About Me

My name is Rachel Elste and I have been in the personal assistant and concierge business for 13 years.  I have lived in Tahoe for over 20 years.  I know how to connect with visitors and high quality products and services in the Truckee-Tahoe area.  My husband Dennis and I are raising our 3 kids to enjoy all the sports, activities, and benefits this area has to offer-and we want to share it with you! 
  From 1991 to 2002 I worked as a River guide, trip leader, and company leader for Holiday River Expeditions and ARTA river trips.  In addition to rowing boats and leading hikes, I was responsible for planning, organizing, and packing a menu for up to 30 people on multi-day  wilderness expeditions through the beautiful canyons of Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, and California.  This was a wonderful experience that taught me about hard work, organization, logistic coordination, and customer service.  Rivers continue to run deep in my veins and we take our family on at least one multi-day river trip every summer.
