Our tour guide was a tall sophisticated blonde woman who was very knowledgeable and an interesting, witty storyteller. She served as a window into Frank Lloyd Wright's world, highlighting his talent, but not hiding his less attractive personality traits. The home showcases Wright's attention to the environment and his unique style of teaching. Our guide made the 90-minute tour go... More

I expected this to be a stuffy visit, and it was far from stuffy! The tour guide we had was outstanding at his facts, dates and interesting information. You get a tour of the true heart of Frank Lloyd Wright and his convictions. This is an awe inspiring tour that is well worth the time.

What a great way to gain some understanding of architecture and the contributions of a fellow American. I was amazed to see the designs and forward thinking that went into the complex designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. A good deal of the 1.5-hour tour is outdoors giving a sense of the beauty which Wright must have experienced as the compound... More

The Taliesin West is a must do for those curious about the life and antics of this most intriguing American architect. While the buildings and grounds showcase some of his styles and focus, it's still a working school and the docents provide an excellent overview of each building, his life during the period of acquisition and construction. You get to... More

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.
