A must for Frank LLoyd Wright fans

I am not a big FLW fan, but I do enjoy his history. Definitly worth the time and price. Also a good place to observe the surounding desert.

Taliesin West is a campus, a mini community. We did the Nights Lights and the Extended Insights Tours. The tours really gave us the experience of what it was like to live as students having strolled around the campus at two very different times of the day. I fancied what it would be like as a student to have had... More

The tour at sunset gives Wright's work a totally new perspective. The natural lighting followed by the property lighting made the house even more impressive. Our tour guide, Mark, was very informative without over doing the information. Just loved his tour. Unlike other Wright homes you can photograph every where, and you are actually allowed to sit in certain rooms... More

We took a guided tour of the property. It lasted about 90 minutes. The tour guide was well informed and interesting with a touch of humor. The property has some amazing views. Learning about how the architecture evolved was interesting.

I enjoyed our visit to Taliesin West. We live near many FLW homes, so I was interested to see it. There is so much history and intrigue under the surface. I particularly liked the theater and hearing of all the artists that visited. If the walls could talk... My daughter is was not so interested in the architecture or history.... More

Beautiful property and entertaining tour - and experience we won't forget. You're able to see multiple rooms on the property, you're educated on the philosophy and mechanics of the construction. Would visit again! Next time in the winter.

We visited Taliesin West at the end of June, 2015. Being from the east, we had already seen Falling Water. The tour in Phoenix was unique in that Frank Lloyd Wright actually lived there. The tour guide was very interesting and we were able to see many of the buildings used including the home and theatres. Being a very hot... More

Throughout the Valley of the Sun - Phoenix, Scottsdale, and the surrounding cities - Frank Lloyd Write's influence looms large. Taliesin West is the original location of his Arizona colony of budding architects. Rather than describing it in words, I will say that you have to see it for yourself. This is the place which influenced generations of architects, and... More
