Offer a VIP Experience During El Clasico

Staff writer – Abril 19, 2018

The official date has been set for El Clasico 2018. On May 6th, Barcelona is set to face off against Real Madrid at Camp Nou. Everyone’s anxiously waiting to see who wins, and there’s no question that it will be a popular event. The question isn’t whether or not people will come, but what they’ll do in Barcelona while they’re there.

As a travel agent or company, it’s your job to suggest the best attractions and performances to ensure that your clients have a luxury VIP experience. But what is there to do in Barcelona during El Clasico?

Start at the stadium
 

First of all, don’t forget that your clients are there to watch football. Be sure they get the best seats in the stadium, and count on that being the crowning jewel in their VIP experience in Barcelona.

Choose the best place to rest
 

It’s easy to overlook hotels, since ideally your clients will be out experiencing the city instead of holed up in their hotel room. For the best VIP experience, however, your customers need somewhere luxurious to relax at night. Barcelona has a wide selection of luxury hotels, including the Barcelona Gran Hotel Calderón, Hotel Eurostars Grand Marina, W Barcelona, Meliá Barcelona Sarrià and others.

Recommend the best food
 

A VIP experience should involve all of the senses, including the taste buds. Food is one of the most exciting parts of travel for many adventurers. Barcelona has a slew of delicious restaurants, including fine dining restaurants Roca Moo, Hisop Restaurant, and Lasarte.

Seek out the best entertainment
 

Is it really a trip to Barcelona if you don’t see a Flamenco dance? There are many flamenco shows available, either by themselves in venues like Tablao Cordobes or La Bodega Flamenca, or in conjunction with walking tours of the city.

Sample the best wine
 

There’s no shortage of wine-tasting opportunities in Barcelona. The problem is choosing the best one. You can suggest wine tours from Montserrat and Codorniu, offer a tour of a Cistercian monastery with wine tasting, or suggest a cave tasting or other private tours.

Experience the city itself.
 

You don’t necessarily have to schedule your clients’ entire day. The city of Barcelona is beautiful enough in itself. Barri Gotic, or Gothic Quarter, is a historic walking area with stunning architecture and great photo opportunities. Many churches and cathedrals, like Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, can also be seen from the streets of this beautiful city.
