I do not know the organized tours from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe, but if you google you will come up with a long list. Some may be useful to you, some not.

Good luck.

You might want to post this question on the San Francisco board since that is where the tour company would start. You can use Amtrak to get to South Lake Tahoe without driving, but that is not an organized trip.

hey all, thanks for this. I am happy to drive to Lake Tahoe, but looking for a tour once there, or a full day of excursions and hotel ?

You don't need to pay anyone for a tour.

Self-drive around the lake.

Visit Sand Harbor

Take on of the boat trips out of Ski Run Marina to Emerald Bay on the Tahoe Queen

Take the Heavenly gondola trip up for a great view

Look at the FAQ on the right hand column for ideas about Tahoe activities

Since you can drive and speak passable English you don't need a tour. Closest thing would be a boat ride on the lake.

What is your budget for a hotel? One of the casino hotels in SLT might fit the bill, like Harvey's or Harraha's. you would have lake views from the tower rooms and restaurants to choose from, as well as a casino.
