My group of 3 spent an amazing 3 hours with Jack as our guide through Palm Springs. Although everyone in my group has visited Palm Springs numerous times , each of us felt that we were discovering Palm Springs for the first time. Jack has a treasure chest of information about the history and architecture of the City as well as many humorous stories about the characters who helped mold Palm Springs into the magical and unique city it is today. I highly recommend taking this tour with Jack as your guide.

My wife and I loved this experience! This was our first experience with a private tour. Jack was knowledgeable, entertaining and attentive. He made the history of Palm Springs more real. I imagine a walking tour might go into more details. This one covered more ground (and was comfortable). We payed 347$ for our mini-van tour, so on the expensive side for us. Better if you can share the cost with others. Thank you Jack!

Understanding how the Native Americans -the Coahuila- lived in this area more than 2000 years ago was fascinating. In addition to being knowledgeable about history, Jack also pointed out native plants and talked about how they were used for food and medicine. Other nice touches like cold towels, water, dates!

Our group had a fantastic tour orchestrated by Jack in Palm Springs! Jack was delightful and so interesting. Our gathering of 12 ladies so appreciated his knowledge and entertaining facts about celebrities we all grew up with. The van he procured was perfect and our highlight was stopping to visit the refurbished Riviera Hotel. We loved the door to door service and the novelty of having our our own special guide who was very accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. We highly recommend Jack.

I thought Jack was smart and knowledgable. He showed us around many of the Mid Century modern areas in Palm Springs. He knew the lore and background of the movie stars and architects who built, worked, and played in PS. I was impressed as I am a native Californian and I know PS very well. My fiancé and I learned quite a bit on our trek around the city. Having lunch at Melvin's was very nice as well. One thing I may add is to see some of the unique pools in PS. Maybe PS Poolside. Thank you! It was awesome!

We enjoyed the morning viewing homes of Hollywood Stars and Historical Landmarks while Jack "painted the picture"of days gone by. It was interesting learning about how Hollywood influenced the demographics and architecture that Palm Springs is so well known for. Our tour ended with Jack treating us to wine and cheese at a fantastic hideaway. Jack was the Best Guide.

Jack is passionate abut Palm Springs and has ideas for desert program development that would bring us back for more. The architecture is what we asked for; the star tidbits - was a fascinating sidelight. Jack found us a wonderful hide-away inn/restaurant - Ingleside Inn & Melvyn's - where he extended our time together - our treat. We will recommend Tours by Locals and Melvyn's to others. If Jack lost a "point" it was for sometimes convoluted delivery and context, not a lack of enthusiasm for his subjects

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Roger, Thank You so much for your truthful and honest review. I can't express to you and how much fun I had that day, and Thank You for the wonderful lunch and company.
