“Worth every penny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Great day out today helped by gorgeous weather, we took the full 1 day tour all the way around the lake, lots of different views of the lake and great information given by Mike our guide with 34 years of local knowledge.
I would recommend this tour to anyone even if you aren't into photography but want a great tour of this beautiful lake.
We booked from the UK and can't fault the communication and service.
Many thanks to Mike, Robyn & Keith.

“If you don't have a camera BUY ONE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I are advanced amateur photographers and booked this tour so we could take advantage of someone who knows the Lake Tahoe area. Keith was so sweet. He actually drove to meet us the day before our reservation and took us to two incredible spots on the house! When I told him my husband has MS and can't walk well he insisted on bringing him along for free and tailored the tour so he could come with us and enjoy the views of this amazing place. Keith is so passionate about making you happy. This tour is worth every penny if you love beautiful landscapes and want to take home memories that are just as beautiful!

“One of my best day in Tahoe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

My best friend booked a tour for 4 hours for herself and I decided to join her. We were picked up from our hotel by Dough and Linda who are very nice and very welcoming. They drove us to Emerald Bay to meet Keith; one of the most talented photographer i've ever met. =)

They took us to places and spots that we would never get to see if not because of them. All of the places they took us are amazing with spectacular scenery. (trust me, there's lot of hidden spot for beautiful photo and food for your eye and soul)

Everything is just perfect with all the good time, memory, and fun. I'm still smiling when thinking about the tour with Keith, Dough, and Linda.

Most importantly, I just received the best quality photos from our tour in my mail today! (it was less than a week!). They are all terrific! Keith and Dough photos are so beautiful. I love love them.

Make sure you get on the tour with them if you go to Tahoe! Or you will miss a big time =)

“The Splendor of Lake Tahoe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This tour is a “must do” for amateur photographers visiting Lake Tahoe. The owner, Keith, was extremely accommodating and responsive when I scheduled the tour. He was totally committed to ensuring that we would have the most positive experience. Our guide, Doug, conveniently picked us up at our hotel. He was a terrific tour guide. He took us to places that we would have never found on our own. He knew exactly where to go to pick up the most magnificent colors in our pictures. The contrast of the white snow, sandy beaches, blue water and sky were nothing short of spectacular. My wife and I took some of the best photographs of our lives. I never felt rushed. We were able to go to several locations with awesome scenery that were secluded and had practically no crowds. At one point we saw two wild coyotes and got some great candid photographs. Doug took some great shots of my wife and me. The CD that we received in the mail a couple weeks after the trip had some phenomenal pictures of the two of us with all the splendor of Lake Tahoe. Thanks Keith and Doug for a great experience!
