Going beyond the big city - our other walking food tour can be found in picturesque Murphys,CA.

This history food tour was informative, interesting and had some unique food tastings. Our guide, Ceara (sp?), was delightful and very informed about the history of downtown Sacramento, a town that pretty much grew as a result of the California gold rush of the 1860s....More

We had a group of about 12 adults. I'm not sure if children are allowed on the tour. I wouldn't recommend it for young children even if children were allowed. Lots of walking, some visits include alcoholic beverages.
