One of the most comprehensive tours I have been on. Mike was our guide he was great, funny taking all our questions and answering each with super knowledge. The booking, the pickup the trip all was the best! We learned so much, had fun and just made our trip to South Lake Tahoe special I would highly recommend it!

We were in Tahoe for 2 days only. Wanted to see the highlights, stress free. And TPT was amazing. Doug picked us up at our hotel and took us off the beaten path to every great picture spot around Tahoe. A few short little hike's were good my heart...and stomach...and soul. I can't wait to see the professional pictures they... More

If I could award six stars I would. If you want to get some of the best angles and locations to photograph Lake Tahoe and the vicinity you just cannot do better than this. We had already driven around the lake two days and got some great pictures but we got much better locations with this tour. Ask for Mike,... More

Our 23 year old son who is a photographer was the one who took this tour. Doug led this tour. He was very knowledgeable about the area as he had lived their his entire life. He took us to many spots not overrun with tourists which turned out to be great for getting the best shots. I would definitely recommend... More

Our guide, Mike, was excellent! He knew so much about the area, the trees, and the history of the area, it made our tour so much more than a photo tour. We absolutely loved the off-the-beaten path sites that we would not have found on our own. We highly recommend Tahoe Photographic Tours.

This was a really great tour. It was our first time in Lake Tahoe. We were able to see Tahoe from places we would have never found on our own. Truly a beautiful place. Victor our tour guide did an excellent job. The pictures Keith sent us afterwards are really special. Great time!

This is my second tour. It was as good as I remembered from the first tour. The clouds didn't cooperate for sunset pics but Keith took us to areas we hadn't seen before and got some great water shots on the bays. The second best part of the tour is processing all of the good shots I got and printing... More

Really, believe the hype! The Tahoe Photographic Tours for us was a phenomenal, tremendous experience. We opted for the 3/4th day tour, and we were very happy with our choice. We had the chance to see so many diverse aspects of Lake Tahoe. From the beach by the water to the top of pretty much mountains, we could not have... More

I had heard great things about this tour, but had no idea what awaited me when Victor showed up at my cabin. He was so careful of me (I'm 73) and considerate; I'm just enamoured of him. While there are no bathrooms on an auto tour, Victor made sure to include both a potty stop and a general store visit... More
