Who We Are

Gadabout Vacations has been helping travellers like you expand their horizons and make memories for more than 50 years! Since our humble beginnings in the Palm Springs Greyhound Bus Depot back in 1965, we have grown into the Coachella Valley's leading tour operator, offering day tours, multi-day tours, cruise packages and so much more. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Day Tours

Where is the pickup point for my day tour?
We pick up at three locations: In Palm Desert at Kohl's on Monterey & Dick Kelley; in Palm Springs at the Dollar Tree store on Vista Chino & Sunrise; and in Banning at the Sun Lakes Shopping Center near Carl's Junior. A new pickup point can be established in the Coachella Valley with a minimum of 12 persons.
What time is my pickup? What time do we get back?
Departure and return times may vary depending on tour activities. Your reservation agent can let you know the pickup and return times when you book your trip.
How long will we have at the destination?
Gadabout Vacations tour planners schedule your day for maximum enjoyment. The particulars of each tour vary, so your reservation agent can provide more information on your particular itinerary.


Multi-Day Tours

When do I get my tour documents and pickup time?
Your tour documents, luggage tags, and pickup schedule will be mailed out to you roughly two weeks prior to departure.
What is Gadabout Trip Protection?
Gadabout Trip Protection covers the cost of your trip if you have to cancel for a medical reason. With a doctor's note, you can get a full refund, even after final payment and up to the departure date.
If I don't have a travel partner, can you match me with someone to share a room?
Guests often want to take advantage of share-basis pricing by being matched with another single traveller. Gadabout is happy to connect single travelers looking for roommates, but travelers take full responsibility for the match. If you decide to change rooming arrangements once on the road, both you and your roommate will be charged an additional cost to cover the room swap.
What do B, L, & D mean?
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner! You can easily see which meals are included in your tour price by looking for these letters each day. Other meals will be your choice and your responsibility.
Is my home pickup included in the price?
Yes! Gadabout Vacations includes one home pickup per tour for customers within the shaded area below. Your home pickup will bring you to the central meeting point in the Ontario area, or to the airport for air tours.
