I wanted to go to this shopping outlet since a long time as this was the best outlet having lots of top brands. I am not fond of shopping, but as it was a great opportunity, did some nice shopping, enjoying discount prices. There were Prada, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Giogio Armani, and many more names. The places we visited the restaurants were also fascinating. I loved the spectacular views all through our tour. I recommend 5 stars for everything in this tour was commendable. The tour guide gave us the required information and also helped us with essential details. Good tour.
We took the day tour and it was not disappointing. There were many stops on this one day tour that gave us an unimaginable and best experience. The tour guide was a great guy. He was very knowledgeable and nice. The bus was luxurious and comfortable that after the entire tour, there was no stress of traveling. The aerial tram ride was really enjoyable and was the first time for us to experience. We were scared initially, but in no minutes the over views captured us and we got immersed into the surrounding beauty. The lunch was also good, overall a good tour.
I must say this tour was one of the best and should compliment for it including the premium outlet. The advantage is that the brands were all top most famous brands available with discounts were making me breathless. I was thrilled, amazed, excited, tempted, that all my emotions together, almost choked me. The views from the Aerial Tramway were superb, definitely beautiful. The other places, the celebrities’ homes were also good. The only disappointing fact was these outlets are always highly crowded and I dislike going through crowds. The bus operators could have made some arrangement so that we do shopping minus the crowd.
I took to this tour during my holidays and got the most deserved break. The tour was just for a day and yet I was happy as they took us visiting so many places. I was highly thrilled as we took to celebrities’ homes, but the most disappointing fact was we could not see even one celebrity. That was like going to see the lavish houses externally. Of course, it was beautiful, but if we saw even one glimpse of a celebrity, it would have been like mission accomplished. The food court at the shopping place nearby was good to sit; I did not do any shopping.
A fair tour. I was not very happy as the outlets though were in plenty and offered discounts, i could not find proper size. This is due to heavy crowd that everything just gets sold off. I was disappointed as i hardly bought anything and had come prepared for a great shopping at this outlet. The location of this shopping outlet was amazing, but the biggest nuisance was that the parking lots were under construction and so we had to walk from and to the parking space. The bargain is good here and the choices are fantastic. I give 3 stars.
This 1 day tour was an attempt to give time to my teenage children. They started with a scowling face, but as time passed and they saw their favorite celebrities’ homes into Palm Springs, they were thrilled. The bus tour was luckily comfortable or else I would have lost this attempt. The food was good and the tour to Hollywood stars scattered around the valley was amazing. The little disappointing was we could not see any stars or their house interiors. It was like peep from the cage and gaze around. Yet the shopping attempt was pleasing to cover up all the others.
