If you appreciate beauty and function and history this place needs no introduction. Do yourself a favor and leave the mall or golf course and go learn about this genius and bask in the beauty of this place.Most memorable part of Scottsdale by far.

This was a very interesting tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home. We visited the house only and not the architecture school. Our guide gave us interesting facts along the way on Frank Lloyd Wright's personal life and some of his quirks. Highly recommend.

Great tour with great Guides. I’m not even a Frank Lloyd Wright fan but I walked away with new respect. What an outstanding vision he had.I will say the tour was a bit longer than I thought it was going to be.

My friends and I were so thrilled with this tour. It was very interesting and informative. I knew very little of Frank Lloyd Wright prior to tour but left with information that left lasting appreciation. Loved Merna as tour guide.

This drive should not be bad, any time of the day. It would normally take you 25 to 30 minutes to drive from Taliesin to the Wrigley Mansion. Take Cactus out of Taliesin, continue on Cactus for about 10 miles, turn left on... More
