I took my friend on this tour for her birthday present. Two days before we were supposed to go she was given a very restrictive diet from her doctor (gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, egg free and no peanuts). I contacted the tour in a panic and they immediately responded that they would contact their vendors and do their... More

Great opportunity to discover hidden gems related to food, and the history was an added bonus. Our food concierge was knowledgeable and sensitive to her guests. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

Lisa is wondeful! She knows the Sierra Foothills and the farms to visit. We were treated like royalty and got to experience citrus olive oil and aged balsamic tasting, a beautiful lavender farm, lunch, wine tasting and the best peaches/nectarines I could imagine -- right off the tree. Lisa, our tour guide, and the farmers filled us in on the... More

What a fantastic way to spend an afternoon! Midtown is so exciting and even more so when you ad food, libations and amazing graffiti art. Meandering through the alleys you don't see in a car with like minded people and being totally engaged by a guide who is refreshingly natural and obviously knows her stuff. We can't wait to try...

This was our second tour with this group and both times we had the same 2 guides. They are great, the tour is great and I wish you had more available. Next we will do the East Sac food tour and the Murphy's tour. It is a great thing to do with out of town company!

Hubby and I went on the Origins of Sacramento Food & History Walking Tour on a beautiful Saturday morning and were so impressed with our tour guide Leslie. She was so cheerful, informative and knowledgeable about the food, restaurants, local history (even a few ghost stories and gossip) that we're eager to go on another tour as soon as possible....

We've been to Murphys many times when we visit Angels Camp and go wine tasting. This time we wanted to do something different and we found the best "something!" Thanks to our very knowledgeable and terrific guide, Tonja, we experienced Murphys in such a fun way. Every place we we visited, we were treated to wonderful treats of food (not... More

While visiting Sacramento from North Carolina, we took the tour "Origins of Sacramento". It was fantastic. We loved learning about the local history and enjoyed all the wonderful food and restaurants. It was December, and everything was decorated for the holiday. We truly enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide, Leslie was very knowledgeable, friendly, funny and made it all the more... More

I love taking a walking tour when I come to a city for the first time. We went back to a many of the places on the tour. The Root Tour was a about local produce. We visited Paragary's cafe Bernardo Cafe, and their bakery, but my favorite was Coffee Works on Folsum! Definitely a must to get a quick... More
