    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!

    went on the excursion on 27th June 2011, Juan made the day fun, and Henry came along for the ride, a good time was had by all, this excursion is much more than is advertised in the leaflet, it is well worth taking, many thanks

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    This trip was really good and we got to see lots of the island as well as the caves. tony and xisco and not forgetting herny they were very good taking time to take photos for you if you wished and showing you places you dont normally see. a big THANK YOU from us and see you next year.

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    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.

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    We did the caves excursion (from the club pollentia) with Juan and we would like tho thank Juan and the nofrills company for an excellent guiding !!

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    Just a short email to thank your company for some brilliant excursions. We did the Island tour with Monica, Valdemossa & Lluc with Catalina and The Caves with Juan. All amazing guides. I bet Thomsons don't like you very much!!! we have done excursions with them in other resorts and all I can say is you are much better. Having local guides was fantastic and they were all so friendly. They must get fed up with the repetition but if they do they didn't let it show. I will giving you great comments on trip advisor and your site if there is the facility to do so. Once again thank you for making our holiday. Please pass on individual thanks to the guides,(Tell Catalina we are the couple who spotted the black vulture.) Best Wishes and thanks, Barbara Maynard.
