South Lake Tahoe: Sightseeing Cruise of Emerald Bay
- Duration: 2 hours
Great sites, driver was super friendly. We weren’t able to eat at our leisure in the vehicle due to Covid which was a challenge in a 15 hour trip. We also could have condensed some of the sites. We never got to stop and take pictures at overlooks for those iconic Yosemite park views— that was a big disappointment. Only pics we took were up close to Points Of Interest like El Capitan, etc. Definitely does not need to be an 8 hour tour. Felt like driver was dragging it out a bit bc that’s what we paid for, but I would have preferred getting back earlier. That’s me though. Maybe provide a variety of trip lengths; 3 hour, 5 hour and 8 hour..... Also would suggest updating the excursion description regarding the waterfalls — as being a point of interest during the seasons when they are dried up— would have liked to know that ahead of time. Maybe plan on stopping at the river instead so people can get a water feature of some sorts when the falls are dry. Add a restaurant stop to tour.
This was a good way to get in Yosemite since we weren’t able to reserve a day. Our guide gave us a good overview of the history of the park. I enjoyed having a good amount of free time. A suggestion would be to clean the windows before each trip so it’s easier to enjoy the scenery and take photos through clean windows.
We loved it! As far as the lunch provided by your company...suggest putting the onions separate or asking ahead as you do which type of sandwich if they want onions. Reason being it made other food taste like onions and entire lunch bag smell like onions. Many don’t like them. Otherwise lunch was good!
Guide was very knowledgeable. Quick easy day trip. Thought there would be more hiking, still it was a pretty inclusive trip around the park and it’s nice not to be the one driving.
It’s a challenging hike for a non hiker but totally worth it so beautiful! Maybe recommend a backpack ahead of time as it was awkward to carry the food up.
