Holiday ideas please

My wife and I have just booked our first holiday to Cala Bona - in September. Although we'll only be there a week we would like to make a few short excursions as well as possibly an island tour. I have read that I.Punkt Tours operates in the area. Has anyone used them lately? if so, what were the coaches like and were the excursions expensive? Any ideas would be much appreciated.

We did a trip with them last year that included La Calobra, Soller and the Orange blossom train (bus, boat and train). Excellent coach(and driver - the road to La Calobra was so scary!!) , informative guide and well organised.

Have you seen their website?

www.i-punkttours.com/ipunkt_home_ing.htm

They had an office along the seafront last year but it was not open in April during our visit.

We used local buses to visit other places

Ive done each of the 5 main tours in the past 4 years , all were good days out and worth the money , as an earlier post said visit the web side to get an idea of wich tour you would like to do , here are last years prices wich will be similar this year if not the same .

Tour 1 Grand tour of the island , 62 euros each

Tour 2 Palma with harbour boat trip 38 euros each

Tour 3 The paradise tour 36 euros each

Tour 4 Palma only with 5 hours shopping 29 euros each

Tour 5 Alcudia with market + formentor +Liuc monastry 37 euros

Children 11 and under ..half price

Ive always enjoyed my tours with the grand tour my favorite , coaches are comfotable with an excellent guide ( john ) and always on time , i will be back in September and will definately have a repeat trip again , as an earlier post said buses offer a cheap way of seeing other resorts .
