Women of Paris

Paris, France
About Women of Paris
The first Paris walking tours devoted entirely to women's history and influence. Each tour examines the lives of a variety of women who have played a defining role in different areas of the city's history. The Essential tour, starting at the Pantheon in Paris' Latin Quarter, guides visitors through the charming streets of the famous Left Bank, passing landmarks such as the Jardins de Luxembourg and the wonderfully chic Saint-Germain-des-Prés district - unravelling stories of incredible women at every turn. The Sugar and Spice tour explores the lives of women who have greatly influenced literature, not only in Paris but the rest of the world whilst meandering through the streets they once lived in and stopping off along the way at a variety of patisseries and chocolatiers to sample the local sweets. The newest tour, the Drama Queens tour, highlights some of the heroines of the Parisian stage, musical and theatrical, as it weaves through the city's historical theatre district.

Heidi was friendly, knowledgeable, and a great storyteller. She connected the dots on a lot of French history and taught me things I never learned in school. The walking and standing was challenging for me—45, fairly sedentary—but manageable. I highly recommend this tour. Because she...More

By far my favorite thing I did in Paris. It felt Less like a tour and more like meeting up with an exceptionally knowledgeable and witty friend. The stops for sweets along the way were perfect and I loved learning about amazing literary women.
