Annette, our guide/driver made the tour so enjoyable with her many anecdotes and little known information about Palm Springs and the people who lived there. Great afternoon. Learned a lot.

Sherri_H

Learning about how Palm Springs came to be and the rich and famous residents of the area. Our driver, Annette, was very friendly, flexible, and knowledgeable.

Sandy_K

Celebrity back stories. Knowledge about the area. Good recommendations. Guide had a fun personality.

Gwendolyn_C

Our guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. It would have been nice to have been able to go inside or walk around a legendary property instead of staying in the vehicle the entire time. There were some laminated pictures shown to us by the driver but difficult to see in the back seats. I suggest copies to distribute. Overall a very nice excursion.

Taffey_M

Our tour guide Annette was very enthusiastic and entertaining. She explained the sites of interest and added personal notes which made the experience more notable. She also showed us pictures of what places used to look like which added another layer of interest. Overall, it was a great tour and one that will we definitely recommend to friends. A big thumbs up!

The tour guide was informative and funny which made for a most enjoyable tour. We learned so much about Palm Springs history. We probably will take the tour again in the future as there was a huge amount of interesting information.

The Legends and Icons Tour was a real highlight of our trip to Palm Springs. Special tip-of-the-hat to Deon in the front office. We had to switch the date of our tour so we phoned her and she handled everything smoothly, with good cheer. Service above and beyond thge call of duty. The tour itself took us through old Palm Springs, to the homes of stars of a bygone era. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, filled with anecdotes and fun facts about the homes we passed. You will be told to meet in an alley next to a parking garage near the corner of S Indian Canyon Drive and Baristo Rd. Don't be freaked out at what might seem a sketchy location (alley! parking garage!). You will easily spot the Five Stars Adventure Tours bus. We had a really fun couple of hours. It was a great way to get a handle on the city.

Leslie_O

So much interesting information was shared, not only about the stars, but also about the history and geography of Palm Springs. The tour guide was engaging and fun!
