A group of 7 women took a Downtown tour last Saturday with Nicole. The tour was fascinating and fun..and delicious. Nicole was excellent and added even more to the event. I highly recommend this tour and Nicole!

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.

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!

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!!

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!!

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.

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!

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.

I definitely recommend this tour. It offers a nice day with great food, friendly people, and a slice of history. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

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!!!

There was so much delicious food! The tour included 5 restaurants. The portions were much larger than just a "tasting". We were full by the third restaurant but the food was so good it was easy to keep eating. It helped to have the short walk between restaurants. Bethany was terrific. Very entertaining and informative. The chefs who spoke with us were engaging and offered interesting insights. I only wish we were staying in Sacramento longer. I would have liked to go back to some of the restaurants for dinner. If you're in Sacramento take this tour right away. You'll discover great places to eat for the rest of your stay.

What a delightful experience! Great fun, food, and flavorful new friendships. Ashley was the bomb-diggity with insightful historical facts meshed with humor and professionalism. Perfect weather, a nice stroll along the "K" and some tasty treats that we are excited to go back and indulge in again. I Highly recommend this tour!!

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!

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.
