With this excursion we will give you the opportunity to discover the city of Palma de Mallorca, capital of the Balearic Islands in the most hassle-free and comfortable way. You will be able to make the most out of your day thanks to all the useful information our guide will share with you during the journey. Enjoy a full day of shopping and sightseeing with No Frills Excursions as you get an insight into Mallorca's rich and interesting culture.
On the way to Palma, our guide will give you valuable and interesting information as well as a map of Palma City so that you can plan the day ahead in the most comfortable way, on our air conditioned coach. Our guide will give you the best suggestions for sightseeing and shopping in Palma so that all that's left for you to do is to decide how you want to spend your day and enjoy.
Once we get to Palma, we will stay on the coach and make an interesting sightseeing tour (approx 60 minutes). We will pass the habour, the cruise port and Palma Cathedral, with a 20 minutes stop at the San Carlos Castle from where we can enjoy spectacular views of Palma’s port. (Please note that on Mondays, as the castle is closed, there is no stop there.)
Once we have seen Palma's most important sights, we will drop you off opposite the cathedral, which is a five minute walk from the shopping area and Palma's historical area. From this moment you have more than four and a half hours of free time to explore the old town, visit the cathedral or go shopping. Shopping in Palma is a great experience as you have a wide selection of shops that range from luxurious boutiques to large department stores and well-known retailers.
As you also have time for lunch in the city we suggest that you don't miss out on the opportunity to savour some typical Spanish and Mallorcan food. Therefore we recommend visiting La Lonja, the tapas area in Palma de Mallorca and the old fisherman’s port.
This excursion was voted as the best value for money day out last year by our customers who said to have got their money's worth with an unbeatable service.
We also offer a more complete option to visit Palma, which includes all the above plus a 45 minutes guided walk with a licensed guide, entrance to the cathedral and a 45 minutes guided visit with live comentary in the cathedral:
You can also add to this same Palmabus excursion, a 60 minutes boat trip in the Port of Palma:
There is no better value for money option to go to Palma than this excursion, just see all the things included in the price! Plus you have a guaranteed seat on the bus, unlike the public bus where you may have to queue and could be left behind in Palma making a costly taxi the only option to return to resort.
The excursion starts at about 09:30 and gets back to resort at around 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:
Have been on this excursion before and because we enjoyed it so much thought we would repeat it. We are glad we decided to do this and again had a very enjoyable day. Pete from Yorkshire was our Guide and he was very knowledgeable, amusing and friendly. The times of pick-up were on time, the driver was very good and we thought the whole trip was value for money. Thank you No Frills, keep up the good work.
Went on the trip from Playa Garden Hotel to Palma today with No frills tours it was excellent from start to finish, the guide the driver could not have been any better they are a real credit to your company. Thankyou it could not have been better.
Great value, informative day out with just the right amount of time and a nice tour of the city. Tip: when you get off the bus, go straight to the old town without going to the shops (my wife cost me more than the holiday did).
Had an excellent day out in Palma – great value for money trip. Thanks Lut and No Frills. Would not hesitate to book again.
Excellent day out and our guide Juan really made it worthwhile. He spoke English very well and was full of information and did not present it in a dry or boring way. Would thoroughly recommend this for any first time visitors to Palma.
We had such a good day out and Michael our guide was excellent, gave us all the information we needed to go out and do our own thing round Palma. The Castle and toilet stop was a really good move before we got into the serious stuff of sightseeing and shopping. Managed to buy a Christmas present for the man who has everything at the Courte Englesis too. Will use No Frill again next time we visit Mallorca.
Good day , and as we were staying at Pollensa we travelled through Alcudia on way down and saw quite a bit of that town as well. I don`t do `shopping` so went to the old town, visited the Palace and the old Arab Baths, unfortunately the Museum was closed for restoration, and a couple of other places were shut as the season was over. Our guide, Lisa ? was very nice , and she took us to down to Palma, we had a good map and found it very easy to get back to the pick up point. The harbour area was full of activity as the TUI marathon was being held the next day. This was the last of the 3 excursions I booked and I must say I enjoyed them all.
Not a good day! We were unlucky as the heavens opened as we approached Palma but the tour guide's indecisiveness made things worse. He sensibly decided to postpone the drive around because of the rain and the gridlocked traffic, then changed his mind without giving us the chance to get off the coach first. We then drove for an hour and a half up and down a rainy, windswept promenade before we were finally deposited in Palma three and a half hours after boarding the coach! Some poor souls had been on for an hour longer than that! I fully accept that the weather/traffic was beyond his control, but things could have been handled far better. We went on two other trips, they were great, great company, would certainly recommend and use on any future visit (but NEVER Palma! 24/09/11 Pat McGoverne
Just returned from Pto Pollensa and must comment on our excellent guide Juan on the Palmabus trip. Spoke English (and German) excellently and gave us all the information and handouts we needed for a great day out. Also he had a great sense of humour and was very helpful. Well done Juan and keep up the good work (we were the couple who you refunded a double booking charge made by our apartment rep - thanks for seeking us out )
Wir (Familie 2 Kinder 8 u. 11) haben am 02.09.2011 mit no frills eine Kombitour Palma - Valdemossa unternommen (wurde mit alltours zusammen durchgeführt). Nach der vorherigen Super-Inselrundfahrt mit Dori waren wir von der Tour Palma-Valdem. sehr enttäuscht. Reiseführer Martin und ein polnischer Übersetzer haben in 5 sprachen (spanisch, französisch, englisch, deutsch und polnisch) Informationen gegeben. Wobei spanisch, französisch und polnisch am längsten gesprochen wurde. Bei deutsch und englisch kam irgendwie immer nur eine Kurzfassung (Ich verstehe französisch, deshalb kann ich dies hier behaupten!). Bei der sehr langen polnischen Version hatte man den Eindruck die Polen machen eine ganz andere Tour. Viel zu viele Sprachen an Bord, absolut nervig, wenn man den ganzen Tag mit so vielen Sprachen vollgetextet wird. Man hätte gern auch mal in Ruhe die Aussicht/Landschaft genossen. Dies war übrigens eine verbreitete Meinung der deutschen Touristenim Bus. Kleiner Tipp: Weniger ist mehr! Nicht soviele Nationalitäten in einen Bus packen. Mehr als drei Sprachen ist einfach zu viel!
