Gold Fever!
From 4/1/2017 through 12/17/2017

Relive Sacramento’s wild early days, when gold ruled – but horrible disasters threatened your fortune and your life! Will you escape the many floods – or will they wash away your brand-new business? Will you keep your gold dust, or lose it all at the gambling tables? What will it take to succeed amid fires, disease and the occasional steamboat explosion? Catch Gold Fever! and find out – it’s never the same tour twice!
Old Sacramento Underground Tour (Old Sacramento Underground)
From 4/1/2017 through 12/31/2017

Come see and learn how Sacramento lifted itself up out of the flood waters during the 1860s and 1870s!

Tour guides explain how the streets and buildings were “Jacked Up!” to avoid further flooding as visitors explore two spaces that were created by the city’s successful raising process. This historical tour includes hollow sidewalks, sloped alleyways, and the Underground spaces themselves. Our colorful cast of guides ensures no two tours are ever the same!
Underground After Hours
From 5/4/2017 through 10/26/2017

Relive the night life of Gold Rush Sacramento – if you dare!

Your guides for Underground After Hours dwell on matters they just can’t discuss on the daytime tours: Murder, mischief, madness, mayhem – and madams!

Spend a night on the new town with a shady character from the past, who’ll show you around to the saloons, gaming halls, theaters and houses of ill-fame – places you can only see in the twilight. Meet swindlers, soiled doves and sneaky speculators! Hear all the gossip on murders of passion, political intrigue, and the century’s most notorious woman! Try your hand at a game of chance!

It’s a gamblers’ paradise!

Needless to say, you must be 21 or older to take part.
