  • We opted for the self-guided tour, as we had visited years before. Unfortunately, the audio via headphones and their own iPads, just didn’t work well. We had trouble with volume, moving to the next...

  • Our guide Frank was such a wealth of knowledge. Our tour through Taliesin one of the best I've been on. A fascinating building built and inhabited by a generation of incredible artisans. The Chihuly exhibit was a fun bonus. A great way to spend a few hours. Strongly recommend if you're into art, architecture, and history.
  • Sunsets and sips. . . Sunset is definitely the time to be at Frank Lloyd Wright's desert home. Unfortunately it is hard to get a full interior tour at this time. The Chihuly glass exhibit more than made up for this. The auditorium/movie theater was open for viewing. The staff and docents are really exceptionally warm, kind and knowledgeable on this site. We felt very welcome and unhurried. One of the highlights of our 4 months in Phoenix over the last 3 years.
