Trevor gave us a lively, informative tour of the history of mid century modern homes in Palm springs. We visited many interesting neighborhoods and he gave us a lot of good information. Worth the time to understand the unique architectural history. Thanks, Trevor.
Trevor is an engaging, informative tour guide. He covered so much territory in the nearly three hour tour, and my friend and I had a great time. We were taken to areas of Palm Springs I didn't know existed, and he made me love this...More
My daughter loves mid century so she arranged for this tour for our visit. I'm usually not a tour type person, but this was fabulous. I am a history buff and I had so many questions about Palm Springs. Trevor answered them all before I...More
We recently visited Palm Springs with friends who arranged this most interesting tour and were so glad they did. It was nearly 3 hrs. and didn't seem long at all. In fact, I was very sorry when it ended. Trevor has a great deal of...More

I'll admit that my wife and I are kind of tour snobs. And Trevor gave one of the top tours we've ever done. We love mid-century modern, and since PS is the largest concentration of that style in US, we had to go. He shared...More
Everyone who goes to Palm Springs with a love for architecture needs to go on this tour with Trevor. His knowledge is boundless and he is engaging and super-friendly. I'm a huge fan of his tour and intend to tell all my friends.
My husband and I loved this tour of mid-century modern homes. Trevor was so knowledgeable but never boring. The tour really gave us first-timers to the area a great feel for the time. Highly recommend!
This was a fantastic tour. Trevor is very professional and engaging. He has a rich knowledge of the designers during this time, and how the architectural developments impacted the Palm Springs culture. The smaller, intimate size of this tour makes it a great option for...More

The tour leaves from a cute modern store in the design district of Palm Springs. We had a car so I don't know about cabs. The man that who owns the company lives in the area so if you're staying in the heart of Palm Springs maybe he would pick you up. I can't remember exactly how much it cost but I will say we thought it was well worth the money. It's basically a private tour. He only takes six people. We only had four in our group but it was off season. I think we paid cash the day of the tour but not totally sure. There's a bathroom in the store where you start the tour. He gives you cold bottled water to start the tour. You get a discount the day of the tour at the store where the tour starts and we bought some nice photography books of Palm Springs architecture at a discount. Hope this helps!
