If you have the right guide, then you will learn a lot about how FLW thought and who he shared his life with. Some of his co-workers still live at the property.

A very cool experience to tour the house of one of the greats. This is well worth a visit despite the price tag. Would loved to have wandered through more but the rules do not allow for meandering. Must stick with the tour group.

What a wonderful, informative tour. Our guide, Paul, was knowledgable, articulate and so gracious, always ready to answer questions. I loved every moment of our visit and can't wait to take our visitors there.

One of Arizona’s gems. Fabulous docent tour and unique peek at Wright’s sojourn in the desert. Stunning setting—albeit what a shame to have the view include a string of massive power towers. (Great gift shop.) Will return!

I had watched the Ken Burns series on FLW last year. And while the show didn’t endear me to the man, I couldn’t help but be awed by his genius, love of nature, and accomplishments. Taliesin West (translated means “shining brow” - which exemplifies FLW’s...More
