I have recommended him to a few friends already. It is a great walk back through history learning about the... More

Kirk Bridgman led us on a thoroughly enjoyable 2 1/2 hour walking tour of the Old Las Palmas neighborhood, a beautiful residential area with numerous examples of mid-century residential architecture. The number of celebrities and iconic personalities who have lived in this enclave are too numerous to mention here, but Kirk knows them all. His knowledge of the social, political... More

Captain Kirk was a fabulous guide! Provided a ton of history on the city of Palm Springs as well as the stars that have lived here. We didn't once feel rushed, as Kirk patiently answered all of our questions. Highly recommend this tour!

I have been to Palm Springs many times but never done a historical tour and it was such an eyeopener to the city's crazy past! Kirk was fun and full of personality and very knowledgable. Highly recommend it and advise you start early in the morning as it gets very hot.

Kirk is a fountain of Knowledge. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our morning stroll through the historic neighborhood of Old Palm Springs with "Captain" Kirk. Kirk provides context so that his visitors understand what they are looking at. His maximum tour size is four visitors so there is lots of time for Q and A. You will learn about... More

Kirk's walking tour was the highlight of our trip. He really brought the history of Palm Springs alive. The walking and pace of information was perfect. You will understand so much more about the current Palm Springs culture and architecture after this tour. 5 star rating :)

A friend checked this tour out and it came highly recommended so three of us spent a wonderful Saturday morning with Kirk and Patrick. We strolled as we listened to Kirk entertain us with facts and stories of the fabulous homes of numerous stars of now and in the past 90 years. Fascinating. Pleasant pace. Breeze. Sunshine. Pictures galore. Well... More
