“So fun. Got to try some food and scruffy looking places that we wouldn't have been brave enough to try on our own. The food was delicious!”

“Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Saw parts of Mexico I would not have experienced on other tours. Had great fun with the group on the tour even though it was the first time we had met and we came from different countries.”

“The "KL Food Experience" was one of the highlights of our trip to Kuala Lumpur. Not only did we get to sample some of the best foods in KL, but it helped us to get out bearings around some of most KL's diverse neighbourhoods. The food was incredibly varied, tasty and filling. We were stuffed after the noodles! Our guide Charles was also fantastic - extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. When asked where we could find the best Roti canai or Teh tarik, he was able to recommend places near our hotel. I highly recommend this tour, and will definitely be booking more tours through Urban Adventures in the future.”
ITINERARY

Locals in Mallorca love to gather with friends around a table and share some homemade Hierbas (a liquor made from anise and other local herbs). That’s why we’re inviting you to come make your own bottle of Hierbas, just like a local! 

Your private Mallorca tour will begin at the Palma bus station, and from there we’ll all head to your guide’s home village of Esporles, a lovely community in the Serra Tramuntana mountains (a UNESCO World Heritage site). 

Once we’re in town, we’ll walk the hills and collect the herbs we’ll need to make our Hierbas liquor. You’ll get to learn about local plant life while taking in the spectacular natural landscape. Some plants are easier to find at home than on the hill though, so we'll also visit our own garden and forage for rosemary, chamomile and maybe one or two other herbs – there’s no better way to get a taste for local life than exploring a local’s garden!

Once we’ve gathered all the herbs, we’ll gather ourselves on your guide’s patio and start to prepare our bottles. You’ll get to choose the herbs you prefer to put in your own personal concoction. 

After all that Hierbas brewing, we’ll take a break and indulge in a merienda — a light snack typical of Mallorca. We'll nibble and have time to chat and share stories as we watch a Spanish sunset.

Your Hierbas will take three months to ferment, so it won’t be ready to drink just yet. But don’t worry, you’ll get to take your bottle home with you. Serve it to some friends back home and savour the experience, just like a Mallorca local. 

(Note that if you’re travelling by air and with only carry-on luggage, you can get a smaller-sized bottle of Hierbas to take back with you.)

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
