“Wonderful memories of Tahoe”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We decided on this tour at the last minute on the recommendation of a friend. I'm so glad we did the tour - it was the highlight of our trip to Tahoe! We took the tour in March and were treated to beautiful snow covered fields, waterfalls and all of the back country beauty we would have not seen otherwise. Our guide, Greg, was awesome. He gave us much history about the Tahoe area and was very knowledgable. He picked up as scheduled and was a great host. We were disappointed to have to say goodbye to Greg at the end of the day. We returned to our home on Sunday and were quite surprised that on Tuesday our CD with all of our pictures was in our mailbox. What great memories! If you are planning a trip to South Lake Tahoe this tour is a MUST!! It's the experience of a lifetime and something you won't soon forget!

Hello Tahoe Photographic Tours guest. Greg and I would like to thank you for taking the time to write in your review. We always love to hear that our tour is the highlight of many of our guests experiences in Lake Tahoe. We very much appreciate the input on your guide Greg and that his knowledge and expertise were a major contributing factor to your wonderful experience.

Many guests don't realize that winter is a wonderful time to visit Lake Tahoe and go on tour, however each month of the year offers something unique. Once again thank you so much for you joining us and we look forward to seeing you during another season.

“Great Tour”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I really enjoyed my tour. Greg picked me up on-time at my hotel. He was very knowledgeable about the area and photography which made the day very interesting. He took us to some beautiful spots that you would not be able to find unless you were very familiar with the area. Snowshoeing through the newly fallen snow was easy and fun. Make sure to wear snowboots or ask to borrow a pair when you book the tour. Greg took some beautiful pictures of the scenery and us. Even if you are not a photography enthusiast, I think you would enjoy your tour since the stops are so beautiful.

“See the Real Tahoe with a Real Photographer”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This was a great experience and an opportunity to see the Real Tahoe. I flew into Tahoe for a ski trip, but being an amateur photographer, I wanted an opportunity to photograph this beautiful area. I set up my trip with Keith Price, owner of Tahoe Photographic Tours. We started the day early and Keith picked me up in an SUV at my hotel for the photographic tour. This worked great for me because I had no transportation. As we drove to our first location, Keith provided great information about the Lake Tahoe area and its history. I found Keith to be a very knowledgeable photographer and a very nice guy. We has a great day and Keith took me to private locations that I would not have had access to even if I had transportation. We photographed scenic vistas of Emerald Bay, waterfalls, Lake Tahoe, and just enjoyed the amazing beauty of the area. At the conclusion of the day, I felt I had spent the day with a good friend. I will definitely contact Keith next time I am in Tahoe. I highly recommend this great tour that is available at such a bargain price. See the Real Tahoe with Tahoe Photographic Tours. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks again,

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Tahoe. I took the tour in February and got to see gorgeous views of melting waterfalls, icicles, and pristine fields of snow. The tour takes you to places that only locals would know about, but you also get to visit the scenic spots featured on Tahoe postcards. We visited a small clearing that was peaceful, tranquil, and deserted. For the first time in my life, I experienced complete silence - no chirping birds, no rustling leaves, traffic, or voices . . . it was eerily beautiful to be enveloped in such absolute stillness.

Our guide Greg had a great sense of humor and was VERY knowledgeable! We learned the names of mountains, the history of Emerald Bay, about real estate in the Lake Tahoe area and so much more. He even taught me how to snow shoe for the first time and I don't think I would have every tried snow shoeing if I hadn't gone on this tour.

And finally, I learned some great tips on how to use my camera!

“Definite highlight of our trip!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We highly recommend taking the day-long photographic tour! Greg was our guide and, since we booked during the week, we two were the only ones in the group. He personalized our tour for us and our photographic abilities. The candid and posed shots he took of us were excellent and he was, after having spent 30+ years in the local forestry service, so knowledgeable about the area. We received our DVD within a week and, watching it, felt like we were back in South Lake Tahoe! Thanks to Keith, Robyn and Greg! From Jackie and Vanessa

Hello Vanessa P, thank you very much for taking the time to write in a review about Tahoe Photographic Tours. Mike was actually your guide and It is great to hear that he offered such personalized service, and was able to give you some tips about how to use your camera. Our Around The Lake tour provides numerous photo opportunities, and I'm sure that gave Mike ample time to share his vast forestry knowledge. I'm glad to hear you got your photos in a timely manner and were happy with the products and services you received. Thank you again for your wonderful comments, and we look forward to you visiting at another time of year.

Sincerely,
Keith P
