A nice way to spend a relaxing 2.5 hours, discovering the lives of the rich and famous, Hollywood living at its best! Very informative and interesting, however all the homes seemed to blend in with each other. Didn't know whose home was whose lol since we didn't go in, up or out, other than Cary Grant's home. Price could drop,... More

Went today on a great tour of Old Palm Springs that included the sights of many beautiful homes of the Hollywood set - both past and present. It was a very informative and interesting tour by a local who knew her way around the town and gave us a good overview of the golden era of Palm Springs. We sat... More

We took our 75 year old mother and 15 year old son on this tour. Our mother loved it but our son not so much. Most of the stars they talk about are stars of the past and did not mean anything to our son. They did give you an excellent history of Palm Springs which teenagers and older would... More

Ann is the gal in the know about all the celebrities especially Frank Sinatra. She gives a great tour and makes every effort to accommodate any requests. Toured the movie colony and las Palmas neighborhoods in addition to Frank's compound. The break includes a delicious date shake.

Loved this entertaining 3.5 hour tour. Not only did we see the doors and mail boxes but we learned about the geology, weather, windmills and water , plants and animals of the low and high desert life.

Great in-depth look at celebrity homes (exteriors only) coupled with history and entertaining anecdotes by Ann (the driver and guide). We were only 5 on the tour - virtually a private tour !

Palm Springs Celebrity Tours provided a knowledgeable van driver who made the tour very interesting. Enjoyed hearing about the local area and seeing the homes of the famous people. The tour group provided a free date shake as part of the tour, and it was very tasty. This area is known for growing dates. We also tasted several different kinds... More

We thought that our tour guide expounded a steady stream of information. His cadence was just the opposite of Jack Benny's (okay the opposite of Jack Black's, for those of the younger set). Jack really helped us to get a feel for the traditional Palm Springs and the new trends. Helpful, patient, and very knowledgeable. Moreover, he was physically demonstrative... More

Threw up from all the fast up's and down's, speeding turns on rough roads. Terrible tour. Better to buy a book of Palm Springs celebrity history.

Staying at a timeshare we were encouraged by the concierge to contact a certain tour company to see the homes of celebrities ...but after doing my usual Tripadvisor research I found Celebrity Tours to be highly rated and HALF the price of the other company. For an extra $10 we were picked up at our resort by Jack....and I can... More
