“Another amazing building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

This has been our third Wright House and we - again - enjoyed visiting it a lot. The 90min tour was perfect and kept our children (9 and 12) engaged and lots of information for the adults. The emphasis was both on the building and the personality of Wright. I wish we would have come early enough for a desert walk. A little bit hard to find, there are not a lot of signs.

“Wright Stuff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

We took the 90 minute "most popular" tour of the campus and came away very impressed. Our guide was highly knowledgeable and eager to share his insights on Wright's life and work. Take your camera; there are photo ops around every corner. Very informative experience and well worth the visit.

Great tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's western studios and house. We took the standard 1.5 hour tour and found it informative and entertaining.

Outstanding gift shop and patio to enjoy the views.

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

A great way to gain some insight into the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright. The tour guides are excellent and to hear the story of how he came to build this house and surrounding buildings is fascinating.
