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.

On arrival in Manacor there will be a 40 minutes visit to the Majorica pearl factory.

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).

Really worth while tour! Had a lovely time, the guides were excellent and really looked after us! We have a young family comprising of a 1 year old and a 3 year old, the guides couldn’t have done more to ensure we enjoyed the trip! The caves were stunning, completely mesmerising for our 3 year old! We only booked, via tripadvisor, 12 hours before the trip was scheduled to depart, communication was excellent, ensuring we got to the bus stop at the correct time. Would highly recommend no frills!
My mum and I have just returned from an excursion to Drach Caves. This company planned the tour to perfection in a very professional fun and friendly way . Our driver was Samuel who was a very patient ,sensible and friendly driver. Our tour guide was Albert who was very professional and took every opportunity to tell us about the sights we were passing and what exactly we had planned for the day. So we all knew what to expect . There are no toilets on the bus and there was a very sweet young man who desperately needed to go to the loo! Albert arranged to make an unplanned stop. This demonstrated how flexible and family friendly this tour company is. Very impressed. Keep up the good work thumbs up
Yesterday we went on the day trip to Caves of Drach. We were picked up on time and met by our lovely guide Juan! Juan was absolutely amazing and made the whole trip for me. Literally did not stop laughing the whole way round. Stopped at some lovely little places for photo ops too. Brilliant itinary, the day passed very quickly. Particularly enjoyed the liqueur tasting in Manacor - so many lovely flavours. Would highly recommend no frills
A "Ronseal" trip - they did exactly what they said they would. Bus timings exact to the minute. Clear return times communicated including risks if late. Great driver (Pedro) and tour guide (Juan). Bus 162 on 02/05/18 Organised via hotel reception - took less than 3 minutes. Collected from reception. €42 each for trip to huge market at Sineu, pearl factory at Manacor, Lunch at Porto Cristo harbour and then the Caves at Drach plus extra tour time around the coast. Ticket to caves was €15.50 alone ! BRILLIANT - well done. Highly recommended
We bought tickets for the Formentor Boat Trip from Puerto Pollensa back in October 2017. We purchased the tickets through Mar from The Puerto Pollensa Office , she was very friendly and helpful and gave us lots of helpful information regarding other excursions. My fiancee has been using No Frills Excursions for just over 12 years and I can say they are great :)
My wife and I only had 1 week holiday in Alcudia and thus had to take the available day to book our "caves" tour, which coincided with the day of our 50th wedding anniversary. The weather was clear and hot (33C outdoors) and thankfully the bus was air conditioned. The guide Albert, and the driver Jose, made for a great day out. Albert produced an amusing commentary as we drove around, giving us a historical insight to the Balearic Islands and Mallorca in particular. We drove through the city of Manacor, dropped off fellow sightseers at the Rafa Nadal Academy, took photos at a beauty spot in Cala .Mendia. The caves visit was great and I took some super photos. The musical experience was enchanting with the stunning underground lake and the lighting effect. We drove on to see the Tower of the Falcons (another photo opportunity) and visited the Majorica pearl factory. Lunch at the Lu Bumba restaurant in Porto Christo was very good, and the manager/owner brought the two of us dessert on the house and announced to everyone that it was our 50th. En route back we collected the others from the Rafa Nadal Academy and stopped at a ceramic-and-liqueur shop to sample the range of liquid products made from bananas to berries. Altogether great value for money and most enjoyable.
A fantastic trip to the caves of Drach, our tour guide juan and driver pep ensured we had an enjoyable and comfortable trip. The caves were magnificent and the sailing musicians really were amazing, we were also treated to a trip to a pearl factory and a stop off for lunch at the lovely Porto Cristo , the return journey was also fun as we stopped off to sample some free shots at a local distillery, wonderful trip great value for money and would highly recommend it.
Excellent trip to The Caves of Drach Albert, the tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly with lots of fun thrown in. Well worth the money for the excursion. We are going to the Pirates show and on the Island Tour with No Frills
Just would like to thank the team that gave us a fantastic day out to the market and then on to Drachs Cave. The tour guide and driver were fantastic. A special thank you to the guide Albert he was the perfect guide giving us a lot of history on spain, very warm and welcoming which made the whole trip memorable. Albert is a perfect asset to your company. A big thank you No Frills orange bus. Will definately recomnend.
We were guided around by the lovely Catalina, who have plenty of interesting insights to the area. The tour felt like great value for money, seeing as we had 5 stops. The caves were beautiful and I've never seen anything like it. Really enjoyed tasting Mallorca's liqueurs as well!
