Enjoy A New Suite of Travel Services in Barcelona

Apr 4, 2012 | Barcelona Guide

Enjoy Barcelona has today launched a raft of new service packages aimed at providing a “one-stop shop “service to city travellers visiting the northern Spanish city.

In addition to booking self-catering Barcelona apartments in key districts across the city’s most cosmopolitan neighborhoods, guests can now also arrange bookings for activities ranging from city tours, dance classes, family services or restaurant bookings, and for services such as scooter rentals and beauty treatments.

Owner and manager of the Barcelona apartments business, Mr Ralph Taal, explained the new service component reflects the changing demands of current city travellers: “We have found that, increasingly, city visitors are looking to enjoy quality experiences when they travel, not just tick off visits to key landmarks and art galleries. There is also a greater demand in the travel industry to provide a full complement of visitor services from the one portal in order for guests to make full use of their time when visiting.”

The additional services available mean that guests can now book restaurants, city and day-trip tours, classes in flamenco or art, and organize tickets to football games when booking their holiday accommodation or city weekend escape.

Services offered include:

-Tours including: by helicopter, Monsterrat day tours, wine or ham tasting, and ‘highlights of the city’ tours

-Classes in flamenco, private yoga and pilates

-Arrangements organized for football tickets and restaurant bookings

-Services arranged including babysitting, beauty treatments, personal shoppers, and bike and scooter rentals.

“Barcelona is a dynamic, exciting city to visit but the sheer range of choices available to first-time travellers here can be paralysing and confusing. Our guests want to spend more time soaking up life in the city, staying somewhere independent with a real sense of the local life. Our new range of additional services takes all the hassles out of planning so that guests can focus on exploring the city at their own pace and enjoying the best activities on offer,” Mr Taal explained.

“This new range of services also helps us support the many local businesses across Barcelona that are focused on providing quality experiences to tourists. We do not charge additional fees for this new service. This program is about connecting our customers to local businesses and making it easier for apartment guests to organize a customized weekend of experiences that suits their travel preferences,” Mr Taal continued.

“Since 2000, Barcelona has seen year on year tourism growth and for good reason: the great weather, ease of access, high level of safety, and wide range of activities for families, couples, groups, and singles mean that more and more people are keen to visit the city and soak up all that it has to offer.”

“We encourage travellers to make the most of their visit by exploring the additional bookings services we have on offer,” Mr Taal concluded. More details can be found at the Enjoy Barcelona website at the extra services.
