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.

We had a great time on our food tour! Ashley, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the restaurants we visited, as well as the local history on our walk. We enjoyed interacting with the chef/representative of every place we stopped and learned something from each. We would highly recommend this walking tour and look forward to attending one of the other tours Local Roots offers soon!

We had a great time on this tour. Joelle was a perfect hostess and not only took us to some amazing resataurants (ones you wouldn't know where there) but she also indulged us in some interesting Sacramento history. It was a great time. I would definitely do it again.

My friend purchased a groupon for the Origins of Food and Cultural Tour of Sacramento. We are both fairly new to the area and were excited to learn some of the history of our new home town. Ashley, was very well-versed in the area's history and as excited as were to taste foods and interact with chefs. We could not have asked for a better guide for our little group. She made us feel like she was showing off the city to her family, and ending up spending an additional 2 hours past the tour time with us. I could not recommend this activity enough. We were fortunate enough to have had the most perfect weather and welcoming host for our tour. Thank you!

My husband and I went on our first food tour! It was amazing!! Our tour guide,,Ashley, was so delightful and well informed. Each restaurant's chef came out and talked to us about what was special about their restaurant and explained the food that they were going to serve us. What better way to spend a crisp, winter day in Sacramento with a great tour guide, amazing food, and a chance to get in a little bit of walking at the same time. This will be the first of many food tours that we will be taking from Local Roots Food Tours. Way to go, Ashley! We learned so much from you! Hope we can get you for a guide again!!

Out of all the "touristry" trips and tours we did while in Sacramento, this was by far our favorite. We were fortunate to have the tour guide all to ourselves, and walked through some of the hidden gems and neighborhoods of Sacramento, seeing and hearing the history of many beautiful homes and buildings, as well as sampling culinary delights in some great restaurants. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the city.
