Covid 19 Updates
California government officials decided in mid March 2020 that travel and tourism in the State were “non-essential” and to be closed. They have since re-opened, and then once again closed or severely modified the operation of such businesses on at least three occasions.
Celebrity Tours had planned to open, first in June, then September, and lastly November 6 only to once again be restricted to a point that made it impossible to begin. The expenses with planning and implementing these procedures while having zero income has become to restrictive to open fully at the current time. Our tour guides, drivers, office staff, and all others affiliated with us deserve better. It is the instability and uncertainty that most adversely effect us.
Our decision then is as follows. We will offer family, friends, co-workers, or other small group outings organized by parties independent of Celebrity Tours the opportunity to do the tour. Groups will be limited to 7 or less and will be charged as outlined on the Private Tour page of the site.
The private Tours are absolutely the very best tour of its kind in the valley and you will not be disappointed. Please read the description on the Private Tour page and contact us if interested.
About Palm Springs Celebrity Tours
Since the 1920s, Palm Springs has been Hollywood’s desert playground for celebrities to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of showbiz. The legendary “Two-Hour Rule” of Hollywood studios put Palm Springs on the map as a perfect getaway. Actors under contract had to be available within two hours from the studio just in case last-minute film/photo shoots had to occur.
Several celebrities stayed and purchased hideaway homes in Palm Springs, such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., George Hamilton, Bob Hope, Albert Einstein, Bing Crosby, Kirk Douglas, Cary Grant, and Jack Benny. Several ladies were frequent visitors, including Marilyn Monroe, Dinah Shore, Kitty Carlisle, Lily Tomlin, Elizabeth Taylor, and Susan Sommers.
Famous couples did rendezvous in Palm Springs, including Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, Steve Lawrence and Edye Gorme, Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner, Lucy and Desi, Elvis and Priscilla, David O. Selznick and Jennifer Jones, President Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower, President Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Walter and Lee Annenberg, and several others.
