Santa Ponsa, Mallorca, Spain

Originally from Southern California, I have lived on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca (Majorca) since 1994.

I consider myself a local and enjoy showing visitors what I love about Mallorca as though they were my family or best friend. My specialty is visiting the unknown Mallorca, off the beaten path, away from tourist traps. My tours offer more than the usual mass tourism sites, museums, and monuments. I concentrate on a local experience emphazing the people, the food, and the smaller places to find the hidden treasures for unique experiences and powerful interactions.

As I've travelled through Europe, I've noticed that many visitors, especially first time visitors, don't have the chance to travel outside the capital cities. Come with me to visit Mallorca's specialty wineries, its picturesque markets, beautiful beaches and coves.

Slow down and enjoy my signature tour, "Made in Mallorca". Visit the workshops of the island's artisans and learn the process of how handcrafted concert and flamenco guitars are made from a master luthier. The workshops of contemporary and traditional ceramicists, glassmakers, shoemakers and many more are open to you.

If food and wine is more to your liking, you'll be surprised to know that the island has over 80 wineries! Let's visit a few and pair the wine with a traditional Mallorcan lunch. Visit an olive grove and taste extra virgen olive oil just after being pressed. Meet the locals!

Much has happened on Mallorca and it is reflected in the sites, the food and in the faces of the islanders. This is the Mallorca I would like to show you.

** All tours can be customized and more people can be added to the tours. Add or delete elements as you like. Just message me with your ideas and I will help you to create a memorable visit.

A Recent Review of this guide

Gina gave us a fantastic tour of this charming city. She was informative, entertaining and really made things come alive for us. Although many shops were closed because it was Sunday, it didn't matter, because there is so much to learn about Palma. She loves art, architecture and design and she really communicated this to us. We ended our tour in the Cathedral and her insight really helped us savour the experience.
