If you're looking for a walking tour with the chance to meet local artists who make the souvenirs you buy, then this is the tour for you! Your tour includes a walk through Palma's craft-making district, where you'll meet local entrepreneurs, visit a pottery and footwear shop, and witness the making of a wicker basket. You'll also get an expert guide, a delightful snack of the famous local sandwich the island is known for and a chance to learn about Mallorca's history, too.
Discover Mallorca's craft-making culture with a stroll through a Jewish neighborhood to visit a pearl shop, your first stop on this exciting shopping tour. Learn about the popularity behind Mallorcan pearls before heading over to see how local artisans weave together wicker products, including traditional wicker baskets. Continue your cultural experience through the narrow roads of Palma's handicraft neighborhoods and stop at a local footwear store.

Next, you'll head to a centuries-old pottery shop and discover its masterpieces, including its pans, oil bottles, paddles, and pots. The ceramics from this pottery shop use earth and material from a family-operated factory in Pòrtol, a small village just outside of Palma. The family has run the factory for five generations, which makes it a unique opportunity to support local entrepreneurs when you buy your souvenirs on your shopping tour.
End your tour with a food experience and dine on delicious Greek-style sandwiches called a llonguet. This sandwich is known for its savory taste and features cheese and sobrasada, a cured pork sausage made with salt and spices like paprika. Don't forget to ask your tour guide about more hidden gems to shop and local eateries to discover on your shopping tour.
