My wife and I took a half day tour on our honeymoon and we LOVED it. The tour guides take you to places that you would never find on your own, and we came away with some beautiful pictures. And don't think that you have to come with fancy cameras or equipment ... we just had our camera phones and... More

I previously wrote that taking a tour with Tahoe Photographic Tours was like having friends take you around to beautiful places, since the guides are always so nice. However, now, Keith and Robin feel like old friends as we've just taken our fourth tour in five years. Last time Keith took us out on two days, probably as a bonus... More

I don't know where to begin - spending time with Keith and Robin made our whole trip! From their incredible knowledge of the area to sharing his photographic skills, they went above and beyond. I not only learned a ton about it photography, we went to places I never would have found and got incredible photos! Add in their personal... More

From booking a seat to the tour itself, this is a great way to savior the spectacular sights of Lake Tahoe and capture memories on film, or file, for a lifetime. Robin's customer service in setting up my trip was exceptional and I appreciated the callbacks and offer of alternative times/dates. Our tour guide Doug was a real gentleman, very... More

WORTH EVERY CENT AND THEN SOME! I am not easy to impress. I rarely consider writing reviews and almost never actually do. That said, it would be unfair to the company to not share my experience with potential clients. THIS IS THE BEST TOUR I"VE EVER GONE ON. I've been a guide for the top adventure companies in several spectacular... More

During our honeymoon in South Lake Tahoe, we took the Tahoe Photographic tour and had Victor as our guide. He was so kind and accommodating to my husband, one year old son and I. He took us to great spots and was very knowledgeable of the area and attractions. I highly recommend this for any one visiting from out of... More

I really enjoyed this tour. Mike was very informative. He took us places I would have never found on my own. He kept pace with the group; not the group keeping pace with him. I may be back next year; if so I'll look into doing this again. The weather was perfect. The clouds were very corroborative. My pictures were... More

This tour was amazing. This is not a typical tour where they take you to the scenic view points off the side of the road. They take the time and effort to get you to places that are off the common trail and let you experience the lake through some very amazing areas. The fact that the guide also took... More

When you are planning a trip there is always a number of tours available -- but this one you do not want to miss! Unlike most of the Lake Tahoe tours, they pick you up right at the front door of your lodging - no waiting out in the heat or the cold! There is a smaller number of people... More
