The Island Tour excursion will keep you charmed all day thanks to its different parts: road, sea and rails, with plenty of free time in between. You will be taken down the spectacular west coast of Mallorca where you will see some of the most breathtaking views in the Mediterranean. There you will discover the UNESCO protected Serra de Tramuntana mountain range with our knowledgeable guide who will be giving you interesting information on the towns and sights we come across during the day.
Once everybody has been picked up by coach the tour proceeds to the stunning Tramuntana Mountain Range where we can enjoy the views that this area offers as we drive along the breathtaking and much photographed mountain road to Sa Calobra where you will be able to take some great photographs.
Then we will arrive at Sa Calobra where you will have free time to relax and enjoy the dreamy landscape. 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 bustle begins.
After the visit to Sa Calobra we will board a modern boat that will take us to Puerto Soller. The journey by boat has a duration of approximately 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 you will have have free time to explore, relax and have some lunch. Our guide can recommend a nice place for you to have lunch or you can stroll around looking for a place of your liking.
Once everybody has unwound and has had something to eat in Puerto Soller we will take the tram along the sea front and up through the orange and lemon orchards to the town of Soller where we will have time for a short visit around its charming historical centre before we board the famous Soller wooden train. We will follow the original journey which has barely changed in its 100 years of operation.
The train ride will take us across the impressive valley of Soller as we go through the tunnels in the mountains and the countryside until we reach the outskirts of Palma. There our coach will be awaiting us to head back to resort.
Lunch is not included, but we stop at Puerto Soller where there is time for lunch and a wide selection of cafes and restaurants.
The excursion starts between 08:30-09:00 and it comes to an end at about 17:30-18:00.
The pick-up point and time are confirmed to you after you have made your booking. You will be picked up at your hotel or a nearby meeting point. Once you make the reservation you will receive two emails:
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.
We booked to do the Tour of Majorca through No Frills excursions and it turned out to be the highlight of our holiday. The air-conditioned coach picked us up near to our hotel and we were greeted by our guide for the day, a gentleman called Juan and our driver, James. We climbed the Tramuntana mountains to a cafe where we stopped for a drink and ice-creams. The journey is lovely with fantastic views and plenty of photo opportunities. We followed the mountain road to the beautiful port of Sa Calobra. We had half an hour here before boarding a yacht for a cruise lasting approximately 45 minutes - the coastline is beautiful and we were taken to the Port of Soller. We had an hour here to browse the shops and restaurants before boarding a tram to the centre of Soller - again, there is a small stop here before boarding a train to Palma where you meet the bus - which took us to the door of our hotel. Be prepared for a long day - but a very rewarding day. The views of the island are amazing and it was good to get away from the tourist route and experience the island from the Mallorcan's point of view. I have to praise the tour guide Juan - he told us he had done this particular tour on lots of occasions - but he spoke with an infectious enthusiasm that can't fail to impress. He answered questions patiently and with great knowledge and really went out of his way to ensure that everybody had a great day. Thank you Juan. I would definitely recommend this excursion to anybody who goes to Majorca.
