For more than 20 years, Five Star Adventures has been dedicated to keeping the Golden Era of Palm Springs and Hollywood alive with fascinating tours and powerhouse events. As the concierges’ first choice for discerning travelers, our premier sightseeing tours and events have been educating and entertaining visitors with the history of Palm Springs, and the inside stories of the many movie stars who made Palm Springs their “getaway” from Hollywood. The popular, daily “Legends and Icons Tour,” hosted in Mercedes Benz coaches, shows more than 50 homes and offers the unique opportunity for guest to get out and visit the private estate nicknamed “The Rat Pack Hideaway,” movie location of Behind the Candelabra.” “A Toast To The Stars,” the weekly variety show and dinner done during “season,” is an irresistible, non-stop, energetic evening of music mixed with Palm Springs and Hollywood history, trivia and dish.

Thank you for your great review! Ruta Lee is indeed every inch the glamorous movie star. We much appreciate your praise for our house trio, Francesca, Gilmore and Bryan. They are fun filled, musical powerhouses, carrying the evening and framing the guest star.
