“Perfect infusion of culture, history and taste bud tantalization!” Being still somewhat new not only to the area but to the west coast in general, this was an amazing way to learn more about what Sacramento has to offer and find some new dining options. I would highly recommend this to anyone whether you are a Sacramento transplant, visitor or spent your whole life here. While the hosts and chefs at each restaurant were especially welcoming (Thank you Chef Shannon at Cafe Bernardo!), Ashley our Tour Guide made the experience outstanding! She not only had amazing insight to share on the culture and history of Sacramento, there was a true passion in her eyes as she led us through the tour. I can't wait to try the other tours out and trust me... my local friends from Sacramento have already asked to join.

What a wonderful day we had with Lisa on our tour. She is so knowledgeable about the history of Sacramento, the great restaurants and the architecture of the area. She stresses the importance of eating healthy, locally grown food and chose great places for us to enjoy every bite...the Grange Restaurant & Bar, 524 Mexican Restaurant, Sugar & spice Specialty Desserts, Shine Coffeehouse, Sampinos Towne Foods and Ambrosia Cafe and Catering! We met other nice folks so that was a real bonus to a perfect day. We're looking forward to doing more tours with Lisa when she expands the areas she will tour. Thanks, Lisa!

I spent Friday afternoon on the Origins of Sacramento Food Tour. As a Sacramento newbie, I loved getting the chance to explore the Sutter District and East Sac while gaining some really interesting historical knowledge on my new city. The food was fantastic! All of the restaurants and shops that we visited embrace the farm to fork possibilities that living in such an agricultural hub allows. Getting to hear directly from the chefs about their passion for working with local ingredients was a real standout on the tour. We sampled items from six different locations. Bring your appetites because the samples are extremely generous in addition to being incredibly delicious. Our tour guide, Ashley, was so knowledgeable about the city's history and so passionate about what Local Roots and it's restaurant partners are offering to the community. It was infectious and made for a fantastic tour. I'd recommend Local Roots Food Tours to visitors and locals alike. Can't wait to try out their other offerings!

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!!

Took this tour in a group of 12 for a bachelorette party. Lisa was amazing ... from her patience through initial emails and planning, to being a wonderful tour guide. We all enjoyed the day and loved learning about and experiencing what Murphy's has to offer. We look forward to bringing our spouses back to experience another tour soon!!

I read about this tour on Trip Advisor and tried it. Loved it! All of the food was excellent and listening to the chefs talk was interesting. We learned a little bit about Sacramento history as well. I would definitely recommend it.

Bethany made the City of Trees tour one of the highlights of our Northern California vacation. Our favorite parts of the tour were the Grange Restaurant, the incredible blueberry smoothie, the albondigas soup, the out of this world pastries at Sugar and Spice and Tony's great pasta demonstration at Sempinos. Delicious-- and the easiest and most enjoyable 2 1/2 mile walk I can remember!
Joan Jacobson, Newhall, CA

Out of all the "touristry" trips and tours we did while in Sacramento, this was by far our favorite. We were fortunate to have the tour guide all to ourselves, and walked through some of the hidden gems and neighborhoods of Sacramento, seeing and hearing the history of many beautiful homes and buildings, as well as sampling culinary delights in some great restaurants. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the city.

Great time with Ashley and all the wonderful tastes of Sacramento K Street! Every stop offered more tasty sensations and promises to return for the full meal deal :) These walking tours are amazing and everyone should take advantage of this excellent chance for checking our the great places we have right here in the Sacramento Valley.

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.
Mary Ann J, Murphys, CA

If you want access to the very best food tours in Northern California, look no further than Local Roots Food Tours... they are simply the best at what they do!
David Naves, Auburn, CA

We enjoyed this tour so much we considered extending our vacation just so we could do more tours and return to the areas we explored.Bethany was a wonderful guide and kept the pace up with interesting facts and conversation. The restaurants we visited were top notch. We were too full to go back at dinner time that night, but we made a special trip the next morning to eat at Bernardo's before flying back to Texas. Can't wait to visit Sacramento again so we can do more tours. Highly recommend this experience!
