Women-Led Tours

Women-Led Tours

A practical and innovative way to support female, micro-entrepreneurship, women-led is a new range of tours, designed to both empower women and celebrate multiculturalism within our cities.

The tours are run by women who have fled extraordinary circumstances. Our guides Ella, Sefanit and Kaoutar arrived in the UK from Albania, Ethiopia and Morocco, with little money, limited English and no connections. Now, with the help of Intrepid Urban Adventures and Women in Travel, they are working as tour guides, taking travellers into their communities and showing first-hand how traditions and cultures can transcend borders.

Tours are currently available in London, and we hope to offer more cities soon.

Whether you go for an Ethiopian coffee ceremony in Shephard Bush, a taste and flavours of the Balkans on the South bank or Moroccan tea and sweets, you will be experiencing the city in new and original ways…and most importantly you will help change women’s lives for the better!

These tours are ready to be enjoyed and make an ideal day out for domestic, international, leisure and business visitors alike. They can also be used as team building, corporate incentives and similar activities.

We are sorry that currently our Moroccan and Balkans tours are on hold as our tour guides have now progressed to full time jobs! If you have bought a gift voucher or were hoping to book an in-person tour, please be aware that we are training new guides and look forward to starting the tours again in the new year!  If you have any queries please contact us and we would be happy to assist.
