  • Just returned from a week in Puerto Pollensa Majorca and decided to visit the Caves of Drach, what a great day out. Juan the tour guide was brilliant and funny he recommended where to go for lunch and it was well worth the money. We also visited where they make the Pearls and had a Liquor tasting as well. I would definitely recommend No Frills Excursions the trip cost 40 euros and that included the cost of going into the Caves so good value for money I would say.

  • Our tour guide Juan and driver Rafa really looked after us from the moment we were picked up to the moment we were dropped off. We were in safe hands throughout the trip to the Caves of Drach. This was an all-day excursion and we had several stop offs to different places for photos, to the pearl factory outlet and liquor tasting. The coach was air-conditioned and offered a good view all-round of the surrounding areas. The Caves themselves were incredible. Like an alien world. I would thoroughly recommend this tour which is suitable for individuals of all ages, couples and families alike. (Juan is great with the little ones!) Many thanks to Juan and No frills for making our holiday amazing!! :)

    A trip to the caves is a must see during your stay at Mallorca. Inside the caves were spectacular and the orchestra on the boat was great. However, it was a little over crowded (we went at the end of August) and we felt like we were rushed through it. It would have also been nice to either read or listen to more background information about the caves. On this day trip you only spend about an hour at the caves really, but you do stop off at other places too which broke up the journey. The guide was really nice and gave us lots of information about Mallorca along the way. We went on a day when it was heavily raining, but the guides gave us umbrellas so you can't complain really. Would say that it is not really a child friendly trip as kids on our coach got really board and listened to music which meant we couldn't really hear the guide. The liquors to taste were the ones you put into cocktails so not really enjoyable to drink on their own, but the shop there sold nice things. Pearl factory was a little boring but the stop there was quite short. Natalie

    we had a great trip to the caves on monday, Juan and henry were great, Juan was really interesting and the caves were amazing. was great to see a little of the Island and lots if little stop offs made sure there was no losing interest :-) thanks juan and crew we are missing the island already :-) ps be great if you put the photos up, as our camera died and you took a family photo of us overlooking the bay xx

    This is an excellent trip, if you only do one make sure its this one. Our guide Juan was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic even though he must have done this trip loads of times. We got to see a lot more than we would have done if we had made the trip ourselves which we had considered doing. Porto Cristo is especially pretty and the caves themselves are awe inspiring. Thanks also to Rafa the driver for a safe and comfortable trip.

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    The caves are absolutely amazing. Thanks Tony for a great day out, showing us more of the island than we’d ever imagined.

    Es war eine sehr interessante Tour, die Höhle war wirklich sehenswert und die Reiseleitung erklärte alles geduldig. In der Höhle laufen halt Massen von Leuten durch und überall sind Aufpasser und brüllen rum, dass man nicht fotografieren darf. Trotzdem kann man sich alles gut anschauen. Wir waren in den Oktoberferien dort. Ich kann die Tour nur empfehlen, habe über das Internet gebucht.

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    This was a very enjoyable trip, we were unaware that we were going to the olive art or the pearl factory and puerto christo as the office had not told us. However this was a great suprise whenever we got there. The caves did not take too long to walk around and were very interesting, the boat trip at the end was enjoyable and was a great end to the caves. The bus took us to a few view points along the way which was well worth going to and we got to walk along a coastal route to get some nice photographs before stopping off in puerto christo for lunch. We got about an hour and a half for this which was a nice change from the resorts we were staying in. juan made this trip so much more fun, on the bus he spoke to us most of the way there telling us where we were at, and facts about the local history of the island. He was also talking about his own background and of the olive trees, this gave the trip a much more personal feel and made us feel more welcomed. He also provided us with wifi pin numbers so that we could use this on the coach, this service was free and very useful as it meant we did not have to pay in our hotels or resorts for the use of a computer.

    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.
