Love this tour. It is a little different each time depending on what tour guide you get. The night time tour is so beautiful. Lots to see and admire. Frank Lloyd Wright was a wizard!

A guest and frequent traveling pal is a FLW enthusiast, so I did book this as mainly a surprise for him. He probably liked it fine, and he took many pictures. The least expensive tour--and, be aware, a guided tour is required to see the...More
