This leisure tour highlights the spectacular scenery of Majorca and offers the opportunity to taste local specialties. Leaving the port, you'll embark on a scenic drive with views of landscapes of pine forests and groves of almond and olive trees, beautiful villages and much more. There will be a couple of stops to take in the magnificent views and snap some memorable pictures. Your final destination and highlight is La Granja de Esporles surrounded by beautiful fountains and lush formal gardens. This superb 17th century Majorcan manor was built by a noble family on the site of a 10th century farm belonging to the monks. You'll have time to explore on your own the grounds and interior of the house, now a museum illustrating the home-life of two centuries ago. A highlight is the wine cellar, where you'll sample a local wine and various Majorcan products. Afterward, you'll return to your ship through the village of Esporles.
Note: There is approximately 1 mile of walking on uneven surfaces and rough pathways with 35-40 steps at La Granja.

What a VIEW!!!
This is a very nice and short excursion. The Mallorca coastal view from the tour bus is indeed spectacular. Like the other reviewer mentions, make sure you sit on the left hand side of the tour bus to have the best view during the entire excursion. I sat on the left hand side of the bus and this was one of my favorite excursions during the Epic's 7 day western Meditterenean journey. La Granja was just ok in my opinion. When getting back to the ship, the tour bus can drop you off at Palma and you can walk around and enjoy the beauty of this city. A free NCL shuttle bus can then bring you back on the ship when you're too tired to walk anymore.
