We recently took the Rooted Fork Foodie Tour of downtown Napa. With it being offseason our choices of tour dates was limited, and if you can I'd recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your Napa trip because you will discover lots of great places to eat, including several that you likely would not try on your own. The guide, Virginia, was excellent, very knowledgable about the area, and as a CIA grad, about food as well. Everyplace we tried was great, and shared a signature dish that highlighted their cuisine, and a drink. Most were "California style" dishes, so healthy. Being a Pescatarian was not a problem, and in only in one place was the substitute dish disappointing (it was the first time that restaurant was on the tour, so a learning experience for them). We started at Tarla, where we'd already eaten, but which had some delicious zucchini fritters and a Mediterranean cocktail. Yum! Some other highlights of the tour included Norman Rose (not a place that we would have chosen from the outside, but very nice and great sliders -- mine a fish slider), the brittles from Annettes Chocolates (wow!!) and the mushroom soup from The Kitchen Door in the Oxbow market. In addition to the tastings, we had a nice tour of downtown, some local history, and an afternoon of culinary delights. All was very well-paced and enough without being too much. I'd highly recommend this experience. One piece of constructive feedback -- while they were great communicators, the number of reminders, especially for gratuities, were a few too many. That could just be me though.

We heard about this tour by word of mouth and are so glad we took it. We loved visiting so many downtown Napa must go places. The food and paired drinks were all delicious. Our guide was so gracious and welcoming, we felt like locals enjoying the ambiance at each establishment. Loved it!!

I loved my experience with the Rooted Fork Foodie Tour. It was a group of 10 celebrating a friends 50th. The tour was fun and a great way to be introduced to the fine eateries that Napa has to offer. It is well worth the price of admission!

It was A LOT of tastings - but they were small and always paired with a cocktail. The booze factor we weren't aware of - so we were pretty toasted after the tasting had done two wine tastings before the tour. It's Tuesday of the following week and I'm still feeling it!
