Modern & More Bike Tours Palm Springs

Modern & More Bike Tours Palm Springs

star-5
This is a ~2 hour bike tour of three architecturally and historically significant residential neighborhoods in South Palm Springs. Bus tours have difficulty accessing these areas, because streets are somewhat narrow and it's hard for them to turn corners -- which makes it perfect for biking! Quiet streets, no hills, constant sunshine, and very little traffic make for a great ride for novices or expert cyclists alike. Please note that bike rental is NOT INCLUDED in this tour, and you're welcome to bring your own bikes. Discounted rentals available at Big Wheel Tours. Our tour begins and ends in their parking lot. We'll explore the neighborhoods of Deepwell Estates, Twin Palms, and Indian Canyons. We'll see great examples of homes designed by William Krisel, Charles DuBois, and developments created by the Alexander Construction Company. Of course there will be frequent stops for photos and to learn details about specific homes before returning to Big Wheel Tours to turn in our bikes.

Walking Tour of Nob Hill - Cable Cars, Luxury Hotels, French-Gothic Cathedral

Walking Tour of Nob Hill - Cable Cars, Luxury Hotels, French-Gothic Cathedral

star-5
When Robert Louis Stevenson visited San Francisco in 1879, he declared, "Nob Hill, the Hill of Palaces, must certainly be counted the best part of San Francisco. It is here that millionaires gathered together, vying with each other in display". My Nob Hill tour is a 2-hour walking photo-shoot tour that starts with a Cable Car ride and a visit to a French Gothic Cathedral and ends at the Top of the Mark on the 19th floor of the InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel for photographs and beverages at sunset. The eclectic history of Nob Hill includes: * The Gold Rush (not the San Francisco 49r cheerleaders) * The Silver Bonanza (not including Ben Cartwright, Ben, Hoss or Little Joe) * The Transcontinental Railroad * The 1906 Earthquake and Fire, and * A spectacular French-Gothic design Episcopal Cathedral that took nearly 40 years to build. The opportunities for photography are endless on Nob Hill!
