What people are saying about Sierra Nevada, California

We were able to visit and see places that we would have never found on our own. Jim was our guide and he was AWESOME! I thought I had booked a boat tour and lo and behold it was a photography tour ‍♀️‍♀️ But it was a blessing in disguise because my husband and I had a great time!

We got more than we were expecting. Our guide gave us historical information, which I expected but she also took pictures of us along the way. I look forward to getting those photos. She also gave us excellent information about setting the scene when taking pictures.

Our guide, Jeff Grant was extremely knowledgeable about the area around Lake Tahoe and took us to some fantastic vantage points for pictures. I highly recommend this tour. It is personal and you end up with some profession photos.

Great overall experience. Guide was super personable and courteous throughout the morning and even gave suggestions on what else she recommended while in Tahoe. Would recommend.

Guide was very informative, and took us to great views
