Our guide, Tonja, was fantastic! She has lived in the local area for 25 years and knows everyone. Every place we visited she had a personal connection with the hosts and we were treated accordingly. Her local knowledge led to interesting tidbits and her enthusiasm for the area was reflected in her demeanor and presentation. She is truly an outstanding... More

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon! We were expertly guided around some of Midtown's hidden treasures by Leslie, our very enthusiastic, charming and capable guide. We tasted some great nibbles and beverages and learned about Sacramento's developing art/graffiti scene. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk, talk and tasting tour. The company was great and we had a bonus of... More

As a veteran of food tours, I was excited to find a food tour in Sacramento. The guide was really knowledgeable about the area. We were introduced to some really great restaurants in the J street area and the samples had ample proportions. The price for the tour was very reasonable. I would definitely take a tour from this company... More

The Murphys Food Tour on 9/26 was great! Lots of good food and drinks, a lot of history, the tour guides Tonya and Sandy were knowledgeable and entertaining, and the vendors were gracious and informative. All on all a wonderful time.

My husband and I were playing tourists in Sacramento before he attended a business meeting. We love to travel and have found one of the best ways to get a "taste" of local cultural is to embark on walking tours of the cities we visit. If there is food involved, all the better! We took the Origins of Sacramento Food... More

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
