Activity Overview
The tour starts with everyone converging at Plaza Espana. We’ll then proceed to a local market in the city that’s actually 60 years old. Here, we’ll shop for ingredients to use when making some classic Mediterranean paella. Of course, the market is nice for a unique shopping experience; probably stroll around and even take pictures.

Once done, we’ll take a bus to Sierra Tramuntana mountains; one of the scenic spots in the city. Here, you’ll meet Ramon- he’ll host you all through the learning process. Depending on the weather, you’ll either cook in his kitchen or his yard. Ramon will take you through the whole cooking process; you’ll learn the history and secrets behind the local cuisine! Interestingly, you’ll even have an opportunity of taking some snacks, local tapas and pair with beer or soft drink. Well, the aroma of the paella will definitely tell it all!

The best part will be to take the sumptuous paella we’ve prepared for lunch. Some local Mallorca wine will perfectly do. Later, some homemade dessert with coffee will ensure you’ve had a wonderful lunch. If you thought that’s all, you’re wrong. How about finishing the Mallorca way; a glass of Heirbas? You’ll love the whole experience! Later, you’ll take a bus, stroll around the city before ending the tour.

The Mallorca’s tapas culture began during the 2008 financial crisis in Spain, La Crisis. Bars were not making enough sales on weekdays. So to increase sales, the local bar owners came ... moreup with the "Ruta Martiana" concept. It was all about reasonable prices and every Tuesday evening one drink ordered was accompanied with tapas. The tapas was made of a slice of bread with vegetables, fish, or meat toppings. The Ruta Martiana idea filled up the empty bars bringing old and new friends together as others sat on the lovely walkways and checking out different bars. It is a cherished Spanish ceremonial dinner that has been extended to the present day. It is a must try when visiting Mallorca.
On this Mallorca tapas tour, we will stroll the streets of Palma to sample the best tapas bars. Each bar has a custom-made tapas accompanied with either a glass of local wine, soft drink or a cold beer. As we continue with the tour, you can also try the biggest tortilla in Mallorca, some authentic Spanish jamón, fresh fish pinchos, or some grilled rib lambs.
If you are spoilt for choice, kindly ask your guide to advice on the most delicious delicacy.
