Very much the thinking man's (or woman's!) tour provider, Icono Serveis Culturals is dedicated to showing you Barcelona "like you've never seen it before" with an impressive array of original themed tours, literary walks, creative workshops and team-building activities. Amongst their most popular experiences is The Shadow of the Wind tour, where you retrace the footsteps of the glittering cast of characters from Carlos Ruiz Zafron's enigmatic best-seller. If you're more of a film buff however you can rediscover the sets of the likes of Vicki Cristina Barcelona and Perfume and get the behind-the-scenes gossip during Icono's guided Movie Walking Tour. For those who prefer something a little more hands-on, what about learning how to paint like Picasso, mastering how to dance flamenco or taking on a scavenger hunt challenge? Icono pride themselves on their ability to tailor make experiences for your needs and no group is excluded: businesses, families, adults, children can all be catered for. Check their website for more ideas.
