A group of 5 of us booked this tour to celebrate our friends birthday. It was perfect. Loved learning about new (at least-to-me) restaurants and shops. Loved learning about some history of the city of Sacramento. The food was amazing and our guide was just great. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

We had some time to spend in Sacramento so booked this walking tour of downtown Sacramento. We met our guide, Millie, at the Hyatt then spent the next 3 hours walking around downtown Sacramento and visited 4 restaurants and a candy shop. Every stop was well worth it in terms of quality of the food. There was a good representation of different types of food but more importantly, ingredients that were locally sourced so very fresh.

We really enjoyed the samplings and were so stuffed at the end of our tour. Millie was very energetic and informative. Occasionally we would even stop for a little historical tidbit on our way to a restaurant. If you love food, this is your tour.

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 know what they serve. The one suggestion we have would be to serve food in bite-sized pieces; we wanted to try everything and would have had more self-control if they came in small portions. Lasting memory -- hot chocolate and macarons at Ginger Elizabeth! Thanks, Cearra!

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. You will get to see some sites, and get lots of recommendations for what else to do in Sacramento. It is a wonderful introduction to the city if this is your first trip, or a great eye opening experience if you have been to Sacramento before.

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 problem to have! Would love to take the other tours they offer.
