Take a Hike 

The landscape in and around Palm Springs inspires everyone to get outside, and one way to enjoy the outdoors is on a San Andreas Fault Jeep or Hiking Tour with Red Jeep Tours. Whether traveling on two feet or four wheels, both of these two- to three-hour tours will immerse your guests in the California desert while guides share about the region’s history, as well the geology, plants and animals found in the San Andreas fault zone. 


Go Mod 

Mid-century modern is alive and well in Palm Springs, and one way to learn more about the still-popular style of architecture is on a tour with Palm Springs Mod Squad. The three tours on offer focus on the local architects who shaped the look of Palm Springs, a look inside three of the mid-century mod homes and the last channels the Rat Pack with a martini, shaken, not stirred. Or, work with the PSMS team to customize a tour exclusively for your guests.
