We were so impressed by Albert's knowledge of Palma history, and he made the tour really fun and interesting with great anecdotes and stories. He customized the tour for my family's needs, and he was really flexible with where we wanted to go and see (and the slow pace of my dad's walking!). We highly recommend Albert for your next Palma tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Katrina, for taking the time in writing this kind review about me and our tour together! It was a pleasure to meet you and your family and I was more than glad to adapt the tour to everybody's needs. I am very happy to see all of you enjoy the tour so much. I very much enjoyed your company myself and I really wish you visit Mallorca again soon! Thank you for coming and my best wishes to all of you!

We booked Albert for a tour for our family of 4 (including 2 teenage girls) and my mother in law. Our first visit to Mallorca (from Canada) and we all loved the trip. The tour with Albert was a highlight. He was highly recommended by a friend with a high-end travel company. Albert was excellent - very knowledgeable and a lovely guy. Very flexible as to route too. He also booked us in for a great lunch at a local restaurant. Great advance communication (to confirm and weather warnings).

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the rating and this fantastic review, Sarah! I much appreciate your kind words about me and the tour. I really loved to meet your family and I was more than honored to be your host in Palma. Palma is the city I was born and raised and it is always a pleasure to show it to people like you. It was a great pleasure to help you with the restaurant and to customize the tour according to your interests. Thank you for coming and I hope to see you again soon! All the best!

Albert was fantastic. He was friendly and knowledgable. He was raised in Palma and studied history so he was very insightful. Palma De Mallorca was the port on our cruise that we knew the least about but were pleased with our tour. We drove through the main town - then out to the beach (about an hour outside of the town, so be prepared for small, windy roads) to have lunch at a great, authentic restaurant. Very unique experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Lisa, for this fantastic rate and review! I was delighted to show you the city of Palma and to tell you about its history. It was also a pleasure to take you to my favorite restaurant by the sea in the area. It makes me really happy to read the tour fulfilled your expectations. I hope to see you again very soon! Thank you for coming to Mallorca and my best wishes to the whole family!

Our guide Albert was very good at responding to our request for tour and he is an excellent tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable of Mallorcan and European history. As a native of the island he could answer all our questions about Palma, Mallorca and the culture. He receives our highest recommendation.

We were a party of 14 ladies, some of us had visited Palma previously, but not all. Albert was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a fascinating insight into the history of the city. He was also very considerate and made allowances for some of our party who could not walk so well for the whole of the 3 hour tour. A very enjoyable experience. Val Scott

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this wonderful review, Valerie! It makes me really happy to see the whole party enjoyed the visit so much. It was a pleasure to share the history of Palma with you and to take you to some of the most hidden places in the city. It was really a lovely and enjoyable experience for me too and I hope to see you again in Mallorca. There is a lot more to do and see! All the best.

Albert was super patient with our 2d grader who was, unfortunately, not in the mood to go on a walking tour that day. Albert let us move at our own pace, gave us lots of opportunity to rest, but also provided a thorough and insightful tour of the city. We enjoyed our visit and felt like he gave us important insights that we wouldn't have captured on our own about how the city operates from the perspective of a local.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this wonderful review, Robert! It was all my pleasure to adapt the tour to your needs and I had a great time touring the city of Palma with your lovely family. I am really glad to see the tour fulfilled your expectations and I hope you come back to Mallorca for more! All the best!

Albert is FULL OF KNOWLEDGE and as importantly, FULL OF PERSONAILTY. Not only will you learn so much of the history of Palma and of the island as well, you will be spending 3 or so hours talking, listening and sharing thoughts with a new friend. Don't miss an opportunity to walk with Albert.

I had very limited time in Palma, and the best decision I made was to do these two tours with Albert. I learned so many interesting things and I felt that I got to know the rich history of this beautiful city very well, discovering many hidden gems and places that I would never have come across if I had not gone on this tour with Albert. He is a truly wonderful guide and I appreciate his knowledge, expertise and care on the tour!

Palma is the city I was born and raised, so it makes me really happy to have been able to show you its secrets and history.
