One day docent-led tour: Experience a comprehensive selection of Desert X artworks in a single day. This tour offers a curated selection of condensed highlights from the exhibition, customized to fit specific group preferences and interests. Approximate duration of the tour can be up to five hours for the day. Each tour begins with a warm greeting from a Desert X representative who will provide insights and guide you through each installation.

Two-day docent-led tour: Plan a two-day experience to see the complete Desert X exhibition. Your group will have the opportunity to visit all the artworks scattered across the Coachella Valley. The exhibition spans the entire valley, and driving time between sculptures may vary. Approximate duration of the tour can be up to five hours per day. We highly recommend a two-day tour to ensure you can experience the entire exhibition and immerse yourself in the cultural landscape of the Coachella Valley.

Please note that transportation, lodging, and dining services are not included in the tour package. Additionally, group tours must be scheduled a minimum of four weeks in advance and based on availability.

Desert X is mostly an outdoor exhibition, and temperatures in the desert can fluctuate to extremes at times. As such, it’s essential to come prepared with appropriate clothing and sun protection. Walking is required in most cases to access the artworks, so wearing comfortable shoes is highly recommended. If any members of your group have specific accommodation needs, we are more than happy to work with you to ensure everyone can enjoy the experience fully. Review our FAQ here.
