What travellers said about this tour

5/5
A superb tour! With Albert's expert guidance we sampled local food, wines and beers we'd never have discovered for ourselves, and as we made our way through the streets of Palma, Albert revealed the secrets and stories of Mallorca's rich history. Four of us took the tour and two of us are London Blue Badge guides, so we know good guiding when we see it, and Albert was excellent. Thank you Albert for enriching our Mallorcan experience!

What to know

» The length of the tour is 4 hours.

» Up to 10 participants.

» This is a walking tour.

» This is a private, gastronomic – historical tour.

» It is a family and weelchair friendly tour.

Meeting point

» Either your hotel, as long as it is located in Palma’s Old Quarter, or Parc de la Mar if you come by cruise ship.

You need to take the shuttle bus from the cruise ship to the city center. There are several bus companies that offer the shuttle service; you will find them inmediately as you debark. The buses that offer this service have a board on the windshield that says “shuttle” alongside the name of your cruiseship. The shuttle bus leaves you next to a breakwater called Escollera. Once you get off the bus, you walk towards the Cathedral (the Cathedral is really huge and it will be in front of you as you get off the shuttle, so there is no way you miss it). Then, you cross the motorway by the pedestrian light and… this is it! The esplanade with an artificial lake you will see before you is Parc de la Mar. You will see your tour guide holding either a tablet or a clipboard with your name on it.
