About Your Tour
Palm Springs has one of the largest concentrations of mid-century modern architecture in the world, but knowing where to look and understanding the homes and buildings in context can be a challenge. On a personal driving tour with Trevor, you'll ride in air-conditioned comfort with no more than five guests to see and learn about hundreds of homes and buildings by extraordinary modernist architects. It's an in-depth exploration of an amazing city featuring fascinating information about history, architecture and the Hollywood glamour years of the 1940s, 50s and 60s that made Palm Springs famous.
"It was a wonderful tour, filled with great history not only about the architecture and homes, but also of Palm Springs and the people that made mid-century modern architecture such a integral part of the landscape.

Trevor fell in love with Palm Springs when he restored a classic 1958 post & beam in the Deepwell neighborhood (2011 PS ModCom Fall Home Tour) and is currently working on a 1952 house that was home to architect Richard Harrison, one of Palm Springs most celebrated modernists. Today Trevor shares his passion for architecture and deep knowledge of Palm Springs history and design with visiting architects, design professionals, modernism enthusiasts and curious visitors from all over the world.
"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. $85 is a steal. Thanks from Southern Alberta!!."
