We booked a private time with Savvy Tours of the northern part of Chicago and the Frank Lloyd Wright properties. As there was only three of us - me, my husband and George Pudlo, the Director of the company - we got all the information we could want. Yes, this is more expansive than a group tour but George told all kinds of stories about FLW's life, his family, his architecture and the various women in his life. George is a an expert on FLW. We got out of the vehicle a couple of times to do walk abouts. I must say that the Bahai's temple is amazing. While not FLW architecture, it is truly magnifiicent and I could see why George included it in the trip.
George will be a hotel concierge this winter. He was well placed to give us recommendations for a future trip on hotels, restaurants and other places to see and things to do. We had such a good time and got to seem more of FLW's work, including the only bridge he ever designed. I would go back on this tour just to refresh on all the information.
If you go on the north tour, be ready to see some really wonderful homes, great lake views and samples of FLW's amazing talent. George is a great tour host!
