What Folks are Saying!

My Mom & I went on the Origins Tour on Friday and had a fabulous time. We had a fairly small group of 6 people which made it even better. We walked about 3 miles and along the way sampled wonderful food at 5 different spots, heard some interesting history on Sacramento that is not in the school text books and met and talked with local chefs who are cooking in the farm to table style with all fresh ingredients. Our guide, Nate, was awesome!! It was a blend of everything that makes a great Friday: food, exercise, a shot of infused Tequila, local yore & good company!! Highly, highly recommend this tour group! I was commenting to some friends that if you have people visiting that are not local, this is a great way to show them Sacramento............so much better than Old Sac, the Capitol or other usual haunts... Also.........totally accommodated my vegetarian ways!
