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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review and so glad you enjoyed your visit to Palma. I loved meeting you and your husband. Hope you come back sometime!

Gina was a great guide for my wife and I. We had a day in Palma. She had a great understanding of the area and was most accommodating with whatever direction we wanted to go in. Anyone needing a professional guide In Palma would certainly benefit with a connection with Gina.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments! I enjoyed showing you and your wife the Palma I love. And glad you enjoyed the wine! You were both a lot of fun to be with.

Gina did a great job of staying in touch prior to the tour and making sure it was all arranged. We enjoyed a great day seeing several spots on the island we would've certainly missed. Gina was friendly, professional, a good driver and overall it was a great experience. Book with her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. I enjoyed spending a few hours with you.

Heather BuckmasterUnited States
Gina was a wonderful guide and such a delight. We were traveling with my mother who needed additional assistance and Gina was so good with her. We also mentioned we had agriculture backgrounds so she went above and beyond to tailor the tour for us. She provided the perfect combination of history, art and food. We most appreciated the afternoon break at a breathtaking hotel in the mountains. I wish I had discovered Tours by Locals earlier. Thank you, Gina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments! And I loved meeting your family and hearing about your life in Oklahoma!
Monica McgaughUnited States
Absolutely great tour. Our tour guide asked us exactly what we were looking for so she could give us exactly what we wanted to see, without dragging us to very tourist-trap. Her suggestions were in keeping with our preferences. She was so kind, funny, personable and knowledgeable!! I could not have asked for a better guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Monica. I'm glad you were all happy with the scenic choices with seaviews. We couldn't have gotten much higher! Hope to see you again.

Gina's tour was an excellent way to learn about Mallorca. She is very knowledgeable about the history and in a few hours we were able to see many of the sights and learn about the island. I would recommend her for anyone visiting for the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Maury!

Gina gave us a very special day on our cruise stop in Palma. We visited the fabulous local market where our mouth's were watering at the sight of all the fresh fish and produce. Then off to the wonderful, and very old (1711) winery for a superb tasting, lunch on the beach in Soller and then a special treat by visiting Gina's husband at his sculpture studio in the Belmond Hotel where we viewed a curated Miro exhibit . A full day with a terrific guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the 5 stars and comments. Glad you enjoyed the day, Please come back!
Tudor AntoniuUnited States
We have spent a wonderful day in Gina's company. She has created a memorable experience for us in Mallorca tailored per our request towards local artists/artisans. From handmade leather bags to book design and painting we have made some unforgettable memories. To top it off, she arranged a delightful lunch visit to a local winery. A truly one of a kind guide. We highly recommend Gina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. I will always remember the day spent with you, Ana and Julia. I feel as though I have made some good friends. And thank you so much for supporting Mallorca's artists and artisans. I get the feeling that we will meet again. Take care!

Rocky start but all ended well. Gina was very helpful in arranging the snorkeling trip for part of our group. I enjoyed my city tour complete with ice cream and wine.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the 5 *! Wish the pick up had been smoother but all turned out well. Glad that your family had a good time snorkeling at the nearby marine reserve. I'll pass your very positive comments on to the scuba company.
Wendy HeywoodUnited States
Gina was great! She picked us up at the Dock and took us to visit three artisans up in the local villages: a lady who did ceramics, a shop that did textiles, and a glass blowing factory. So interesting! We then ended up in the Village of ValldeMossa which is the most charming village ever. She was patient with us as we kept getting sidetracked with shops and finally just let us roam at our leisure. She was great. Extremely knowledgeable. Fun personality. I would definitely hire her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So glad you and your family enjoyed your personalized tour. I will always remember you as being some great shoppers! So thank you for supporting Mallorca's artisans. Hope to have you back again soon.
William DuganUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the 5 stars! I enjoyed visiting the guitarmaker as much as you did. And the lunch in a town not frequented by tourists was a perfect way to end the tour.
Thanks Gina for the nice tour! We really enjoyed it and what a great city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Please come back soon!
Elizabeth LorellUnited States
We spent several days with friends in Port Adriano. We all had one day to see as much of the city (Palma) and countryside as possible. Gina was perfect! We went on a walking tour in Palma, seeing the historical sites BUT with the stories behind them, to put everything in perspective. We had lunch at a fabulous hotel in the countryside (that we would never have found without Gina) and toured Port Soller. A great day was had by all. Thank you Gina! The memories will last a lifetime!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments. I enjoyed meeting you all and hope you make a return visit very soon.
Ted KadivarUnited States
Gina gave us a walking tour of Palma and then we drove up into the mountains. We had lunch outside on a beach in a bay and enjoyed some fresh fish. It was an enjoyable day with beautiful scenery.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review. Glad you and your family enjoyed a few hours on Mallorca.
Terry CoadOrange, CA, United States
This was our first but won't be our last Tours By Locals experience. Gina was so nice and as big as the island is, gave us an unbelievable tour. She drove us into the mountains where we had incredible views and got to see homes outside the city. The winery she chose was so small and so much fun. The person who did our tastings was charming and the wine was very, very good. We highly recommend Gina, not just for the tour but also for being so nice and such a great driver. 5 stars is not enough!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments. They are SO appreciated. I strive to offer a unique experience for guests visiting our beautiful island. Please come back!
Adele StoneUnited States
Gina V. gave our group an excellent tour of Palma de Mallorca. She is a delightful person and is very knowledgeable about the City, its art, architecture and its history. Gina enriched our brief stay in Palma with her insights and we highly recommend her as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments. I value the interest you took in wanting to know more about our beautiful city. Please come back!
Rick TimmonsUnited States
Our walking tour with Gina to Palma Old Town and wine tasting was one of the very best highlights of our 3 week trip to Italy, Spain and France. Gina took us to a beautiful open market where we purchased cheeses, meats and bread for our wine tasting. Mallorca has some very surprising wines, totally enjoyable, not rushed. Gina was patient with my photography stops and took us to some surprising stops. An amazing tour guide! We stopped in to meet local artisans in their shops, and stopped at a old bakery.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your beautiful comments. I'm glad you both enjoyed your few hours in Palma. Would love to see you again, so please get in touch with me when you return.

Richard SantangeloUnited States
Really a spectacular day that included a private visit to a small family owned winery in Manacor. Also a great opportunity to visit the Rafa Nadal Tennis Academy. Great lunch experience in small, local family owned restaurant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Was a great second day experience with you. Glad you could savor the local food and wine in such an intimate way!
Richard SantangeloUnited States
Our tour guide, Gina, was absolutely fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed her expertise in seeing Palma, as well as Valdemosa and Soller. Were able to see and experience a lot more than we could have possibly done on our own. Lunch at La Residenzia was spectacular.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. I especially enjoyed the visit with you both. It is always a pleasure when the visitors are so appreciative of the local culture. Hope to see you again.
Lisa H.United States
Gina is an excellent guide (and driver!). Touring with her is like being shown around by an old friend. She knows the area well and takes care to choose her route for the best views and most interesting places to visit. She has lots of ideas for things to do and adapts the itinerary to the interests of the group. We appreciated her deep knowledge of island history. This was my second tour with Gina, and our time with her was a highlight of our week in Mallorca.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the comments. I really enjoy what I do but it is easy when a group such as yours shows so much interest in the local culture.
Lisa H.United States
Gina is warm, friendly and extremely knowledgable. Pre-tour communications were excellent, and she tailored the day to the interests of our group of 7. She contacted a knife maker and made sure we met him in the Sineu market. She arranged a delicious lunch and tasting at a winery where we chatted the winemaker. Her connections allowed us to visit workshops and meet artisans we never would have found on our own. In between stops, she shared stories and island history. I recommend her without hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Lisa, for your comments. I enjoyed meeting your family and friends. And a big thank you for supporting our local crafts people.
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. So worthwhile meeting two people who love Spain. Makes all the difference. Please come back.
Marjorie RobertsUnited States
Gina was excellent. She was friendly, knowledgeable, timely, and extremely helpful especially with my 87 year old mother. She planned a great day where we got a good sense of Mallorca's beauty and history and unique sights. I will recommend Gina to anyone coming to Mallorca and will definitely use her if/when I return. It was also enjoyable to chat with another American woman who had moved to as island, as I did around the same time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments. It was a thrill getting your group in and out of today's heavy rain, but it worked! Please stay in touch and hope to meet you again. (From another woman who lives on a rock.)
Janine H.United States
Gina was absolutely amazing! She was on time and full of information! We would never have gone into this beautiful city and seen all the wonderful things we saw without her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments which are very much appreciated. Please come back!
