FREE GUIDED TOUR? IT CAN’T BE A QUALITY TOUR

Being suspicious of the news is a common human react, mostly when it’s about offering something without agreeing how it’s gonna cost. That happens with Mallorca Free Tour, the company offers a walking tour through Palma de Mallorca with just a deal: the guide shows all his/her knowledge about the city and at the end of it, visitors pay what they consider appropriate, it means visitors value his/her work.

AND THE GUIDE?

Even though it can be suspicious, the free tour doesn’t mean a denigration to the leading figure of the tourist guides, it’s in fact how visitors are polite, mature and responsible.  The people has the freedom and responsibility to decide how much they want to pay for the service.

A famous quote against the free tour system is “If you offer something for free, you’re saying that it’s cost or value nothing”. For instance, nobody thinks the works of art placed in the British Museum don’t value anything, on the mere fact that the entrance to that museum is free, in that case the visitors give it a tip for its manteniance. The culture has an intangible value.

THE VISITORS KNOW HOW MUCH A GUIDED TOUR THROUGH THE CITY

Somedays before our free walking tour through Palma de Mallorca openning, the (early) balance that we can make infront of that controversy is people who have joined us to do the free walking tour understand and value the guide’s work. For that reason: thank you very much to all of you that makes it possible.
