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!

My friend Barbara and I went last Friday on the Midtown tour. We had already been on the City of Trees tour so we knew it would be great. We were the only ones so it was even better. The food was wonderful and of course Lisa did a great job on the history of the area. Looking forward to taking the tour in Nevada City, but will do that in the spring.

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.

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?

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.

This was my second tour with Local Roots Food Tours and it was fabulous! This time, I took my sister and her husband for his birthday. Food... Fun... Family... a perfect way to celebrate!! The tour "Origins of Sacramento" began in mid-town at Cafe Bernarndo's where we were treated to Chef Shannan's amazing Amaretto French Toast... did I say AMAZING?? What a treat! From there each stop was equally as amazing. I loved that the food stops were separated with some walking. Our tour guide Lisa, was fun, energetic and very knowledgeable about Sacramento's history. From Sutter's Fort to the beautiful homes to the incredible churches - the walking tour was filled with historical facts and magnificent views. The selection of food stops was perfect. The foods we sampled (huge sample sizes) were served immediately as we arrived, no waiting. I loved the variety of foods... especially the desserts, cupcakes and gelato!!
I would highly recommend this tour, for out of towners and well as locals. It's a wonderful way to spend a few hours... a real treat!!

I loved, loved, loved this. Our guide Bethany was wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed all the historical facts about some of the beautiful buildings and homes. I can't say enough about how great this was. The establishments we visited were top notch. I especially enjoyed being able to talk to the owners and people behind the scenes. What a great way to see the city. I can't stop recommending it to everyone around me.

Very informative. Fun. Food was wonderful. Now have new places to go that I didn't even know existed. Would (and have already) recommend to anyone. Would like more tours like this.

The Best of Murphys, CA in one fulfilling three hour tour!
OK, everyone is hearing about how wonderful the little town of Murphys is, but how in the heck can you get the whole experience? Well, with these people. I went on this tour today and I got a wine tour, a food tour and a history tour all in one. Every place we went to (9 total) was very informative about their foods, wines, and/or wares. Though the menus will change I feel I should say something about each and every place they were all THAT good. but instead I'll lastly mention the gal that operates the tour. Her name is Shelby, and wow, what a guide she is. I know this tour just started up, but she must have done this in another life because she knew so much about the town, it's history, the people living there, the businesses and the wine. Delicious food, great wine and awesome history of the town. Oh a few steps here and there but really easy no hills to climb.

The Sacramento "City of Trees Food Tour" is the best I have been on. We walked the back streets and I learned so much about the history of many buildings and Sacramento itself. We tasted at 7 restaurants. The tastings were filling and the quality of the food was great. The menu was diversified. Appetizers, wine, salad, soup, deserts, smoothies, and fresh pasta. I would highly recommend this tour.

This is an absolutely unique experience for Sacramento! All in our group loved sampling the different foods from a variety of restaurants, as well as the great tour of the town that Lisa gave. Don't miss it!
— Mickey, Rocklin, CA
All I can say is WOW! The heat was (almost) forgotten as we walked city streets, were treated to delish food, inside information about the restaurants, and local history. I recommend this tour to anyone--locals and tourists alike--as it's a great way to learn about Sacramento. And not to be forgotten was our guide, Nate. They don't come any better. I will definitely go on some of the other tours.

My 7 sisters and I were part of City of Trees Food tour this past weekend. We totally enjoyed Nate as our guide through Sacramento\'s history and culinary delights. I was impressed with the fact that our various dietary needs were taken into consideration. The weather was perfect! We so lucked out! Can\'t wait to do it again .
