The driver was very informative, interesting, and personable. Great meals. The guide cared about nature and the environment. The views were beautiful. There were many picture stops and bathroom stops (the park restrooms were horrible). Highly recommend this trip to others.

My husband and his sister waited in the valet area of Harrah's, South Lake Tahoe valet area for 1 hour without any phone notification from this company (time to meet was 6:00am). My husband called me about a no show from the tour company. I looked at my emails from the day before the trip (Wednesday) and I had received... More

This tour cancelled due to lack of interest which has never happened before in 16 years. We waited until 5pm the day prior to hopefully get some more sign ups. That never happened and finally I had to make a heart breaking decision to call the guests on the roster and inform them of cancellation, I felt devastated but for... More

If you do not know Yosemite (and let me tell you I can't imagine anyone knowing it like Snow-shoe John our guide) this is the tour you have to do. This tour was exceptionally well organised; our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the wilderness and environment; the food was delicious and plentiful. Also it wasn't just about the... More

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
