    What an amazing trip, but beware of the hills!

    We loved this trip. So, so, so glad we upgraded to the better bikes! If you don't LOVE BIG HILLS, make sure you get the e-bike (I'm not kidding!) The hotels were nice, but we were extremely disappointed when we realized after finishing one of the days' rides that we had 10k MORE to get to our hotel. We had a little difficulty with the route loading slowly in some areas, so we had to backtrack. Hint 1 - make sure you have international phone service so that you can access google to search where you should be just in case. Hint 2 - make sure you read the printed directions each night to find the next day's starting location because it won't be your hotel.

    Great ride but a few concerns

    First thing of concern is a water bottle, I bought my water bottle but the did not have a holder for the bottle
    I also am not sure of the conditions of the Nikes my back tire was low at the starts and had to be looked at before taking off
    The location for the paella was awful by the time we got there we were told they were closing and anytime we asked for a drink we were informed that we were keeping them open
    Also the paella was awful the chicken was ful with Bones
    The last town port de soller was absolutely gorgeous but the ride out was a concern to us and we opted not to ride
    All in all it was a great trip

    Wonder-full!

    We thoroughly enjoyed every day of our trip. The route was beautiful and took us through the interesting and diverse countryside. The app made navigation easy for our self guided tour and our manual bikes had enough gears to get us up the hills. We would highly recommend this trip.

    Great ride but horrible bikes

    We enjoyed generally the trip locations. Ride instructions were definitely a little fuzzy at times but generally good. The bikes were horrific. They had these heavy, equipment laden bikes that were meant for city riding and not going through the countryside. Not the type of bike meant for doing long hill climbs. Hotels were fine and had good locations, but again instructions to get to them were not great. We had to incur roaming charges to find one because the instructions they gave to find it would have put us the next town over.

      Hi Bill, thanks kindly for the feedback. We appreciate you letting us know about the bikes being heavy and that the instructions could be improved. Most tours we offer are on hybrid touring bikes, and we can certainly understand they are often heavier bikes than most clients have at home. We'll surely pass your feedback onto the tour operator in order to improve their operations. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the ride and locations you visited regardless. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.

    Very enjoyable island loop

    We hadn't been to Majorca before. This was a great way to explore it. The maps were excellent and the bikes were good quality city / touring bikes. The Euro-bike stickers on street signage are really helpful.

    Beautiful place to cycle!

    Majorca is truly a lovely island. Breathtaking coastal views and lovely pastoral scenery inland. Had some great lunches in the local towns. The arrangements were excellent. Good bikes, routes easy to follow, all hotels top-notch.

    Great trip.

    This was our first self guided tour. Almost everything was perfect. There are a couple of suggestions that may make the trip even better. Even though this was a self guided tour there were other people who were doing the tour at the same time. We saw them here and there but did not get to meet them and talk to them until 5th day at the luncheon. It would have been nice to have that lunch earlier so we could meet and interact sooner. We missed out on potential good friendship and interaction with others.
    The WiFi service was poor in most places. I use it regularly to stay in touch with family back home. The last place we stayed gave us individual wifi codes and it worked great.
    We would have loved to stay two nights at the Port de Soller instead of Can Picafort. That was the most beautiful area and we just did not have enough time to explore the area.
    The food was hit and miss but OK overall.
    I would suggest finding small restaurants with daily special menu for lunches. We had our best food on our trip in a little town in a very small restaurant.
    We will definitely do this kind of trips again.

    Loop tour mallorca

    The trip was fantastic, Euro Bike were alway available. The hotels were all 4 star. Every town we stayed in had points of interest. I have done a lot of biking in Europe & would use Euro Bike again. Only thing I would change is the option to be billed in Euros on my visa without a visa sèvice fee, other companies do this.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our trip around Mallorca. I cannot recommend this tour enough!you really get to experience the island as a whole, and see al the different landscapes.it is value for money, i was pleasantly surprised every day and everything exceeded my expectation ( and my expectation was high).All the hotels are located right at the beach, the food was great at all the hotels, the rooms basic and clean we needed nothing more.service where great and location superb!the tour itself is worked out in every detail and the routes are beautiful!the people of mallorca are really friendly and very tolerate of cyclists.we were a group of 8 friends and yes i want to see every country on my bucket list on a bike now!the lunch at fornalutx (spelling?) was absolutely fabulous with the most beautiful little town and view from deck!go ahead and book this epic tour.
