“Great tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

After comparing to other tours, this seemed like the best deal for the price. Were able to pick a time and place that worked for us and where we wanted to go. Very flexible and Capt. Troy told us lots of interesting stories about the places we saw and was a generally nice guy.

Awesome trip, well worth the little bit extra.

“Gorgeous Scenic Lake Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We road aboard the Tahoe Queen; a true paddlewheeler on our tour of Lake Tahoe. We took the early afternoon tour (although evening tours are available with meals). The trip starts at South Lake Tahoe and heads north to Emerald Bay; the most picturesque spot on Lake Tahoe. And Lake Tahoe has no shortage of beauty no matter where you are along its route. The waters are tourqoise, emerald and deep sapphire blue depending upon the depths. Sometimes you can capture all the varying hues of blue in one photo shot.
Snacks are availabe for purchase. And I'd highly suggest bringing sunglasses, sun hat and sunscreen as the rays reflected off the lake are fairly strong. (No smoking is allowed on these trips. The region is very protective of Lake Tahoe's pristine, clear waters and endevours to prevent litter from being thrown into the lake.)
The tour is round-trip and approximately 2 1/2 hours long and is a great way to spend an afternoon.

“Captain Troy is great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

We have been in Tahoe for a week and today was our last day here. I was surfing the net last night and found Tahoe Lake Tours online. I decided to e-mail them to see if they could accommodate us today, Friday, Aug. 10, 2012. Captain Troy wrote back to say he could so my husband and I decided to book him for a tour. We set a time, he picked us up at the designated dock (he can pick you up from almost any dock, even a private one). We told him what we wanted to do, tour the Nevada side of the lake etc., and he accommocated us. He will do anything you want, take you on a boat ride, gear you up with snorkeling equipment, take you tubing etc. We usually do book in advance, but we were grateful that he could accommodate us for a last minute desire to do a private boat ride on the lake. He is $120/hour and he will accommodate you for as long as you like. He can take 6 on his boat so splitting the coast is a good idea too. Captain Troy is very friendly and will tell you a lot about the area.
