Departure & Return
What To Expect
You’ll travel along the south shore first, stopping at Emerald Bay State Park, home to the lake’s most beautiful vistas. Step out to admire Fannette Island and the peaks towering over the brilliant blue of the water.
Hop back on the bus to continue along the western shore for a picturesque walk around Tahoe City. Your next stop will be to the home of the 1960 Winter Olympics, Lake Tahoe’s prominent Squaw Valley Ski Resort, where large crowds come to hit the slopes each year. Take some time to explore the mountain village before heading back to Tahoe City. There, your guide will drop you at the Boatworks Mall, where you can purchase lunch at one of establishments overlooking the lake or peruse the shops.
After a 1.5-hour break, you’ll travel across the state border into Nevada, stopping at Sand Harbor for more incredible views. As you travel, your guide will provide fun and factual narration about the area and the sites that you pass. Your Lake Tahoe circle tour will conclude at its original departure point.
