Owner description: 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.

An excellent tour - Catherine was very enthusiastic and my daughter and I added to our knowledge of Paris. It was good to hear about the unsung women who contributed to the city over the centuries. Too often forgotten, the women cited never the less added to the history of a great city. Thank you

Informative and fun tour of a beautiful part of Paris. The guide was engaging and knowledgeable. I learned a lot about the history of Paris from a feminist perspective, and enjoyed the beautiful sights along the way. Would recommend!

This walk was a wonderful way to rediscover and explore some of the amazing women’s stories and beautiful neighbourhoods of Paris. Katy was a great guide and an enthusiastic story teller. Really inspiring stuff!

Heidi is a wonderful tour guide. Very personable, friendly, with a bright spirit. And quite knowledgeable. Fun facts mixed in with the more serious side of history and just when you start to feel like it's a lot of information she walks you to yet another fabulous sweet shop and even gives you background there. I took my 11-yr-old granddaughter with me on this tour and some of it was certainly too dense for her; in spite of that she very much enjoyed herself. And, it's never too early to start teaching women's history! Don't hesitate to sign up...you'll really be missing something sweet and spicy!

My sister and I did this tour in June. Originally, we had booked the Essential Women tour, but we changed to the Sugar & Spice tour. We absolutely loved it. Heidi was so great at judging when we needed more information. She was very intuitive and the tour felt like she was personalizing it for us. As others have said, you can tell that she is passionate about the subject, and about sharing the Parisian female history with us. We learned so much about women writers, food, and about the feminist movement in France in general. We highly recommend it and I can't wait to come back and do the second tour! Definitely go ahead and book it!
