Previous participant stated;   “WOW! A culinary delight mixed with a historical overview that would make a Hollywood screenwriter proud.”

The Origins of Sacramento Walking Food and Cultural Tour is our newest addition in Sacramento.  This Sacramento food tour explores the very beginnings of Sacramento, from Sutter’s colony Nueva Helvecia to the Fabulous Forties, with tastings of the best dishes the immigrants brought with them.  You’ll learn about how the many diverse groups forged our great city and created its agricultural dominance.

Participants enjoy a 3 hour, 2.5 mile flat walking route past historical national landmarks, gorgeous mission style churches and famed architecture throughout period neighborhoods.  Liberally sprinkled among these sites are ethnic eateries that echo the region’s diversity. Come taste Sacramento’s amazing authentic foods hailing from far flung lands such as Spain, Czechoslovakia, Turkey, and China’s Szechuan province.  Our Origins of Sacramento Food Tour finds us meandering through two very historical but popular neighborhoods; Midtown’s Sutter District and East Sacramento’s Fabulous Forties. By touring the city on foot, whether a visitor or a resident of Sacramento, uncover the hidden gem restaurants and establishments that you just don’t see driving by. Get tidbits of Sacramento’s history while tasting the scrumptious foods that make Sacramento’s culinary scene a regional treasure.
Meet the talented and passionate chefs while sampling their creations….a foodie’s dream come true!

Our City of Trees Food & Cultural Walking Food Tour is still going strong after 5 months of taking participants on a guided tour through two of our most historical and eclectic neighborhoods in downtown Sacramento.  You’ll learn where our state politicians and local foodies dine, taste farm fresh ingredients that inspire local chefs, and explore beautiful mansions and their architectural history. This tour takes you on a gastronomic adventure off the beaten path. Advanced ticketing is required and tours can sell out well in advance.   Book your fun and tasty food tour experience today! Local Roots Food Tours limits each group to 16 individuals to keep the experience small and intimate; each tour is narrated by our trained guides.
