    We recently went on this excursion with Juan, Fernando and Henry. It was a great day out, Juan regaled us with stories and information about the area we were passing through. The kids in our party loved the day as well, ending up thoroughly worn out after a great day out.

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    Second time we have used No Frills and it was just as good this time around. Great value for money, very user friendly and Cati our tour guide was brilliant - oh and the caves were just amazing as well. So thanks for a great day out, will definitely use you again!

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    Having used No Frills for trips previously we booked Rural Mallorca and got exactly what was advertised as we have come to expect from this excellent company. Michael and Cisco made this excursion fun, relaxing and very informative. The barbecue lunch was most enjoyable too. Would not hesitate to use No Frills for future visits and recommend their services to other holiday makers. Visited May 2015

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    Fantastic value for money excursion. Top driver Xisco and guide Juan along with Henry the elephant made the day special. First stop the pearl factory with free gifts for the kids. Caves of Drach are quite spectacular. Next stop Porto Cristo for a relaxing hour and a half. Lovely little town. Final stop the liqueur factory with lots of free tasters - very nice!! If you only do one trip on your holiday, it has to be this one x Visited May 2015

    We visited the Caves of Drach with the lovely Juan. I had heard him mentioned in reviews when researching whether to use No Frills. Juan was very knowledgeable and friendly. He made the journey there and back pleasant and interesting with some local stories and history. He built up the caves before you got there so you knew what to look out for when in there. He takes photos during the trip and uploads them to facebook which is a really nice touch as we got a few extra photos of us together. Thank you Juan we had a lovely time and would happily use No Frills again! Visited May 2015

    We went on the day trip to the Caves of Drach on the 25th May. Had a fantastic time with Xisco our driver and Juan the tour guide. Juan was very entertaining and kept us laughing throughout the day as well as being very informative about the areas we travelled around. The tour itself was great and definitely one to book. The caves are stunning and well worth the visit alone however the stops to the watch tower, pearl factory and liqueur tasting made the day complete. Visited May 2015

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    We went on the caves of drach trip with nofrills, a most enjoyable day. The guide, juan, and the driver, pedro, were both very friendly. Juan impressed us with his stories and knowledge as we travelled across the island and was excellent throughout the day. The caves were spectacular and we also enjoyed the other stops before and after. Would highly recommend this trip, was definitely value for money. I'd also go on another trip with nofrills again if I ever return to Majorca. Visited June 2015

    Having seen quite a few reviews on here for this company I decided to a book a tour to the Caves of Drach with them. The company name was a bit off putting to me, but I needn't have worried. The booking was simple and the office was easily found if needed. Katy (the guide) and Chisco (the driver) were great, friendly, welcoming and amusing. There were a few minor stops included in the tour and the "biggest coach in Mallorca" was comfortale and clean. I would recommend this company, even with this name there were no corners cut. An absolutely brilliant day out. Visited June 2015

    We booked an excursion to visit The Caves of Drach on 04/06/15. Juan our tour guide and Xisco our driver made us feel like they were two friends taking us to all their favourite places on the island. In addition to The Caves of Drach they took us to the Majorica Pearl Factory, Porto Cristo for lunch and to a Liqueur/Gift store on the way home. They stopped for photo opportunities and really made children feel part of the day with the help of Henry the elephant. We would highly recommend this excursion thank you Juan and Xisco for a lovely day. Visited June 2015

  • puntopuntopuntopuntopunto

    Loved the Caves of Drach tour 25/6/15. I went with my Mum, and two boys aged 16 and 9 and we all had a ball. Juan was an excellent tour guide and Xisco a great driver. They kept us entertained all day. The name No frills excursions doesn't sound promising but it was probably the best coach trip I have ever been on. Having water available on board at a very good price was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend them. Thank you Juan and Xisco x Visited June 2015
