Description

From soaring peaks to bustling shops, explore the best of Palm Springs and spend the afternoon browsing the incredible deals at Desert Hills Premium Outlets on this fun-filled excursion. Along the way, make a stop at an intriguing zoo and keep your eyes peeled for the homes of famous celebrities.

Enjoy convenient pickup from your Palm Springs hotel and drive past the sheer cliffs of Chino Canyon to reach an aerial tram ready to whisk you over 6,000 feet (1,829 m) to an incredible vista just shy of San Jacinto Peak. At the top, stroll around in the cool mountain air, snap a few photos, and let your guide point out distant sights visible from your lofty perch before you head back down.

Make your way to the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens to spend some leisure time getting up-close looks at desert-dwelling creatures and finding out how seemingly barren environments can sustain an abundant array of plants and animals.

Grab lunch in the El Paseo Shopping District to refuel before you embark on a sightseeing adventure past the former mansions of entertainment greats like Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, and Marilyn Monroe.

Wrap up your day with the chance to meander around the myriad of shops, boutiques, and stores that make up the Desert Hills Premium Outlets. Browse hard-to-find deals and big-name brands including Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, and Giorgio Armani before you hop back in your comfortable transportation and return to your hotel.

The guide was really nice and informative. However, when we arrived at the tram, I was surprised at how steep it was and I was too afraid to go up. As much as we wanted to go up, I couldn't. We told our driver and he did NOT purchase tickets for us. When I inquired later whether we would get a refund for the ticket price, the office told us "no". We are senior citizens and thought they could at least refund one of the ticket prices, as I suggested, but they didn't. They said this was a highlight of the tour and no refunds would be made.

The tour was great value and was jam packed wit fantastic experiences. My tour guide Jacob was very informative from the beggining to the end. I was lucky enough to be the only one on the tour so it was like a private tour. Palm Springs was fantastic and Jacob took me to Las Oalnas to see the distinct mid century homes of the area. The highlight was the gardens at the Zoo and the aerial tramway, Thanks Jacob and Empire job well done!

Aerial tramway was great with amazing views and great walks. Living Desert Zoo is beautifully maintained and certainly s must do although would have liked a bit more time there. Overall a great tour and would certainly recommend.
