Exclusive Soller and Valldemosa
Sale Price: $95.00
For guests who only have one day to get a good taste of this delightful island, here is a perfect tour. Accompanied by an official local guide, and traveling in a group of never more than 30 guests, (often less), you will see and learn about Mallorca.
After picking up guests at the cruise port, the tour proceeds through the spectacular Sierra Tramuntana mountain range that was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2011. As your vehicle makes its way through the valleys and passes, you will be rewarded with dramatic views of this rugged area around every turn.
You will drive first to Valldemosa, one of the most beautiful villages of Mallorca situated at just over 1300 feet above sea level. You will see why this location was sought after by writers and artists as a place of inspiration. The composer and pianist Frederic Chopin spent time here and the town now hosts a Chopin Piano Festival each year. Upon arrival, take a stroll past the most interesting and beautiful places of the village. After your walking tour, you will have some free time to relax and to try the famous "coca de patata," a small potato cake that is famous in Valldemosa.
Next, drive along a coastal road with great views of the mountains and the sea. You will be able to view some beautiful places in the distance such as Sa Foradada, Son Marroig, as well as the small village of Deia or Llucalcari.
The drive will take you to the valley of Soller where you will drive through the port area of Puerto de Soller, a small resort area on a bay marked with two lighthouses.
You will then drive from the sea front, up through the Soller Valley where you may see and smell the citrus trees that it is famous for. After that, you will be driven back to the port area, with a small orientation of a few of Palma's sites, before returning to the cruise pier.

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.
