Food and History Walking Tours in Sacramento

By Dawnie February 17, 2012

Northern California is blessed with so many great restaurants and shops, it can be confusing to know where to start.  Our tours are a great way to get acquainted with the local food scene, and a great activity for visitors, families, and co-workers alike.  We harness the power of great food to unite people, no matter their race or creed.  Spend three hours learning and tasting, and you’re sure to come away a bit more enlightened than you already were.  Book some time for you or your group and take a well-rounded sample of some delicious foods, from iconic restaurants to the hidden gems — you’ll see what the buzz is about!

Local Roots Food Tours offers three tours; each distinctly different.  City of Trees Food Tasting and Cultural Walking Tour and our Origins of Sacramento Food and Cultural Walking Tour based in Sacramento, and venturing north of Sacramento; Gold Discovery Walking Food Tour of Nevada City takes place in the Sierra Nevada foothills, about 1 hour north of Sacramento.  Soon to launch (April 6th, 2012)  is our newest food tour; Murphys Food & Wine Tour in quaint historic town of Murphys in Calaveras County, about 1.5 hours south of Sacramento. Each tour offers a large variety of tastings while visiting an array of specialty food shops, artisans, and neighborhood restaurants.  Enough food is served to consider it a meal.
