“Reasonably Priced and Informative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

It is interesting to learn about the history of a city that was prone to flooding and the interesting solutions people came up with in order to solve the problem. The tour is a little less than an hour long, and they provide head sets so that you can hear the tour guide at all times. You can get tickets on line or at the Sacramento History Museum at I Street and Front Street.

“Better Than Expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

Miss Odessa was our guide and she was a hoot! All are given headsets so you can clearly hear your guide while you are walking around outside. I'm fascinated with gold rush era history and this tour enlightened me on many things I was unaware of. You get to explore 2 different underground areas that have numerous artifacts that were found and are also told about various buildings above ground. A must if you are in Old Sac!

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Lived here 50 years, born and raised, still did not know the history! Very interesting and informative. We were also given the opportunity to go through the museum for half price. Had a great day and a very nice lunch nearby as well. It was fun to pretend to be a tourist and check out our own city's history.

“Period costumes, small groups, very informative.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013 via mobile

We signed up online for this tour and it was great! A little pricey for an hour tour, but you get to learn all about Sacramento history and how they raised the city, which was very interesting. You can see the old Pony express stop and hear people walking above you. This tour uses headphones so everyone can clearly hear the tour guide and there isn't a ton of walking and benches available at several places where the guide stops to talk. Book ahead and make sure to check out the museum too, you get half price admission with the tour purchase.

“Not Very Much to Talk About”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013 via mobile

This tour seemed like they were stretching out the 6 things they had to show us into an hour tour. But the museum was good.
