We first drove up there only to find the tours sold out. We made an online reservation for the 1 1/2 hour tour, and returned two days later. Very good opportunity to see good design and learn about the many facets of Frank Lloyd Wright's philosophy and accomplishments.

This is a place that you must visit in Scottsdale. To think this place is almost 80 years old and the spaces looks like they were build yesterday give a deep realization of the vision of great architecture that transcend fashion to become a timeless experience !!!

Our tour docent was excellent. The hour and a half went quickly. The "organic" architect will amaze you with his thoughtful planning ahead. How he merged nature with functionality was impressive. The cost of the tour was good value.

We visited about 15 years ago and were enthralled! Most things were original or great reconstruction. This time we were shuttled through and given misinformation (for instance that Wright invented bi-fold doors, in floor and pathlighting.) Maybe he was a pioneer at using those features but he certainly didn't invent them. We were not told that we couldn't go back... More

The Docent was very well informed and did a nice job showing off her knowledge. We had a party of 4 with one in a wheelchair, I'm a big guy and had a hard time pushing our quad friend up some of the ramps. They were short and steep. Other than that, it was a lot of fun.

A great experience to visit with and explore Taliesin. Fellows are present and at work. The history and presence of Frank Lloyd Wright is obvious. A visit brings the concept of an architectural fellowship to your senses.
