Cheers to Lola! We did the Urban art/food/libations tour in Midtown and had a great time. We sampled a wide variety of food and drink while Lola guided us through some great urban art spots. Lola is funny, entertaining and very knowledgeable on the local art. This was a great way to spend the day.

This was a great tour! Everyone in the group had been to the Jeff Beck/ZZ Top concert the night before so we had good start on things to talk about. Our guide was so knowledgeable and entertaining. She obviously loves what she does - which is a lot - the tours, pours wine and sings. This is not a dieter's... More

This is the second Local Roots Food Tour I have done- some friends and I celebrated my birthday on the Gourmet on K tour. We learned some interesting things about sacramento and got to eat some delicious, local food by some very talented chefs. Our tour guide, Lola, was very engaging and personable, and seemed to really love what she... More

My husband and I took the food and wine tour in Murphy's, Ca. during our first anniversary vacation. Neither of us had every done a similar activity, so we didn't know what to expect. We had such a great day and it was really the highlight of our weekend! Our group was small, so we got a very intimate tour.... More

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....
