What Folks are Saying!

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.
