Loved it. Will go again if I have the chance! It was a gorgeous sunny day with a light breeze. Very scenic and the narrative was very interesting.

Relaxing....great views of the lake and surrounding cities. Once you get to Emerald Bay, it's just stunning. And I love that they play music as well as have different historical facts they tell you about. Great experience for any age.

This was the second time I took the Lake Tahoe tour on the MS Dixie II. Once again, it was interesting and informative. It was a beautiful fall day and the lake did not disappoint.

Nice way to see the lake and have lunch or dinner. It was nice because afterwards we were nice and tired and had a relaxing nap. Thank You

The scenery was beautiful. We also loved hearing all the history behind Lake Tahoe. The only thing I would change is how long it is. Two hours was a bit too long.
