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.

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.

We had a lovely trip to Palma on Friday 25th May. Our guides were Jeanne and our driver was Cisco. Jeanne was very knowledgeable, and the walking tour around Palma was interesting, as was the visit to the spectacular cathedral. Booking was straightforward, as was the pick up and drop off on the day. Many thanks for a lovely day.
Decided to book a trip to Palma after reading leaflet in hotel room, easy to book via hotel, picked up at hotel, very pleasant guide Jeanette who easily conversed in English then German, very informative, nice touch have a panoramic tour, then a visit to military museum to take photos looking over the bay, then back on bus, then to be dropped off for our ‘free time’ in Palma. Map provided with routes that had been highlighted, ie shopping and old town which proved very helpful. Prompt pick up then dropped off back at hotel. Would certainly use this company again when travelling abroad. Fab
Die Busfahrt mit Franzisco war sehr angenehm. Der Bus komfortabel. Die Reiseleiterin Jeannie hat uns viele Informationen über Land und Leute gegeben.
Fantastic value for money at €18.50. The guide Lorenzo was friendly and informative. For an extra €16 I got an hours boat trip and entrance to the cathedral. It is well worth purchasing the ticket in advance as the queue was enormous and I just walked straight in. I would definitely recommend this as it was going to cost lots more for the same thing with my tour operator. Thank you for a fantastic day.
Brilliant! No other way we could describe it, Lorenzo and Fernando were great. Information was on point, no hassle, no agitation. We had a whole day in Palma and the advice given from Lorenzo lead to a great day. Would definitely recommend.
Had a great day out to Palma...our rep Lornzo was very helpful and spoke English...advising us of the best places to see in the city...would definitley use this company again. Thanks.
Simple Palma day sightseeing and 4-5 hours left to wander. Our guide Pete from Yorkshire was helpful,friendly and very informative. We booked other tours via Local TUI rep before finding No Frills and whilst they were OK they were 15% dearer. If you like Cathedrals etc Palma will not disappoint.
Booked a coach trip to Palma from our villa in Alcudia. Great experience from the booking through to the trip itself. Staff in the office were very friendly and helpful , explaining exactly what was included. We booked for 6 adults and were picked up barely 50 metres from our villa. Our guide 'Yorkshire Pete' was superb and a font of knowledge about anything Majorca. A nice wander through the side streets of the capital to the beautiful Cathedral. We also booked a boat trip on the Marco Polo around the bay. The 5 hour trip flew by. I would highly recommend booking a trip through 'No Frills' .
Booked our day trip to Palma through the hotel and thought it was good value for money. Tour of Palma lasting about an hour with our guide Lorenzo (who was fab) giving us plenty of information about where to visit and how to take care of ourselves and our personal belongings. Plenty of time to then explore the city independently and we visited the Hard Rock Cafe and then the cathedral with time to spare to sit in a cafe with an iced cold drink to watch the world go by. Lorenzo also provided us with his mobile number in case we got lost or something happened and we needed his help. Fab company and would highly recommend them to anybody wanting to explore the island more.
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 :)
