Three of us who grew up in Sacramento (but 2 have lived elsewhere for years) took this tour and we all learned something new. Cearra was a wonderful guide -- extremely knowledgeable, at ease with older people, fun personality. The murals were very interesting and the stops for food were fantastic. I will be returning to them now that I... More

This tour is wonderful opportunity to sample the fresh tastes along and near K street. With more than 5 stops for food, do not eat before the tour! We made that mistake. Besides great food, you will get a history lesson about Sacramento and the gold rush era, you will learn about Sacramento today and how it is encouraging entrepreneurs.... More

Great way to try new places while taking time to appreciate all of the murals in midtown Sacramento. Our guide Cearra was enthusiastic and engaging and had all sorts of historical tidbits that we had never heard before. The only flaw was that we were so full after one stop it was hard to keep eating, but that's a good... More

This walking food tour is a fun and yummy way to learn about both the history of Sacramento and its current food culture. Millie is an energetic and conscientious guide with an infectious enthusiasm for Sacramento's local establishments. I recommend this unique experience to get to know the city and experience an enjoyable afternoon.

Fabulous and informative tour about the public art in Midtown. While I have lived in Midtown, many of the murals and art were new to me. Very fun to discover new things to share with friends and visitors. Food was great, guide was great, highly recommend for art lovers local or visiting!

This walking historical fabulous progressive food tour is a "must do" in Sacramento. The restaurants featured all fresh, flavorful, farm to fork delicious delights. Our tour guide, Dawnie, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable as she shared interesting historical information. Don't miss out on this tour. 5 stars at the very least for rating this tour.

This tour was excellent. It combined great food with short walks in between food. During the walks many points of interest and their history were described. Get an insider view of local Sacramento history and sample gourmet food. It is an exceptionally pleasant way to spend a few hours. If you do nothing else in Sacramento, do this. Plan ahead... More

We took the 7/15/16 Origins of Sacaramento tour with a great guide. Don't worry that you'll just get little samples of food. We were full of great food and little tidbits of information about Sacramento --both history and current restaurants and chefs. Our guide obviously knew a lot about the restaurant scene and enjoyed giving tours. If I lived in... More
