Gold Rush Legacy Tours are lead by docents in period dress who describe life in the 1850s using original and reconstructed buildings as a historic backdrop. Old Sacramento Architectural Tours help guests understand the evolution of the city through examination of its early architecture.
These "Above Ground" tours are offered in addition to the popular underground Sacramento program that resumed this month.
