Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your photography tour begins with pickup in the South Lake Tahoe area by your knowledgeable guide, who provides an intimate experience that accommodates a variety of photo interests. This small-group tour by luxurious vehicle is limited to six people but often operates with even less participants, so you can count on personalized attention.

When booking, select from two options to suit your schedule and budget—the half-day Ultimate Scenic Tour, which features locations like iconic Emerald Bay and a beach with views of Mt Tallac, or the full-day Grand Tahoe Around the Lake Tour, which circles Lake Tahoe to provide as many photo ops as possible in one day.

What a wonderful day exploring Lake Tahoe by circumventing the lake and taking pictures from various spectacular spots. They picked us up in a comfortable minivan and the guide Jim was insightful, kind, and understanding. They also took pictures along the way which they will send to you 1-2 weeks later. Great tour!

WOW! Talk about amazing! WE meet Keith and he drove us around the lake. We made stops and walked a few trails. He had water, hand sanitizer, masks, and knowledge of the area to be a true guide. We walked to a place where if alone we would have stopped and he said step up on the rock or squeeze between these bushes and then the view went from amazing to spectacular! He took photos of the landscape and of us in the sett that we will cherish always. He history and knowledge of the area were priceless, but the photos to go along with it there are not sufficient to describe. We have already recommended it to many friends!
