Overview

This Paris walking tour reveals the lesser-told side of the city’s history; one dominated not by great men but by inspirational women, who persevered within a bastion of patriarchy to make their mark on Paris, and the world. Starting at the Panthéon in Paris’ Latin Quarter and ending at the Pont de l’Archevêché, this walk guides you through the charming streets of the famous Left Bank, passing landmarks such as the Panthéon, the Jardins de Luxembourg, and the wonderfully chic Saint-Germain-des-Prés district – unravelling stories of incredible women at every turn. The empowering, signature Women of Paris tour is led by our witty, entertaining, and informative guides who can’t wait to introduce you to influential women of Paris’ past. Great for couples and groups Monday – Saturday at 10 am or 2pm Meeting point : Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont, Place Sainte-Geneviève – 75005 Paris

FAQs

Tours typically last between 2-3 hours depending on the pace of the group.

We understand that you might run into traffic or delays when you're on your way to a tour and in that case we just ask that you inform your guide. You will find contact details in your booking confirmation email. The best thing to do is call us or send a quick email or text. 

We will usually still run tours even in bad weather so please dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes. If the weather is very extreme we may contact you ahead of time to try and reschedule but that's unlikely. If the weather is very hot please make sure you bring water with you! 

Our tours do not always start and finish in the same place so you will find information about where the tour starts and finishes in your booking confirmation email. The guide will be able to give you directions from the end point so you can get to your next destination. 

We like to keep the groups nice and intimate so the max guest count is 15 for the Essential tour. 

Everyone is welcome to join our tours! The theme of the tours is women's history but we think that they are interesting for anyone and everyone :)

Children are welcome to join however the tours are long and so we ask you to consider your child's attention span and stamina for walking before booking. Please also bear in mind that while the tour content is clean, we do discuss some more adult themes such as sex and death.
