As wife of a former architect, we appreciated the wonderful site, brilliant design, and the excellent tour.
Frank Lloyd Wright was the father of organic architecture, and a visit to his winter home and experimental studio in Scottsdale is not to be missed. Warning: Make reservations in advance to avoid disappointment. We were able to reserve a spot on the 11:00 a.m. "Insights" tour the night before and I'm glad we did, as people who arrived at... More
Don't be misled by my title. Visiting Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural masterpiece is very exciting. This home was a summer home for Mr. Wright. The home has original furnishings from the 1930's. Of particular note is the way this large home is laid out to take full advantage of its site in the desert. Triangular shapes protrude everywhere and seemingly... More
The 90 minute tour was well structured, the Guide was quite knowledgeable and informed about the House and about Wright. The tour allows close up viewing of the house, interior rooms, Wright's office, his bedroom, sitting rooms, etc. Photo's are allowed except in one or two rooms. You will come away with a complete sense of Frank Lloyd Wright, his... More

Well worth the visit. The 90 minute tour was an informative and interesting look into Frank Lloyd Wright, his talent, his mind, his theory, as well as what the concept was behind his winter home in the Arizona desert.
This is an amazing place to visit. We took the 90 minute indoor/outdoor tour. Frank Lloyd Wright was a visionary about selecting this site. The place is filled with Wright's unique simple functional bright color designed furniture. The grounds are very impressive. I had no idea what to expect. It is a work of art.
Taliesin West was fascinating and we enjoyed our tour very much. I learned alot about Frank Lloyd Wright and his style of design. However, be forewarned: you can't just go and take a look around. You have to take a tour. And there is not much time to "linger" at any of the spots as the tour guide clearly wants... More
Do not miss this great learning experience at a dream location. The rich history of Mr. Wright unfolds through a 90 minute tour. (There are other options for viewing this location). This home and teaching environment which is still an educational program is amazing. The Frank Lloyd Wright building with hallmark creative designs thrill the viewer. This is a great... More
I have been to Taliesin West before and taken the 3 hour behind the scenes tour which I would highly recommend. I am not in the architectural field but Taliesin West is a different and unique place. This time (Feb 22, 2014), I took the two hour shelter tour. This is a hike through the desert in which students show... More
