What You Can Expect

Palm Springs and Outlet Shopping Day Trip from Los Angeles

Enjoy Spectacular Views from the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

Early-morning pickup is available at the Los Angeles Farmers Market or the Four Points by Sheraton in Culver City. Once you’ve boarded your comfortable air-conditioned coach, relax on the approximate 120-mile (193-km) drive east to Palm Springs.

When you arrive, take a narrated city tour to learn about this luxurious desert city. Pass numerous golf courses and learn about famous celebrities, such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe and Barbara Streisand, who have called this place home.

The highlight of your time in Palm Springs is your ride aboard the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, which gives you amazing aerial views of the city and sprawling desert below, as well as the sheer cliffs of Chino Canyon.

After your ride, visit Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, a public desert botanical garden and zoo where you’ll experience first-hand how vibrant and alive the world's deserts really are. See animals from deserts around the world such as giraffes, zebras, mountain lions and coyotes, as well as lesser-known animals such as the Fennec fox with its distinctive large ears which serve to dissipate heat.

Back aboard the coach, make your way to El Paseo, known as the Rodeo Drive of Palm Desert. Break for lunch in this upscale shopping district (own expense) before driving past homes of Hollywood stars that are scattered throughout the valley.

Finally, arrive at Desert Hills Premium Outlets for some free time to shop. Snag great bargains on your favorite designers as you browse some of the 130 brand-name stores including Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Last Call by Nieman Marcus, Polo Ralph Lauren, Prada and Versace.

Once you’ve had your fill of shopping, relax on the drive back to Los Angeles.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

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.
