We got to see shore lines we would have never seen otherwise. Our tour guide was ver knowledgeable about Tahoe and kayaking. The guide goes at your speed so it’s perfect for any level. The experience was amazing. The only part that I didn’t like was the parking situation but this was not the tour’s fault. Maybe parking should be reserved for groups that booked a tour?
