If you like Frank Lloyd Wright, you have to go here. I did the house and studio tour and it did not disappoint. Great information on, basically, what Frank was all about. Do not expect perfectly remodelled buildings, they are in rough cosmetic shape as most of their funds have gone to shoring up the structures.

Great place to tour, enjoyed it very much but a little "pricy" Had a wonderful tour guide and leaned a lot. We have visited a lot of F L W. homes in the past and this was quite a "treat" for us. Liked the fact they transported us via Bus to the home. Will recommend the tour to anyone that... More

Even on a hot, muggy day, the two-hour house tour was well worth the time. The gardens are beautiful, although in need of some attention. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable, and she willingly answered questions. Making sure that we appreciated the blending of home and landscape, she strategically planned entrances and exits, sometimes having the group enter from difference directions.... More

Taliesin East was a summer home for Frank Lloyd Wright and his art school. During our four hour tour of this estate, we learned much about the architect, his family and his school. His work and concepts were so far ahead of his contemporaries and evidence of this prevails throughout Taliesin. Our guide for this tour was extremely knowledgable and... More

I very much enjoyed the highlights tour, which includes the Hillside studio and the house. A van takes you between the 2 sites. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. My favorite part was the garden area around the house and the theater. The tour is both indoors and outdoors, so dress accordingly. There are times to sit down along the... More

We decided ahead to take the 4 hour estate tour (really plan ahead and arrange tickets before you go) as we knew this trip might be our only chance to head to Taliesin. Our guide, Melinda, was from the area and her great grandfather used to provide supplies for Mr. Wright's building of Taliesin, so she was able to add... More

This is our 8th Frank L Wright tour. The great thing is each offers unique and interesting insight into his work. Our guide was patient, informative and friendly. We purchased the 4 hour tour which was well worth the price.

The $50 price was well worth the tour. We toured both the Hillside studio and the house. Our guide was very interesting and fun and encouraged questions. It was nice to spend time both outside and inside of these buildings and I even learned a couple of new facts about Frank Lloyd Wright's philosophy of architecture and life. Lunch at... More

We took a guided tour of Hillside on the property where Frank Lloyd Wright's family had a school in the early 1900s. Just amazing the history behind the name.

It felt like a big chunk to spend $250 for five of us to tour this Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece, but I'm so glad we did! If you have even a passing interest in architecture, this tour is worthwhile and contributes to the preservation of an iconic, American home/school. Loved our tourguide who gave us insights into both the property... More
