"Made in Mallorca"
See Palma from a different perspective by visiting the studios and workshops of the artists and artisans who live and work there. Palma has gotten the attention of the international community and is booming with new talent producing an array of locally designed and handmade articles. I will introduce you to an exceptional artisan who makes unique handcrafted concert classical and flamenco guitars. Mallorca has a 500 year history in guitarmaking! A fashion designer who creates exquisite handpainted silk clothing. Experience "Slow Design" in the form of sustainable clothing, shoes, handbags, headwear. From bikinis to cashmere knits. Talk with a contemporary ceramicist, a sculptor or a classical portrait artist in their studios. Visit shops that have been in business for over 100 years. Touch and, in some cases, taste, their products. An ideal tour to see contemporary Palma and maybe find that once in a lifetime gift "Made in Mallorca". Great tour for those interested in the craft and artistic process.
In Palma we will take a walking route to visit some of the city's creative artists and artisans. The route can be designed to suit your interests. The visit includes stops at some of Palma's traditional shops and pastry shops which are over 100 years old.
Don't worry, there will be a stop for refreshments, a glass of wine, tapas or whatever you like.

Gina is one great guide. She met us at the cruise terminal as agreed. It was a joy listening to her about the island that she loved. She took us to an olive processing plant, an artist studio and places in between. Great lunch and shopping as requested.
