Amazing! So wonderful to learn the history as we walked through the through the Alkalai and Mansion Flats. We stopped at wonderful restaurants. Can't wait for the food tour through the fabulous forties in East Sac! Go hungry. You will not be able to eat dinner!

All I can say is WOW! The heat was (almost) forgotten as we walked city streets, were treated to delish food, inside information about the restaurants, and local history. I recommend this tour to anyone--locals and tourists alike--as it's a great way to learn about Sacramento. And not to be forgotten was our guide, Nate. They don't come any better. I will definitely go on some of the other tours.

The Local Roots Food Tour at Murphys, CA is truly a winner --- participants get so much information including history of the town, explanation of the historic sites and buildings, wine tasting, food tastes at various of the restaurants, and a healthy stroll through the city! A great way to get acquainted with this charming area.

It is about time that something like this is available in Sacramento! Lisa is an engaging guide with a positive attitude and lots of history at the tip of her tongue. She leads her groups on a culinary discovery walk of downtown residential areas near the capitol, talking about the city's history and stopping at local restaurants, bakeries, coffee houses and delis for foods that delight and surprise. The walk is flat, easy and punctuated with stops that make it a delight on a fine day. Top that with discount coupons for future visits and you'll discover new favorite haunts. Bravo, Lisa!

My Mom & I went on the Origins Tour on Friday and had a fabulous time. We had a fairly small group of 6 people which made it even better. We walked about 3 miles and along the way sampled wonderful food at 5 different spots, heard some interesting history on Sacramento that is not in the school text books and met and talked with local chefs who are cooking in the farm to table style with all fresh ingredients. Our guide, Nate, was awesome!! It was a blend of everything that makes a great Friday: food, exercise, a shot of infused Tequila, local yore & good company!! Highly, highly recommend this tour group! I was commenting to some friends that if you have people visiting that are not local, this is a great way to show them Sacramento............so much better than Old Sac, the Capitol or other usual haunts...
Also.........totally accommodated my vegetarian ways!

Nevada City - Outstanding Tour. Have told many friends what a great time we had. Learned about Nevada City and its unique history. The merchants that we visited were very interesting and their eats/beverages were extremely delicious.

My husband and I had the opportunity to take this tour to celebrate his birthday. It was a beautiful day for the tour. We loved all of the historical information we recevied throughout the tour, and enjoyed the wide variety of cuisine including stuffed dates with goat cheese!! Delicious!! From the French to the German to the European... the food was all amazing. Lisa was alot of fun too... and knew her stuff!!
The walking, the talking, the eating...it was all fabulous. We plan on taking another tour soon, and would highly recommend anyone looking for something fun and different to do, try this!!

Some great friends who recently moved here invited us out for a day of fun! Bethany our tour extraordinaire was beyond words!! Let\'s just say that our 6 of 8 in the group can be ( hopefully delightful) a hand full! Bethany was most informative and fun! While we had eaten at several of the restaraunts we visited, we knew little of the background or history. It was great to hear the passion from each of the Chefs about the food we have so many times enjoyed but obviously knew little of how it was created! This was also an enlightening experience as to where we live. Little did we know about our own surroundings that we took for granted! Big THANKS to Bethany for a wonderful day of food, information, fun, food, a good walk, food, and for opening our eyes to the greatness and sustainability around us, did I say food?!! We will continue to support the local eateries and giggle about the memories of the day! Thank you!! We will see you again soon!!

Highly recommend this! Our tour guide, Joelle, was knowledgeable, funny, gracious, and a joy to spend the day with. This was a great introduction to the city for us out-of-towners, but would be fabulous for residents as well. The chefs were informative and easy to talk with. It was obvious they love what they do. I look forward to sharing this experience with visitors once we relocate to your lovely city! Oh...and the weather was perfect! We couldn't have asked for a better day. Cheers!

The food/history tour was really fun. Bethany, our guide, is charming, a history geek, a foodie, and overflows with enthusiasm and information. We just moved to the area, but the locals in our group also seemed to enjoy the day and we shared information and bonded over great eats.

I purchased this walking food tour for my mother on her birthday. She couldn’t stop raving about how much fun and wonderful it was! She loved the food wants to go back and she loved the tour guide who was very knowledgeable. She said that the food had so many wonderful flavors. They even got to see the mayor walking down K Street. Highly recommend for anyone that enjoys delicious food and has a aspiration for K Street History!

Full from delicious food! We had expected Costco-sized samples but ended up being very full from the good sized servings. I would suggest not having breakfast to maximize your experience.
The dining experience was awesome. The food was tasty and I couldn't identify any bad food (ok, except for the sour cactus which is not my cup of tea. But the garlic shrimps and mango margarita more than make up for it). The sequence of restaurant was also thoughtful and there was a good mix of entrees, desserts, and drinks.
In between restaurants, Bethany showed us around town and told interesting stories of various buildings. You can't go wrong spending an afternoon with great food and fun stories in a historical city.

Thank you so much for a very enjoyable food tour last Saturday. Candace, Barbara and I had the very best time, ever,in Murphys. We agreed the food and beverages,the quality,variety, and venues, could not have been more perfect - and I'm the vegetarian in the group! Even the Harleys filling up the town added something to the experience. We returned to Val du Vino Winery, joined the wine club, and went home with nine bottles of wine. We plan to journey back down to pick our wine up every few months, which will give us the opportunity to explore the area better and have a meal at one of the great restaurants in town. We had such a great day. Thank you again for making this outing so memorable.

I would highly recommend this tour of the history of Sacramento along with our 6 stops for great food. It's a good thing walking was included as what I thought would be tastes of food wound up to be a lot more!
— Brenda, Carmichael, CA
I booked this tour as a birthday present for my mother and I could not have been more pleased. Bethany was energetic, passionate and knowledgable. Highlights for us were the truffle macaroni and cheese at Morgans, nopales at 524, and the perfect cupcakes (and charming baker) at Sugar and Spice. This was a wonderful way to learn about the unique history of Sacramento and enjoy a beautiful day with a nice group of new friends. Can't wait to come back again and experience one of the new tours that are starting soon. Thanks for an excellent time!
