We took the tour with Myrna, who was excellent. Taliesin West is very interesting. My husband is disabled, and the tour was a great pace for him.

Our guide Phil C. was charming and funny. Unlike other FLW sites, because this is still a school, it focused a lot on his role as a mentor and teacher. We had a wonderful time at the site.

This place has a long history. FLW would bring his family, apprentices, and their families to this enclave in the desert every winter, thus escaping the Wisconsin winters at the original Taliesin. We did the “Insights” tour and had a marvelous docent. It was 90...More

Interesting tour of an icon school. You come away understanding how driven Frank Loyd Wright was. He had students build the school. It was larger that I had visioned and is still a working school. Great view of Phoenix from the school.

I do not believe you can tour the outside grounds on your own, but you can visit the gift shop and café without buying a tour ticket.
