  • This was a great day. The only thing I'd change is maybe to have some time to walk round Palm Springs instead of seeing it mostly from the bus. Richard was a great guide and had a lot of knowledge of the area and the history. The outlets were great, but you'd need a whole day to get to all the shops. A really enjoyable day!

  • Palm Springs tour was awesome. What a great experience in the air tram at Mt. San Jacinto. There were only two of us plus tour guide on the tour. Now that was too cool. It was almost like a private tour. The zoo was a lot of fun too. I took the opportunity to feed the giraffe and have pictures taken. Extremely enjoyable.

    If someone has trouble walking, make certain you take advantage of the tram at the zoo 6. It does not tour the zoo, just takes you to certain stops that will save you a few steps and you can get on and off as much as you like. At beautiful Mt. San Jacinto you can walk a paved trail and it is a bit steep going up and down. On the sky tram at the mountain, passengers stand and if you don't have great balance there are a couple of short benches for someone to sit. It is a little difficult to hold on to the railings because the floor rotates.

    Overall this was an outstanding tour. and I highly recommend it.

  • Would have like to see more mid century homes but over all and excellent day!

  • Jacob did a great job as tour guide with a vast knowledge of Palm Springs. Was a great day trip. Tramway and Living Desert Park were two highlights. Highly recommended.

  • We could barely understand our guide!! we had a German couple with us and they had the same problem.
    we tried to avoid any questions or comments as we could rarely understand his reply...
    The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway was the best part of this tour with amazing views, the Desert Zoo and Gardens were unbearably hot, but we got some nice deals from the Outlet.

  • Awesome drive with Giovanni!

  • The tour was very interesting and Giovanni made it really fun and exciting for us. We learned the history behind the Palm Springs area and got great pictures and landscape sightseeing from the mountain tops. As we were a small group, he even let us a while longer at the mall in the afternoon to enjoy our shopping time before going back to LA. Highly recommendable if you want to enjoy an interesting and unique place as Palm Springs!

  • Fantastic day. The zoo and the tramway were awesome and Giavanni was the perfect guide. He had Lots of knowledge of the area and made the journey so interesting. Will definitely recommend this tour.

  • One of the most amazing sight in LA. My tour guide Richard and Guivanni were informative and friendly. Worth going to Palm Springs for its view.

  • This tour was the highlight of our US trip! Palm Springs is breath taking ! And this tour was great value for the quality. The tour guide Richard was great ! Extremely informative, never a dull moment on this tour... Just so much Beauty to admire. Great job Richard and driver Sam. I will book again
