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!!

Among stops for ample portions of food and drink, our knowlegeable guide walked with us through the beautiful town of Nevada City. We had a fabulous day. Our last stop was an ice cream shop. No kidding, I was so full that I declined an ice cream cone. I definitely will organize other Local Roots Food Tours with my friends and/or visitors to this area.

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!

It is an amazing tour. The history is interesting, the food and wine are wonderful and the tour was small enough, 10 people, to have a great time meeting the other people on the tour.

My favorite time to visit the foothills is the season of fall. It's worth the trip to Nevada City just to see the beautiful colors of the trees changing. We usually do a dinner or a play and always have a good time in Nevada City.
This year we wanted to try something different so I did some Google searches and found Local Roots Food Tours. The tour was a blast! A walking tour with tastings at seven local eateries. The tour started at the National Hotel and ended in a cave at the Stonehouse restaurant. Our guide told fantastic gold rush history stories as we walked through town. The Nevada City vibe is amazing and the tour is a fun way to feel the spirit of the gold rush. I highly recommend this tour.

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!!

We took the Murphys Food tour with Shelby. This was absolutely the best tour we have ever had. Shelby gave us a detailed history of the town as we walked, as well as tibits of information as we sampled a variety of items from 3 restaurants, a bakery, a candy store, an olive oil company and 2 wineries. We cannot recommend this tour enough! We will definitely be returning with our grown children
All four of us loved the tour. we didn't know what to expect, and it far exceeded what we could have imagined, thanks to lisa, tour guide and business owner. the food sampled was outstanding even for our picky eater, and all restaurant hosts were over-the-top hospitable. definitely a wonderful time was had by all...highly recommended!

Another fantastic Local Roots Food tour! This mid-town Sacramento tour was awesome! Lisa had amazing historical facts to share and the sites were fascinating, from Sutter's Fort history and information about his tragic demise, to haunted old cemetery sites, to beautiful stained-glass churches, and Fab Forties mansion homes! Lisa's great rapport with the chefs at the chosen establishments was noticeable, and they welcomed us warmly and were so willing to share their time and knowledge and talents through their beautiful, delicious foods! CoffeeWorks was amazing, too, and we learned so much about the choices of coffees and roasting of beans, and the scones there, to die for! Enjoyable longer walk than the other tours, but well worth it! Go, Lisa! Looking forward to the newest tour to open up in Murphy!

My friends and I absolutely LOVED the Nevada City Local Roots Food Tour! Our guide Eric was superb! His good-nature and pleasant, easy-going manner made the tour so wonderful! He was easy to talk to, easy to ask questions of, and kind and patient and knowledgeable. Our food tour stops were excellent, with a wide array of great foods and beverages, as well as the historical tour parts which was all around us as we walked the lovely streets of historic Nevada City. Best ever parking available, meters were incredibly cheap! Definitely plan on minimum 4 hour tour with shopping time, which could cost you only 50 cents (bring quarters!) for parking! Amazing overall great experience! :) Thank you for the best day ever!

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!

Fabulous Tour. Food was excellent, guide was informative and very friendly. I loved the casual tone-- and yet at the same time we met restaurant owners and chefs. The walk itself was easy.I plan to go again and have talked about it to my friends.

We went on the Local Roots Food Tour yesterday, and had a great time. We have lived in the foothills for over 20 years, and go down to Sacramento, quite often. Lisa introduced us to various local food establishments, where we sampled an awesome variety of foods and drink.
We were surprised to find these wonderful spots, just a couple... of blocks from the Convention Center. Lisa's interesting tidbits about the area, along with the opportunity to meet the shop owners, made for a fun afternoon. We highly recommend it.
