Tour Details

Private Discover Palma and Cathedral

Palma is the capital and largest city on Mallorca just off the coast of Spain. This fascinating little island in the Balearic Islands has been highly fought over and colonized throughout the decades by the Romans, the Byzantine Empire and the Moors. Spend a half day on a special guided walk, where you will visit the town square and historical area while learning about the city's rich history from its storied pirate days to the present. Along the way your private guide will explain what you are seeing and put everything in proper context.

Step inside Palma Cathedral and gaze up into the 44 meters-tall nave. Built over a Moorish-era mosque, this Gothic style cathedral, commonly known as Le Seu, took almost four centuries to be completed. From there it is a short walk to the stately Almudaina Palace.

This Arabian fort-turned-royal residence is used today by the royal family to hold ceremonies and state receptions. Stroll through narrow streets, charming squares and past hidden gems such as the Arab Baths and learn about Palma's Jewish culture as you walk past the area that was the Jewish Quarter in the 16th century. End your tour with a walk past examples of modernism architecture and discover how art noveau came to the city.

This private tour has built-in flexibility which allows you to make changes to the itinerary or stay longer for photo stops. This is a wonderful opportunity to see the fascinating city of Palma on your own terms.

Outstanding visit!
January 11, 2019
Our tour guide Albert was outstanding. He texted me through WhatsApp his info and told me he would be available with our name on a placard. He has a degree in History and speaks several languages, and is simply fantastic! He took us through many historic sites and gave us a wealth of information about every site. As a local his perspective is unique and insightful. He went back and forth between Spanish and English, and it was a great start to our experience.

Palma tour

We enjoyed our private tour. Our guide was wonderful! It was raining, so he took us in his private vehicle to see the fort at the top of the hill, as we couldn't really do all of the walking tour due to the weather. The cathedral is amazing!!

Tour of Palma
July 30, 2018
Excellent tour. One of the best tours on our seven day cruise. Loved Palma. Our tour guide was friendly and informative. She gave us the tour of Palma but also took us to other quaint sites. She also steered us away from pricey tourist shops and took us to shops where the locals would go. Great Day.

Wonderful Private Walking Tour

Our tour guide Pete met us promptly and showed us so many places in Palma. We were free to shop as much or as little as we wanted, and visit many places in Palma including the Cathedral which was phenomenal. Pete took us to the best little coffee place where we enjoyed ensaimadas, the incredibly tasty local pastry. We thoroughly enjoyed our excursion!
