Jim was fantastic tour guide and an even better photography teacher. His local knowledge got us to the best spots with little traffic. Anyone visiting Lake Tahoe must not miss this experience!

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!

The trip was very well organised. Jim was really kind in giving us time to take photos. The photography tips were really helpful. Since it is a photography tour, i wish the trip starts much earlier, may be by 7AM so that we can get better photos.
