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.
Jack was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the extraordinary modern architecture of Palm Springs. We covered a lot of buildings. I just wish I took more time to stop and take photos!

Jack really showed off Palm Springs and I am really looking forward to visiting this great town again!. My husband and I really were amazed by how much Jack knew about the history, the architecture and the celebrities. We saw a lot of iconic homes and buildings. Also, Jack has a great sense of humor and was a great host/guide. He provided us with refreshments and snacks. I would encourage anyone coming to Palm Springs, especially for the first time (like I did), to book a private tour with Jack.

Jack is extremely knowledgeable. We talked about architecture, Salton Sea, windmills, movie stars, regional Indian tribes, local commerce, light pollution, and the return of fine dining. Any subject related to the Palm Springs area (or the valley) is his specialty. A great tour.

My friend and I really enjoyed our tour of mid century Palm Springs with Jack. We got to see so much more up close and personal than on a large tour bus/group. He even took us into some new modern mid century show condos that blew my mind. He also took us to see "rat psck" hangout and gourmet restaurant, Melvyns. We went back for dinner the following night and they remembered us being with Jack and treated like Princesses! Thanks Jack for giving us an insiders view of Palm Springs!

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!
