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.

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.

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. We had such a good time with our tour guides Sierra and Millie, who made history of the area come to life. It was slow paced as we made 5 stops... More

A walking tour in Murphy's led by Tanya was delightful! Tanya had a story to share at every stop. Three and half hours of sipping beer and wine as well as eating tasty food at Alchemy, Murphy's Hotel and DOKE. Sushi in the park paired with wine from Hovey's tasting room was a surprising treat. Marisolio Tasting Bar included balsamic... More

I've lived in Sacramento for 17 years and still learned a great deal about the city, it's art and it's culinary world on this tour. Our guide, Cearra was personable, knowledgeable and very informative about the stops on our tour as well as some of her other personal favorite (and not so favorite) local restaurants. I'm glad we walked a... More
