Our walking tour was very enjoyable. Bethany, our tour guide, was an excellent host. Bethany shared interesting historical and architectural information was we walked through neighbors. Sampling at six different establishments was a treat. My favorite stop was Sampino's Towne Foods. I’ll be going back to several of the restaurants for sure!

This tour was much more than expected. Wonderful tour guide (Bethany) who gave fun facts, food facts and historical information, all with a big smile and a pleasing personality. Food was varied & tasty and all the tour participants completed the tour with very full tummies!

I went with 5 of my friends, and each of us thought everything about the tour was great! Our wonderful guide Lisa, the restaurants she choose for us with their delicious and varied food samples, the buildings and history we heard about, the churches we entered, the block of mansions...all of it...we felt we were traveling and seeing our hometown through fresh eyes! Would highly recommend to anyone. oh, and a special thumbs up to Shannon at Cafe Bernardo for her interesting and entertaining "talk" ! What a wonderful restaurant in so many ways!

We had a wonderful time with Eric yesterday. Our 3 hr tour took about 5 hrs because we were having such a good time & did not want to leave the NEVADA CITY WINERY. Eric was full of interesting facts and fun to be with. The food was wonderful -- especially LEFTY\'S and ELEVENSIES CREPES AND OF COURSE, NEVADA CITY CHOCOLATE SHOPPE. Hope to do Lisa\'s tours in Sac. soon!!!

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!!

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 have been on several food tours in So. Ca. so was eager to try this one while on vacation. This was by far the best! Eric was a great guide, very relaxed but full of information. The restaurants provided plenty of food of excellent quality and the owners all were thrilled to describe their culinary talents with us. This was a bargain for 4 hours of fun! You must do this whenever you are near Nevada City!

I look for walking tours every time I go on vacation. I decided to go on vacation here at home and am glad I did. Ashley was charming and informative. I enjoyed listening to the chefs talk about their food and what makes their restaurant special. The food was excellent and the portions were much bigger than I expected. Thanks for a great tour!

A nice walking tour of downtown Sacramento that included a nice bit of history mingled with wonderful food at the great food stops that Lisa has chosen for this tour. All of the food establishments were great and it was a real treat to get to meet with some of the owners. Totally delightful day and company. Looking forward to the other tours that Lisa is organizing for the future. I definitely recommend this to anyone who likes to walk, eat, or learn a little history.

This was my first time on a food tour and it will definitely not be my last.
Lisa, our tour guide and owner of Local Roots was knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. Our tour had 14 people on it and it was perfect. Each restaurant was wonderful and the food was delicious. Lisa had a great grasp on the history of Sacramento and the walking was not tedious in the least bit. Great exercise, wonderful food and a new understanding of Sacramento! Definitely will try food tours at each new city I travel to! Lisa mentioned new tours throughout Sacramento and surrounding areas, so I will be back to try new ones! I would definitely recommend this tour to friends and family traveling to Sacramento!

We recently did the History of Sacramento and Food Tour with Lesley, and had a great time! We live in Sacramento, and this was a great way to learn about restaurants that we had never tried before. We were extremely satisfied with the amount of food that was shared on this tour, much bigger portions that on other food tours we have done in other cities. We were lucky enough to be the only 2 people on the tour, and I never expected they would run a tour with just 2 people, so hat is a real plus. It was like having a private tour. Price is very reasonable, and you will not go wrong trying one of the tours by this company. Thanks Lesley, you were awesome!

Just finished the Local Roots Sacramento food tour and loved it. Having the chefs come out and tell us what is unique about their restaurant and take questions was a great perk. The food was wonderful and portions pleasantly more then expected...we were quite full at the end. Ashley, our tour guide was knowledgeable, funny and very attentive to our groups needs. We will definitely be returning to some of the places we discovered on this tour.

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.
