• Now: Now in their eighth season, Old Sacramento Underground Tours give guests the unique opportunity to explore what’s been hidden beneath the city for more than 150 years, while uncovering the facts and legends that lie below historic buildings and sidewalks. Tour guests explore excavated foundations and enclosed pathways, while entertaining and knowledgeable tour guides recount the tales of the devastation, perseverance and determination that led to California’s only successful street-raising project. Regular tours of the underground last approximately one hour and cost $15 for adults, and $10 for youths (ages 6-17); children 5 and younger are free.

• Through October: Though they sell out quickly, the adult-only Underground After Hours tours are now offered most Thursday through Saturday evenings until mid-October. For the adult-only evening tours, guides will share some of the dark secrets and racy tales lurking in Old Sacramento’s underground history. The adult-only Underground After Hours evening tours last approximately an hour and a half and cost $20 per person (only guests 21 and older will be admitted).

• Through December: Old Sacramento guests can now experience what it was like to catch gold fever while getting actively involved in the intriguing and new Gold Fever! guided tours. Each tour guest has the unique opportunity to take on the persona of a character in history — or a “real-life rascal” — who scratched and clawed their way to make this area the center of the Gold Rush. Never the same tour twice, the all new Gold Fever! tours relive Sacramento’s early days when gold fever ruled amid horrible disasters that threatened fates and fortunes. To spice things up even more, elements of chance are introduced that could change the fate of tour guests. Through the course of the lively tours that meander through Old Sacramento, visitors find out if they successfully escaped the many floods, if they managed to keep their gold dust (or lose it all at the gambling tables) and if they survived the fires, disease and occasional steamboat explosion.
