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 were delighted with our food tour today, and our guide Nate was great. Fun and
personable. It was amazing to meet the actual chefs of some of the restaurants and have
them describe the dishes they made just for us. We also enjoyed the bits of history about
some of the buildings we pasted on our walk from one restaurant to another.
It was a great tour for tourist or locals like us. We highly recommend it, and will be back
ourselves.

We would love to have you back on any of our tours. It's so wonderful to hear you enjoyed our City of Trees Food and Cultural Walking tour with Nate. We too believe its a perfect way to spend an afternoon: weaving through the beautiful shade trees, learning historical facts about Sacramento and eating along the way. What gets better than that? Thank you so much for your review and we look forward to seeing you in the future!

We just went on one of the walking tours of Sacramento, by Local Roots Food Tours. We took the Origins of Sacramento Food & History Tour, which took us around a good portion of downtown Sac. It was great fun touring the many eateries and learning about the food industry in and around Sacramento. With 5 stops and incredible food samples at each stop, along with informative food knowledge, and humorous stories from Ashley, our guide it was truly a very unique and enjoyable way to spend the day.

I look for walking tours every time I go on vacation. I decided to go on vacation here at home and am glad I did. Ashley was charming and informative. I enjoyed listening to the chefs talk about their food and what makes their restaurant special. The food was excellent and the portions were much bigger than I expected. Thanks for a great tour!

Just finished the Local Roots Sacrament food tour and loved it. Having the chefs come out and tell us what is unique about their restaurant and take questions was a great perk. The food was wonderful and portions pleasantly more then expected...we were quite full at the end. Ashley, our tour guide was knowledgable, funny and very attentive to our groups needs. We will definitely be returning to some of the places we discovered on this tour.

Today was my first experience of going on a walking food tour of the city--excellent and delicious!! Our guide, Nate, was personable and knowledgeable, and had excellent rapport with the chefs at each stop.
I have lived in the Sacramento area for more than 25 years, and was delighted to discover new "finds" of attractions as well as restaurants.

We are thrilled reading you had a great time on our City of Trees Food Tour - we try to find great food and history stops even for the locals to enjoy and wonder why they had never experienced that in their own city already. So happy to hear we met your expectations with this being your first walking food tour experience. We hope you and your friends will join us on another one of our culinary tours in the near future. Thanks for taking the time to submit your review - we greatly appreciate it!
