We recently visited Taliesin West As a group with the Porsche Club of America - Southern Arizona Region and all I can say is WOW! I was born and raised in Tucson and have wanted to see this treasure for most of my 59 years. This club outing finally gave me the excuse I needed and I must say it... More

Upon arriving to the location, I did not make an online reservation as it was a last minute decision. I advised the woman at the counter that I would like to tour the house- she "snorted" at me that it is not just a house, but a compound, a school and so much more. They only offered guided tours, which... More

While in Scottsdale, I made time to go and tour Taliesin West, the winter home of Frank Lloyd Wright. I had heard about his desert oasis since college, and now was able to tour it. It was well worth the time if you are interested in architecture or history. Our tour guide was excellent and knew everything about the home.... More

Fantastic tour with great insight and knowledge provided by the guide. 90 minute tour turned into 2 full hours. Very enjoyable and well worth the time.

We really enjoyed the guided tour. Even if self-guided tours had been available, guided tours give so much more, and our guide (an older woman from Flagstaff) was the greatest, not only was she knowledgable but she also kept the group together and spoke very clearly. Don't forget to exchange your on-line receipt for tour passes in the book store... More

If you are ever in Phoenix you need to make time to visit Tailiesin West. This was Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home. It is amazing to see the genius of this architect! It is still in use by students.

If you are interested in architecture, this is a definite stop when in the Valley. Amazing that Wright had the vision to create such a masterpiece in the middle of nowhere and in the desert - without AC! Tours are conducted by very knowledgeable guides, you really get a comprehensive idea of how things were constructed, why there were done... More

Interesting tour of Wright's home and education center in the desert. Beautiful setting. Chose a day that isn't too warm, as there is a lot of outdoor walking.

Our group of 4 had purchased tickets ($30) online for a Sunday tour, probably the best way to go if there are more than 2 people. I believe each 1 1/2 hour tour group of around 15 people leaves every 15 minutes. I felt this tour offered so much more than the one I took at Taliesin East in Spring... More
