    What to Expect
    With your City Sightseeing ticket in hand, head to Stop 12, conveniently located close to the port, and climb aboard a double-decker bus to begin your tour of Palma de Mallorca. Pass stretches of white sand and the impressive architecture of the historical quarter as you learn about the history of the area from commentary on board.

    Cruise past landmarks such as the Cathedral, the Palace of Almudaina, and the Plaza Mayor, hopping off whenever you'd like to explore an attraction further. 

    Hop-off or hop-on as many times as you like within the 24-hour validity period of your ticket, and choose to rejoin the tour at any one of 16 stops. The entire route takes approximately 80 minutes to complete and buses depart every 20 minutes from each stop. 

    Please see the Itinerary section for a list of all of the stops serviced by the route.

    Boat Tour Upgrade

    This option includes your hop-on hop-off bus ticket plus a 1-hour boat ride around Palma Bay with a selection of drinks and snacks served on board. (First tour is at 11am, last tour at 4:30pm, departing from Escalera Real.)

    Bellver Castle Upgrade

    This upgrade option includes your hop-on hop-off bus ticket plus admission to Bellver Castle. Take the bus tour for approximately 1.5 hours, followed by a 45-minute visit to Bellver Castle, a Gothic-style structure near Palma's city center.

    Please note: Allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy because the start point is located within a 10-minute walk of the cruise port, allowing you to ensure your punctual return to the cruise ship.
