There are many ways to discover a city and not everybody is interested in the same things, so now there are companies who specialise in original routes that are far from the tourist masses at the main city sights.
Mediterranean Incoming Services
A travel agency with a personal service for people who wish to discover Barcelona in a different way. Discovering the city while partaking in a tapas gastronomy route, getting to know the city through the scenes of films that have been shot in its streets, or simply while tasting wine, olive oil or chocolate. These are alternative formulas that will allow you to better digest the history of the city while under the charge of your polyglot tour guide.
Another way to discover Barcelona is from a catamaran out at sea, or from the air on board a helicopter. These options come with the chance to have lunch or stay in exclusive places such as in former stately homes or on ships anchored in the heart of the old port.

Barcelona Guide Bureau
Various circular routes for discovering the city and its surroundings in a personalised way. The Gaudí circuit takes in the Sagrada Familia and Parc Güell, and the Highlights Tour includes the chance to visit these two places plus Pueblo Español on the mountain of Montjuïc. There are also routes that offer glimpses over Barcelona from the highest viewpoints and others that take us to the emblematic mountain of Montserrat and its secular monastery, or even to the Museu Dalí in Figueres. All these have specialist tour guides speaking several languages and can be reserved on the webpage of the company with a credit card. Private tours that have been specially organised and personalised to suit particular needs can be arranged for groups or individuals.
