Great tour of Palm Springs and the history of Hollywood actors from the 40's and 50's. Tour leader knew many interesting facts about the area and the famous people who were instrumental in building Palm Springs.

Our tour guide Rick was great. He made the tour interesting and fun. He gets 5 stars! I rated this average only because you don't really get to see much of the houses since they are behind gates, hedges, etc.

Excellent tour and information on green energy in Coachella valley. Our guide, Rich, was so informative and knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hours learning about wind turbine energy. Have a new appreciation for windmills ! Highly recommend this tour.
