Anyone with an interest in art and architecture should visit Taliesin West. Frank Lloyd Wright made an excellent choice with respect to the location of his Winter home!

Went on the 90 minute tour, which is more than enough. Glad we saw this really awe inspiring home and studio. We live near Oak Park Illinois so love to see other examples of FLW works.

I enjoyed hearing about his philosophy and why he was so eccentric. It is pretty run down, but they are keeping it original, which I understand.

I have visited a few F L Wright houses and this was the most expansive one I have visited. I leRned so much from a wonderful guide. She made us really get the feeling of this great architect. Many places to sit and Justin and a few even air conditioned. Highly recommend if this is of interest to you.

Enjoyed my tour of Frank Lloyd Wrights house. Fascinating learning about the history of something just around the corner from the house. Great views of the valley. A step back in time.

I am a member of this excellent organization & I take friends on one of their tours whenever I can. It is ideal for friends when they visit from out of town. The tours are very informative & guides are enthusiastic. It is a wonderful place.

A very unique experience that gives a 'step inside of history'. A very cool story and even cooler architecture. It is well worth the visit to North Scottsdale to check out Taliesin West!
