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

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

Downtown / The Loop
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

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