We took this 13 hour guided tour from South Lake Tahoe. The group of 24 travelled on a small bus through this fantastic National Park. We were so happy we did not try this drive on our own. We might have been lost and certainly would not have known what we were looking at. In order to see the natural... More

Excellent close up tour of the entire Lake Tahoe perimeter plus side trip to Squaw Valley with wonderful and informative narration by the driver. Pick up and drop off at your hotel - a convenience and time-saver for busy tourists, and no parking hassles. Saw things and learned facts about Tahoe that you would never have known except from an...

He said we can call him Shoe, Snow or John, but to us he was the spirit of Yosemite. Snowshoe John, our guide for an amazing 10-hour tour around Yosemite, is part mountaineer, part hiker, part historian and part spirit guide. He almost never stopped telling us interesting, surprising, and informative things about Yosemite, environmentalism, Civil War history, sustainability -... More

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your review. It's easy for me to tell guests how good our tours and our driver / tour guides are, but now I can just refer them to the Trip Advisor reviews where they get a direct feedback from someone that just took one. thank you Janez Demsar More

Had booked two tours w/Discover Lake Tahoe both with John behind the wheel. The wine tasting was fantastic. We were a little nervous because we know very little about wine but the hospitality was over the top so we enjoyed it very much. With John as our guide for the trip to Yosemite we were set for a very comfortable,... More

Took a drive from Lake Tahoe to Virginia City, Nevada with family and friends and had a wonderful 1/2 day in this quaint little mining town. First thing we did was took the trolley tour which gave us a brief and very entertaining history of the town by Bill, the operator, and created a starting point for wandering the rest... More

See Marian H's review below. She's captured it perfectly. Going to Yosemite was on the to-do list for over 25 years and John did not disappoint. Great value for money--his knowledge, hospitality and professional driving were much appreciated. Just a perfect day.

Of course, no one can predict weather on any given day, but I do believe our tour guide John must have done some sort of Indian Weather Dance, because it was a perfect day for our trip to Yosemite. We were picked up at a local hotel (We were at the wrong one) and rode for a little over 2... More

Ms. Dixie II paddlewheel boat tour of Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay is a memorable experience. The world's second largest Alpine lake is beautiful and the two-hour trip is superb.
