Always wanted to know, now I do!
, Apr 2022
The history and what they now produce. Also, how large they are when you're up close! I always wanted to see them up close and learn more about what they can and can't do.

Wind turbines are incredible.. even more incredible up close! Super windy, cool experience! We’ll definitely be coming back for another visit.

Awesome! So glad you enjoyed the tour and the wind!
Very interesting
, Mar 2022
We enjoyed the historical video and the self driving tour but we would have enjoyed more detail, perhaps a model, of how the turbine / brake / propeller system works, the science behind blade optimization and the future vision for wind turbines - what areas of the world they could be expanded into, what weather geography is need for them to work etc.
The guides in the office...

The guides in the office were very very friendly and very informative. The movie was instructive. And the exhibit were amazing. Such a wonderful opportunity for the windfarm people to provide.

Great experience. Great value

Excellent educational tour. Such delightful owners. Learned so much about the history, technology, contributions to zero emissions energy of the future. Very nice tour. And don’t miss the date shakes at the little out of the way shop they suggested at the end of the tour. So much more to the experience than I would have imagined. Highly recommended to help visitors understand the area of the Cochella valley

Thank you for joining us...we are happy to offer our self-driving tours on our wind farm that allows a safe and fun experience :)
Great learning curve

All of it. Very informative especially the development phases to get to where we are today. Last two in first segment could do with blue barrels and numbering so people don't blow past them

Thanks, Peter. Since the last two stops are off 19th street, we can't put barrells, but our map clearly explains this as well as our guides. We appreciate your feedback :)
Nice little adventure

General knowledge of windmills and their development. Wish the map was a little better for going off property, but it added to the experience to try and figure it out.

Thank you for joining us and we will look at the map for improvements. We appreciate your feedback.

Windmill Education
, Mar 2021
We have driven to Palm Springs every year for so many years and talked about the many windmills. It was so refreshing to actually learn about them and see them up close. Would it have been better live and not during Covid, sure thing and we will come back for that as well. But the self driving tour with an instructive YouTube to go along is a great start.

Loved it! David was a great ‘host’ and the tour was really fun and educational for my 11 and 15 year old.

Interesting activity which doesn't take much time

Very interesting. David, who provided the in-person portion of the tour, was very personable and informative. The video was actually enjoyable and full of facts. The last 2 optional stops aren't really necessary - though the date milkshake was delicious.

Intersting Mills

We had a great time. Driving through offers a great way to see the windmills up close and there is a lot of information given during the tour, very interesting information especially in today's efforts to find other sources of clean energy.

Great Time

We were really surprised on how much fun we had on this tour. It was very informative and to stand at the base of these windmills is breathtaking. Topping off the tour with the best date milkshake ever was the best! Definitely recommend.

Thank you, Linda for joining us...we appreciate your review and hope to see you again soon! FYI--we do sell Gift Cards online as well. Happy Holidays!
A great tour, a must do for all
, Oct 2020
This was a great day. We have always wanted to do this. It’s the perfect thing to do during this COVID-19 social distancing period. You stay in your own car. They give you a sanitized iPad that has a narrator guiding you through each clearly marked stop. Very informative. It was incredible to be so close to the windmills. They are even larger than they look from I-10. We could stop and get out to look and take as many photos as we wanted. Got some great photos. Our guide David was incredible, so informative and friendly! It was a great afternoon. Highly recommend
