See Palm Springs with the Ambassador of Americana! Humorist and tour guide extraordinaire, Charles Phoenix, will lead you on an entertaining adventure atop a double decker, open air bus. With his unbridled enthusiasm, delightful design expertise and keen eye for oddball detail, Charles’ spirited tour highlights exterior views of dozens of spectacular Midcentury Modern estates and homes, commercial and civic buildings, retro neighborhoods and other treasures that have made Palm Springs world famous. Peer over the walls and hedges of landmark homes and hotels in legendary neighborhoods, including Vista Las Palmas, The Movie Colony, Twin Palms and more. Marvel at Elvis’ “House of Tomorrow” hideaway and the famed “Twin Palms” estate of Frank Sinatra. Charles also shares his favorite local restaurants, resorts, bars, boutiques and other not to be missed local attractions in Palm Springs.

Charles Phoenix is an entertainer, tour guide, food crafter and author. His live slide show performances, “field trip” tours, “test kitchen” creations, coffee table books and social media celebrate classic and kitschy American life and style, past and present.
