You might be thinking this would be a great activity for you and your girlfriends or book club or even your family gathering.  We do offer private tours 6 days a week and with a little planning, we know we can make your day extra special and fulfilling to say the least.  What about a food tour challenge tour for your office team or a food scavenger hunt for your foodie cooking group?  For more details on our private tours and what requirements we have click here:  PRIVATE TOURS

We say that food and dining are experiential because we touch all five senses. But the great food is just the start.  Our walking food tours use great food as an opportunity to connect with other people on the tour, the diverse restaurant chefs and shop owners, the city we visit, and even the local farmers who provide the ingredients.  And before you can say ‘quatro formaggia’, guess what?  You’re helping to strengthen our community.  Create a moment, a destination and a memory within your hectic life, where for three in a half hours you will be transported on a journey of food, fun and discovery, feeling refreshed and energized.  Well-fed, too!

Would you like to see where California’s delicious fresh fruit, produce, nuts, and wine come from?  Want to know how vineyards can tell when it’s time to pick their grapes or how to grow the best tomatoes?  Wouldn’t you like to see California olives on the tree, soaking up the sunshine?  We are so fortunate to live in the “Farm to Fork Capital of America”.  Now is time to jump on board the Local Roots Food Tours Culinary Passport bus and explore the cornucopia of agriculture.  Our Sierra Foothill Farm & Wine Tour is being offered to the public, Saturday’s and Sunday’s tours beginning the 1st weekend of December.

What Folks are Saying!

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!
