Great Tour
Mar 2020
I've been visiting and now living in Palm Springs and the area for over 60 years. This tour introduced me to areas I'd never seen. Our driver, Anne, was full of fascinating information. Despite heavy rain that day, we had a wonderful time. I highly recommend.

Enjoyable coach tour of Palm Springs
Mar 2020
Anne was our courteous and informative guide for the 2.5 hour tour around the celebrity homes of Palm Springs. Her knowledge and insight gave the tour a pleasurable and relaxed atmosphere. Welcoming break half way round the tour to stop for a complementary date shake. Well worth considering this tour for an introduction to the famous Palm Springs Mid Century style architecture that feature along some of the roads visited throughout the trip.

Our guide Ann did a fabulous job taking us through the city and past the homes where celebrities once lived or still own. We heard fun stories and learned the history of the area. The date shakes were really good too!

Wonderful Walk
Feb 2020
The 2.5 walk with Steve was informative, enjoyable and easy. He told antidotes about the stars as well as being very knowledgeable about the Palm Springs Modernism archetecture. A great buy at $25. Staff at the historical Society were very helpful and accommodating considering they had just worked hard on Modernism week.

Very good tour of Old Hollywood homes
Feb 2020
I'm glad I took this tour. It was a good overview of why Old Hollywood stars came to Palm Springs and seeing the cool modernist architecture of the city. Our guide was well informed and we saw a lot of homes. You get on a large bus and you're driven around the historic parts of the city and then out to the Windmill place to get a free date shake and a restroom break. Then back on the bus for the rest of the tour. $58 + tip felt a bit expensive.

A Bit Dull
Feb 2020
Disappointed. Long, informative but boring tour. What happened to tour of Sunnyland Estate and Frank Sinatra's home in Rancho Mirage? Suggest more stops. Windmill Market very nice, but the best date shakes are still Sheilds Date Garden!
