      Great tour of Palm Springs
      Great tour about the local architecture and some history of the area. This is not a celebrity tour as such. Walking around the Twin Palm neighborhood was very informative.

      Wonderful!
      We took a tour when family was in town visiting. It was lovely to have the tour guide just to ourselves! He was engaging, charming and knowledgeable. We spent about two hours touring the architecturally significant Twin Palms neighborhood. So many beautiful mid-century homes and remarkable history. It was fun and informative! You needn't be an architect or a mid-century expert to enjoy or appreciate this tour. Thank you!

      A Gem of an MCM Tour
      We were searching for a fun activity for a group of friends in town for a long weekend and this tour was a perfect fit. The leisurely walk took us though a neighborhood filled with classic Mid-Century modern homes, many of which were in excellent condition and true to their original aesthetics. Our guide, Doug, was super-knowledgable with lots of details of the history, architecture and stories of the neighborhood along with Palm Springs' place in the history of the MCM home and architecture. The tour was an easy walk, well-paced and allowed plenty of time for pauses and questions. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in MCM architecture or just an interesting walk through a picturesque and historic neighborhood.

      Great experience for visitors and locals!
      Our non-profit board met in Minneapolis and we were looking for a fun team outing. Doug delivered! A comfortable vehicle, confident driver and endless sights and stories from around the Twin Cities. We all enjoyed it. Even the locals learned some new things!

      Minneapolis city tour
      Doug is amazing. Our tour was excellent! He accommodated for my husbands bad back and we did limited standing. In addition to the tour, he answered all of our questions about the city and other things to do. He contacted us ahead of time to find out our interests and customized our tour. I highly recommend Doug to anyone interested in touring Minneapolis.

      Amazing Minneapolis &St Paul tour.
      Douglas Kline’s tour was awesome!! He provided a historical, community focused and collaborative as well as engaging experience. His historic knowledge of the Twin Cities was outstanding! He captured the elements of the community that is quintessential Minnesota. He individualized our tour to our personal preferences and interests , which attracted us towards his tours. Douglas is an asset and excellent ambassador for the Twin Cities as well as Minnesota! We will definitely book tours with him for next visit to the area.

      First time to the Twin Cities
      This is the only way to see Minnesota’s top two cities!!! 😊 My husband and I had never been to Minnesota before and our guide Doug was a wealth of knowledge. He explaining the differences between St. Paul and Minneapolis as well additional sites to visit. We loved the local knowledge. It was a delight to be chauffeured by experienced driver Magdiel. Doug also had wonderful suggestions for lunch after our tour. We went to the Twin Cities Grill. Do not miss the opportunity to see these cities with Doug. He is the BEST!

    Doug was an exceptionally friendly and helpful host. He gave us wonderful tips about what to see and do during our stay in the Twin Cities, for which we’re grateful. Be sure to start your trip with him in order to benefit from his knowledge. The tour itself was a pleasant walk through the lovely neighborhoods Fitzgerald haunted. The information was pretty basic (especially considering the cost) and the delivery unpracticed, presumably because it’s a new tour. I would recommend Doug’s other tour on Summit Ave’s Victorian homes instead, as he seemed more knowledgeable about that subject and knows the area well. The Fitzgerald tour should be more polished in a year or so.

Please look me up when you are next in Minnesota. Thank you.

    My fiancé and I had a really lovely trek around F Scott Fitzgerald’s hometown of St. Paul MN. Doug was very knowledgeable of the intimate details of Scott’s family life, his upbringing in St. Paul, and the architecture of the homes in the surrounding neighborhoods.

    6 of us booked a tour with Doug after a get together where we talked about how Fitzgerald likely walked past one of our homes many times. We enjoyed the stories, facts and considerations Doug shared and felt like we were walking with a more knowledgeable friend.

    Thank you, Paul! I enjoyed our adventure and hope you and Debbie are warm back in California after your surprisingly cool spring week in Minnesota. You saw it all during our day together – yesterday’s history plus today’s new history unfolding around us as we toured. Very memorable. Thank you!
