Perfect walk through the history of Palma, really interesting and a good storyteller in Albert we can only recommend this... Thanks for the lesson.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Rene, for this nice review! It was great to walk Palma's Old Quarter with the two of you and to unveil you its history. You are a kind couple to be with and I have totally enjoyed your company this morning. Your interest for Palma has encouraged me to go deeper into details, so I hope you have a wider perspective on this city's evolution now. I wish to see you again in Mallorca. All the best!
I have used Albert's services for the second time last week. I cannot recommend him enough. He is so knowledgeable of the history of Mallorca and very good at sharing it with us. There was only 4 of us so it was a great experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Audrey, for this fantastic review! It was lovely to have you back in Palma and to share the city's history with you. We had a great time walking the Old Quarter and I hope you come back for a third tour ;) All the best!
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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am speechless again, Ming. Thank you! This a wonderful review and I much appreciate your words. 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. I also learnt a lot from you, since your interest for Palma and its historical background took us from one topic to another. I thoroughly enjoyed your company and I hope you come back to Palma for more! My best wishes to you!

Albert was one of the most interesting and knowledgeable tour guides we have ever had. His passion for the history of Mallorca really showed as he brought the rich history if Mallorca to life for us throughout the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this wonderful review, David! I very much appreciate your words. I was delighted to show you and Dulce the oldest part of the city as we discovered secrets and anecdotes about its history together.

Derek YarrowUnited Kingdom
Six of us from the UK had an excellent 3 hour tour of Palma led by Albert Bouzas in June 2018. His historical knowledge of how Palma had developed over the centuries was immense and added significantly to our enjoyment and understanding of Palma today. If you want somthing more than 'here is a church' and 'now for the catherdral' then Albert is your man.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such a wonderful review, Derek! It was an absolute pleasure to help you getting an insight into the city I was born and raised. I had a great time in your company and I also enjoyed the tour as we were unveiling Palma's secrets together. It was a lovely experience to meet you and I hope you come back to Mallorca for more. All the best!
Steven BargerUnited States
Albert was so enthusiastic! He really knew his city and it showed. We saw so much of Palma - it was a lot of walking but he told us to expect that. He was very attentive to our needs constantly asking us if we could hear and what we wanted to do next. We highly recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this fantastic review, Mr. Barger! I am very happy to read you enjoyed the tour and the city of Palma so much. It was a pleasure to show you the city I was born through its history. Thank you also for the advice about the wireless headset; that will be very useful indeed. It was lovely meeting you and I wish you come back to Mallorca for more. All the best!
Albert is an extraordinary guide, very professional and knowledgable. He was able to accommodate our last minute requests and he even gave us some tips on where we could go during our stay in Palma. Thank you so much for suggesting us to keep walking a little bit longer to get to a better beach, Albert! My friend isn't a history lover and she ended up fascinated by this tour. It was a pleasure walking around this beautiful city with such an amazing guide :).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking the time in writing this kind review, Nuria! It was a pleasure to show you Palma through its history and it makes me really happy to see you enjoyed it so much. I am glad my tips helped you to find a more secluded beach and to know what else to do during your stay in the city. I hope you come back to the island for more! All the best to the two of you!
Thank you, Albert, for the great tour! Everyone really enjoyed it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your rating and review, Mira! It makes me really happy to see everybody enjoyed the tour. It was a wonderful group and they showed a lot of interest in Palma's History as we walked the Old Quarter. It will be a pleasure to meet you again in a near future. All the best for all of you!
Margaret FlanaganUnited States
Our guide, Albert, in Palma was extremely knowledgeable about details of the history of the area. We enjoyed meeting him and were amazed at how commited he was to share all he knew. We would and should have suggested that he add a few interesting and lighter appreciation of the beautiful town. We heard through friends we should have definitely been encouraged to go inside the cathedral and the market place. That would have added to the information of the town and provide a couple pleasant visuals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review, Margaret! It makes me very happy to see you enjoyed the city so much. It was my pleasure to share with you the history of Palma. I hope you come back to Mallorca in a near future so we can visit more places together both in the city and in the countryside. All the best!
Anna PiechaczekUnited Kingdom
The tour with Albert was the undisputed highlight of our stay in Palma! Apart of the fact that Albert knows Palma like the palm of his hand:) and he is truly passionate about its history, he is also a very kind and interesting person, you will enjoy to spend your time with! We fell in love with Palma and we fell in love with Albert, and we will definitely be back!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Anna, thank you for this kind review, really. These beautiful words mean a lot for me and I am very happy you enjoyed the tour and your stay in Palma so much. I have to say the pleasure was all mine and it was a privilege to share the evening with a friendly and fascinating couple like you. Your interest for Palma's history gives me hope in these days and I will be entirely glad to show you more of the city and the island the next time you come back to Mallorca. All the best for you and Nick!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the rating, Pamela! It was a pleasure to show you the city of Palma and I am very happy you enjoyed the tour. All the best!
Monica FreitasUnited States
Albert was OUTSTANDING! We had an amazing tour of the historical parts of Palma and it would NOT have been the same if we had done it on our own! Thank you so much Albert!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Monica and Lucia! It makes me really happy to see you enjoyed the tour so much. It was a pleasure to show you the city where I was born and raised. Besides, I loved to guide you in Portuguese since I do not have many chances to speak the language in the island. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening in your company and I wish we can meet again in the future! All the best!
Albert provided a fascinating and in-depth tour of Palma that made us want to explore the city more. He was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Mallorca, and his use of the vintage map provided useful historical and geographic context for us. The tour was a good pace and covered quite a bit of ground, and we felt we learned a lot about the city and island. Very highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Tim! I much appreciate this nice review! It was great strolling throughout the old town in your company. Despite it was a very hot afternoon in Palma, you were willing to discover more and more secrets of the city all the time. And thank you for mentioning the map too! I have always believed you only get to understand a place if you can trace its evolution in time. This is exactly what I try to do in my tours and it makes me really happy you found it a valuable resource. All the best!
Ray D.United States
Albert was an amazing guide, with a ton of historical knowledge on Mallorca.... the tour was very comprehensive and his english was excellent

James MaloneyUnited States
Albert was a fantastic guide--who seemed to know the answers to our questions before we asked them. He was so knowledgeable, so professional, and so willing to help us come to know a city he loves and knows so well. When we return to Palma, I hope Albert will be available to show us more of the beautiful island of Mallorca!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! Thank you very much for such a kind review, James! I much appreciate you took the time to write it. It was all my pleasure to show you the city of Palma and to help you in other matters along the itinerary. The tour in your company was remarkable and I thoroughly enjoyed it, since we visited several spots out of the beaten path (like the terraces of Santa Eulalia or the convent of Saint Francis). It will be wonderful to meet you again in the future for another tour! All the best for you and Steve!

Our family of eight really enjoyed our walking tour with Albert. He was waiting for us at our designated starting point. He shared so many interesting facts about the island and also let us set the pace. We were extremely pleased with the entire 3 hour tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Glenda! Thank you very much for this kind review! It means a lot to me. It was a pleasure touring Palma's old town with your family. You were all really nice and I am very happy to see you enjoyed the evening so much. The tapas place was a fantastic end for the tour. Did you survive the winery? ;) Thanks a lot for your visit and I hope you come back to Mallorca soon!
Jeannette W.United States
Our tour "Palma Through History" with Albert today was a fantastic tour. Albert explained the history of the area while pointing out the historical and physical changes that have occurred through the centuries. Albert was also very patient with the physical limitations that I have. Thank you so much Albert, we really appreciated your style of guiding us through the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this wonderful review, Mrs. Wehrman! I am really happy you enjoyed the tour so much. I also had a fantastic morning touring the city in your company. Besides, it was a pleasure to adapt the tour to your needs and to visit the old town from a different perspective. My best wishes for the two of you and I hope to see you again!
Craig ReayUnited States
Great tour! Albert was great, would use him again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your rating, Mr. Reay! We had a great time touring the city and I thoroughly enjoyed every single moment in your company! Your family is wonderful and I would really love to see you all again in Mallorca. I wish you all the best and see you next time!
Valerie M.United States
I highly recommend this tour with Albert. He explains the long history of Mallorca along with the charm of the island. He was able to adapt the time to places we would like to see along with being able to allow sufficient time for photos, questions, and for my mother-in-law to rest. This was our favorite tour during the 3 weeks in Europe. His passion for Mallorca shines through!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such a lovely review, Valerie! It was fantastic to meet you and touring Palma with the three of you. I love to show the city I was born to people like yourselves, always willing to discover new places and hidden corners. We had a wonderful morning but, hands down, the best part of the day was your company. I will keep a nice memory of this tour. I wish you all the best and I hope it will not be the las time we meet! ;)

Albert, many thanks again for this great tour - you seem to be an infinite source of great stories and history of Palma, the Baleares and Spain. I really loved your tour and haven't seen the 5 hours pass! I definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn about Palma great history and families from the Arabs in the 1st Century to the WWII.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Lorenzo, for this flattering review and for all the kind things you say about me and this tour. I am really happy to see how much you have enjoyed it and, just as you mentioned, I haven't realized we have been touring the city for 5 hours either! It has been my pleasure to join you throughout the old town this morning. I wish you the best and I hope to see you again soon!

Chris W.United States
Outstanding Guide--Truly An Outstanding Tour. From the moment we met Albert you could feel his energy and excitement to help you understand Palma. He was attentive and flexible. He walked you through the history with such clarity it was like he was painting a verbal picture. His knowledge was impressive and his ability to impart it to others was akin to a teacher who wants you to know as much as he does. This was surely one of the best tours I have ever had and Albert is exceptional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! You leave me speechless, Chris! I am deeply grateful for your kind words and for such a good review. I am happy to know you enjoyed the tour so much and that I got to transmit my energy to the group. I love my job and there is nothing more satisfactory than meeting lovely people like you, interested in our history and our heritage. I had a great time in your company and I will always keep a nice memory of you. I wish you all the best and I hope to see you again!
Bruce GrossmanUnited States
Albert was an excellent guide for Mallorca. He mastered the history, was kind and considerate, I would unconditionally recommend without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your recommendation and for your kind review, Bruce! It was a fantastic day and we managed to see many sites in only one morning! The three of you were really nice and I was delighted guiding you through the island. I wish you have a great journey and I hope we meet again in a near future!
Sondra EttlingerUnited States
5 stars are not enough! Albert is knowledgeable, passionate, and entertaining. We toured with him yesterday afternoon and again this morning and his pacing both days was flawless. His stories helped us to understand the important heritage of the places we visited and, while we have been to Palma several times in the past, these excursions helped us to know and understand this city as never before.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice review and for these kind words, Sondra! I am so happy you have enjoyed these tours so much! It has been a privilege for me to guide you throughout the city for two days. It means a lot to me when you say you understood Palma as never before. As I always say, this is more than a job for me: it is a call. My best wishes to Steve, Sharon, Tom and you. Have a great journey and I hope to see you again in Mallorca!
Sondra EttlingerUnited States
This was the first tour we had with Albert, and we had a second tour with him the next morning. Both were outstanding. See my comments from our August 2nd tour for more detail.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Sondra! I just answered you on your second review ;)
Thomas MehlerUnited States
Albert is an Excellent tour guide and studied history as well. He knows some much about Palma's history throughout the ages that it comes alive in front of you. He was also able to include our two boys with interesting tales. He takes his time and you never feel you are on the clock. All off us enjoyed the tour immensely
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this kind review, Mehler family! I totally enjoyed every minute in your company. The four of you were so nice and you showed so much interest in Palma's history that I forgot we were actually on tour. I felt like I was with some good friends showing them the city I live in. And Marcus and Maximilian are two lovely, smart and polite boys; I am really glad they joined us this morning too. It has been an absolute pleasure to meet you and to be your guide in Palma. I hope we meet again!
We spent the day touring Mallorca with Albert. We thoroughly enjoyed his breath of knowledge of Mallorcan history, and found him to be a delightful person to spend time with. Albert's fluidity in speaking English, and his vast vocabulary were very impressive. We would highly recommend Albert and rate his services today as 5/5. Thanks again Albert!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, Randal! Spending the day with Stephanie and you was a marvelous experience! I couldn't have had a better birthday :) I'm really happy you enjoyed the day so much. Thank you again for your nice review and I hope we meet again!
Albert met us on time and greeted every member of our 27 people personally. We found him to be very enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgeable. He engaged with our group answering any questions without hesitation and his knowledge was surpassing our expectations. We were extremely happy with Albert and would gladly recommend him to any group visiting the island. He was an expert tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Jozef! Thank you so much for these kind lines; once again, the pleasure was all mine. I am really glad all the group enjoyed the tour and you had such a great evening. It was a lovely and unforgettable experience to guide you through Palma. I hope it was not your last time on the island. Greetings to all of you!

Larry GawloskiUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Palma with Albert. We were amazed by his historical knowledge of the area and were able to see just how Palma has evolved over the past 2,000 years to what it is today. The many places we visited on our tour were so memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words, Mr. Gawloski. It was my pleasure to meet you and to guide you throughout the city. You were all really nice and showed a lot of interest in Palma. There cannot be anything more satisfactory for a guide-historian :) I hope we meet again in Mallorca!
