Modernism Week and PS Architecture Tours - Palm Springs’ leading providers of architectural tour services - have teamed up to provide the definitive modern architecture tour experience. Join us for a season-long series of carefully curated small group tours spearheaded by Tripadvisor’s top-rated architectural tour operator, Trevor O’Donnell, and a select team of knowledgeable professional guides. 

The perfect blend of Trevor’s intimate small van tours and Modernism Week’s popular double-decker coach tours, these tours are designed to offer an in-depth introduction to the city’s fascinating past and its rare concentration of fine modernist homes and buildings. No microphones. No headsets. Just a friendly traveling conversation about a remarkable city.

You’ll join up to 22 fellow architecture and design fans for an exploration of the city’s most beautiful neighborhoods, pausing along the way to learn about outstanding works of architecture by some of America’s most important modernist designers. You’ll also learn about Hollywood celebrities who made many of these homes famous, and enjoy back stories that add life, humor and awe to Palm Springs' amazing modernist legacy.

Modernism Week is a community supported nonprofit dedicated to education, preservation and appreciation of modernist architecture and design in Palm Springs. When you choose Architecture Tours by Modernism Week, you’re not only choosing the best, you’re helping to preserve and promote modern architecture for generations to come.
