Our party of 5 enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The tour guide/ driver was well informed with lots of tidbits about celebrities, nature, and facts. Some of us are pretty slow and have difficulty walking but there was plenty of time at each stop.

Great tour! Very comprehensive with lots of commentary by the driver/guide. The tour covers the entire perimeter of Lake Tahoe with several stops along the way.

It was wonderful tour for us. We enjoyed very much with our co-travellers.
