“Our Local Roots tour guide Dawnie was very personable and informative. The food and wine restaurant selections happened to be great choices for our tastes. Since we don't drink coffee, Dawnie switched up the tasting to gelato instead. Seeing a few of Sacramento's murals/street art was delightful! After the tour, we were near Sutter's Fort but didn't know how to find it, so she walked us over to the location. Very helpful for a future excursion. It was a beautiful sunny January day in Sacramento, so the weather shouldn't be a concern to others planning a walking tour here.”
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Wow, what a thoughtful review, thanks for taking the time to write to us. I'm thrilled to hear that your tour went so well! Our tour providers are the best - I'll be sure to pass along your high praise for Dawnie! Sacramento is truly an amazing place, and I'm so glad you guys were able to learn and eat your way around town! Best, Jake.
“One of us grew up in Sacramento but leaned some fun facts. We both enjoyed the good and the nice gal that was our guide.”
“Our tour guide, Millie, was great! Very friendly and outgoing. Tour was very relaxing and informative. Food along the way was great and way more than I expected. Would use Cloud 9 Living again.”
“Milli was terrific, and we learned quite a bit about the city we live in!”
“The tour guide did not give a history of the murals when we were sitting in the restaurants, the food was great but hot days require not standing in the sun. ”
“From start to finish, it was an absolutely wonderful experience! As first timers with Local Roots Tours, we were pleasantly surprised and will definitely join in again. Tasty and locally-sourced food, generous portions, some stories about the history of Sacramento, and a casual stroll through neighborhoods. Our guide was upbeat and prepared, and the staff at each of the five venues was wonderfully hospitable. If I could make a suggestion, it would be to include more history --- perhaps how Sacramento grew to be our capital and stories of some well-known "characters" who helped to grow Sacramento. Maybe the guide could have a few historical photos on hand to highlight what our tour area looked like in the past.”
“This was a birthday gift to me. My husband and I loved the tour and Leslie, our tour guide, shared LOTS of Sacramento history, many things I'd never known even after teaching Cal. history yrs. ago. The food was scrumptious and what a variety of samples. We would definitely recommend this tour to others - specially if Leslie is guiding it!”
