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

Ok, lets start with how professional these folks are. I tried to book the tour late and the internet would not take my booking.....less than 24 hours before the tour....makes sense. So I send an email and the owner Donnie calls me back. She could not have been nicer! We arrive for the tour and meet our tour guide Ciara... More

We had a great walking tour. Visiting a Mexican restaurant, then a sandwich shop, a spice shop, tea shop, candy store and ice cream shop. My favorite was the sandwich shop with Apple, herb cream cheese on focaccia grilled cheese. Second favorite was the Mexican soup at mayahuel. Our tour guide was energetic, knowledgeable and clearly loves her city. Lisa

The tour was really nice (we did the historical one). At the beginning I was thinking that maybe 3 and a half hours was going to be too long, but it wasn't! Millie, our tour guide, was great, very entertaining! The tour was even longer than 3h and a half and, as the time passed it got better! We went... More
