This was a perfectly fine thing to do; but my 9 and 11 year olds had more fun just going to the beach at Zephyr Cove and swimming in the lake.
This tour gave a good in depth history of the lake and Emerald Bay; but you could barely hear the commentary.
Everything cost extra and wasn't a good value, in my opinion. My dad treated us to the experience; but for families traveling - I would skip this one. We got much more beautiful views from driving around the top of the lake. You can REALLY get a feel for Emerald Bay much better from the top looking down.
