I enjoyed the tour. It was nice and interesting. Only wish I could have seen more. For extra cost I believe that there is a longer tour.

Our tour guide was great, knew an incredible amount about Wright and the house. Be sure to get to the visitor center early so you can take a look at the display and well-thought out timeline.

A must for FLW fans that are in the area. What an amazing house. We really enjoyed the tour and everyone was very friendly and helpful. They were redoing the landscaping. I would really like to see it once that is finished.

Tours offered on the hour, either a one-hour tour of the main house or a two-hour tour that includes the Gardener's cottage, a house built for Darwin Martin's sister and the upstairs of the main house. If you have time I'd definitely recommend the two-hour...More

Excellent tour. Well worth the $35 for two hours. Barry, our guide, was great! Easy to get to by Uber and was one of Frank Lloyd a Wright’s most interesting homes (I’ve been to two others)
