Guests to Old Sacramento can experience what it was like to catch gold fever while getting actively involved in the intriguing Gold Fever! guided tours available every weekend this summer (and through the end of the year). Tour guests take on personas of characters in history – or “real-life rascals” – who scratched and clawed their way to make this area the center of the Gold Rush. 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 discover 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. Gold Fever! tours last approximately one hour and cost $10 for adults, $6 for children 6 to 17 and are free for children five and under.
All underground tours depart from the Sacramento History Museum (101 I Street) whereas the Gold Fever! tours depart from the Sacramento Visitors Center (1002 Second Street). As an incentive to experience both tours, guests who “bundle” the tours (purchase tickets to both a Gold Fever! and a regular Underground Tour, not necessarily on the same day) can enjoy a reduced cost of $20 per adult for the two tours, and $13 for youth for the two tours plus receive a one-time free admission to the Sacramento History Museum.
Tour dates and times fluctuate with the seasons and during holiday weekends; please visit the website for the most updated schedule. For more information or to purchase advance tickets for Gold Fever!, Old Sacramento Underground or Underground After Hours tours, please visit www.sachistorymuseum.org. Proceeds from the tours benefit the Sacramento History Alliance programs and the Sacramento History Museum.
