If you're a fan of Wright or of architecture, this is a must-do if you're in the Phoenix area. The setting is amazing, the grounds are spectacular, and you'll learn a ton about the world greatest architect. I've been here before--about nine years ago--so I wasn't sure that I'd learn a lot more than I already knew and remembered. But... More

Taliesin West is a very interesting estate. My husband is a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright and I went along to learn more about him and the estate. Although the design was not my taste, I did enjoy seeing the architecture and appreciate his love of bringing nature inside and designing with the setting in mind. To see a working... More

Looking for a reason to get out of the city the tour is a nice reason. Provides insight into Frank Lloyd Wright and his earth grounded architectural style. Plan for 2 hours. Nice addition to other FLW building tours elsewhere in the US.

This is the second time I have experienced this tour. This time in early September it was very, very hot and uncomfortable.The tour is still interesting and worthwhile. I have been to the Spring Green, Wisconsin tour many times and that property and tour is superior. I would recommend the tour with mild comfortable weather and if you have an... More

A must see in the desert, the summer campus for the FLW architectural school. The man was a genius in so many ways. A variety of tours to pick from, all informative about his life, his work and his vision.
