Accompanied by our Bon Appétit Culinary Center Chef, you’ll experience an authentic taste of Mallorca by touring a busy marketplace, sampling varieties of olive oil at a country farm, and savoring lunch at a seaside restaurant.

Meet the Culinary Center Chef in the Bon Appétit Culinary Center for an orientation of today's tour and then board your coach for a brief drive through lovely Palma de Mallorca, whose horizon is dominated by the 14th-century Bellver Castle. Before long, you will arrive at the Olivar Market and follow your guide through the cornucopia of wonderfully fresh fruits and vegetables, Mallorcan-made cheeses, succulent seafood and fresh-cut flowers. Being the city’s main market, it’s always abuzz with locals shopping.

Continuing on, your next stop will be Algaida, a traditional town that lies due east in the hilly countryside. Along the way, you will pass numerous olive groves until reaching Es Treurer, a family-owned farm that grows some of Mallorca’s most extraordinary olives. Its name derives from a word meaning “keeper of the treasure,” a reference to the olives being carefully harvested using specials combs and methods. Following a tour of the groves, you will be treated to a tasting of several different extra-virgin olive oils.

From here, it’s on to Puerto de Soller, a picturesque seaside town on the northwest coast. At El Faro, a restaurant perched above the horseshoe-shaped harbor, you’ll enjoy one of the most spectacular views in town. The menu is just as delightful, particularly the Mediterranean-inspired fish dishes such as the one you will be served. A traditional aperitif, glass of Mallorcan wine and dessert are also included, after which you will return to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 90-minutes of moderate walking and approximately 3 1/2 hours of travel by coach. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The tour sequence may vary. The market is closed on Sundays and local bank holidays.
