A wonderful experience in a city that should have always had tours built around its legendary women. A brilliant idea with a brilliant founder to bring it to life. Highly recommend!

I took the Women of Paris tour, because I wanted to hear different voices from what I was reading in history books. I wanted to learn about some of the well know women in Paris. I found it the perfect tour. I recommend it.

The Women of Paris tour was a fantastic antidote to the typical walking tour with a focus on arguably the more interesting sex! I would absolutely recommend it. The chocolate didn't hurt, either!
