“Laketahoe Snowmobile Tour”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2010

Laketahoe Snowmobile Tour
1313 Regency way
Tahoe Vista, CA 96148

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE.
A group of us, total 8 people went on a Saturday afternoon. We booked a 2:30 tour, and we showed up @ 1:45PM as they requested. Customer service there was pushy, made us signed the waiver before we get to inspect the equipments.
A lot of people showed up at the same time frame, so the tour didn't start until 3PM. NOT a big deal, we were still looking forward for the adventure.
We got on the road, estimated about 15 snowmobiles all together plus two guides (front and back), everyone in our group was a first timer. We were learning how to ride the snow mobiles on the slippery surface. During the whole trip, things happened really upset us.
-One friend lost control and stuck in thicker snow, so the tour guides had to help him lift and push the machine to get back onto the road. One of the tour guides lost his patience, started yelling and cussing at my friend for getting stuck.
-One friend wanted to go faster, she asked for permission from the tour guide to move to the front to ride along with the faster rides. And later my friend decided to come back and ride slower with the friends. She raised her hand (the rule) to ask for permission. The tour guide lost his patience again, and called us jack [--] and [--] for causing so much trouble.
-An older couple was riding one snowmobile, lost control, tipped over and had their legs stuck under the snowmobile. No serious injuries. The tour guide in the front was long gone with the faster riders. The tour guide in the back was not able to lift up the snowmobile by himself, so my friend (who was previously stuck in the thicker snow), he helped to lift the snowmobile and saved the older couple.

Conclusion, their customer service is horrible, rude, under staffed, unprofessional, and maybe even racist. I will try snowmobile again, but never with this company! And I will tell every friend of mine, save your money and go somewhere else.
