We enjoyed our time in Palm Springs, it's worth visiting this once, just to experience the California desert. Some of the sights are hit and miss. Going up in the mountain to look at the view was fantastic. The living desert zoo didn't really live up to our expectation, but that's mainly because it was over 100 F in Palm Springs on that day and a lot of the animals were hiding. The aerial tram provides a splendid view of the desert. Driving around the city was very interesting as well, but for a lot of the big and expensive home, they are so well protected that it's hard to see them completely. The outlet shopping was alright, although it was maybe a little too long for us, we would of rather spend more time at the various sights of Palm Springs and maybe cut the shopping time in half. Our tour guide Richard, was a great source of information and a total class act, he made the tour that much more enjoyable.

Palm Springs was lovely. Our driver/guide was fantastic, informative and very accommodating. We didn't think the outlet shopping was as good as other premium outlets we have been to in the USA. Overall a brilliant day and I would definitely go back to Palm Springs. The oasis in the middle of the desert.

This was a great tour with a lot of different activities packed into the one day. I was surprised that they ran the tour even though i was the only person on it that day. Was able to explore the different sites at my own pace and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about all the tour locations as well as america as a whole and made the entire experience very enjoyable and helped me understand about the places we were visiting. would highly recommend this trip.
