Endorsed by the Desert Wind Energy Association, Palm Springs Windmill Tours is the only windmill tour that goes behind the gates onto a working windmill farm.
Explore historical exhibits of past machines and a photo gallery exploring the evolution of wind energy in the Coachella Valley. Tours are offered daily and last one and a half to two hours.
These majestic giant wind turbines are an iconic symbol as you arrive in the Coachella Valley. Our self-driving windmill tours allow you to explore the evolution of wind turbines on a private wind farm from the comfort of your own vehicle. The tour is curated by Randy Buckmaster, tour manager, with video and audio on a pre-loaded sanitized tablet which allows you to exit at each stop, get out and interact with the exhibits.
How it works:
Bookings are 15 minutes apart to allow for each car to get out at each stop to view the exhibit safely while practicing social distancing guidelines within our marked areas.
We ask that everyone arrive on time and be respectful of the car in front of you and in back of you to allow for optimal flow of the tour.
Once booked, a confirmation email is sent to you with instructions.
A sanitized, pre-loaded tablet with audio and video as well as a map will be given to you at check-in. The tour consists of 10 stops, with
2 additional optional stops off property.
After the tour, you will be sent a follow-up Quiz with BONUS information on wind turbines and wind energy!
