If you are a FLW lover, visit Taliesin West. You view this home/school and see his work up front. The tour is done well and you do get the full flavor of this architect. It is great to see this desert home especially if you have seen his Midwest home.

Back when North Scottsdale was only an arid expanse of desert nestled amongst the mountains, Frank Lloyd Wright saw promise, a dream, a vision of his own living space integrating the beauty of the natural Arizona wilderness into his home. The house is a marvel to behold, an experiment of sorts, of what he could accomplish in what was still... More

Taliesin West was just a couple of miles from the house we rented so I had to take a tour while I was so close. I got on a 10am tour on a Saturday morning, without a reservation, which was perfect. Not that I would recommend going without a reservation, I just got lucky that it worked out. The group... More

walking in the wilderness with cactus plants and small bushes surrounding you and the mountains calling you to explore it. Long and short trails to satisfy your wondering lust.

Took the 90 minute Insights Tour and was thoroughly impressed. I knew very little about Frank Lloyd Wright. The guided tour gave an overview of his life and the impact that he had on American architecture. A great deal of social and cultural history was revealed as they talked about the creation of his winter residence. This tour requires very... More

What a interesting tour. It gave us more apreciation for the designs to actually see them. Kind of disappointing that we only got to see part of the home due to renovations.

Out of town visitor's usually want to take a tour, so we have gone numerous times. Each tour guide mentions a few different facts so we have always enjoyed the tour.

We took the 1.5 hour guided tour with our group of 8 people who were early retirees. The tour was listed as the most popular tour on the Taliesin West website. Our tour guide was BG and she was excellent. She was very knowledgeable, organized and pleasant. The site was interesting but the tour guide really makes the visit so... More
