“Super informative and interesting!”

“The 90 minutes flew by! Kurt is very engaging and knowledgable… I’m relatively familiar with much of the architecture in Palm Springs but every stop had something new that I didn’t know.”

—Ace and Spade, Vancouver, Canada

“Great Tour—Great Tour Guide!”

“The tour was perfectly paced so we stayed very engaged, but also very well timed so we could take in all the fantastic sights and information. Kurt’s knowledge of the Palm Springs area, its history, and his insights on the ‘story behind the story’ really makes you feel as though you ‘lived’ the experience as opposed to just passing through.”

—David C., Westlake Village, CA
