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

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...
