“Awesome Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

If you like mid century modern architecture, then this is the tour for you! The host is Michael Stern who is the co-author of a book on Julius Schulman's photography of Palm Springs architecture. Michael takes you on a wonderful journey through Palm Springs and provides a comprehensive narrative of the area, the people, the history and the homes. You see works by the great mid century modern architects such as Neutra, Lautner, Cody, Frey and the homes they designed for celebrities i.e. Sinatra. One of the highlights of the tour was being able to tour the interiors of properties designed by Cody and Wexler. Michael will also personalize a copy of his book and/or movie at the end of the tour. Our tour only had 6 people so it was very interactive and well worth what we paid. It was so great that we plan on doing it again next time we are in Palm Springs!
