You’ll also enjoy a boat trip on Lake Martel (one of the world’s largest underground lakes), listen to a live classical music concert and watch a spectacular light show! Finish the day with a panoramic sightseeing tour of Porto Cristo and a liqueur tasting in Manacor.

This exciting and comprehensive day trip on Mallorca starts with a drive in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Head inland through the beautiful villages of Santa Margarita and Petra as you make your way toward the town of Manacor. Here, visit the Majorica Pearl Factory to see how its famous man-made pearls are crafted. Note that if you choose the transport option from the northern part of the island, you will visit Perlas de Mallorca factory instead.

Next, discover one of Mallorca’s best natural wonders, a series of caves called the Cavern of the Dragon. The caves, mentioned in Jules Verne’s book Clovis Dartetor, were discovered around the year 1338. In total, they are 1.5 miles (2.4 km) long, but only half of that is accessible – enjoy a one-hour guided tour along the 0.75-mile (1.2-km) route. While you’re in the cave, enjoy a 10-minute live performance of classical music.

At Lake Martel, one of the world’s largest underground lakes that’s hidden within the caves, watch a fascinating light show that imitates the sun rising over the lake, and enjoy a short boat ride. Alternatively, you may continue the Cavern of the Dragon tour on foot and join the rest of the group outside the caves.

When you leave the caves, head to Porto Cristo, a fishing village on the east coast of Mallorca, for a panoramic sightseeing tour. Porto Cristo is located on a sheltered bay with beautiful sandy beaches, coastal caves and shallow water. You’ll have some free time here to take a lunch break (own expense) in the center of town, which offers a wide selection of bars and restaurants, or walk past Porto Cristo's 15th-century watchtower.

Then head back though Manacor, the birthplace of top tennis player Rafael Nadal, to your original departure point.
