Completely outdid my expectations. My wife and I had done a walking/eating tour in San Francisco and loved it - but this was a HUGE step above. Great tour guide, very fun and knowledgable. Great restaurants with great tastes and delicious food. Great group of people to talk with on the tour as well. All in all, a great time. Would totally recommend it!

This was the 2nd Walking Food Tour for my wife and I. In a word "AWESOME!" We got a real personal experience due to being the only two who scheduled. Many of the restaurant chefs/managers we met with were more than willing to discuss and share their passion with us. Our tour guide (Bethany) made us feel as if we were old friends. Friendly, personable, and understanding. Bethany made the experience feel as if 4hrs was too short. We'll continue to tell all our friends/family about our wonderful and delicious experiences on these tours. Soon they will ALL be joining us!

We went on a Local Roots Food Tour in Nevada City, in "Forty-Niner" territory.Eric was a great guide, giving us so much history about the gold rush days and the people of that era. We stopped at eight different food and drink establishments, and we were stuffed by the end of the tour. We did wine tasting, coffee tasting, had delicious food tastings, and dessert too!!! The walk was very easy, as we didn't walk very far before we reached another restaurant. It was about a mile and a half overall. We would highly recommend this delicious and very historical tour.

Today we took the food and history Sacramento tour. Ashley was a great tour guide and the food was excellent. I learned so much today about Sacramento even though I have been in the area for over five years! I would recommend this to anyone.

The Gourmet on K Culinary tour was a wonderful experiece; such fun, and so delicious! My friends and I really enjoyed our K Street tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the past and the updates to K Street and had a great raport with the owners/chefs of the various places we visited. She has a great personality and answered our questions. She didn't hurry us through things as we asked questions of the chefs/owners and we enjoyed her company. We are looking forward to more of your tours!

My husband and I went on one of your tours when we were in Sacramento for business meetings. We had a really good time. Our hostess/tour guide Bethany was great, she was very informative and interesting.
She obviously knew a lot about the restaurants that she took us to. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

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 wife and I went on our second Local Roots Food Tour and we just love the food tour concept. There is no better way to learn about the restaurants and history of Sacramento. Our guide made it fun and she was very knowledgeable. We would never be able to take time to visit so many hot spots on our own without the direction and insight by our tour planner. Don’t plan on a big dinner the night of the tour. I was a little worried the tastings would not be enough for those of us with big appetites, but the amount of food was perfect. After meeting the restaurant owners, chefs and staff that create the delicious food, you will want to go back for more.

I can't wait to bring someone on this tour! You can't beat the combination of learning some really interesting history while eating your way through one of the cutest darn towns in the foothills. And, though the pace could never be considered fast enough to call it more than a stroll, I did get quite a few steps on my pedometer. The food was delicious and the reception at each of the stops made us feel like VIP's. Our guide, Shelby was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. Now for the hard part. Which place do I go back to first?

My friend and I enjoyed the charming and informative guide Nate as he led us around mid-town Sacramento on a 3.5 hour guided food and history tour,which features such delicacies as french toast from Cafe Bernardo to pulled pork carnitas and margaritas from Centro to ice cream at La Bombe, portobella mushroom bites stuffed with asiago cheese at Formolis and iced coffee from the Coffee Works.. At each of the restaurants we visited, we talked with the chef or manager about the local sourcing of the food, about their food philosophy, and their food passions. As foodies ourselves, it was like meeting new "old friends". The downside was a city temperature of over 90 degrees but the walk was still fun and we didn't feel pressure to "hurry up"; Nate was a delightful guide and clearly enjoys his job. Since the two of us (small group!) are local Sacramentans in our golden years, we felt we knew a lot of history of the area, but Nate was able to tell us stories which we didn't know about and which enriched our tour immensely. I would recommend this tour to anyone who likes food, likes to walk, likes to learn about history, and who likes to have fun!

My daughter (17) and I took this food tour with Lisa as our guide and had a wonderful time! The tour exceeded our expectations by far. The walk was fun, the history interesting, and the food amazing! I've lived in Auburn for 9 years and this was the first time I felt like I really got a "taste" of the area. Lisa was a perfect tour guide... knowledgeable and alot of fun. I would highly recommend this tour, for locals and tourists!

Lisa escorted my party on the Origins of Sacramento Tour to five wonderful local restaurants, meeting key members of each place -- chef, manager, owner. We really enjoyed her knowledge and humor as she also shared her knowledge to really long-term residents of Sacramento. The food sampling is terrific and we are already planning a local event around this tour.

My wife and I took another Local Roots Tour. This time we took the one along K Street, which is the historic and now resurgent downtown main street of Sacramento. Ashley was our guide and took us to six restaurants, with samples of the foods and sometimes drinks at each one. The restaurants were a nice hotel restaurant, a wine-tasting bar -- with three wines to taste with cheeses, a wonderful Mexican place, a pastry store, an artistic bar/restaurant and finished with a dessert at an upscale sandwich and coffee place. All were good and the total volume of food was plenty. Ashley also gave us a historic review of K Street, including historic photos and drawings. We went in April, and the weather was great, but since the distances were not great and most of the time was indoors, this walking tour would be fine even if the weather wasn't wonderful.
— Jay N., Davis, CA
Lisa did an excellent job researching the local restaurants and homes in the area for the downtown Sacramento food tour. She is funny and kept everyone interested the entire time. It was a nice way to find great places to eat, get to know the area (I'm originally from southern CA) and get some exercise all at the same time.
