Reviewed 31 May 2018

Touring the modern homes was definitely the highlight. Price points from $900K to almost $4 million. Good information on the area and highlights of the homes he drove us by.

I had registered for the tour but it was cancelled less than an hour beforehand - advise checking in the day before to confirm. I was sitting at the A&D museum waiting for the tour to start when I received the email.

We took a tour with Robert Imber as part of a group at a conference. He is extremely knowledgeable about the architecture and is a Who's Who of Palm Springs. My husband, who is an architect, was very impressed with the tour and the insights that Robert offered. Robert is also very funny and we had a lot of laughs along the way. The tour was about 3.5-4 hours long and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I highly recommend Robert as a tour guide.

I love mid-century architecture and my boyfriend came along for the ride. It turned out to be not only my favorite activity we did in Palm Springs but his as well! That's how knowledgeable Robert is an how interesting this tour is.

I agree with other reviewers that you should try to book this tour at the beginning of your time in Palm Springs so that you have better context for exploring the city on your own afterward.

We also booked the afternoon slot, which turned out to be a great idea since you're in an air conditioned van during the hottest part of the day.
