We have been to 2 other FLW homes/art and although interesting it was our least favorite. There was not much of the property to tour and just wasn't as interesting of a property. If you love FLW, go. If you are on the fence, skip it. Tour guide however was passionate about FLW although I think she took a lot... More

Taliesin West is a true gem of Scottsdale. We took the Panorama Tour and our guide was knowledgeable, spoke clearly, and gave us time for questions and pictures. She had many anecdotes that gave a good feel to Frank Lloyd Wright's life, personality, and vision/drive as an architect. It is worth the money, drive, and time!

Visited Frank Lloyd Wright's Talisen West and it was breathtaking. We went on the hour and a half tour of the buildings. Our guide was very well informed and provided lots of information on not only Talisen West but other information on Frank Lloyd Wright. The buildings and the grounds were beautiful and blended into the desert environment. Definitely worth... More

My first Frank Lloyd Wright tour. Excellent tour with Bruce. Great explanation of the history and evolution of the property and the architectural school. Not rushed. Bruce answered all questions, encouraged more, and seemingly would have stayed longer discussing. After checking whether it was ok with all of us, he let the tour run long. Thanks.

This was my second time visiting Taliesin West, the Frank Lloyd Wright place. First this is NOT a Frank Lloyd Wright home, It is a an architectural school for advanced studies granting Masters degrees. However the grounds, buildings and materials are all FLLW. The buildings and grounds reflect his design methods and concepts. As in all his designs fir into... More

We've visited Taliesin (Spring Green, WI) and Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio in Oak Brook, IL previously. This tour is a must if you're in the area. Our guide (Peter) was extremely intelligent and so genuinely passionate about Mr. Wright. He was also very respectful of FLW. The tour we took is 90 minutes and you get see just... More

An hour and a half of interesting information and fascinating views. Our guide, Sue, was amazing. Knowledgeable and clearly devoted to the museum and he man. I learned a lot, not just about architecture, but about acoustics and aesthetics. I highly recommend this tour.
