tour with No Frills. We also took the Pirates Adventure Show excursion. Both were truly fantastic and knocked the spots off any competition. Professional, punctual and a pleasure to travel with. The Pirates Show is certainly not just for children - the acrobatic abilities of the performers were amazing. The Caves of Drach and East Area was great and made even better by the attention to details and care and friendliness of not only Juan, the guide but also the equally friendly driver Xisco ~ what a team they made! As promised we would like to mention that Juan had his name incorrectly spelt on a review on Trip Advisor (Hotel Uyal) as Joan. He and Xisco were highly amused that we had conjured up the picture of a mummsy type English female guide only to be greated by a very Spanish Juan. Thanks for making our holiday excursions so memorable. We will certainly be back and recommend such a professional company to our friends.
