Description: Local Roots Food Tours offers food and farm adventures throughout...
Local Roots Food Tours offers food and farm adventures throughout Sacramento and its beautiful valley region. We offer 3 different walking food and cultural tours in Sacramento. Going beyond the big city - our other walking food tour can be found in picturesque Murphys,CA. Murphys Food & Wine Tour explores the Queen of the Sierra - a wonderful mining town with 8 delicious stops including food and wine. Ranked #1 Tour in Sacramento by Trip Advisor. Each tour offers a large variety of tastings (10+), while visiting 6-10 different specialty food shops, artisans, and neighborhood restaurants. All of our tours are offered year-round, last between 3.5 to 4 hours and range between $42 - $70, depending on the tour. The tours focus on F.L.O.S.S. (fresh, local, organic, seasonal, and sustainable) foods and beverages. Enough food is served on each tour that most guests consider it a meal. Savor, learn, explore and connect to some amazing communities and their culinary dishes.

Can't say enough great things about this tour! We had Sierra and Millie as our guides. They were knowledgeable, friendly, and showed us a great time. We were amazed with not only the quality of food, but the amount we got at each place. We will definitely be back to try out one of their other tours!

As 'foodies' from Australia we decided the best way to see Sacramento was to do the highly recommended Local roots food tour. Ciarra met us as planned at 1.30pm and the whole afternoon was spent learning about the lovely city of Sacramento and enjoying endless tapas and tasting plates along the way. All the restaurants were well chosen for their... More

We took the morning tour, started at 10:30. This was our first food tour and we not only enjoyed the restaurants and talking with the chefs, but the sights were interesting too. Millie was our guide and she did a fantastic job. I have already recommended the tour to several local friends.

Tour started around 2:00 pm and finished up a bit after 5:00pm. It included stops at several eateries, coffee shops, wine tasting and dessert shops, plus walking around several blocks in Mid-city Sacramento and viewing the local artist paintings on buildings and alleyways. Tour guide Sierra was excellent, engaging, and informative!!

Thank you for leaving your positive feedback on our Urban Art, Food & Libations Walking Tour. When our tour guides are guiding a large group it is difficult to ensure the tour doesn't extend longer than the 3.5 hours slated. Our tour guides want to live up to that time commitment so we are sorry if you felt she was... More

Our guide started the tour with some background information on the company and then we were off. At each of the stops, the food was excellent in flavor and nicely presented. We learned a little about the beginnings of each restaurant. We also had several stops that included alcoholic beverages. Again delicious. Our tour included stops at various murals around... More

Four of us used a food tour to see a part of Sacramento we weren't familiar with. We selected the Origins one that explored the district near Sutter's Mill.
