The Island Tour excursion consists of different parts: road, sea and rails. Let us take you down the west coast of Mallorca where you will see some of the most breathtaking views in the Mediterranean and where you will discover the UNESCO protected Serra de Tramuntana mountain range with our knowledgeable guide.
After picking up the clients by coach the tour proceeds to the spectacular Tramuntana Mountain Range where we can enjoy the views that this area offers as we drive along the spectacular and much photographed mountain road to Sa Calobra and take some great photographs.
We arrive at Sa Calobra where our clients have free time to relax and enjoy the dramatic views. We always make sure we arrive early so we can see Sa Calobra at its best, when it's quiet and peaceful before other tour groups get there. This means that our clients can discover the Torrent de Paréis gorge at their leisure before the crowd arrive.
After the visit to Sa calobra we board the boat to Puerto Soller The journey lasts 40 minutes and along the way you will see spectacular views of this dramatic coastline that cannot be seen from the land.
On arrival in Puerto de Soller we have free time, our guide can recommend a nice place to have lunch or you may wish to explore, the choice is yours.
After the free time in Puerto Soller we take the tramway along the sea front and up through the orange and lemon orchards to the town of Soller where there is time for a short visit before we board the Soller wooden train. This is the original journey and very little has changed in its 100 years of operation.
The train ride takes us through the valley of Soller through the tunnels in the mountains and through the countryside to the outskirts of Palma.
Finally we board the coach at the station to take you back to resort.

Excellent company and staff/guides. Have been visiting Alcudia well since 1988 and did our first No Frills trips around 2006. The island tour is far the best value and day out, always to be repeated my us. This time I brought a friend to the island who was most impressed with the trip and Alcudia. My husband and I will be returning later in the year and yes another tour.
Absolutely fantastic day, excellent way to see the mountains, coastline, a truly well organised trip, would recommend this as a must do
Our Island tour was only made better by the great guide Juan along with his trusted driver Xisco and Henry the mascot who made sure we didn't get lost... The tour was well run, great value for money and very enjoyable. Spectacular scenery, knowledgeable and friendly guide... what more could you need...
I can't say enough about this tour and the tour guide catalina she was just amazing she was so naturally pashionate about all things majorcan it was just a joy to listen to her. Some tour guides have their one cheesey jokes but everything Catalina said was so convincing informative. I can't recommend no frills enough and my only regret is I was there long enough to go on any more tours with them
We booked the island tour that included a boat trip, tram from the Port of Soller and train from Soller based on reviews on tripadvisor, and we weren't disappointed. We were picked up at a convenient spot close to our apartment in Puerto Pollensa and left on time - early in fact so there was no hanging about waiting to get going. Our guide Dori was great - full of info and really friendly. The trip was well organised and whilst it wasn't cheap we thought it was good value as it meant we were able to see parts of the island we wouldn't have done otherwise. I would definitely book another trip with No Frills again.
This trip is really amazing first you go by coach up the mountain to see great scenic views of the island then you go by boat to a place called Soller once again with fantastic views of the island by sea , then a tram ride on the original 1912 trams,and follow that with a ride on the original train that transported oranges and lemons way back from 1911. Then it's a ride back by coach to your hotel . What really made the trip was the guide ( who was always talking ) JUAN was just BRILLIANT he told us everything you could possibly want to know and a lot more , he was informative but more than anything he was FUNNY AND FRIENDLY. A special mention also for FERNANDO the coach driver he was EXCELLENT the way he manoeuvred the coach around the tight hairpin roads 600 metres above sea level was nothing short of phenomenal. A trip I could recommend totally . Also a special mention for "NO FRILLS EXCURSIONS " a brilliant company providing an excellent service ,obviously run by people who want holiday makers to sample local culture etc without being ripped off by holiday firms . Just by booking through them we saved €50 on the same trip offered by our rep . THANK YOU NOFRILLSEXCURSIONS for providing us all with lovely memories of our visit to Majorca
We booked the island tour whilst staying in Alcudia. Our guide was Alberto who was absolutely fantastic! He was full of passion for his job and gave us good information all day on the island and its history. The tour involved a coach up into the mountains, a boat trip, (we saw under the gorge just before boarding the boat), a tram ride in a beautiful seaside town and then on to a stunning old fashioned train which showed us the lemon and orange groves of the area and went through so many tunnels. All in all I'd say this is the best trip I've ever done abroad (and I've done a lot) with hands down the nicest guide Alberto. Highly recommend!
Brilliant tour to get a real feel for the true Majorcan countryside - bus throught he mountains with wonderful and dramatic views, boat between 2 small ports, tram&train through olive&lemon groves of Soller. Tour guide and driver ( both named Juan) were both excellent
Booked the island tour yesterday for the trip today. Service in the No Frills office was very good. Picked up on time for the tour today. Enjoyed a hugely scenic coach trip through the mountains which included a stop off for a coffee at a view point. The tour leader Albert was interesting and amusing throughout. The coach dropped us at Port de Sal Calobra where a short walk takes you to a stunning cove that looks like something from Jurassic park. We then boarded a boat for a scenic trip along the coast and the stunning cliffs to Port de Sóller where we had time for lunch before taking the old tram to Sóller town. After a quick ice cream break we boarded the old train to Palma which winds through the mountains and many tunnels. The coach was there to pick us up and take us home when we got off. The organisation of the tour was excellent, Albert was always on hand if you need anything and was very clear in directions, times and meeting points. The bus driver was also superb. The tour does take quite a lot of time (around 9 hours I think) and at the hight of summer as it is now the temperatures of 32c or more can challenging at times but we all enjoyed it (including 5 year old daughter and 12 year old son) just remember to take sun cream, hats and to drink plenty or water.
we were collected promptly very near the hotel. Our guide was Juan - most lovely person! Juan entertained us with jokes and lots of information as the coach travelled inland up and down the mountains. The roads are not for the faint hearted as they are steep and narrow but Juan said James was 'the best driver in the world'. we safely navigated the mountains and stopped at a cafe for refreshments, where we could take in the glorious mountainous views - stunning! Then back on the coach down to the port. We has about 20 minutes to admire the beautiful port. It was actually a secluded cove. We boarded the boat and travelled close to the shore to admire the rock formations and sea views. We went on a lovely tram but I cannot remember much about that bit of the day. We then travelled to Port de Soller. It was stunning! It actually felt very 'Italian Riviera' with its pizzas and ice-creams. We explored the town. I bought some Sketchers trainers for €45 - bargain! The church here was gorgeous. It was quiet and dark and a welcome peace in all the holiday excitement. Next, it was time for the train ride. It's an old, original train that's rickety and authentic. We sat on the balcony between carriages rather than in a carriage. We travelled high into the mountains with excellent panoramic views. There were tunnels through the rock, one being 2 km long which was cold - a rare feeling in the height of summer! Finally the train pulled into a little station and the coach was was there waiting to take us back to the hotel. A BRILLIANT day out with FANTASTIC staff who are worth their weight in gold! They could be bored and indifferent, doing the same trips each day, but they weren't . We were made to feel special from start to finish.
