The Basics

The Caves of Drach are one of the most popular attractions on the island, and many visitors see them as part of a small-group tour or private day trip from Mallorca that includes transportation. Individually purchased entrance tickets include a specific time of visit. All tickets include a live classical music concert and a short boat ride on Lake Martel, which is about 558 feet (170 meters) long. When booking with a tour, it’s possible to combine your visit to the caves with a tour of the Majorica Pearl Factory in the nearby city of Manacor and explore the fishing village of Porto Cristo.

Express Tour to Drach Caves and Portocristo
Drach Caves are amazing! You must see it. The pearl factory is a wast of time. We did not stop at Portocristo (unless the Pearl Factory is in Portocristo). I would recommend this tour.

Mallorca Day Trip to Majorica Pearl Shop and Caves of Drach
Since the beginning of the trip, the tour guide was lovely. He surprised everyone by talking in 6 languages and the biggest surprise was when we found realised we come from the same country. He made the trip enjoyable and full of interesting information. Many thanks to Florin for making me feel like a VIP.

Mallorca Day Trip to Majorica Pearl Shop and Caves of Drach
Really wonderful, the caves are amazing and the timings are perfect the opera inside the cave is an amazing experience. the pearl factory was also not that bad as people write in the reviews it's quite informative and the products they have are good too, if you really select, i am sure you will be able to find one which suits you to keep as a souvenir.

Private Tour: Mallorca Caves of Drach and Majorica Pearl Factory
This was one of our kids favorite tours. We were coming to the end of our trip and needed something besides 'looking at cathedrals'. We got to see the town and had fun while doing it! I would recommend taking your own pics as well as those they provide for you. As a note we also took the little train car ride to the Basilica to overlook the city and coast. This was our scooter tour guides suggestion too.

Michael, our guide, was prompt, friendly, and informative. The cave experience was better than most I've seen in the U.S. One of our trip's highlights!

Mallorca Day Trip to Majorica Pearl Shop and Caves of Drach
Guide was great but would have loved to forgo the factory to spend more time at the caves. Caves were crowded so be prepared for that. The short classical concert was neat.

Caves of Drach Half-Day Tour with Boat Trip and Music Concert
The caves are great and definitely worth seeing but the tour company needs to work on their schedule and staff. We made two supplemental stops before getting to the caves which only left us an hour to do the walk-through concert and boat ride at the end. Our tour guide was extremely rude and said we were making everyone late because we came out right when he said we were meeting. If we hadn't made the last stop at the Port for 20 minutes of nothing we would have had more time to enjoy the actual attraction. Definitely a detraction but the cave itself is amazing.

Mallorca Day Trip to Majorica Pearl Shop and Caves of Drach
The bus picked us up much farther away than all the other tour buses, but once we were on the bus the ride to the caves was great, the tour guide was friendly and the caves were really incredible. You probably won’t have time for the boat ride due to crowds and the time to return to the bus. I wish they skipped the pearl shop and we had more time to explore the caves.
