This paper introduces the “tourist problem” and presents an Multi-agent system based solution for it. A set of agents that uses a case-based reasoning system to identify actions and plans is capable of determining the most suitable itinerary with restrictions for a tourist. Wireless devises are used by the tourists to interact with the agent. Variational Calculus is used during the reasoning process to identify the set of posible problem solutions and Jacobi fields to find the most replanning-able solution. This analytical method facilitates the identification of a tourist itinerary in advance and is also capable of modifying the tourist route in execution time. To conclude, a case of typical use is shown, in which a tourist requests to the W-planner the most appropriate route that fits in well with the requirements.
