Kansas City Fun Tours Presents The Crazy Little Women Tour
Kansas City Fun Tours is adding a new comedy tour on their trolleys. Just in time for Women's History Month, The Crazy Little Women Tour rolls out March 1 and 2 to educate and entertain both locals and tourists about the women who helped build Kansas City. The two-hour tour is led by Wendy Thompson and Jessica Whitfield (in character as Moonbeam and Valencia) and showcases the adventures-and misadventures-that propelled KC women into the limelight through the years. The dynamic guides present a light-hearted look at local women including Loula Long, Annie Chambers, Sally Rand, and Tiera Farrow, along with different takes from each side of the feminist generation gap.
Kansas City Fun Tours has been operating the trolley tours for five years now. The trolley tours highlight the popular sights of Kansas City in a beautiful, air- conditioned, authentically reproduced trolley. Tom McIntosh, owner of Kansas City Fun Tours, has teamed up with Wendy Thompson, formerly known as The Mystery Train lady, to have a little fun with Kansas City's history, or as Moonbeam likes to say, "herstory."
The Crazy Little Women Tours will be held on Fridays and Saturdays at 4 p.m. Each tour runs two hours with a break scheduled in the historic 18th and Vine district. The tour is appropriate for ages 14 and up. Tickets are $35 per person. Advance reserva- tions are strongly recommended and can be made by calling (816) 500-5417 or by visiting www.kcfuntours.com.
