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 emphasizing 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 virgin 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

Wow! Gina is a wealth of knowledge about La Palma and offers the most lovely tour. We really enjoyed our time in this beautiful city! Toured the huge local Market with all of the fresh offerings then up and down all of the quaint cobblestone streets, so very nice. Finished with a superb Wine Tasting experience. Thank you Gina for an amazing day! We hope to see you again soon!
