Nevada Smith was engaging. He communicated excellently and remembered our names. We enjoyed an absolutely beautiful day riding around Lake Tahoe. Hint: when choosing your seat, sit on the right side - our tour went in the clock-wise direction. We were all 40+ You know your family; Not sure teens and children would engage and be happy riding from 8am - ~3pm. Lunch is on your own and two hours.

Our Driver/Guide was excellent and filled with all kinds of interesting facts. One negative, however. Sometimes he drove on winding roads with ONE hand. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL, and of course, potentially dangerous.

Lake Tahoe is a beautiful area. I really enjoyed the stop at Tahoe City. It was a charming town on the water; was very clean, and had lots of character and spectacular fall color, There were restaurants and shops as well. I liked the scenic stops at Emerald Bay and Tahoe Dam--our guide fed the trout at the dam!. It's neat that we also got to see salmon spawning below a bridge.

I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lake Tahoe. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. The coach was very comfortable. There were several stops for photographs and to stretch legs. A great day out if you want to find out a lot of local information about Tahoe and the surrounding area.
