We had an amazing tour with Collin yesterday! He was a super host and shared his passion for the amazing sights we saw! Collin kept my 12 year old daughter engaged and curious about what she saw as we toured San Andreas fault and Painted Canyon. Our wonderful afternoon was capped off with a decadent date shake from Shields. I’ve been visiting Palm Springs for over 20 years and decided to something touristy to support small businesses... so glad I did!
