We had a large group that went on the dinner cruise at the end of September. Every one had a great time and their food was pretty darn good. They only had one seating this night which was an early one. Would have preferred the late one, but there was not enough people to have two dinner seating's. If they... More

This was a very nice narrated tour of part of Lake Tahoe - really good if you like that sort of thing. We were fortunate to get a sunny day with comfortable temperatures. A highlight of the tour was Emerald Bay. The narration provided a lot of interesting information about the geology and history of Lake Tahoe.

Tahoe Queen has alway been a must however due to the water level it isn't running. We did have an excursion on the Tahoe Paradise Lunch Cruise, It was extraordinary.

This was a relaxing 2 hour cruise with informative narration.The views were spectacular. I really enjoyed seeing Emerald Bay from the boat before seeing it from the overlook later in the day. It gives a real perspective. Plus, you can get a really tasty bacon burger (seemed like a 1/2 lb) in the lounge.

If you drive yourself to Zepher cove you will end up paying $8.00 for parking. Therefore, try to to catch the shuttle bus that stops at several properties in the South Lake area. In addition if you buy the tickets from your hotels activity desk you can save $2.00 per ticket or show your AAA ticket. Our trip in late... More

After we boarded this nostalgic paddlewheeler, our adventure began. The tour was informative and the views were picturesque. The trip was so romantic too. What a wonderful way to learn about the history of the lake while taking in breathtaking views. In a heartbeat, I would take this again. HOW ROMANTIC!

So fun. Sunset cruise across the lake from Zephyr Cove to Emerald Bay. Live music with popular, fun music, dancing, nice views, delicious dinner. I had fantastic ribeye steak & husband had slightly undercooked salmon. But nice presentation with white tablecloth, lovely table setting. No host drinks; good choice. Very attentive staff. Was a very fun evening and definitely enhanced... More

Pretty cool ride across lake and seeing Tahoe basin from Lake level. Of course it's a bit pricey but it's a tourist spot.

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon on the Tahoe Queen. The scenery was beautiful, the narrative very informative. Easy, free, shuttle pick up and return from area hotels. There are discounts (if you ask) for seniors (65+) and past and present military. Although the sun was bright, the wind over the water gets a bit cool. I was happy I had... More
