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! Book your tour with Gina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your over-the-top comments! I loved meeting both you and Sherri and sharing with you some of my favorite eateries and sites. You both made the experience extra special for me too. It is always so satisfying when guests show so much interest and enthusiasm when trying new experiences even when eating octopus and drinking beer before 10:00 in the morning! Hope to see you back again soon and send your friends!
We really enjoyed our day with Gina. She was able to adjust to our need as the day went along. our highlight was first the visit of the olive oil manufacture in Soller and then an amazing wine/tapas in the vineyard...just wow for the 4 of us. Thanks again for that magnificent day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Nathalie, for your comments. I think I enjoyed the day as much as you did! Yours was a fun and very positive group. Hope to see you again soon.

We were cruising and this was our first actual Tours by Locals tour. Our tour from Cadiz to Seville had to be cancelled due to rough seas, and the tour company graciously refunded our payment. Gina was an outstanding guide accommodating our every need. We were 4 travelers and had some mobility issues. She made it possible to keep us safe and comfortable. She clearly is well informed and loves her country. Gina comes highly recommended! Thank you, Gina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Phyllis, for your comments. I enjoyed the day every bit as much as you did. It is always gratifying to meet people who truly appreciate the culture of where they are visiting. Safe travels! -Gina

We had a great day with Gina! She showed us an historical Manor House, a private wine tasting, local art, and so much more on this beautiful island. I highly recommend taking Gina's tour if you are going to Mallorca!

We arrived in Mallorca by cruise ship, and Gina was waiting at pie meeting spot on the time we agreed. We arrived before many sites and restaurants were open so Gina gave us a walking tour of the city. She was extremely knowledgeable of the city and its history. We visited the cathedral and castle on the hill which had beautiful for pictures and learning more about this beautiful city. She then brought us to a local restaurant called Aromata for a delicious lunch and local wine. We shopped and returned.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jade, thank you for your comments! I enjoyed meeting you and your family and showing you Palma and Bellver Castle. I do hope you return to Mallorca to spend more time and get to see more of our beautiful island.

Another great tour, thank you Gina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Peter! I really enjoyed the tour and meeting both of you. I trust that THE pearls that Jodi searched for and found will be well received. Hope to see you back on Mallorca soon.

Our tour was the highlight of our trip. At a bodega in Banyalbufar, the views, the wine, and the conversation were wonderful. In Deya, we visited a beautiful sculpture garden, toured the Robert Graves house, and did some shopping in town. On the return, I mentioned that I had not had the chance to experience Palma. On the spot, Gina graciously introduced us to the sights in Palma giving us tips to use for more visits on our own. All in all, it was a delightful day with a flexible, excellent tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Connie, if only we had more visitors like you and Phil interested in art, culture and wine! The day couldn't have been more perfect. Toni Darder of Bodegas Son Vives mentioned that he appreciated all your questions, the sculptor Juan Waelder at La Residencia Sculpture Garden always enjoys giving tours and talking "art" with guests & Joanna, the Deya ceramicist, loves having Americans drop by. So glad you were able to get back to Palma, yes, the cathedral is just amazing! Hope to meet you both again.
