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.

And we felt like we were making new friends all over town. This tour is carefully planned to give the visitor to Murphys a sampling of good wine, good food, interesting history and current goings on, as well as a chance to meet great people!

We take pride in our tour guides being local and connected to their neighborhoods where we guide out tours. We want our tour participants to walk away feeling like they just had a good friend show them all the great hidden gems, share some local history and fun facts about the area and your review was such a nice surprise...

My wife and I were fortunate to have a perfect weather day for our stroll around K St. The group met in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency on L Street. We thought the Poblano soup at Mayaheul's was delicious; We could have eaten many more of the petite toasted cheese and pear sandwiches at the Ambrosia cafe. I had... More

A walking food tour of the "Farm-To-Fork" capital of the USA seems like a good idea...and it was. Even though we live near Sacramento, we decided to try the food tour as we had taken one in Seattle, Portland, New York City and Prague. It was a good decision. We met our guide in downtown Sacramento. She took my wife... More

What a wonderful way to spend the day with friends, learning about the quaint little town of Murphys while experiencing some great food and wine. We had a great guide who provided lots of inside info about the town. Fun, fun, fun . . . a must-do!

6 of us were part of the midtown/East Sac historical and food tour. Cierra (probably not the right spelling) was our guide; very knowledgable, but equally important, understands HOW to "guide" a tour! Perhaps my favorite part was getting to go into a bakery that is not a retail bakery but provides lots of baked goods to about 15 restaurants... More
