Full description
Get away from the big city and experience the carefree pleasure of Palm Springs on a full-day tour from Los Angeles.

Your day begins as you head east into the desert toward Palm Springs, formerly home to celebrities such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Liberace, Barbara Streisand and many more. Palm Springs plays host to 115 golf courses–some designed by Greg Norman–and 600 tennis courts, making it outdoor living at its best.

Ride aboard the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway up the sheer cliffs of Chino Canyon. Your 10-minute ride begins at the Valley Station, located at elevation 2,643 feet (806 meters). This trip ends at the Mountain Station, located at 8,516 feet (2,596 meters). Once at the top, no matter what the season, you can be certain to enjoy spectacular views.

Continue into Palm Springs to visit the Living Desert Zoo, an experience that will teach you just how vibrant and alive the desert really is.

Break for lunch in El Paseo, visiting the "Rodeo Drive" of the desert. Here there are many restaurants and shops, as well as plenty of opportunities for people watching. After lunch, embark on a panoramic tour of the homes of the Hollywood stars that are scattered throughout the valley.

Your last stop of the day is Desert Hills Premium Outlets, home to 130 stores of brand names such as: Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, Elie Tahari, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Last Call by Neiman Marcus, Loro Piana, Polo Ralph Lauren, Prada, Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Salvatore Ferragamo, Tod's, Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, and Zegna.
