Au programme

This is a small group 2+ hour bike tour of 3 architecturally/historically significant neighborhoods in South Palm Springs, lead by either myself or my expert assistant guide, Tim. You'll be biking on quiet streets, no hills, constant sunshine, & very little traffic. All of which makes for a great ride for novices or expert cyclists alike.

Note: Bikes are NOT INCLUDED, so please bring your own, or you may rent from Big Wheel Tours on S Palm Canyon.

Leaving from their parking lot, we’ll explore the neighborhoods of Deepwell Estates, Twin Palms, & Indian Canyons. We’ll see great examples of homes designed by Krisel, Wexler, Eichler, & built by the Alexander Construction Company. We'll also see the homes of some Hollywood celebrities. We’ll stop at specific homes to discuss their architectural & historical details, but you're encouraged to stop anywhere along the way to take photos. As a result, duration can vary, but it's usually just over 2 hours.

Please note that this tour is designed for serious architecture and history fans, with a lot of academic-level information and detail. It may not be the most enjoyable tour for some children.

COVID Safety Update: Masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated guests while biking outdoors. Please wear a mask while inside Big Wheel Tours. Both Brennan and Tim have been fully vaccinated!

Howdy! I’m Brennan. I am a trained Modernism Week Architecture Tour Guide in Palm Springs, & I also do volunteer tours for PS ModCom. My expert assistant tour guide is Tim. I've been coming to the desert for many years, & I've immersed myself in the history & culture of this town & its unique midcentury architecture. I bought a 1963 William Krisel-designed home a few years ago & gave it a new life as a bright, modernest remodeled space that was featured in HGTV Magazine. I just love this town, & I want to share it with you!

Regarding that pesky COVID-19, rest assured that we both have been fully vaccinated. Also, we've taken the "Palm Springs Safer Together, Greater Together" destination pledge to show that our commitment to the safety of visitors, residents & employees is our top priority. More info at gpsPLEDGE.com

The tour with Brennan was a highlight of our trip to Palm Springs. Brennan's style fit well with our interests, covering design, architecture, and history. Plus he's just a very interesting person with great stories to tell. I will be recommending this tour to anybody I know who is visiting Palm Springs.

Brennan was AMAZING!!! The bike ride was so educational and full of history. Made us all feel a part of elegance and golden age of Hollywood!!! It was really like a Viking River cruise only on wheels and much more affordable 😉 Would totally do it again next time we are in Palm Springs!!!

Captivating and interesting visit of Palm Springs architectural houses and neighborhoods , Brennan learned us many things about the history and the American way of living of the many stars that made Palm Springs so famous. He showed us many pictures of home interiors he had the opportunity to visit himself. We highly recommend to book a tour instead of doing it by your own , you will save time and learn much more !

This tour was a highlight of our stay in Indio/Palm Springs. Brennan is knowledgable, and has a great personality. The tour is well paced, and in a great location to stop for breakfast, lunch, cocktails or ice cream afterwards!

Tim was a great guide. He provided proper insight into the home designs and how they tie to Palm Springs history. The riding itself is very easy and safe. The whole tour is a delight on the eyes, with the mountains surrounding the homes.

Would highly recommend this tour. I did the 8:30AM tour and the weather was perfect, cool and breezy. Biking was leisurely and Brennan was an excellent tour guide - very informative and a real local. Great for single folks or a group!
