An excellent tour of Lake Tahoe’s beauty. We had Jim as our tour guide and photographer, and our family couldn’t have asked for a greater person to fulfill that role. Jim took us to many scenic locations a regular tourist couldn’t find, and gave us a great opportunity to take breath-taking photos of ourselves and Lake Tahoe’s beautiful scenery. Not only that, we also had the privilege to learn about Lake Tahoe’s flora and fauna as well as the history and origin of the lake itself. This was one of the best tours we have ever been on and we wholeheartedly recommend Jim as your guide and photographer.

My wife and I spent a wonderful half day plus with Jim and Katie. This was more than just a photo tour. Both guides were enlightening regarding the Tahoe area as well as taking us to some less populated areas for some great photo ops. The pictures they took of us as a couple are special as we were celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary. They did everything as advertised, sending us pictures of our excursion, providing water and chaperoning us around the lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience, myself as a photographer and my wife who enjoyed visiting and touring beautiful Lake Tahoe. Highly recommend.

This photography tour was fantastic! Jim is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to anything Tahoe! My tween girls and I enjoyed our morning with Jim taking pictures ourselves and had special moments captured by Jim for us. Dress to be photographed because his work is amazing! Highly recommend for beautiful pictures and learning interesting things about the area. We highly recommend this tour!

Our tour guide Jim was an invaluable resource helping us understand the nature, wildlife, and particularly the history of tree and plant life around Lake Tahoe. By far the best thing we did during our week in Lake Tahoe. Highly recommend this tour !

Our guide,Jim,was very professional and pleasant. He made the group feel welcome and answered our many questions. He gave us quite a bit of history of the area and took us to several places that were off the beaten path and less crowded. We had left early enough that we missed many of the crowded areas that made parking difficult. Just reviewed the photos and they are amazing. Great job all around .Would definitely recommend to anyone.
