We were picked up at our hotel by our guide, Victor. In the 7 hours we were together, he took us to many locations for beautiful views of Lake Tahoe. Several of these locations we never would have found on our own. Victor was also very knowledgeable of the area, and shared the history of the area with us. This... More

There's so much beauty in South Lake Tahoe but to really get a chance to see and photograph these sights in a day, this photography tour can't be beat. Our guide Mike really knew his way around a camera and the terrain. The sights we visited gave us ample opportunity for shutter time with our cameras. Mike's camera was busy... More

The tour guide, Griffin, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the Tahoe area and told us interesting stories along the way. We were able to tailor the tour based on everyone's preferences. This was the first day in Tahoe for one couple and the others had explored for a couple of days, so he made sure to take us to... More

In addition to doing a private boat tour and an ATV tour, we did the Tahoe Photographic Tour (1/2 day). We had seven of us, including four teenagers. Everyone had a blast on the Tahoe Photographic Tour, which was the highlight of our trip. This assumes you are interested in great background info on the area, the beautiful sights, an... More

This half-day tour was great. Our guide was Griffin, who is young, gregarious, knowledgeable, and loves photography. Sadly, my best camera is an iPhone - but Griffin captured our tour with some postcard-quality photos using professional equipment. All of his photos were free and available for download within a week. Our tour group consisted of 6 individuals from 2 families,... More

This was a wonderful outing. The scenery was breathtaking, and the photographs were as well. Griffin was a great tour guide and photographer. I've gotten many "likes" on Facebook from the photographs.

This tour will not disappoint. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. Places we would never have found. Our guide Griffin is a polite, knowledgeable extremely adept photographer. And he loves his job! Everyone knows about Lake Tahoe, but Fallen Leaf Lake, Lily Lake, Sugar Pine Park and much more is what you’ll get with this tour. The photos Griffin took are... More

Our group of four spent a beautiful day with Doug, he went over and above to take some very interesting pictures. He took us to some very beautiful, out of the way locations. We are still traveling but can't wait to get home to see all the great pictures that were taken. Would highly recommend Tahoe Photographic Tours.

I booked this for a surprise birthday present for my wife and while it wasn't what I expected, it was even better. Perhaps I misread the description, but I expected a boat tour on the lake where we could take our own photos. So, when it snowed 4" the night before and was fairly cold, I expected this tour to...
