What you'll do

Participants will meet in the main square of Gracia by the clock tower. We will have short introductions and explain where we will be going and when we will have a coffee break and where we will finish. It is possible to modify the tour to include everything that people may want, including a hat shop! The participants will be given maps of Gracia where they can mark the shops that they like or may want to return to. The tour will take in local fashion designers with their studios, many jewelry designers, artesans and art shops. The tour will also include 5 of the plaças of Gracia and some history about the neighbourhood and good places to eat and drink. It will feel as though you are being shown round by a friend who knows exactly where to go and what to do. The tour will include a short stop in a cafe, part of the slow movement where they roast their own beans. We will finish in a traditional wine bodega where participants can chose and taste many local wines, vermuth or beer and order traditional tapas. This tour will give you an insight into the artistic and interesting neighbourhood of Gracia that has managed to escape mass tourism and keep its own identity.

I am a self confessed fashionista and lover of beautiful things. I have lived all over the world but moved to Gracia 6 years ago. Gracia is my community and I do all my shopping here, I have found all the amazing people and shops where you can buy unique things made locally or in workshops behind the shop. I love walking through the little streets of Gracia and discovering new places. My day job is psychology and on this tour your shopping will be an interactive personal experience, meeting designers and artists from the neighbourhood and finding that unique item to take home.

Jo is very personable and you feel almost immediately that you're shopping with one of your friends! She knows a lot of out-of-the-way unique boutiques that the average tourist, such as myself, probably wouldn't find. Had a great time with her and finished off the tour with a superb cup of coffee at Jo's favorite bistro! Highly recommend this tour!

Jo is very nice and friendly and gave us an amazing tour around Gracia. She knows the area very well and knows the local people in the shops. As well as showing us the local designers shops & workshops, she showed us some great cafés & restaurants, hidden terraces and quirky boutiques. She doesn't rush people and asks what people are interested in to make sure everyone's happy. It was a great experience all together.

It was an absolute pleasure meeting Jo, I felt welcomed & completely comfortable in her company. She had a good knowledge of all the local designers & her area. I was introduced to each one personally & everything was unique, I found many things I liked & Jo gave me a local map which marked each place we visited. There was time to stop for a coffee at a wonderful place that made the best coffee. We shared a lovely time together & it felt like shopping with a girlfriend. I would highly recommend this tour as it takes you away from the crowds & business of Barcelona.Jo designs the tour around any special requests & I did not once feel rushed & we even had time to stop for a glass of Cava which was nice as I was travelling alone & enjoyed the company. Thanks Jo for a great tour.

This was my first airbnb experience and I wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't have much time and wanted to do some shopping. Jo was great fun andtook me to amazing shops that I wouldn't have found and I met some designers and got some really unique things to take home. JO knew a lot obout Gracia and we walked though many plaças. The coffee stop was in a great place and we finished with a nice glass of wine in a traditonal bodega where I got to chose from many local wines. A lovely way to finish. I would do it again.

I am not that good at shopping and knew I had to buy a wedding outfit and some presents for a big family event. I booked this tour in desperation and it ended up being really fun and useful. I found a great wedding outfit and more. Most of all I actually enjoyed. I would do it again. Family very happy in Park for a couple of hours. Would recommend to anybody. Jo knows how to find tings and has a really good eye.

Jo's tour was really fun. I never would have found all those amazing shops or the lovely coffee shop and Bodega where we stopped. Jo knew a lot of the designers and we found some clothes for us and all our presents. Amazing jewelry and children's clothes too. It was great to see the plaças and walk the beautiful streets of Gracia. A good experience all round and Jo was the best host who gave us a lot of tips and took us to some great places. Very passionate about supporting her community and their work.
