  • First off, I'm a huge FLW lover and I visit his POI's all over the country. This is one of the best and I absolutely loved the AZ setting and mid century modern look. Keep in mind, this isn't a newly....  more »
  • I love mid-century modern homes and furniture. I’m really into that retro vibe. My wife and I were just in Scottsdale for a little R&R and registered for the self-guided tour at $40/person. The audio....  more »
  • The self-guided audio guide was very good. We enjoyed walking through all of the various rooms and we learned so much about FLW throughout the visit. Go early in the summer, as you are outside a lot.....  more »
  • Frank Lloyd Wright. Need I say more. This is more than a home but a tight little complex in 600 acres. It currently houses the Frank Lloyd Wright Masters in Architecture program . The tour shows show many unique features that flowed from the mind of Mr. Wright. Amazing, Beautiful, Gorgeous, Thought Provoking! Worth the trip. Buy tickets online before you go!
  • I had a great time. We had a very clean room. Front desk staff were exceptional. Great customer service. Restaurant food was excellent. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Beautiful hotel on the inside!
  • Gorgeous night tour. Beginning at 5:30, the sunset was exceptional. Toured 25 years ago, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing different places: the gathering rooms, performing space, the private bedrooms and most especially, the incredible, underground Cabaret. Next time, hopefully soon, the Desert Shelters. Great tour guide.
  • Kinda disappointing. I love art and architecture and have a very high capacity for intellectual experiences. I was hoping to enjoy some architectural craftsmanship and design, and though I can appreciate the historical significance of this space, due to the nature of the design it is in rather drab disrepair. Even though our guide was excellent, (probably the best part of this tour) the building itself is no masterpiece - perhaps purposefully so. If Frank Lloyd Wright imagined Taliesin West as a space that would eventually crumbly back into the landscape from which it emerged - then indeed this place has fulfilled its destiny.
  • Awesome Experience!! Loved it and our tour guide Sergio was on point! Would definitely recommend this tour for anyone in AZ no matter if you are visiting or live here. Very informative and educational and beautiful of course! ❤AZ
