Very enjoyable way to see Palma. Bus comfortable and clean. Audio interesting. €18 per adult and €9 over 65.
Special note to Tina whom we booked with.
A good way to see the sights
As always with open top bus tours it depends on the weather. Our tripwas on a su ny day but not too hot, the perfect weather!
You get to see the main sights and are able to hop on or off at those you want to explore.

We reached by MSC Cruises, we spent at the old town of Mallorca, all my family members enjoyed the whole Old City tour
We used Hop on Hop off for tours
At 2130 we been back to the port for
Best trip, do the whole loupe and get your bearings, then hop off where you want. Clean and commentary very good.
Nice and relaxing journey
We found it good way to see the main parts of the city surrounding the old town and the Marina. We hopped off at Castell de Believer to visit the castle and enjoy the fab views from the hillside. It also helps to get your bearings overall of Palma.
Nice day out
A lovely way to tour Palma & get round the few big sights Palma has to offer. We jumped off and visited the castle which was a nice walk round. But very expensive for what it is & probably wouldn’t do it next time we come.
Great Way to Get Around but you won't hear much.
This is an easy way to get around town. It was extremely hard to hear the information. The speaking was very fast and we did not get much out of it. The ride was good.
Not much to see
Nothing memorable. The rush for the open top deck became a rush for downstairs after half an hour in the very hot sun.
HOHO in Mallorca
The Hop-On Hop-Off bus was a good way to see a few of Palma de Mallorca's sights. I did find that the route was a little repetitive (back and forth along the same road) and that there could have been more audio about the sights we were seeing. After once around the route we hopped off and returned to our ship.
I'm generally not a fan of HOHO busses
As I say in the title, I am not a fan of Hop On Hop Off bus tours as I think they tend to be expensive, take you around obscure, uninteresting parts of a city just to keep you onboard longer so that you feel you ate getting value for money.
So, why did I take it in Palma, well, we arrived on a cruise ship for a day and my friends wanted to take the bus so I went along with them. I had been to Palma before, many years ago, and had no real interest in anything particular, but I feel that I could have done more under my own steam.
We first got off near the end at Castell de Bellver and this is maybe the most useful part of the trip due to the location of the castle. We then had to go around the loop again to get back to the city but due to the castle closing at 3pm we had to do it first.
I don't like that when the bus stops it is like a cattle market with people trying to herd onto the bus in fear of another one not being along promptly so people who have been waiting in line can get shoved away whilst others feel that they should get on even if they haven't been waiting as long. Then when you get a seat you might be split up from your companions as people want to sit on the outside to get the views and then those who sit on the aisle seats need to stretch across potential strangers in order to plug in the headphones which might not even work very well.
Anyway, other people love these type of buses but the only one which I've enjoyed was in Belfast, ironically.
Incidentally, if you do use one of the HOHO buses, if you keep your ticket then you can potentially get 10% off another one in another city
