Private tour and wine tasting with lunch in the Tramuntana Mountains
A popular tour showing what I love about Mallorca. We will begin with a short visit to Palma before setting off for the Tramuntana Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage site, on a drive that is a favorite with visitors and locals alike. In a village perched over the Mediterranean, we will see the most stunning views of the rugged coastline from an ancient defense tower. At a family run winery we will enjoy winetasting with a lunch of local products. The wine is impossible to try anywhere else since the production is very limited. The American poet Robert Creeley lived here in the 1950's. Associated with Black Mountain movement, he was a great friend of Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and Jackson Pollock.
in the village of Deya, a magnet for writers and artists to this day, we'll visit an artist's studio and an optional visit to the house of one of Britain's most important 20th century poets, Robert Graves.
This tour can be done without winetasting and/or lunch included. Just ask!
We begin with a short walking tour of the center of Palma. We leave Palma behind and advance towards the Tramuntana Mountains high above the coast (45 min). Here we will be greeted by members of a family run bodega where we will sample the wines of the region while we admire the landscape and terraces which were created by the Arabs, used for agriculture and which remain the principle physical feature of the zone (45 min). By car we will continue north through the mountains to the village of Deya which has long been a haven for artists and writers(30 min). We will tour the village, visit an artist and enjoy an optional visit to the House of Robert Graves (3 hrs). Return to Palma.

Simply put, Gina V is a rock star guide and our experience in Palma de Mallorca was a major highlight of our Holiday. Gina is a real pro! She helped me determine our preferences during the email communications before we arrived and the actual tour fully exceeded our expectations. We knew nothing about Palma de Mallorca prior to our arrival and afterwards, we felt like locals! Gina's courteousness, conscientiousness, knowledge and overall approach is second to none!
