Anyone who likes Frank Lloyd Wright's work should tour Taliesin West. Being his home and work space and not a building he deigned, you really get the feel of him.

The docents are very knowledgeable and it is still an active site for the teaching of unique architecture approaches. It remains a testament to FLW's influence in the world of architecture and the blending of architecture and the environment/nature.

FLW did such an incredible job blending Taliesin West with the Arizona desert, but that is what he does best! Our guide Char/Shar was very good - she spoke practically the entire time and knew so much background information. We took the 3 hour tour - it's very comprehensive but we are very interested in architecture and FLW so if... More

If you have an interest in Frank Lloyd Wright, make time for a visit here. There are insights to be had. This began as his winter camp - literally - and has evolved into much more.

It is one of Frank Lloyd Wrights masterpieces. Not to be missed when you visit Phoenix. Take a docent tour, about 90 minutes long but worth every minute. The docents are extremely knowledgable on the background of the origins and building of the property as well as the life and career of Frank Lloyd Wright. The building as well as... More

Everyone needs to go. I've been 3 times and I see something new each time. In the summer prepare to sweat, but it's worth it.

We did the three hour tour that included morning tea. The whole experience was excellent. The tour guide was fantastic and told us many interesting facts about Frank Lloyd Wright's connection with the Phoenix area and his passion for constructing buildings that sit well and complement their environment. The buildings we visited were great. This experience is well worth it.

Go and see where Frank Lloyd Wright arcitects trained. The historic house and grounds are amazing especially when you understand how they connect and compliment each other.
