Not everyone on this review is speaking of the same tour. We took the "Lake Tahoe Circle Tour Including Squaw Valley" in mid-October and booked it through Viator. The price was $45 pp. It was a wonderful 7 hour tour on a very clean and comfortable shuttle bus. (My only suggestion would be... please add cup holders to the shuttle... More

Very well organised, if not a bit too rushed trip. Enjoyed the photo stops but can't help feeling it would have been nice to be able to have an hour to ourselves at some point to walk around a little bit. Breakfast/Lunch was fantastic, with so many choices and the guide was very knowledgeable telling us some great historic facts,... More

The tour was good, but the driver often took one eye and hand off the wheel to turn back to talk to the passengers even on mountain roads. Food, snacks about what we expected and adequate. Driver knowledge of Park and history very good, good climbing videos. But the driver was NON-stop talk even the entire trip and a lot... More

We were first time visitors to Lake Tahoe and thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour around the lake, including Squaw Valley. Would highly recommend it to first-time visitors. We also took the one day (actually 13 to 14 hours) guided tour to Yosemite. This trip was unbelievably great due primarily to the unbelievable grandeur of Yosemite, but secondarily due to the...

We had the best time ever and our guide was the best. We've traveled with this company and this guide before and enjoyed every moment we were in their company. We took our out of state relatives with us and they felt it was everything we told them the trip would be and even more. Hank, Snowshoe John was our... More

I debated for several weeks whether to include this tour on our Lake Tahoe vacation. We definitely wanted to see Yosemite but we weren't sure about the safety of the bus and how long of day it was going to be. Now after seeing the roads to the park and in the park, for us having an experienced driver made... More

If you are interested in seeing Yosemite National Park, this is the way to go! We have a teen and were worried about her being bored. Snowshoe John made the trip fun and interesting and our entire family had a GREAT time! The pickup time is very early, but worth it as you beat the crowds at the park. The... More

We were picked up at our hotel at 5:45..Ugh!..we're on vacation! But it soon paid off. The panoramic view in the high country were stunning. Many visitors of Yosemite just do the meadow loop, but since we entered from the north east side, we were fortunate to be able to see the mountains from the ridge. Absolutely stunning!

Apologize for not remembering our bus driver/tour guide/host for the day, he was AWESOME! The weather was perfect and the sights and stops we made were great. I took a lot of wonderful pictures for me to remember this tour. I highly recommend everyone to take this tour. I would take this tour again when back in Lake Tahoe. Breakfast... More
