This was our second tour with Jack and a great contrast to the first tour, which was a City tour of Palm Springs. Jack was very knowledgable on the flora and fauna of the Indian Canyons, and brought the whole experience to life for us. At our request, we also added an additional stop at the shops at El Paseo and enjoyed an al fresco lunch Special mention to the fabulous breakfast donuts Jack brought along for the trip too! Another excellent and thoroughly enjoyable excursion

Jack had a wealth of energy and information, and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. We came away with an appreciation of Palm Springs that was so different from the glitzy stores and golf courses. 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!

Jack was great. Is there anything he doesn't know about the area? - I don't think so. He gave us lots of information we simply wouldn't be able to find out on our own - including some colourful gossipy history! It was hot and he had thought of everything even cold towels to cool us down. I would highly recommend Jack.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Graham, Just wanted to Thank You and your family for booking your tour with Tours by Locals.

Thanks, Jack A Tours by locals of Palm Spring

Jack is punctual, friendly and filled with knowledge on Palm Springs. We learned so much about its history, including the important past and present role of native Americans, and it was interesting to learn about the construction boom underway. We plan on taking another tour with Jack when we return to Palm Springs. Definitely recommend.

Jack was an amazing tour guide! So knowledgable in all aspects of Palm Springs (new & old) & the surrounding areas. He toured us through town & told us the history of the area and he gave us a incredible hiking tour through the fault & palm oasis! My family learned so much we talked about it all evening! We had a great time & would definitely recommend Jack for your PS tours! We'll be seeing him on our next family trip out here for another tour!! Thanks Jack, for an unforgettable day! -The Allen family
