Review of The Legends & Icons Tour of Palm Springs
Pending review
We were a family group of seven ages 5 to 70, 6 adults and 1 child. It was Easter day and we were scheduled to take a group bike ride on our last day in Palm Springs. Unfortunately the temps were expected to go over 100 so we had to rethink our plans. We thought an air conditioned tour would be a good substitute. It was very difficult to find someone willing and able to to take us on a holiday, last minute and at the usual price.
We were about to give up when our concierge helped us contact Annette!
She saved our holiday. Her tour was interesting and entertaining. She included history, geography, social history, architecture and celebrity anecdotes. There was something to interest each one of the adults and there was enough variety outside the window to entertain a five year old while he colored. The length of the tour was just right.
I think Annette's knowledge, pace, demeanor, and willingness to please was what really made this tour and this holiday a success for us!

As was mentioned in other reviews, Annette is the best! She has an encyclopedia of knowledge when describing homes of the old time celebrities. I was expecting to see just the homes of the “rat pack” and had no ideas so many other famous stars had homes in Palm Springs. Many had multiple homes as a result of divorces! What an amazing era it must have been in those days! Annette also explained the history of the area and the various Indian tribes that lived here and still control much of the land. I highly recommend this tour - you’ll be happy you went!

The favorite part of the tour experience was Annette, our knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide who loves her town and loves to share it with travelers. We loved the Hollywood Colony, the old original Palm Springs locales, and the history of the area. The van was modern, super clean and super comfortable.

We had a great time. Our guide was punctual, professional, knowledgeable and had a fun sense of humor. As we passed the double decker tour buses, we were so grateful to be on this tour, as it felt like a private tour. Book this tour. You won't regret it!

My wife and I did this tour last year, but brought other family members along this time. Annette was the tour guide this time and did a great job. She knew her stuff- the town, the history, the architecture, as well as who lived where. I am not a “celebrity impressed” guy, but this tour was well worth the time and money, and she did well.

A very interesting & insightful experience. Annette was extremely knowledgeable about topics viewed & discussed. Amazing how many Hollywood stars own(ed) homes in PS, many very close to each other. A broad variety of topics covered. A worthwhile tour; the time flies by.

Was very disappointed by the lack of discretion and poor judgement of the tour guide. Made many, many racist and inappropriate comments. Called homeless people “mental”, told stories about illegal immigrants getting free healthcare while her friends have to pay, said that “Indians” were all bad drivers. I could go on and on. Was very unprofessional and made us deeply uncomfortable and unfortunately coloured the whole experience
