The Estate Tour is a 4-hour hike across the estate.

On the Estate Tour, guests are shuttled to the Taliesin estate for a 4-hour hiking tour that takes you through the estate’s Driftless country hills. Some of the highlights include:

  • Exploring Hillside, the school that Wright designed for his aunts. Here, you’ll see the Assembly Hall, Fellowship Dining Room, Drafting Studio, and the Theater.
  • Taking a hike past the Romeo & Juliet windmill tower, the oldest design on the estate. 
  • Getting a close-up look at Tan-y-Deri, the home Wright built for his sister Jane Porter.
  • Walking past Midway Barns en route to Wright’s home, Taliesin.

 Halfway through the tour, you’ll be served light refreshments and sweet treats while relaxing on Wright’s terrace before enjoying an interior and exterior tour of the home. 

Comfortable walking shoes are a must for this tour, it includes a 1½ mile hike, with a couple of hills, from one end of the estate to the other, with no opportunity to sit down.
