This two-hour primarily exterior tour offers visitors a unique overview of the serene valley in which Frank Lloyd Wright spent his youth and to which he returned as an adult to build his home. During the first hour of the tour, visitors will ride by and view the exteriors of Unity Chapel, Hillside Home School, Romeo and Juliet Windmill, Tan-y-deri House, Midway Farm, and, of course, Taliesin itself. An experienced guide provides historical and architectural interpretations of each structure.
During the tour's second hour, visitors take an intimate walk through Taliesin's Upper and Lower Courtyards and Orchard, concluding with a special walk-through of Wright's personal studio.
Shuttle/Walking tours are weather-dependent.
The Visitor Center bookstore and gift shop is open 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on weekends in April and November, as well as the Friday after Thanksgiving.
