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.

My friend purchased tickets for the Origins of Food and Cultural Tour of Sacramento. We are both fairly new to the area and were excited to learn some of the history of our new home town. Ashley, was very well-versed in the area's history and as excited as were to taste foods and interact with chefs. We could not have asked for a better guide for our little group. She made us feel like she was showing off the city to her family, and ending up spending an additional 2 hours past the tour time with us. I could not recommend this activity enough. We were fortunate enough to have had the most perfect weather and welcoming host for our tour. Thank you!

Gourmet on K is an incredible event, tons of historical information, not to mention the insanely great food!(delicious!) Be sure to show up with an empty stomach and a voracious appetite because you will be eating a lot of fantastic food! Can't wait to go on the other tours they offer!

This was our second food tour with Local Roots.You always wonder/worry, are my expectations too high, will the second be as good as the first. Well, not to worry - Joelle, you were wonderful, thank you for an inspiring few hours absorbing the history and food of this interesting city. While my sister and I are not "foodies", these tours are a delight and we intend on including them in our travels. We still want to do the gold-mining town tour with you, and definitely plan to visit Bangkok at 12 on our next visit for that incredible avocado curry. Thanks for adding so much to our Sacramento trip, we can't recommend you enough.

This tour was so much fun. I felt like I was on a Travel Channel Food show. Lots of wonderful food and drink. The historical and educational aspect was nice also. Our tour guide Bethany was delightful. I'm planning on doing their other tours as well. Do not eat before you go. This isn't just a taste of Sacramento, it's a full belly of food, more than I needed to eat :)

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 :)

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!

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.

Fun and educational. A nice Saturday outing. Some of the restaurants are old favorites and others are soon to be new favorites.
Owner Lisa Armstrong spent a lot of time researching Sacramento history. She has big plans for this business. I know I am going to watch them grow!

Joelle is the perfect guide for the Origins of Sacramento. She is personable, informative and obviously loves her work. Her drama background is evident in her speech and actions and adds to the entertainment value of the tour.
My guest and I enjoyed all the stops.
I will definitely do the downtown tour in the future and tell all my friends about this fun adventure in Sacramento.

We had been in Sacramento a few days before our scheduled tour so I was a little worried that we might have already explored the city too much and this wouldn’t be new-- boy was I wrong. The tour was a mix of so many types of restaurants & foods and I loved everything. The authentic Mexican restaurant was absolutely delicious. The chefs all came out to talk to us and answer questions like we were VIPs. I learned more from this tour than I ever expected and really felt an appreciation for the city when this was over. Next time we are in the area, we are going on their Nevada City tour because I was completely impressed by Local Roots and our tour guide Bethany. She also gave us fabulous ideas for the remainder of our visit and all were spot-on. This was a highlight of our trip for sure!

Definitely recommend this tour. A great combo of food, history, and nice people.
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!!

I didn't quite know what to expect of this food walking tour, but I had an excellent time. We learned some great history about Sacramento, had DELICIOUS (fresh, sustainable & local) food from some of the best restaurants in town, and had a wonderful tour guide. Would recommend this to both locals and tourists.
