Visão geral

Volte no tempo para o velho Oeste Selvagem nesta excursão de South Lake Tahoe até Virginia City, Nevada, incluindo um passeio de trem na Virginia & Truckee Railroad. Com um guia, você começará sua viagem de um dia em microônibus, dirigindo ao longo de parte do Pony Express. Quando você chegar a Virginia City, um distrito histórico nacional, faça uma viagem de trem de ida e volta de 6,5 milhas antes de aproveitar o tempo livre na cidade para explorar a seu tempo, talvez visitando museus ou um salão histórico.
  • Viagem de um dia de Lake Tahoe a Virginia City, Nevada
  • Viaje ao longo da trilha do Pony Express até a cidade mais antiga de Nevada
  • Pegue uma carona na ferrovia Virginia & Truckee
  • Imagine-se nos dias de mineração dos anos 1800 ao passear pelo distrito histórico de Main Street
  • Visite museus e mansões históricas, se desejar (por conta própria)
  • Saiba mais sobre a geologia, a história e a vida selvagem da região com um guia especializado
Sua viagem de um dia começa quando você sai de South Lake Tahoe com seu motorista / guia de microônibus, com assentos reclinados e grandes janelas que oferecem vistas da paisagem montanhosa durante a viagem de aproximadamente 90 minutos através da linha do estado até Virginia City, Nevada.

Durante a viagem, que passa pela cidade de Carson City, capital do Estado de Nevada, ouça comentários de seu guia sobre a vida animal local, a vida vegetal, a geologia e a história da mineração durante os dias do Velho Oeste. Viaje por uma parte do antigo Pony Express, a rota da década de 1860 que transportou correspondência pelos Estados Unidos, antes de chegar a Virginia City, que começou quando o primeiro depósito de prata importante do país foi descoberto.

Desça o microônibus na estação de Virginia & Truckee Railroad para o seu passeio de trem de ida e volta de 10,5 km que o levará para a cidade de Gold Hill e vice-versa. Durante a viagem, aprenda sobre a história da ferrovia, que remonta a 1869. Após sua viagem de trem, você tem cerca de 2,5 horas de tempo livre em Virginia City para passar o seu tempo livre. Explore o distrito histórico, listado no Registro Nacional de Locais Históricos dos EUA, e admire os prédios do século 19 que se alinham à Main Street como a ópera e salões históricos como a Igreja Católica St. Mary in the Mountains. Talvez confira um museu ou dois, como o The Way It Was Museum ou o Mark Twain Museum, ou almoce em um restaurante local, como o Delta Saloon. (Todas as taxas de entrada, comida e bebidas são por sua conta.)

No final do seu tempo livre, embarque novamente no microônibus para a viagem de volta a South Lake Tahoe, onde termina sua viagem de um dia.

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!
