Miss a few highlights, having to circle back. Prefer to have a little bit longer trip. There's enough time to circle the whole lake


This link is so glitchy!!! It was difficult to download everything, and when I entered the code, it took me up an undeveloped trail. Took us a while to have room to turn around. One hour to travel a few miles. Her narrating is also off and out of order. It was a mess. 100% do not recommend.

It didn’t work!! I tried several different times and ways to download it but it wouldn’t show up in the app. It didn’t have any problems charging my credit card, however!


The tour gave an interesting history of area including the fire that destroyed the Tahoe Queen. We took a trip on the MS Dixie.


The narration was fine. It really kept up with where you were. The only thing we found confusing was the starting point.


Entertaining and informative. We made some of the suggested stops but didn’t do the hikes. Good way to get a better understanding for the area. We ended up listening to it twice since we found ourselves driving the same route the next day to go to South Lake Tahoe


This was a perfect, day long outing for my wife and I. The technology worked great and the narration was helpful while not excessive. The tour showed us to places that we might have missed. It was a great day!


I enjoyed the history aspect and the hiking details. The narrator was very interesting. Thanks for the trip and the great value.


Much better than expected. The tour was informative. Better than being on a bus with a crowd of people We will do more of these.

We drove around Lake Tahoe leaving the Hyatt around 10 am and returned around 2. For the 1st third of the trip we used this guide. We were amazed at how accurate the turn directions were. The narration was interesting and helped us determine where to stop. We would recommend for anyone looking for some guidance around the lake. There were two other segments available for the entire trek. We elected to go it on our own.
