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! :)

My friend and I took the City of Trees walking food and cultural tour. We sampled food from 5 eateries in downtown Sacramento that I had never heard of. The food was great and I will definitely go back. We also learned about the histoy of old Sacramento and saw some amazing old homes. Lisa was very knowledgable and entertaining. Im looking forward to more tours.

“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.

We took Lisa's food tour as part of a group offsite (later found out we were the fifth tour since the tour started) . We wanted to do something fun, but not exactly your typical team building event. Something low key, relaxed that had great food. We had a group of 9 and Lisa decided to close the tour date that we signed up for and we ended up with a private food tour! The tour was very educational and we learned so much about Sacramento. We visited many local restaurants and the chefs would stop by to greet and welcome us. I think the website said the tour was between 2-3 hours for a 2.5 mile tour, but our tour ended up being 3+ hours. Lisa did not rush us from location to location (6 spots total), but moved us along when she sensed things were hitting a low point or when we were itching for more food. She definitely sets a casual and relaxing atmosphere for us as we strolled through the various historical parts of downtown Sacramento. Overall, a wonderful experience with delicious foods!

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!

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.

This tour completely exceeded my expectations! Lawrence was a fantastic guide and very fun as well as knowledgable. I've lived in sac for about 7 years now and thought I knew a little about the city. Boy was I wrong. This was not only a food tour but a bar hop and a history walk. It deserves 10 stars :)

I would highly recommend the Origins of Sacramento food tour, both to visitors as well as folks who live in Sacramento. We had a great time strolling the streets of midtown with the delightful Ashley as our guide, sampling delectable foods and learning some interesting facts and trivia about our town. We particularly enjoyed getting to talk to the chefs at the restaurants, learning about what it takes to source locally and aim for a farm-to-fork experience for their customers. The day was a perfect mix of wonderful food, a lovely walk through tree-lined streets, and a little education and history about the area.

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 were the only ones on the tour and had a wonderful 3.5 hr tour with our guide Leslie. She has so much personality, is very informative. The restaurants made us feel very special, answered lots of questions and gave us delicious samples of food. Really enjoyed all the architectural sites along the way and we often stopped as Leslie explained what we were seeing. The Fab 40 homes were great to see too. Highly recommend this tour and hope many others have the opportunity to have Leslie as well. Also come hungry as you will have many delightful food items to try. It was a very special day and thankfully perfect weather.

My mom and I went on the Sacramento walking tour today with Bethany, and it was simply outstanding! :) We loved all the food, especially the Italian dishes at Sampino's. Bethany was a pleasure to walk with, and we learned so many interesting facts about the city! We would certainly recommend this tour to anyone visiting in the area!

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!

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.
