Changing the way you look at midtown
Matthew_F, Feb 2023
Even though we live in midtown, we wanted to explore more that midtown has to offer. We were shown places that we had never been to before, which was really awesome! Even the one restaurant that we had attended before, we were introduced to new items that we never considered ordering before. Kevin was a great tour guide and we had lots of fun info shared with us along the tour. The art we were shown were awesome and it made me look at midtown in a completely new way.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for taking the time to review your tour with us. We're so glad you enjoyed yourselves and learned something new too! We think Kevin is pretty great at that, offering both a good time and a little education! Midtown is such a lovely part of our city and we're glad you gained a new appreciation! Thank you again for your great review!
Thinking About This? DO IT!
Sheridan_C, Oct 2022
For our short 24 hours in Sacramento, we could not have chosen a better experience to immerse ourselves in the local culture, color and flavor of the arts district. Our guide, CC, was so knowledgeable about everything from the history of the city, to local art, to building/home preservation initiatives, to local food flavor, to weekly happenings, to other recommendations after our tour…and even the trees! There wasn’t a question she couldn’t answer - a true professional. Her ease with the neighborhood, streets, and local stops could not have been better. For anyone who is a visitor to the city, or a Sacramentan who wants to learn more about the city, we could not recommend anything better!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you for taking the time to review your tour with us. & what a review!! We're so very glad you joined us and enjoyed your time with CC. All of us here at LRFT love living in Sacramento and love showing it off even more. I'm so glad that showed/glowed in your time with us! Thank you!
A Sacramento must!

Murals, food, fun and life changing coffee
Mindy_B, Feb 2021
What a great tour. The murals were amazing and I loved all the stories that our tour guide, Kevin, shared about them. Super nice, socially distanced, mask wearing tour mates made the tour even more fun. Hands down best cup of coffee I have ever had in my life was at pachamama. I may have to go back today. These tours make you love and appreciate your hometown even more!! Fun day for friends, family, guests!!
Response from Host, Feb 2021
Thank you for taking the time to review your Local Roots Food Tours tour. We're especially pleased that you enjoyed yourself! We couldn't agree with you more on Pachamama coffee and Kevin too! Local Roots Food Tours = showcasing the very best of Sacramento. Thank you and we'll see you again soon, Mindy!

Our walk through the Midtown Arts Ditrict was fabulous! Our guide was informative, friendly, and generous... We enjoyed the murals and information about them and the history behind them... and the choice of restaurants was wonderful... thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon...

Mary H, Feb 2016
Our tour guide was fun and had some great information about the city. The food we had was really great, I only wish there had been a couple more tastings. The tour was a long one and a little more food and a little less art and walking would have been nice. But overall, I did enjoy myself and I would recommend the tour.
