Johannes did a great job! He took his time so that no question was left unanswered. Thanks a lot for this! It was a very small group with which we walked across Palma. Without any stress and at a very comfortable pace. We discovered the small streets and hidden corners on foot. Thank you for the great restaurant tips. Was a lot of fun! :)

A really great city tour! As it should be. Seen all the important sights, had them explained in an entertaining way, received a lot of background information about the country and its people and really got to know Palma. Certainly one of the best city tours of my life. Exciting, cheerful, informative and entertaining.

Petra was so friendly and knowledgeable. Really good. I was a bit concerned at first because I had booked the tour in German, but Petra is in love with the city and shares her passion at every stop.

Very well done and interesting guide background information. Easy to understand thanks to the small group. I would recommend the guide anytime.

Great tour with lots of facts and information, but entertaining. Was great fun.
