If you love architecture and are in the area, Taliesin MUST be on your "to do" list. I signed up for the three and a half hour tour and loved it. Our guide had ten years experience at the venue, eight as a volunteer and two as staff. Her knowledge was boundless. Plus, our group was small making the experience... More

I took the afternoon 1.5 hour tour and loved every minute of it! Not only was our guide, Loa, knowledgeable and clever in her humor, but the tour was a wonderful experience! A treasure indeed! Worth the money, for sure!!!!!

If you like Frank Lloyd Wright architecture then it would be a shame to miss this attraction. It is only available by booking a tour. The standard one lasts about an hour and a half and is full of interest. Highly recommended.

This is Frank Lloyd Wright's western masterpiece, truly one of the more important works of 20th century architecture, planning, and design. The tours are excellent, the site and views magnificent, and you will be supporting a landmark. Go in the morning or late afternoon for best views.

Touring Taliesin West was the reason we decided to come to Scottsdale AZ. We took the Behind the Scenes Tour. It was about three hours long. Our guide was fantastic and the tour was wonderful! It was so much more than I expected. $70 per person we booked and pd. in advance.

I will start out by saying we are huge admirers of Frank Lloyd Wright. We have toured many of his homes in the Midwest and live near Taliesen. It was wonderful to see how he adapted his style and philosophy to this climate and landscape. His brilliance is as apparent here as it is in the other places we have... More

Frank Lloyd Wright is one of Americas--and the worlds-- great architects and builders. His viision and imagination come alive at his "winter home" Taliesan West. Excellent guides provide the stories and facts that enhance everyone's learning. Expensive, but worth the money.

We were visiting family in the area. Looking for something to do and someone suggested Taliesin West. I do love Frank Lloyd Wright. The tour was very interesting and informative. We had a great day there and got to take as many pictures as we wanted. Great view and great place. Must add it to places to go.
