I had been on the Downtown Historical Tour a few years ago so when I had out of town guests coming, I thought of this as something unique and fun to do. I chose the Midtown Arts tour this time. So interesting to learn about the murals on the walls in the alleys and the history behind it. What talented artists. Our tour guide was great. Energetic, fun and full of knowledge. The food was delicious and as always ample portions. Not just a tiny two bite taste. There were 7 in our group which was a really nice size. We were lucky with the weather. If it would have been hot out, there is very little shade walking in the alleys. I will do it again when I have guests, especially from out of town. I'm looking forward to some of the new tours they have planned.

These tours are nice to take you to some new spots that you may not usually hit up on your own. Each place offered up their specialty and we were not disappointed. Wish there was a little more history provided.

We're somewhat familiar with this area of town but learned so many new things. First things first if you love art, this is an awesome mix of good food and good art. Natalie our tour guide was filled with a plethora of information and knew the ins and outs of the mural alley art and their background stories. As for the food, the selections she choose for us were fantastic. Great mix of food and beverage with a delish sweet treat at the end. She put in a vegetarian option that kinda blew my mind how good it was. Since she is a huge foodie and chef herself, Natalie was very well versed in ingredients and food trends that made the tour fun and knowledgeable.

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.
