"Great experience today.
We were lucky to get in one of Trevor's tours as we booked at the last minute. He is extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and considerate. Definitely a must do in Palm Springs."
"We had a fabulous time in Palm Springs but it wouldn't have been half the trip if we hadn't taken this tour with Trevor. It set the context for our entire visit and got us in the "Palm Springs" frame of mind. Trevor is conscientious, polite, personable and so interesting. I was worried that such a tour might be too touristy but it was in depth and entertaining. Thanks from Southern Alberta!!."
