Vue d'ensemble

Remontez le temps dans l'ancien Far West lors de cette excursion allant de South Lake Tahoe à Virginia City, dans le Nevada, y compris une promenade en train sur le chemin de fer Virginia & Truckee. Avec un guide, vous commencerez votre journée en minibus en empruntant une partie du Pony Express. Lorsque vous atteignez Virginia City, un district historique national, prenez un train aller-retour de 10 km avant de profiter de votre temps libre en ville pour explorer à votre guise, en visitant peut-être des musées ou un salon historique.
  • Excursion d'une journée du lac Tahoe à Virginia City, Nevada
  • Parcourez une partie du sentier Pony Express jusqu'à la plus vieille ville du Nevada
  • Faites un tour sur le chemin de fer Virginia & Truckee
  • Imaginez-vous à l'époque des mines du XIXe siècle en vous promenant dans le quartier historique de Main Street
  • Visiter les musées et les demeures historiques, si vous le souhaitez (à vos frais)
  • En savoir plus sur la géologie, l’histoire et la faune de la région grâce à un guide compétent
Votre excursion d'une journée commence lorsque vous quittez South Lake Tahoe avec votre chauffeur / guide en minibus, avec des sièges inclinables et de grandes fenêtres offrant une vue sur le paysage de montagne au cours de la visite de Virginia City, dans le Nevada, en 90 minutes environ.

Pendant le trajet en voiture, qui traverse Carson City, capitale de l’État du Nevada, écoutez les commentaires de votre guide sur la vie animale, la flore, la géologie et l’histoire minières de la région pendant la période du Far West. Parcourez une partie de l’ancien Pony Express, la route des années 1860 qui transportait le courrier à travers les États-Unis, avant d’arriver à Virginia City, qui a commencé lors de la découverte du premier important gisement d’argent du pays.

Descendez du minibus à la gare Virginia & Truckee Railroad pour un aller-retour en train de 10,5 km qui vous mènera à la ville de Gold Hill et inversement. Pendant votre voyage, découvrez l’histoire du chemin de fer, qui remonte à 1869. Après votre trajet en train, vous disposez de deux heures et demie de temps libre à Virginia City. Explorez le quartier historique, inscrit au registre national des lieux historiques des États-Unis, et admirez les bâtiments du XIXe siècle qui bordent la rue principale, tels que l'opéra, et les saloons historiques, tels que l'église catholique St. Mary in the Mountains. Peut-être allez-vous dans un musée ou deux, comme The Way It Was Museum ou Mark Twain Museum, ou déjeunez dans un restaurant local, comme le Delta Saloon. (Tous les frais d’entrée, la nourriture et les boissons sont à votre charge.)

À la fin de votre temps libre, reprenez le minibus pour le retour en voiture vers South Lake Tahoe, où se termine votre journée.

This 35 minute train ride was both educational and informational. It takes place high atop one of the the mountains of the Sierra Nevadas. Quite a bit of mining history and scenic views. This tour allows over two hours of free time to explore the eats ,treats, and unique shops along Main Street. Our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and suggested places to explore and where to have lunch.
Informative Tour

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of info about the area, the history, and Nevada facts. Only down side to his presentation was he named places and people like you should know who or where they were, and we live a thousand miles away. He also repeated himself a lot. Great to not have to drive and be able to view the scenery without worry.

Bought my tickets from viator. Never mentioned the itinerary, only pick-up time and place. Driver of bus never shut-up. He repeats himself constantly. Talked about wild mustangs at least 8 times. After the joke of a train ride we were taken to Virginia City and were stuck there for 2 and 1/2 hours. Didn't get back to Tahoe until 3:30. TOOK ALL DAY!

In behalf of Discover Lake Tahoe Tours, I'm sorry about your unpleasant experience with us. Obviously, I have to reach out to Viator to better inform guests of the itinerary. I'm a bit confused regarding driver taking.., this tour is listed as narrated tour and guests in the past loved it ( read reviews ) also in regards to being stuck there for 2 1/2 hours, the only complaint I usually get is that there isn't enough time. Thank you.
Nice scenic tour

This little tour into Nevada provided a nice break away from Lake Tahoe for a day. The coach was very comfortable. The driver was very knowledgable and friendly. There was a lot of information about the Pony Express and Gold Rush. The train ride in Virginia City was good but a little short - the conductor was brilliant with some very funny commentry. We had lots of free time to explore Virginia City before heading back to Tahoe via a drive through Carson City.

I learned so much from this tour! First on the van ride we had a very informative driver. He took us to many historical places on the way to Virginia City. The train ride was really fun and the steam engine was working that day, too. I learned even more information about the mining and old western towns. We went on the 4th of July so also saw a great parade in Virginia City.

The tour was interesting and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the South Lake Tahoe area and the history surrounding it. The train ride in Virginia City was only 35 minutes and the train volunteer talked about the mines and the overall history of Virginia City. All in all the tour was relaxing and fun. We had 2-1/2 hours to eat lunch, shop and explore Virginia City on our own before boarding the tour van back to South Lake Tahoe. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone new to the area and first time visitors.

Enjoyed going back in time and visiting what it would have been like during the Gold Rush days. Virginia City is small quaint western town with several good restaurants and lots of unique shopping stores. Also enjoyed hearing the history of the area from Lake Tahoe to Virginia City. The train ride is short but gives you the true flavor of the past which was very enjoyable. Visited Carson City and saw some historical sites there as well. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting the area.

This was a fun tour to do. Our driver/guide was knowledgeable in the history of the area from the time we left South Lake Tahoe until we arrived at Virginia City and then back again. The short train ride had great views of the mining areas and we even saw a few wild Mustang horses roaming the terrain. Virginia City takes you back in time with the wood planked sidewalks and all the saloons and other historical buildings. If you've never been before it is a day trip to enjoy and if you have been, go again!
