What Folks are Saying!

Had a wonderful time with my Mom (75 y.o.) and my son (11 y.o) on this tour. We were told it was 2 miles of walking, but it did not seem like it at all (probably because there were 6 stops for eating amazing food at the various restaurants and many other stops for seeing/hearing about the wonderful history of Sacramento). Bethany was our guide and she was great. Our tour had 8 people total which was nice. Parking can be expensive, but there are 10 hour parking meters on the streets that we learned about on the tour (one couple had gotten one of those spots). Look up: "Long-Term Meter Location Map Sacramento" on the internet to find them, and bring quarters. Wished we could have seen pasta being made at Sampinos, but otherwise, the tour was a GREAT, must-do tour. My mom, son and myself loved it. Favorites on this tour were the banana-mango smoothie at Shine, Salmon with honey, tomato caramelized glaze on top of pesto rice at Morgans, everything at Sugar and Spice, the shrimp at 524 Mexican Restaurant, and the chicken itself and the spinach pasta at Sampinos.
