This is the BEST food tour we have done so far in the US. There was only the two of us in the tour and they were willing to make it a private tour for us without extra charge. Our guide was super sweet, funny and very knowledgeable not only about the food scene in Sacramento but also all the street art! We used to live in Sacramento and never knew it’s actually a really cool city! The food was great! The art was awesome! It should be a must do for everyone who visit Sacramento!

Ciara was an incredible tour guide on our art and food tour. The murals in midtown are many and it was great to learn about the artists. What I did not expect was the depth of history we learned. She knew her history and made it fun and informative.
Oh and the food.....I don’t want to give away the surprise but the variety of the food was only surpassed by how yummy it all was. We had the best time and highly recommend Local Roots.

Booked directly through the Hyatt concierge ..too late to book with TA. However, the walk was easy and the FOOD WAS DELICIOUS. Every restaurant was waiting for us to arrive and ALL restaurants aimed to please.

Went on the Downtown Sac food tour with tour guide Cearra. I and my 2 other family members had a very good time. Food was delicious and our guide was fun, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable. We originally signed up for the Midtown food tour. I appreciated that Dawnie called after checking the weather to offer the Downtown one instead, as it had more shade and less walking, which we readily agreed to in the 90+ degree heat. Would definitely recommend to anyone (tourist or local) who wants to get to know some of the classic as well as hidden / newer food gems in Sac.
