Full description
Take an enjoyable Lake Tahoe excursion that circles the lake and makes a detour to Squaw Valley, the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics. On this narrated bus tour, you’ll marvel at the natural beauty of the region while you learn more about the area and leave the driving to your guides.

This 7-hour tour departs from South Lake Tahoe hotels after breakfast. You travel clock-wise around the lake and make your first stop at Emerald Bay.

Emerald Bay is one of the area’s most photographed sites. Its vista point offers spectacular views of the bay and Fannette Island. You’ll then continue traveling along the lake’s western shore, and make your next stop at the Truckee River Dam, which presents another great opportunity for photos.

You then make a detour to visit Squaw Valley, which is located 8 miles north of Lake Tahoe. This lovely and historic valley hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics.

In Tahoe City, which marks the half-way point of our tour, you'll stop at the Boatworks Mall for lunch. You'll have a have plenty of eateries to choose from here, including sandwich shops, coffee shops, and lakeside restaurants.

After lunch, your excursion continues along the lake’s northern and eastern shores, with a stop to enjoy the views and take photos at scenic Logan Shoals.
