I was hesitant at first to dedicate 6 hours to a bus tour of Frank Lloyd Wright sites around Chicago. However, it was a great decision to book this tour. The transportation logistics on it's own pay for the tour. You get to travel in...More
We loved this tour. Our two tour guides were so knowledgeable and informative, the size of the group was just right at around 16. The tour made viewing multiple Frank Lloyd Wright houses across the city possible. We would never have seen them all if...More
We took the Rookery Tour and it was great. It is right in the heart of Chicago. We got to learn all about Burnham and Root (the original architects), the growth of architecture/skyscrapers in Chicago, and obviously Frank Lloyd Wright. FLW renovated the Rookery and...More
Starting at the Rookery... a Frank Lloyd Wright restoration, you are taken by bus to the Unity Church, walk 4 blocks around Oak Park... which has the largest concentration of FLW houses that are not open for tours but are fantastic to gaze at from...More
We don't usually do bus tours, as we like to go at our own (faster) pace, but after looking at the logistics of trying to get to all these sites using public transportation we decided to give it a try. It was totally worth it,...More
I took the guided tour (pay ahead of time in the lobby store and then show up 5 minutes early for tour time to get your tour badge. It is a walking tour (inside and outside of the building) and you do get to climb...More

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
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
As you have only a short time. I would suggest that you take a cab out to Oak Park where you can visit the museum and Unity Temple which are quite close to each other. The museum is actually one of his houses so a very good... More
As you have only a short time. I would suggest that you take a cab out to Oak Park where you can visit the museum and Unity Temple which are quite close to each other. The museum is actually one of his houses so a very good example of his architecture and prairie houses.
