My husband and I took the Food Tour today, 9/26, and were thoroughly impressed,not to mention stuffed! Tonya and Sandy were great, the food and drinks were delicious and plentiful, and we learned alot about Murphys and the food. All the owners were so gracious and knowledgeable.

My husband had a g-r-e-a-t idea for my birthday when he arranged for him, our foodie daughter and I to take part in this very fun and informative food tour. WOW! Bethany, our guide, is smart, adorable, funny and has great people skills as well, so we were sorry to wave her goodbye when the walk was over--she left us leaning over our delicious apple tarts with creme anglaise in a stupor! We all had different 'favorites', but we all agreed that your little company is just what our city needs! I love, love LOVE eating out, and was so surprised to find that I was only familiar with 1 of the places we visited on the tour! And we will be back to all of them, at one time or another. Can't wait to hear news of your expansion!

Just finished the Local Roots Sacrament 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 knowledgable, funny and very attentive to our groups needs. We will definitely be returning to some of the places we discovered on this tour.

This was such a great time and worth
every penny. Lisa our tour guide was very warm and informative. The restaurants were great and we would have probably not wandered in unless they were recommended. I hope this gets extended to include other neighborhoods as I would love to explore new eating establishments. This would be a great date for any couple looking for a fun time.

Our Women\'s Travel group M.O.B. short for Marvelous Old Broads had the privilege of enjoying the Local Roots Food and Wine Tour in Murphy\'s California. Our trained culinary concierge and tour guide (Laura) was fabulous. This incredible young woman shared humorous as well as factual stories of Murphy\'s past citizens as we walk to each of the eight one of a kind eateries and artisan shops. Our visits were unique, and the store keepers welcomed us with open arms. I would recommend this tour and visit to Murphy\'s CA. to anyone who would like to experience a bit of the 1800\'s history, Calaveras wines, Chocolates, Spices, Olive Oils, Bakery, Eateries, and don\'t forget the stories. You won\'t be disappointed. There is something to do for every age. We all had a great time. Thank you Laura!!!

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!

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?

I purchased this walking food tour for my mother on her birthday. She couldn’t stop raving about how much fun and wonderful it was! She loved the food wants to go back and she loved the tour guide who was very knowledgeable. She said that the food had so many wonderful flavors. They even got to see the mayor walking down K Street. Highly recommend for anyone that enjoys delicious food and has a aspiration for K Street History!

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.
— Wencke Roed, Sacramento
This was a great food tour! We had so much fun, and learned a lot about Sacramento at the same time. Growing up in Sac, I didn't expect to learn as much as I did on the tour. Yummy food, I will be back to the sugar and spice bakery soon! yum yum.

"There's food, history and walking – just roll it up into a package and tie a big bow around it."
— Susan Drack, Natomas, California
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!!

We were delighted with our food tour today, and our guide Nate was great. Fun and personable. It was amazing to meet the actual chefs of some of the restaurants and have
them describe the dishes they made just for us. We also enjoyed the bits of history about some of the buildings we pasted on our walk from one restaurant to another. It was a great tour for tourist or locals like us. We highly recommend it, and will be back ourselves.

The farm tour was fantastic! We spent the morning at a few farms that clearly loved to share their passion for what they do every day. Every farmer greeted us with warmth and enthusiasm from start to finish.Our favorite farm was Natural Trading in Newcastle. We were just blown away by this operation. We talked about it all the way home and we keep telling our friends about it. This tour is a awakening for the commitment to sustainable farming, and all that it takes to make that happen. I think about that now every time I eat. Thanks Local Roots for this incredible experience!

The Local Roots Food Tour was phenomenal. Bethany met us outside of Cafe Bernardo. She talked to our small group of five about the Sacramento Food Culture. Inside of Cafe Bernardo, we were pleased to meet Chef Shannan Berg. She was very informative and spent quite a bit of time introducing us to organic foods and cooking information. She even took the time to offer us her phone number if we need to ask questions in the future. At that restaurant four of the food tour guests were served Amaretto French Toast. Because I have a tree nut allergy, she was courteous to serve me Huevos Rancheros. The portion sizes were large for both. The Huevos Rancheros were better than any that I have ever tasted. After this we continued to learn some local history of the area and came to Centro. At Centro we were greeted with Chips and Salsa Verde. A large glass container filled with fruit and liquid caught my eye. This was one of their special fruit infused tequilas which we were lucky to sample along with a Margarita. Here we also received a most delicious Carnitas Taco along with Black beans and rice. Every portion on this dish was generous and delicious. Next we walked and talked along to a delicious ice creamery and enjoyed Gunther's Ice Cream. Loved the Orange Chocolate Chip. We went on to a restaurant called Formoli's and were grateful for the smaller appetizers of Eggplant Portabello Napoleon and Stuffed Mushrooms with Balsamic Glaze. We ended our tour with an education in coffee and a tasting of that from Coffee Works. If you take this tour do not eat breakfast and be prepared to leave full. Bethany was amazing! I highly recommend this experience
