Unfortunately, our experience was that we paid over $100 for our family to ride around in an old beat-up van (not a van really designed for sight-seeing) with a single speaker PA that the back row couldn't even hear. We drove around for 90 minutes...More

Four couples/friends met our bus at the S. Indian Canyon Dr. location for the morning wind farm tour. Only one other couple joined us which made our excursion almost like a private tour! From the beginning, it was clear our tour guide Sandy was going...More

We took the "Best of the Best" windfarm tours with Richard as our guide. During this two hour tour in a van, we learned a bit about Palm Springs' history and geology, why the pass along I-10 is a uniquely good wind resource, and learned...More

We were looking forward to this windmill tour with our local travel expert Francoise Rhodes. My husband and I had taken a tour maybe 10 years ago and remembered being awestruck by the giant structures. This tour however was disappointing in that we rarely got...More

We did the Windmill tour on a day where there was a wind advisory in the area. For some reason our teens really enjoyed being whipped around in the wind! This tour was quite interesting and informative. Seeing the wind turbines up close and learning...More
