Book a Tour

The first Paris walking tours devoted entirely to women’s history and influence.

Each Women of Paris 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, music, and theatre, as it weaves through the city’s historical theatre district.

Knowledgeable, Delicious, Unique

"This tour was amazing and Heidi is so fantastic! I love that this is a women-run business giving tours about the women who also pioneered some of the first businesses of France! We learned so much about the history of France’s women writers, and I would love to see these tours all over the world someday! Would highly recommend."

Amazing tour of the literary women of Paris!

"Heidi took us on an amazing tour of the literary women of Paris, along with five stops for essential Parisian sweet treats. Her knowledge of Paris, literature, history and the life and writings of each author was amazing. She hit this one out of the park! I will definitely be back to see what she comes with next. I highly recommend this for something a little different, and highly entertaining."

Essential walk

"The Tour was the best thing i’ve done in Paris so far, I felt incredibly proud of the women before me that have done so much for this city and for this country. Heidi told us a lot of stories about not just famous women but also about women whose name was unfairly forgotten. We discovered new and hidden parts of Paris and I have absolutely loved this experience!"

Magical tour of Paris!

"We took the tour on Bastille Day, a hot summer afternoon, and it was magical! Heidi is a very entertaining guide, witty and knowledgeable. When I walk around I now look for other hidden signs of the great women that really made the history of this city!"
