Summary

Our Estate tour begins at the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center, the only free-standing restaurant designed by Wright. From there, guests are shuttled with their guide to the Taliesin estate for a four-hour walking tour that moves through a large portion of the estate. 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 gallery space.
  • Taking a country walk past the Romeo and 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.
  • Checking out Midway Barn en route to the Taliesin home itself.

Halfway through the tour, you’ll be served a light snack while relaxing on Frank Lloyd Wright’s terrace before enjoying an exterior tour of his home. Finally, you’ll spend a delightful one hour inside Taliesin itself.

Comfortable walking shoes are a must for this tour since it includes a 1½ mile hike with some considerable hills from one end of the estate to the other with few places to sit down.

*The Hillside Theater is currently closed to visitors due to scheduled preservation work that will continue through the 2022 tour season.*

Accessibility

The tours begin on the picturesque rural estate that has some unique characteristics. All tours require a significant amount of standing, stair climbing, and walking on uneven terrain. There are several series of steps and some with no handrails. Some exterior walkways consist of loose gravel or grassy pathways. There is no opportunity to leave the group should you wish to stay behind. Our public tours are not wheelchair accessible. We can arrange private accessible tours with three weeks’ notice. Please call directly for details. 877-588-7900 Ext 229.
