Camilla K

Despite growing up in this area, there were many things that I had never learned until I took this tour. Katie's ability to bring these historical figures to life is truly remarkable, and I highly recommend her. I am eagerly looking forward to taking her other tours in the future!

Wanda F

I would like to recommend this walking tour as Katie is extremely knowledgeable. As a European, I learned a great deal about the remarkable women and their accomplishments that were not appropriately recognized. The tour will leave you with a wealth of knowledge that you did not have before. Moreover, Katie's company is enjoyable - she has a great sense of humor and keeps things engaging throughout the tour. Overall, it was a fascinating and informative experience!

Eileen J

Our tour guide was exceptionally well-informed and demonstrated great skill in storytelling. It was evident that she had invested significant time and effort into planning and organizing the tour's structure and content.
