The 90 minute tour is priced a bit high ($32 pp), But, our guide was knowledgable and humorous. You get to see where Frank Lloyd Wright spent his summer months and come away with a better understanding of his unique contributions.

Tour of Taliesin was superb. Knowledgable guide led us through the property and allowed us to sit, photograph and feel the rooms, unlike at Falling Water ( which is understandable). Cost was reasonable and gift shop and coffee shop were fine. Was so impressed that...More

If you are a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright/FLW, his winter/desert creation is a must to tour. There is a lot of walking in & out of buildings, so tour in the morning unless you can tolerate the heat. It is best to check out...More

I don't think so. The interesting parts were historical about the time period and informational about Wright's life and work. I don't think kids would be interested in that. The Insight tour was about 1.5 hours and didn't... More
