Please bear in mind that there are two different itineraries depending on the day you choose to visit the Caves of Drach. Independently of the day you decide to take the trip the tour around the Caves of Drach themselves is always the same:
The visit has a duration of approximately 80 minutes. You will follow the route through the caves, marvelling as each cavern gets bigger and more impressive as you progress. The highlight of your visit will be enjoying the classical music concert inside the Caves of Drach and crossing Lake Martel's spectacular waters in a small wooden boat. This boat ride is a unique experience in the world and is included in the price. Lake Martel is one of the largest subterranean lakes that exist. During the visit you will also witness a magical light show that recreates the sunrise.

Throughout the journey our guide will share useful and interesting information about the tour's itinerary as well as giving you an insight into the local culture .
On arrival in Manacor there will be a 40 minutes visit to the Majorica pearl factory. There you will have the opportunity to see the rigourous pearl manufacturing process and learn about the history of one of Majorca's most emblematic companies. While there you will also be able to purchase goods at outlet prices. The perfect remembrance for you or your dearest ones from your holiday in Mallorca.
The visit to the Caves of Drach will then take place as stated above.
On the East Coast area of Mallorca we will make a short photo stop at a defensive watchtower from the 16th century where you can take memorable photos and have fun learning about the pirates of Mallorca.
You will have time for lunch when we stop at the seaside fishing town of Porto Cristo (90 minutes). Here you have free time to explore, relax, eat and enjoy its beach. Lunch is not included but the guide will recommend nice places to eat and local points of interest. Also, if you wish to you can go for a refreshing swim in Porto Cristo's stunning turquoise waters or simply sunbathe on the beautiful sandy beach.
To round off such a great day, the final part of the tour includes a stop at a local liqueur establishment (30 minutes). There, free of charge, you will be treated to taste as many local liqueurs, with flavours that go from herbal to berries, as you wish. These include the popular local specialities of Hierbas and Palo which are a must when trying the liqueurs.

Fab trip, varied with 5 different stops during the day. The timings were perfect, the activities varied and Catalina our tour guide was amazing - funny, informative, quirky!! The time flew by and I don't usually enjoy organised excursions like this so it was a real surprise!!
Excellent- we had Juan and Fernando, superb, very lovely pair who really tried to connect with the guests on the bus, even down to the guide showing us snaps of his homegrown veg! Caves were stunning as was the show, but the wait for the boat was ridiculously long and not worth it when you realise how short the distance is! Lovely day, with nice stop for lunch near the beach. Also, the wine/liquer tasting was fun and really did help with the siesta on the way back to the hotel! Do this trip, its great.
We booked the caves of drach which was amazing but I must say that the island tour was absolutely the best, the views from the coach was stunning enough and then you had the boat, tram and train ride and also the stop off in solver. Worth every penny of the 62 euro, thank you too duncan,and the whole of the team, Albert and the driver whoI'm so sorry I can't remember his name. Wish I could give u more than the 5 stars
We booked the caves of Drach trip through our hotel It was around €40 euros each. We stopped off on the way at a pearl factory and a tower where we could take some good photos. The caves of Drach were amazing, I have never seen anything like it before! Then we went to Porto Christo for a lunch break which was a beautiful place. Finally on the way back we stopped at a liqueur factory where you could taste as many as you liked!! Our tour guide Cat made the day even more enjoyable as she was friendly, funny and very knowledgeable! We both were really pleased we did this trip and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to see some of the island!
Booked via the Internet for a full day excursion to the Drach Caves and Porto Christo in Mallorca. I had previously thought with all the steps in the caves that I wouldn't be able to go with my 1 year old son. However after reading the no frills website I was sold by the fact that they allowed you to leave your buggy on the coach where it would be looked after. We booked two days in advance via their website which was a breeze to navigate. They emailed a confirmation and then a follow up email within a few hours confirming the coach pick up point and time. Our pick up point was right around the corner from our hotel - ideal. The day included the coach, driver (Pedro) and a tour guide (Juan). Pedro was so helpful getting our buggy on and off the coach for our little one and Juan was informative and funny throughout the day. Thanks to both for making our day most enjoyable. We also were taken to a Pearl factory and to a drinks outlet as stop off points to and from the main attraction. It was a full day experience and one I would most dominate,y recommend. Great value too.
Went with no frills excursion to caves of Drach and Porto cristo. The driver and Juan made the trip special, very well organised and Juan kept us in laughter with his humour. Would really recommend as it was all organised just needed to pay and turn up for collection, hassle free. Thank you for a fabulous day.
We booked the Cuevas drach day tour our bus driver Francisco was lovely, the guide katrina or Katie was amazing so knowledgeable engaging funny, a real asset to your company, the bus was comfortable and the day was very enjoyable, it was really good value for money. firstly we went a viewing point overlooking a beautifull beach then the pearl shop, after that more photos over-long the sea at an old War look out tower, then we went to the Caves, after that Porto cristo. Although lunch not include plenty of choices of places to eat. wouldn't hesitate to recommend to everyone and will be booking again when we next visit majorca Thank-you
Visiting an all inclusive resort we were not going to head out much but decided to do the Caves of Drach day trip with NoFrills. I can safely say that the service was brilliant. We were picked up on time from Playa de Muro, the bus was clean (although the windscreen looked like it lost a fight with a low hanging tree) air conditioned and comfortable. Our guide Cati was on hand throughout the tour giving us an insight into the island, its inhabitants, traditions and other bits of trivia as well as details of the places we were going to see. Stop 1, an hour drive from Playa de Muro (including a couple of other pick up points) was a pearl factory. Not my cup of tea but the other half liked it. Stop 2, a tower with lovely views over the harbour and island. Stop 3, the Caves of Drach. This was very busy (I'd imagine it would be even worse in high season) but we were allocated a time slot so no issues with waiting. The tour itself lasts around 90 minutes and includes a short concert and a boat trip. Stop 4, Porto Cristo, 90 minutes lunch break. We had lunch provided by the hotel so spent this time looking around and enjoying a beer. Stop 5, Liquor tasting. You can try 20 different liquors in various flavours and alcohol content. Then it was back to the hotel. A great day out. Well organised and friendly staff guarantees that I'll use NoFrills again.in.
I had an excelent time on the No Frills Caves of Drach Excursion. Our guide Joan and driver Xisco made sure we were well informed and entertained on the way, we stopped off at a couple amazing view points where we got the chance to take amazing fotos. The highlight was visiting the actual caves, which I did not expect to be so espectacular included a boat ride in the underground lake in the caves well and this was also included in the price. Thanks No Frills for the great staff,organization and a wonderfull experience.
We visited the caves of drach in September, the tour guide Albert made us feel interested and entertained from start to finish. Also Francesco the driver gave us a safe and comfortable journey. Thankyou
