I took this trip since it seemed to include the most attractions for one price. I believe it was $150 for a seven hour tour which also included lunch. It included two guides as well as a representative of the FLW Trust. We started at...More

This was an all day tour including lunch. It started at The Rookery, which although not designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, had been refurbished by him so any FLW followers would recognise the architectural traits of the architect. The tour then went out to Oak...More

I enjoyed this basic tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio. This was my first introduction to Wright and his work and this one-hour tour was informative and interesting. The place was jam-packed on the day we visited. Still, group sizes were limited appropriately....More

This tour is great. The guides have wonderful knowledge of Wright and others that worked for him and are eager to share with you. We both thought it was an excellent tour and plan to do it again. The Robie House was our favorite.
