We went on the Palm Canyon tour and had a wonderful time. Our guide, Kevin, was amazing and added lots of information on the history of Palm Springs as well as the restaurants. A great way to spend 3 hours.

My husband and I loved the Desert Tasty Tour on El Paseo hosted by Kay this last week. Kay took us to six different places over a 3-hour period. The food, drinks, company (there was one other couple on the tour), and information that Kay shared about the local area was just perfect! Each place was extremely accommodating to our... More

Just had the El Paseo good tour today. Our guide Laurie was very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Highly recommend her as a guide. Food choices were excellent. There was so much food we had a hard time finishing it all. Went to some "mostly locals" in addition to some high end places ending up at Wolfgang Picks place. Would definitely... More

My husband and I loved the tour, the food was delicious and our great guide Laurie provided so much interesting information about the history of Palm Desert and the restaurants we visited. I recommend to take the tour at the beginning of your vacation, this way you have the chance to return to your favorite restaurants during your stay.
