This work presents the results of designing a multiagent system for the tourism sector, whose objective is to give support to the tourist before and during his travel by means of mobile devices. The system focuses on the creation of itineraries, but besides allows the booking, publication and notification of changes in the services. The system was designed with the PASSI methodology and a prototype is being implemented over Jade.
