“Rural Mallorca”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

We went on the Rural Mallorca excursion on friday 22 June, it was excellent! The coach was on time, our guide,Michael was charming and very informative. I have been visiting this area for many years but he told me things that I haven't heard before.
During the day we visited a couple of villages, a market, a bodiga where we tasted local wines and had a very good barbaque which some of our party helped prepare. At no time were we rushed it was a lovely day.
There was a bit of walking involved and some was up a bit of an incline on uneven ground.
Altogether this was very good value for money and I would use this company again.

“Rural Mallorca”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

What a lovely day we all had. Picked up right on time , we went first to look at a lovely church only from the outside but our guide, Michael, was so informative that it didn't matter. We then visited a 'botega' where we sampled six wines. After staggering back on the coach, we were taken to a lovely market where we bought local produce for the salad to be eaten on an old farm where Juan cooked a wonderful bq. The only downside was the road to the top which was quite steep and very stony. Perhaps there should a warning on their leaflet as to what to wear. It was a very enjoyable day due mostly to our guide Michael who was knowledgeable,funny and friendly.Thoroughly recommend it.

“Fun & Informative”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

Went on the Island Tour day trip with No frills, this is a really enjoyable day out and you get to see a completely different aspect of Mallorca. We started by travelling by coach from Puerto De Pollentia through the Serra de tramuntana mountains to La Calobra, a beautiful little place formerly used by pirates according to our guide Katarina! From La Calobra we went by boat to Puerto de Soller, another lovely resort with a nice harbour and lots of restaurants. After lunch we took a beautiful 90 year old tram to Soller, which is a lovely town in the hills and has some superb buildings; from Soller we boarde a train with vintage wooden carriages which took us to the outskirts of Palma and our coach. A packed day out, full of interesting sights and experiences, our guide Katarina, was very well informed, friendly and fun. Worth every penny if you enjoy seeing and experiencing the variety of things Mallorca has to offer, lunch is not included in the price, everything else is.

dear traveller

thank you for your review on trip advisor. We are happy to read you had a good time on the island tour with our guide Cati / Katalina.
We enjoy when we read our clients consider the excursion "worth every penny" because for us value for money and great services are a must on any of the excursions we arrange.

“Playa Formentor boat trip & Anacona II catamaran trip”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

Wow! Thankyou No Frills for two fantastic trips very much worth the money!

PLAYA FORMENTOR GLASS BOTTOM BOAT TRIP

I had researched before our hols to Puerto Alcudia for good travel companies and saw No Frills as a good choice. First we - my boyfriend and I both 22 - did this trip, reasonable price @ 23euro each. The rep was extremely helpful and we got the boa at the Ciduad Blanca jetty on Alcudia Beach. Worth the money - plenty of room to sit on the top of the boat taking in the fabulous scenery. They did one swim stop on the way, nice touch!

When we got to Formentor beach it really was a WOW moment. they gave us 1hr30 free time @ the beach - we just relaxed on the beach, we saw it enough time. If you wanted to do this and have a sit down meal I doubt you could in the time as it was busy there. I'd recommend this for all ages.

ANACONA II CATAMARAN TRIP

This was an unforgettable experience! 55euro each, we thought it was very much worth the money. Great for adults, maybe not quite so much for children.

There are nets you can sunbathe on at the front of the boat, but if you are desperate to be on these I'd say go straight to the Port in Alucida to get a spot early as they fill up quickly and allowed a max 10 people on each nets (there are two nets). Plus you did have to keep moving for crew to set sails etc. We were very happy however with our spot on the bench looking out towards the front of the catamaran - beautiful! There is a chance for some shad too in the bar area if you don't want to be in the sun all the time.

We had 3 swim stops - one on the way and one on return, with a c.2hour stop for snorkelling, kayaking and lunch. The crew provide snorkels - plenty there and we'd thoroughly recommend! The area you stop is stunningly beautiful, with a tiny little beach to go to if you want kayak over! The snorkels are only the simple ones but do the trick nevertheless. 4 kayaks on the boat enough for 2 people, so you may have to wait your turn but try it, good fun!

Food was really nicely prepared, and a chance for some seconds if very hungry. Plenty of drink choice too which was v. nice. Watermelon slices afterwards was a nice touch too. The crew were friendly and very good.

For anyone wanting a a trustworthy company who provide fantastic trips (the other ones sounded really good too) and friendly service, definitely go with No Frills. Thankyou so much with providing us with two brilliant experiences :)

Dear client

thank you so much. I loved to read that you thank you us for 2 great experiences!!!! This makes us so happy!

I have nothing to add to the review because it explains perfectly both experiences, and im sure it will help travellers to plan their holiday in Port Alcudia.
All I want to say is that the photos you put with the review are great!!! I wish I had day off tmw to go on it!

Regards
