Family goes to Tahoe ever other year. Grandma came this year and is not up much for hiking so we decided to take the Duck Tour. I've heard nothing but great things about the tour in other cities and thought this would be ideal for the family. Unfortunately, it was a complete waste of time and money.
The tour begins by driving west from Heavenly Village to the Keys. Our guide pointed out the (non)historical monuments and fine dining establishments of McDonald's and IHOP. Once at the Keys we slow launched the Duck, trolled out of the marina and then spent about 15 minutes on the lake. Our tour was further enhanced with a discussion of non native seaweed and a stop after exiting the lake to remove this foreign element. Back to Heavenly Village and pointing out a few more eating establishments. No history. No fun. No way to get my hour and a half back.
This was by far, the worst "city" tour I have ever taken. My recommendation would be to skip this tour and pay a couple of bucks more and take either a sailing tour or the paddle wheel boat tour to Emerald Bay.
