I think both the reviewers who rate it well or poorly are right. It just depends what your interests are and the knowledge about Frank Lloyd Wright. I thought it was interesting to see the architecture and hear some thoughts about Wright's later period and his family. On the other hand the tour was more entertaining than informative.

We spent several hours at Taliesin West and it is easy to feel inspired. Frank could see how the environment would help inspire his students.

I should start by saying that I am fascinated by Frank Lloyd Wright and architecture in general. This is why my husband and I had to come take this tour. It was a bit pricy, but worth it when you consider that part of your ticket price goes toward the preservation of Taliesin West. I can't imagine the amount of... More

What an amazing place! I spent the afternoon here and would highly recommend the three hour tour. The detail of the tour was fascinating and I enjoyed every minute. Even if you are not a huge fan of Frank Lloyd Wright when the tour starts you will be when it is finished!

I have been a great admirer of FLW since my early days studying engineering and architecture. This working historical site (is still a qualified Architectural school at the graduate level) is fantastic and a must see for anyone who admires FLW. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable as his parents were students at Taliesin West and as such he had... More

Pretty interesting place. Frank Lloyd Wright designed, it has many eco features and the guides are knowledgeable about his life and what he created in Taliesin. Well worth the visit.
