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

The volunteer guide was very knowledgable and gave us lots of interesting facts about this FLW refurbishment. The Trust gave us their all but because I found the work uninspiring it left me disappointed

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.

We did the 3 hour house, studio and Oak Park tour. The tour was excellent, led by an exceptional guide. The tour we selected only takes 10 guests which allows for a customized experience. I would do this tour again and highly recommend it.

In my opinion I would say his Home and Studio in Oak Park, or the Rhobie House in Hyde Park.
