What we do

My Favourite Things organises original holiday ideas, activities and accommodation in and out of Barcelona, going beyond the usual circuits to provide you with the opportunity to sneak into places inaccessible to the average tourist.

In Barcelona, our tours focus on what makes the city really tick, going off the beaten track, with a fusion of the old and the new, the cool and the kitsch, history and legend, providing sustenance for both body and soul.

The tours are all created around certain areas neighbourhoods or themes, Whether you’re a foodie, a film  or music fan, a history buff,  an art freak, an architecture addict or simply want to enjoy Barcelona in a more personal way, allow us to take you round in this vibrant city. Every tour includes both juicy anecdotes and historical information and, taking a closer look at the side of Barcelona that is all too often left out of the glossy tourist brochures. And, to make this a truly personal experience, we limit the numbers of each tour to ten
Nonetheless, for larger groups and schools, we offer specially tailored tours and activities in and outside Barcelona.

We also offer a range of other fun activities  –dance and cooking classes, wine tours, cycling tours, Spanish language practice, etc., which, provide a great insight into local culture.

On request, we can also tailor special tours, activities and complete programmes.

Outside the city, the underlying idea is the same: to give you a taste of rural Spain well away from the herd, places that only local know about and which offer sustainable holidays in beautiful surroundings.  We offer a number or great countryhouses, wine and cycling tours and last but not least some workshop holidays  (painting, yoga, cooking and much more!) that allow you to relax and learn at the same time .
