"The Walking Food Tour was 'Gourmet on K' in Sacramento. We stopped at 6 restaurants, with excellent food in all of them. The people at the places we went to were incredibly friendly and had a wealth of information to share with us about their product/history/stories etc. The tour can usually take up to 12 people our guide said, but luckily we were the only ones, so it turned in to a private tour! We live in Sacramento too so it was awesome to find out some of the K street history - especially some of the buildings that we ride bikes past all of the time. The tour is well worth doing and the Local Roots Food Tours have other tours they offer around Sacramento. We are already lining up our next one!"
