We were a group of 11, and opted for the private tour with Darin. The van was a little tight, but we all could see the beauty of the lake and scenery. Darin did a great job of sharing his knowledge about the lake, its history and perfect places for viewing and photos. He is entertaining, and we felt very safe with his driving the tight curves around the lake. We stopped in Tahoe City at Tahoe House Bakery & Gourmet - great stretch, rest stop, coffee & treats. Later we stopped for lunch at Crosby's Tavern - excellent with plenty of choices for each of us. I would highly recommend using this company to enjoy a day around the lake, and be able to relax and enjoy the scenery without doing the driving.

Our tour guide was energetic, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Lake Tahoe. He told us many fascinating stories and legends you could never find in a book. Our group thoroughly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it to travelers looking to see EVERYTHING and all of the sites of beautiful majestic Lake Tahoe.

I highly recommend Around Tahoe Tours. The tour guide Chris Talbot was so knowledgeable, a historian and a professional photographer. During the tour there was an audio narrator about Lake Tahoe with the wonderful voice of his brother. We were also entertained with the amazing voice of his brother who composed and sang the songs all about Tahoe. It was a whole package with never a dull moment, a 5-6 hour tour with Chris. We learned a lot of stories around the magical lake. Thanks!

Booked the tour from home months ago with Chris and it was so easy. A great way to really get to know Lake Tahoe and it’s history in depth without being behind the wheel. Chris knew all the ins and outs of getting into fabulous breathtaking views of the Lake, the surrounding towns, parks, beaches and the breath taking mountains filled with rich Pine trees. Air is so clear, water is so blue that it just takes your breath away. Chris was excellent and so filled with knowledge, but the best part was his love of Lake Tahoe and the pride and respect he has for this rich area. You must book this trip upon arrival and it will give you a layout of the “land” so you can go back and revisit what you love.

Scam Alert! Talked with representative about a boat tour. Talked in depth about swimming in Lake Tahoe. Talked about being able to see the castle from the lake. Paid a significant amount of money. Got a gentlemen who looked like he was hung over and fell out of bed. When we finally realized that we weren't going on a boat. He said he couldn't give us a refund because he got out of bed. Was held hostage by a man who does poor acting, singing skills, and personality is dual as the can ride we over paid for. Don't do it!

What an amazing day! Chris detailed the history of the lake and entertained ages 7 to 80 years old in our party of 9. That’s not an easy task! We experience all the beautiful scenery and stopped for pictures and local drink and food stops. Great experience and highly recommend. Thanks Chris, The Anthony’s look

It was so easy to book a tour with these brothers. Made arrangements with Chris and he would respond in a timely manner.
We were a family group of 9 and All Adults! Darin handled our tour around Lake Tahoe and the Comstock. Darin puts you at ease and will make sure the journey was exciting and entertaining. It was an awesome tour and we all had a great time. He picked some huge pine cones for all of us as our souvenir. He took us to all the beautiful places and sadly we just did not have enough time to stay at each lovely place longer.
Chris would text me to check in on us. You couldn't ask for a better team as tour guides to Lake Tahoe.
I would highly recommend them and looking forward to having them as our tour guides the next time I am in Reno/ Lake Tahoe. There are still so many places I would like to visit and places I want to revisit.
Thank you so much Darin and Chris! You BOTH are the BEST!

Thanks Chris for making our tour around Lake Tahoe a memorable experience. Chris was flexible with the scenic stops. His knowledge and love for lake Tahoe was amazing. His brother’s recorded talk about lake Tahoe added with music was fun and interesting. My kids loved the trip and all the scenic stops. A must for any visitor.

Darin Talbot was the quintessential tour guide. He provided history of Lake Tahoe and some of its unique inhabitants. All this was done in an easy conversational manner. Darin kept us entertained and captivated. We learned so much more about the area and visited some parts of it than we would have driving around by ourselves. Darin stopped in some incredibly beautiful places and allowed us time to do our own exploring. I recommend Around Tahoe tour to anyone wanting to learn about Lake Tahoe and see her beauty!

An amazing day seeing the entire area of beautiful Lake Tahoe. Darrin had incredible local history from early days of Lake Tahoe to recent events. Loaded with anecdotal accounts and names of residences then and now. Well worth the price for 2 couples. Highly recommend Darrin and the Around Tahoe Tours!
