Went on the Downtown Sac food tour with tour guide Cearra. I and my 2 other family members had a very good time. Food was delicious and our guide was fun, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable. We originally signed up for the Midtown food tour. I appreciated that Dawnie called after checking the weather to offer the Downtown one instead, as it had more shade and less walking, which we readily agreed to in the 90+ degree heat. Would definitely recommend to anyone (tourist or local) who wants to get to know some of the classic as well as hidden / newer food gems in Sac.

I've lived in Sacramento for 15 years and learned more about the city during this three hour tour than all of those years combined. My brother and I were entertained and fascinated by Siarra on Sunday's Downtown tour primarily on K Street. The anecdotes about architecture, prohibition, and re-inventions of Sacramento commerce were interesting and well told by the guide, Siarra. Great food, fun restaurant choices. Definitely go hungry and pace yourself; it's a lot of food. There are plenty of shade spots if its a hot day, so don't let the weather deter you.

Our tour guide was Cierra; very friendly, very knowledgeable, great personality, & very accommodating. When i was booking, I thought the price was a little high compared to most of the other food tours I've taken; but I've got to say, there was PLENTY of food; so much food that we took to-go boxes at a few of the spots. Every stop was local and every stop served excellent food. Highly recommend the Sutter tour w/ Cierra.

This was a great experience to learn about the history of downtown Sacramento, to sample some outstanding food, and to find some great restaurants.
Our tour guide Millie, made it fun and interesting. She managed the tour with skill and humor and made sure we enjoyed the experience. We will book another tour and ask for Millie!

This was a very disappointing historical tour given by Natalie! Poor Natalie did not seem very well versed about the historical aspect. Food was good though walking tour very short. The tour did not meet expectations and I would not recommend.

We do strive to offer our guests the very best in professionalism, historical knowledge, and great food but, as humans, we may not always hit that mark. Your comments are important to us. Thank you for your feedback.
