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

We choose to book a tour with No Frills Excursion to Palma because of all the positive comments on TripAdvisor. I can't fault the organisation, we where picked up exactly on time and greeted by our tour guide Melanie and the driver Josè. They made the journey to Palma very pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. The only let down was the bus was a little dated and a bit dirty. Great experience overall :)
Cathedral was beautiful was well worth a visit beautiful views too.. the weather was glorious and shopping was well worth the journey too ..
No frills excursions offered a very nice package to Palma. Very friendly and helpful staff including our tour guide, a spacious double decker coach which was well air conditioned and clean. Interesting tour around the city with spectacular views before being let loose on the city for us to explore ourselves! Also offered discount rates to the cathedral which we thoroughly enjoyed, a free drink and tapas was included in our package. Overall this was a great experience!
Myself and my boyfriend went on the excursion to Palma. We were picked up on time at a bar near our hotel. Our guide Pete was fantastic and clearly knew a lot about the island, it was extremely interesting to listen to him and he also had a great sense of humour that really made the day. At 18 euros a person I think the trip was great value for money. Recommend visiting Palma cathedral which you can buy tickets for on the coach, for a cheaper price and these tickets also mean you can skip the queue! Would definitely recommend No Frills to anyone.
Went with no frills excursion today to Palma, the coach picked us up at 10:30 outside spar by our hotel it only took around 50 mins to get there we then had over 4 and half hours free time round Palma, our driver was fab and our tour guide was brilliant Lorenzo I think he name was, we learnt so many interesting things will definitely be booking with no frills again, thanks for a great day
We have been to Palma today from Ca n Picafort - overall the trip was well organised and the guide was friendly and approachable. When we were picked up,we were provided with a map of Palma along with suggestions of places to visit once in the city and along the way, the guide gave us interesting facts about Majorca. Once We were dropped off, we had plenty of time to sightsee and shop to our hearts content! The only downside of the trip was the "offer" of free tapas and a drink at a shopping centre. We were given a voucher but when we arrived, the tapas turned out to be fish paella and a small drink (small meaning tiny!). I know it was offered free but to be honest, it wasn't worth wasting your time.
We took the PalmaBus Excursion as a couple last week and felt it was good value for the money. We had Lorenzo as a tour guide. He is local but truly fluent in English and German giving you a choice of languages to communicate in. We booked late online and found we weren't expected on the bus when it arrived but this was quickly and efficiently ironed out. If you buy online you can just show the ticket on your mobile phone and you can buy in Sterling or Euros. Lorenzo took his job seriously and was knowledgeable and effiecient. We especially loved the comfortable, air conditioned bus which picked us up from opposite our hotel on time. We liked the way you could choose where to get off the bus in Palma and we were shown the pick-up point before we got off. And we liked the way that we could get Cathedral tickets for €6 from Lorenzo rather than for €7 on the door. And Lorenzo didn't hard sell his two optional extras: Cathedal tickets and boat trip tickets. Appreciated him looking clean and tidy too. If you like Cathedrals then Palma Cathedral won't disappoint you. Lovely clean city. You'll also be given a detailed map. We gave the El Corte Ingles shopping centre a miss, it's really just like Debenhams, but enjoyed wandering through the city in our 4.5 hours' free time. We ate in a local cafe, with some Mallorcans, very cheaply. We also didn't bother with the drink and Tapas ticket as we preferred more "authentic" establishments. Fantastic photographic opoortunities. We had a few minutes to take photos at a coastal viewpoint; nice enough but not spectucular if you are a seasoned photographer. For €17.50/£13.80 per adult you can't go wrong. Take water with you and wear sensible shoes. Palma was roasting hot so go prepared. There's no toilet on the coach, which was a bit of a pain as the one at our drop off point was out of order.
Just returned from fabulous day trip to Palma. Our guide Pete went over and above what may have been expected. For only €18 we left alcudia at 10 and returned at 6. During our tour Pete shared cultural geographical and historical info. He was lighthearted and caring. Heartily recommend this tour. Your guests from lago park
We thought the day trip to Palma was excellent value and very good if you have never visited the city, which is large. We were given a map marked with relevant areas.to visit and had a coach tour before visiting San Carlos Casrle where there were lovely views of the city and port. We were dropped at El Corte Ingles at about midday and had five hours free time. Discounted tickets were offered to visit the cathedral which is well worth seeing and also for a harbour cruise. We enjoyed our day and would recommend..
This is the second excursion taken with no frills over the last two years. We booked on the Palma bus with Pete and driver Fernando, again we were not disappointed! Lots of local, interesting knowledge and very friendly. Pete was a great guide very funny and informative, even offering to do a tour of Palma when we arrived to give us some insider knowledge. Great value for money again and would definitely recommend.
