Our Driver/Guide was excellent & filled with all kinds of interesting facts. One negative, however. Sometimes he drove on winding roads with ONE hand. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL, & of course, potentially dangerous.

Lake Tahoe is a beautiful area. I really enjoyed the stop at Tahoe City. It was a charming town on the water; was very clean, and had lots of character and spectacular fall color, There were restaurants and shops as well. I liked the scenic stops at Emerald Bay and Tahoe Dam--our guide fed the trout at the dam!. It's neat that we also got to see salmon spawning below a bridge.

I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lake Tahoe. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. The coach was very comfortable. There were several stops for photographs and to stretch legs. A great day out if you want to find out a lot of local information about Tahoe and the surrounding area.

Our bus tour around the Lake Tahoe was organized perfectly! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, very professional and friendly. Everyone on the bus got personal attention from our tour guide. It was beautiful trip, very comfortable. We learned a lot of new things about the lake, about its flora and fauna, about the people living there. It was fun! It was pleasure! Thank you Mr. Nevada Smith 😄👍✨!
