I am SO GLAD I took this tour. With only two nights in Palm Springs and a passion for mid-century modern and desert architecture I needed help to get value out of the short time.

The reviews on TripAdvisor do not lie.

Kurt is clearly passionate about architecture and design, he was a wealth of knowledge and historical context. This was not a tour from a script - we chatted, I asked questions and he tailored information and the trip to me. I was lucky as I was the only one on an early morning tour - so essentially a private tour.

I would thoroughly recommend this tour - and would even do it again and take the other tours offered.

Kurt is an active member of Palm Springs preservation movement and runs other events in Palm Springs too.

Kurt and the PSModSquad are amazing. We did an architectural van tour and I loved every second. Kurt is personable, funny, and insanely knowledgable. I loved learning about the history of old Hollywood and Palm Springs and even the current events happening. From local starchitects and famous homes of celebrities to new construction beauties, Kurt showed us everything in 1.5 hours in a nice air conditioned van with nice bottled water. We're looking forward to booking an interior tour with Kurt very a soon. Thanks Kurt!

We took the Essential Palm Springs Tour which consisted of a 90 minute van tour viewing important mid century landmark buildings and residences. Kurt's extensive knowledge of the architects, their buildings and the people that lived and worked in them was exceptionally informative and entertaining. By the end of the tour we had a deeper understanding and appreciation of this important time in Palm Springs history. We're looking forward to taking another tour with Kurt next year!

My girlfriend and I did the Interiors Tour and it was the highlight of our trip to Palm Springs. Our tour guide, Kurt, took us into three mid century houses dotted in various neighborhoods throughout the city, all while providing a fascinating narrative about the history of the homes, the architects involved, and the design elements used. In addition to being incredibly knowledgable, Kurt's clear passion was infectious, and we learned a good amount while having a lot of fun. Highly recommend.

Rich,
It was my pleasure sharing with you the incredible built environment we have in Palm Springs. We have amazing houses, not all of them famous, but their design just as incredible - that is what I am excited to focus on with our Interiors Tour. I adore Palm Springs and I love sharing it with others. All my best, Kurt

We were in Palm Springs celebrating my Mother's 85th birthday. We booked a tour for four of us and Kurt was so accommodating.

The tour was amazing! He knowledge and enthusiasm is unsurpassed. We learned so much. Some of us were fans of Post Modern architecture and some weren't but by the end of the tour, we all had such an appreciation for the homes and buildings. Kurt had so much knowledge and the tour was so professional - never missed a beat and took his time. It was amazing, we highly recommend this tour!
