I enjoy touring areas where I vacation so I know the history. We had a great guide who has been doing this for a long time so was able to point out some very interesting points on the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour.

We appreciated our knowledgeable guide so we could understand what we were seeing on this delightful and scenic tour. Better roadside restrooms would have been appreciated. We took the suggestion about where to eat lunch, but heard some folks had found a place down by the lake. We had only been on the south shore of Tahoe, so we appreciated seeing the rest of it!

Nice tour. Would recommend as it is a good way to see the lake and the communities around the lake.
The tour guide was constantly talking which became annoying.
