About This Tour
Take a trip back in time and explore architectural modernism as defined by some of the most definitive architects of the day.
This tour will takes you on a trip around Palm Springs and showcases hidden modernist gems (like a humble little gas station) and opulent midcentury masterpieces.
All of our audio tours are self-guided, which means you can set the pace yourself. We invite you to pause the tour whenever you want to stop and take a look around at the beauty that surrounds you.
How Our Tours Work:
Our tours are multi-media audio and photographic tours that will take you on a self-driving route. Tours will need Wi-Fi or data as they run online. At this time they are not downloadable for offline use. (We're working on it!)
As an aside, you can purchase or rent portable Wi-Fi Hotspots like the Skyroam device which will allow you to access data for much less than traditional cell phone roaming rates. (We're looking at you, Canada!) Read about that option on this blog, where there's also a promo code for a discount on the device.
Tours run in a specific order, but do allow for you to stop and make deviations along the way. To take the tour, first listen to the tour introduction and then you'll make your way to the first stop. Once there, you'll be able to listen to tour audio on your phone, tablet or car speakers, read the written description, and look at photos. Of course, you'll be parked in front of each destination too, to be able to see it for yourself. Our tours include interior photos, historical photos and documents and many historical facts and fascinating stories. Once you've finished at each stop, you'll have instructions on where to go next.
