Vad du kommer att göra

Unlike most history walks offered in Philadelphia, this one's all about women! Learn about Lady Changemakers in the City of Sisterly Affection (and Brotherly Love)!

The experience starts in Olde City, where we'll visit areas related to 17th and 18th-century Philadelphia women who set early standards for women's involvement in religion, politics, and philanthropy. We'll visit some Olde City tourist sites here, so bring a camera!

Then, we'll walk toward Independence Hall to explore locations where Philadelphia's most renowned women abolitionists and women's rights activists of the 19th century are remembered, and where many of them lived and worked. A number of sites and markers will be viewed and explained in this area.

Moving from the Independence Hall area back to Olde City, we'll explore the history of 20th century Philadelphia women involved in LGBT rights and historic preservation activism. We'll view some historic sites and markers here, as well as the nation's oldest - and arguably its most picturesque - residential block.

The tour takes about two hours and will end at a local pub, where we'll enjoy a draft beer (included for guests 21+ with ID).

Born and raised in Philadelphia, and having studied social work and gender at local universities, I am passionate about the social history of the City of Brotherly Love. For the last five years, I have been independently hosting small tour groups to explore Philadelphia women's and immigrant history.

Cheryl's tour is fascinating! She shares a lot of information and stories that are not found in history books or easily accessible online. She shows pictures of the women and uses compelling details to paint a picture of what their lives would have been like. Her tour is a great way to see and explore Old City as she stops at many of the most historical spots and shows off some that are easy to walk-right-by without the help of a guide. You end at an old-style bar, one of the coolest in the city, I think. One of the other benefits is that we took it in the evening when it was not to hot/sunny and when a lot of the other tourist options are closed. We definitely recommend this tour!

I really enjoyed the tour! Cheryl was very knowledgeable and provided a perspective on parts of history that are often overlooked. She was very friendly and the tour felt much more personal than tours offered by other groups.

Cheryl was fantastic! She knew her information and was friendly. There was a mishap with the AirBNB app and she was not notified of my booking. She offered to give me the tour later in the day and arrived as soon as she could. It was a private tour and we shared stories and learned a lot from each other. She is clearly passionate about her subject and was a wonderful guide.

Cheryl was a wonderful guide to the women and history of Philadelphia / Founding Fathers and also tips on other great things to enjoy in the city ( including where to get the best authentic Philly pretzel ). Additionally because this was a walking tour, instead of in a museum, we got to see the great local neighborhoods of Philly as we strolled to different historical sites. Cheryl has a real passion and knowledge of the topic. Everyone in the group had 2-3 historical people / events they didn't know about. As an added bonus after the tour, Cheryl sent everyone a links to videos on each of women she covered in the tour ( We have never had that happen before! Was so great! )
