Our knowledgeable guides will teach you about the natural and human history of the area, while you watch the sun casts a purple alpenglow onto the Sierras. Depending on the season and weather, you can paddle through the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe, hike or snowshoe through Tahoe's vibrant, yet peaceful forest. After our Sunset Tour, you will be guided to a viewing point, where Tony will open your mind to the fascinating world above. Hot drinks and snacks will be served as our Star Tour begins.
