Waste of time
termsofuse-22
, Oct 2019
If you are on a cruise ship- dont do this. With many ships in port, too many people and not enough buses. We wasted large amount of time waiting - and buses were not as frequent as advertised.They were all full and just drove on by. The operator must know this but wont put on extra buses. Many many people at stops were getting refunds by the attendants. We did too. Palma is not that big- taxis are cheep.

Disappointing

We took the Hop On Hop Off bus tour in Palma de Mallorca from the cruise Ship terminal on Sat, 10/12/2019 and the line was super long. But what was most frustrating was that the buses that stopped every 30-45 mins were so full that only a few people were allowed to board each time.

Poorly organized

To start, not enough buses. Needed to wait for third bus due to demand and therefore lost 40 minutes in touring time.waiting for that third bus. Once on the bus, it seemed only half of the plug-in terminals for the audio-guide worked in all the languages...the other half only worked in Spanish regardless of the setting! The boat tour is a boat ride...there is absolutely no information provided on what we are seeing. When we went to view the castle...we discovered that the tour company had failed to print the passes even though we had paid for the castle tour. So...if you are willing to hop around selecting seats with working language options and you don't mind sitting separated from your travel companions...go for the hop-on/hop-off. Don't waste your money on th he boat ride unless that is all you want-just a boat ride!. If you book the castle tour...check your printed ticket after you hand in your voucher to make sure it is printed.

Ticket was supposed to be for bus, boat tour and castle. No castle ticket in conversion as It was not stated on the Viator document. Boat tour was pleasant, but a waste of an hour. Line at cruise port for bus was terrible. Walk about a half mile and get on at stop 13. Busses were crowded and didn't seem to run frequently enough. On one bus several of the ear phone jacks didn't work. Overall a nice bus tour, but improvements can be made. Some staff were extremely helpful. The two I tried to speak with at the cruise port stop were not very helpful.

Not so Great

This tour wasn't so great. We weren't even given any headsets. The island was pretty but we didn't get to enjoy it as much as we would have liked. The cathedral was massive and glorious as we rode by, and that section looked really nice to visit. We wanted to spend some time at a beach which was not communicated clearly by our driver when we asked. He mentioned it would take another hour/or taxi to get to. When we figured it out, all you have to do is get off by the cathedral and then walk for about fifteen minutes to a beach. Not sure why the driver couldn't tell us this. It was a bit disappointing when you only have a certain amount of time from a cruise. Getting back from the beach to the ship in a taxi was 10 euros, so that wasn't too bad. If you have time, get back on the hop on bus to take you back to the ship which we would have done if we things turned out better. We also found out that Cala Mayor beach is beautiful, that is the one you would need a public bus or taxi to get to on your own. Try to make the most of your day so you can enjoy it to the fullest. It is a pretty island!

Complete disaster
robertbA8097BP
, Aug 2019
No explanation of where to get the ticket except the address which turned ou to be a portable street stand hidden in a huge crowd. That address was said to be short walk from end of pier but we docked at different pier 4 km away and finally had to pay 15 EU for taxi. Bus people were surly and unhelpful. Buses left only half full with 40-50 people still in line. Total disaster. More like stealing you money. Don’t do this tour

Best way to see everything

This was the best way to see everything in a short time. Being that we have limited time on shore from our cruise ship, it’s a no brainer to get the tour this way you can see everything.

The driver was racing through the town. The head sets were very hard to hear through. The audio was mostly tourist music. Need to be more accessible to cruise ships. Was expensive to travel to their main location to pick-up our tickets.

The city was beautiful. The only problem was getting from the port to the bus stop. The directions were not clear. There was four (4) other families that had the same challenge.
