    Our tour guide was Don (with a pony tail). Great story teller. Prior to this, I had little to no appreciation for FLW and his work. I can't say that I learned a lot about architectural details (maybe ...  more »

    My husband and I visited Taliesin West in May of this year. It was an absolutely fabulous experience. Myrnah, our guide, was wonderful. She was so well informed and really made the place come alive. We loved listening to her speak about Frank Lloyd Wright, his life and his legacy. I followed her advice and read Loving Frank, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you for providing us with an experience we will never forget!

    Taliesin West is by far one of the most immersive tours of the Frank Lloyd Wright works. He pulled out all the stops for his home away from home/architectural school. Special highlights include being able to actually sit in the furniture of his living room, the expansive view and an interesting insight into his ability to use nature to his advantage. Here he designed rooms and the lighting based on positions of the sun during certain times of day. I haven't been to tons of his places but this certainly will remain one of the highlights.

    Really well worth visiting and taking a tour. Even if you are not an architect geek and into FLW, you really get to appreciate the age of the place and how much of a forward thinker he was. It is a bit pricey but the tours are substantial. You will do some walking - if you have issues with walking, this might not be for you. But I've been here a few times now and never disappointed with a visit.

    Our guide, Paula, was animated and informative. Encourage you to book the 9 a.m. tour before it gets too hot. If you forgot a hat, the center has umbrellas to borrow to protect you from the sun. Part of the tour is outside and part is inside. Highly recommended!

    My review is with regard to a FLLW designed nightstand lamp. It is gorgeous and has improved my room wonderfully. A bit of what I hope would be a constructive improvement. When lying in bed ones head is below the upper lamp and the bulbs are quite visible and slightly disturbing. The lamp would be greatly enhanced of the upper bulbs were concealed as is the night light bulb in the base of the lamp. Otherwise tha lamp is fantastic!!
