  • We took the 3¼-hour tour and loved every minute. Our tour director did an excellent job, and we learned more than I can ever remember. Not only did he tell us about the school, FLLW, architecture...  more »
  • We had not been here in quite a few years and decided to return. Signed up for a tour and it was a wonderful experience. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable not only about Taliesin West but also....  more »
  • We were there just before the COVID-19 outbreak shut it down. Our tour guide was Rochelle and she was remarkably knowledgeable and very friendly. We were very lucky to have such an informative tour...  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
