On this full day excursion, we will take you to visit places that are not very well-known or visited by tourists. These are the HIDDEN CORNERS of Mallorca: places that we, at NoFrills Excursions, know thanks to our experience.
This is an ideal excursion for those clients that already know Mallorca well and would like to take part in a new and different excursion. It is also a great opportunity for those who would simply like to get off the beaten track a little and see the most authentic and traditional side of the island.
We will start with a visit to Muro, a town that is just a few kilometres away from the busy tourist resort of Playa de Muro but which feels like a million miles away due to its sleepy nature and traditional culture. Our guide will give us plenty of information about Muro's traditions and customs and we will then have some free time to explore for ourselves.
Next we will visit the beautiful town of Arta, where we will give you time to wander around or enjoy the local weekly market. Arta is a stunning town with delightful shops and cafes lining its main street which is crowned by the Sant Salvador Monastery from where there are amazing views of the surrounding countryside and towns. we will stay for around two hours in Arta so that you have time to visit the town and the market and to stop in one of the many pleasant street cafes or restaurant for something to eat, as we will be here at around lunch time.
Later on we will visit Els Calderers, a traditional manor house in the Mallorcan countryside, which has been restored to its former glory so that visitors can see how a real working Mallorcan ‘possessió’ functioned in the olden days.
Our last stop is at the aloe vera farm with a guided visit and the chance to test some of their products.
We are the only tour operator on the island which has created a tour like this. This is, without a doubt, a great chance to discover the real Mallorca.
The excursion starts at 09:00 and ends at around 17:00.

Although the day was interesting I was disappointed to spend so much time on the coach and so little time at the destinations. Only an hour at the market, which does not really give you time to browse, enjoy a leisurely coffee, find a loo etc without constantly looking at your watch. The market itself was brilliant though. Less than an hour at the Manor House. Lunch was substantial and the wine free flowing. The aloe vera stop was very short but for me was not really of interest. I have liked to have been shown around but instead just got a talk on the merits of aloe Vera in the shop. All in all I reckon we spent at least 4 1/2 hours on the bus, at least 2 of which was doing all the pick ups/drop offs. Luckily it was a cheap day out so with lunch included it was value for money.
Have bee n on this tour three times now and enjoyed all three. The guide Janine was very knowledgable and the trip is well worth the money. We had a lovely rustic lunch with wine included and a trip to Calderers always a pleasure to see this magnificent manor house and how well it has been preserved. Met some lovely people and really enjoyed the day.
Great day out with the informative Jeannine & our very careful & skilful driver Sebastia. We really enjoyed the visit to Arta & The Els Calderers.
Versteckt Ecken von Mallorca war die zweite Reise, die ich auf meinem ersten Mal auf Mallorca gebucht. Ich buchte, während noch in Großbritannien und Toni war sehr hilfreich auf der e-Mail Beantwortung meiner dummen Fragen. Obwohl ich alleine unterwegs war, fühlte ich mich nie allein. Die Reise begann auf einem lokalen Markt mit lokalen Handwerks Ständen und lokalen Produkten. Nächster Halt war ein schönes Herrenhaus, das sehr interessant war. Ein mallorquinisches Mittagessen folgte mit so viel Alkohol, wie Sie wollten und dann endete die Reise mit einem Besuch in einem Aloe Vera Bauernhof. Vielen Dank, dass Sie keine Rüschen für einen tollen Tag.
Hidden Corners of Mallorca was the second trip I booked on my first time in Mallorca. I booked whilst still in the UK and Toni was very helpful on the email answering my silly questions. Although I was travelling on my own I never felt alone. The trip started at a local market with local craft stalls and local produce. Next stop was a a lovely Manor House which was very interesting. A Mallorcan lunch followed with as much alcohol as you wanted and then the trip ended with a visit to an aloe Vera farm. Thank you No Frills for a great day.
Absolutely excellent value for money For £27 each. We saw some lovely places. Had an excellent lunch ( lots of alcohol). The Aloe Vera Farm was wonderful. Also met some lovely people. Jeannine was very friendly, helpful and informative. Would really recommend.
We often travel to Puerto Pollensa and usually book a trip with cheap frills The Hidden Majorca one this time was really great. Firstly Jeannine the guide was excellent and really knowledgable.We were taken to a tiny village market and given lots of free time. We then visited Els Calderers,which is an old mansion house which dates from around 1750. Every part of this is open and is really great,the manor was totally self sufficient and the winery,granary and even the working farm is still outside. entrance fee is included in trip cost. We were then taken to a Spanish sausage making factory where we had a traditional Majorcan buffet lunch and copious bottles of as much as you could drink wine,wonderful (also included in trip price of 31 euros!!!) Finally we were taken to an Aloe Vera farm which we have to say was so interesting and not like the usual leather/olive/pearl places that excursions for some reason take you to!! So really a fantastic day out and really excellent value for money Highly recommend
Our 3rd time in Puerto Pollensa and having been on the Rural Mallorca thought we would try the new Hidden Corners. Our guide for the day on 9/6/15 was Jeannie she was very friendly and did and excellent job as she was translating in English and German. The vineyard was great the little village was beautiful and such a peaceful walk and lovely gardens. Lunch was so much fun plenty of lovely food and drink and met a great couple from Bognor could have stayed there all afternoon!! another great trip. Thanks Jeannie and the team. Visited June 2015
We took this excursion on the 16th June and , unfortunately the weather was appalling. We had an excellent lunch included and our guide, Jeannine, was excellent and did her very best to make sure that we got as much out of the trip as we could. Our disappointment was that , having taken other excursions with NoFrills and finding them top rate, the itinerary was a little lacking. I am sure that visiting the Old Town in Alcudia for the market and a brewery tour is not exactly "hidden". We did visit Victoria mountain, which was lovely, but we felt a little short-changed after that. Visited June 2015
After receiving details from Mae at the No Frills office in Puerto Pollensa we decided to experience their new Hidden Corners tour and at only €30.00pp (including a bbq lunch) it proved to be excellent value and thoroughly enjoyable, and as the itinery changes every week, you can do it more than once if staying for a fortnight. Our guide Jeannine and driver Xisco were excellent, but the highlight was the beautiful church in Pina - the ceiling is a masterpiece! And on the way back to the airport we were telling our taxi driver about it and she had no idea were Pina was, so it truly is a hidden tour. Can't wait to do another one or two next year!!
