One of his most famous and if you're a fan, come see it before they close it down, which I understand is soon.

Set on a desert preserve in the lower McDowell Mountains, visitors learn about Wright's organic architectural style. Taliesin West is Scottsdale's only National Historic Landmark and was Frank Lloyd Wright's winter residence and summer teaching facility.

This was my third Frank Lloyd Wright house and it was beautiful. Our tour guide was very good and the tour was well worth it. In fact, there are a number of different tours that I would love to go back for, such as the twilight tour. I would suggest making the time to enjoy the grounds and give this... More

Start by studying the stunning views of the Valley, then check out the amazing variety of plants and vegetation. Then top it off by marveling at the foresight of Frank Lloyd Wright

Very interesting tour of Taliesin West. We were there on a cool rainy day so we did not get to bask in the beauty of the surroundings but did get an idea. We will return on a better weather day and re-do the tour.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and had grown up on the Taliesin West Campus. He shared details about his own experience as well as the complete history for Frank Lloyd Wright's development of a prominent architectural school, made entirely with manual labor and natural materials. Wright was quite the colorful individual!

We took the twilight tour of the compound. The tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging, but the tour would be just as inspiring during the day time. The shop on site has some wonderful gifts, jewelry, books and other pieces. The buildings are remarkable and the grounds are unlike any other. The most fascinating part was the insight into the...

Frank Lloyd Wright is such a significant part of architectural history in the US, that it was a great experience to visit his workshops (we had also been to the original Taliesin in Wisconsin). His style and creativity are extraordinary as well as his personal life made our visit interesting. It also stimulated our desire to view several of his... More
