Great tour guide, interesting places to see and good discussion by guide
Reviewer: Joan Valdes
The guide was excellent. The tour was an hour too long as we did not need an hour of free time in Soller

Our guide was has a graduate degree in Majorca history and I made it a point to stay very close to him so I could hear every word. He spoke a lot about the islands history and how important it was to Mediterranean commerce in the late first millenium. He also discussed the transformation of Majorca during the 1960s into a tourist destination and the feelings of the locals about said transformation (some positives and some negatives) Valldemosa and Soller are both beautiful villages and worth visiting. I'd love to come back.

This was a beautiful tour of the highlights of Mallorca.Romantic, quaint villages with a rich history, cobblestone streets, deep blue waves and stunning rocky shores. I would love to come back and spend a week on this island. Our guide made it a fun afternoon.
Well informed guides but perhaps could have been a bit more informative. Excellent sites overall. Beautiful towns!
Our guide Albert was just great. He was very knowledgeable and provided us with good overviews and fun facts of the places that we visited. Having a small group with a mini-van also made the travelling between places very efficient and we could get to the places before the large groups arrived.

Our tour guide Michael, was excellent! He made our tour most enjoyable the entire time, from the time we got in the van to arriving back at the ship. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in pointing out sights along the way. We had free time to walk around and stop for coffee and souvenirs. Had the delicious famous orange ice cream Michael recommended. Valldemosa and Soller both beautiful towns to visit. I hight recommend this tour.

What made this tour great was the perfect combination of a very knowledgeable tour guide Albert, very picturesque island of Mallorca, small group size and half day duration of the tour in a comfortable mini-van. The town of Valldemosa was so beautiful and old. We had some free time to wonder around it and stop for coffee and souvenirs. The valley of Soller and the Puerto de Soller were spectacular. There were hardly any other tourists in the area when we were there, which made this tour even more enjoyable. Highly recommend this tour!

Reviewer: Nancy Gard
Knowledgeable guide who gave a good narration of sights along the way as we rode on the bus and a nice walking tour as well. Probably best excursion we went on
Reviewer: Jeff Roberts
This was the best excursion of our cruise. Our guide was great, it was a small group, and the 2 locations were absolutely gorgeous.
What a beautiful island! Our tour was exceptional and the guide was engaging and knowledgeable. Without the tour we wouldn't have experienced the beauty of these two towns.
Reviewer: Debby Olson
This was an excellent, all day tour of the island. We completely enjoyed our resident guide and how well this tour/excursion allowed us to experience Valldemosa and Soller. We highly recommend this tour - especially to 1st time visitors to this island.
Reviewer: Eleanor White
The vistas and beautiful small, unique villages visited were absolutely astounding. A wonderful tour away from the big city and expertly led by a young, knowledgeable guide. Much better than just visiting the city of Palma.
Boat got in at a different port and had to unexpectedly rush for a taxi to get to meeting spot. Once tour was underway it was pleasant. Nice tour guide.

Would try it again, hoping for better weather
this is level 3 . I am 69 years old . is little big difficult for me to walk. also the meeting point almost one mile away.
We had a miss communication regarding where to meet for the tour. We were told to take a taxi to a specific place. This was incorrect. We finally met with our tour guide, Mike, and had the best time ever. He was great. The company reimbursed me for the taxi fare with in 2 weeks of being notified of the problem. Awesome
Very nice excursion with our guide Mike. We arrived in Valdemossa early enough before the big crowds and could really enjoy the town and learn as much as possible about it. The history and beauty was impressive. The town of Mallorca was filled with a lot of activity and we a little time for shopping but the primary objective of the day was to see and learn as much as possible. Very good excursion.
Had a pleasant British gentleman, Pete, as our tour guide. He was knowledgeable and provided a lot of good information. Beautiful views. Would love to go back there again to explore even further. (The potato cakes were great!)
This was the best of our 4 tours during our recent week long cruise. Our guide Michael was great. Majorrca was beautiful, I would love to go back for severl days sometime in the future.
Pedro our guide made us feel like we living in the traditions of this quaint village. He loved his job and his knowledge of the area showed! Highly recommend this beautiful tour!

This excursion was one of our favorites during our recent cruise. I chose this excursion from Shore Excursions Group because the excursions offered by our ship didn't interest me. We had a small group (15?) that was perfect for the two towns we visited of Valldemosa and Soller. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the areas and gave us great insight without constantly talking and blowing us over with details. Valldemosa had the flavor of Venice without the water. Beautiful, slightly hilly little town with a lot of character. Definitely NOT for people in walkers or wheelchairs. Then on to Soller which has an inland town and a few miles West, a port area - Puerto Soller. What an amazingly beautiful port. Small but so picturesque!

This excursion to Palma was one of the best excursions my husband and I experienced on our 7 day Mediterranean cruise. What a beautiful island! Our tour guide, Juan, was absolutely fantastic! He made our experience truly unforgettable. He knew so much about the areas we visited and loved showing us his island. Soller and Valldemosa were so gorgeous! We loved everything we saw and experienced. I would take this excursion again in a heart beat.
It was a very clean & comfortable bus. Guide was great, knew all about Mallorca. Dropped us off in Soller for a great street fair. Offered to drop us off in downtown and arranged for those dropped off to be picked up later by another tour bus and returned to the Carnival Sunshine!

Had a separate guide (Pete) & driver. Driver could focus on traffic while guide informed us. Pete was very entertaining. Pete's recommendation for dining & tasting were very good ones!
The beauty of this island was brought to life by our guide. I cried listening to Chopin as I looked at the wonder of this simple venue and loved the markets and warmth of the area. Thanks to Shore Excursions, we will return to spend more time here.
