Your guide will share cultural stories and you will walk away knowing the good, the bad, and everything in between about Mallorca and Mallorcan culture. Leave with your own Spanish book as a souvenir. This evening, delve into Mallorca’s culture on a small-group foodie adventure; travel through the cobbled back streets of Palma along the Ruta Martiana to taste five different tapas with five accompanying drinks of traditional Spanish wines or ice-cold beers at a variety of bars each with their own quirks and personalities.
