What to do in Barcelona: The best attractions, activities and experiences for the perfect holiday.


As an experts in Barcelona Tours, tourists frequently ask us what the best things are to do in Barcelona. Whether that be museums and art galleries, tours, activities and excursions or simply restaurants and bars, WE Barcelona have carefully curated a range of experiences to help travellers get the most out of their holidays.

The land is experienced with a walking tour through Barcelona´s gothic quarter and old town and a luxury minibus journey round the city, stopping wherever the group wants, including in Barcelona’s best photo spots. The air with a helicopter flight giving a bird’s eye view of the city; and the sea sailing the Barcelona coast on board our luxury Turkish Schooner. Of course, beyond what there is to see and do, one of the top things to Barcelona is to experience what there is to eat! To allow tourists and travellers to enjoy the best of this, WE Barcelona have created a foodie’s paradise food tour taking in the famous La Boqueria market, three delicious tapas and a tasting of ham and local wines. For those looking for something even yet more specialised, our gourmet tapas tour offers the opportunity to taste the very very best of local and Iberian cuisine – premium cuts of Jamon; catalan tapas served alongside cava; and freshly caught fish specially matched with the finest wines. If you want to combine a different experience representing the Basque Country from the North of Spain, join our Flamenco and Pintxos tour where you will get to enjoy a different type evening that will take you from the southern flavours of a flamenco show in a Catalan 17th century palace to the northern tastes of these small bites as part of a delicious foodie experience. Finally, many tourists want to see what there is to do outside of Barcelona – something that WE Barcelona cater for with a range of activities from our Penedes and Alella wine tours and tastings; to a tour to the Montserrat Monastery; countryside hikes and horse-riding; and visits to the Costa Brava, Girona, Figueres and the Dali Museum. Our private experiences can be tailored specifically to your needs and interests, and can take in anything from Catalan history to Barcelona’s status as a foodie paradise. We take each guest’s requirements into account, from couple and families, to friends and university groups, to corporate events.
