The Highlights Tour is a way to experience the interiors of two significant, yet distinctly different Wright-designed buildings, Hillside and Taliesin. Created for the Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiast and the casual visitor, the Highlights Tour couples the history and masterful design of two building complexes into one quick-paced 2-hour tour. In addition to visiting the two buildings, this tour includes a drive through the scenic Taliesin grounds past Midway Farm, Taliesin’s historic farming complex.

This tour is a rich overview of the Taliesin property’s finest architectural jewels, beginning with Hillside, you'll see the:

  • Assembly Hall
  • Fellowship Dining Room
  • 5,000 square foot Hillside Drafting Studio
  • Hillside Theater

 After visiting Hillside, you’ll drive across the estate to Taliesin and enjoy some of the areas such as:

  • Wright’s personal Studio
  • The Living Room
  • Wright's Guest Bedroom
  • Wright’s Bedroom
  • Mrs. Wright’s Bedroom
  • The newly restored Loggia and Loggia Terrace

Covering spaces designed by Wright in 1902, 1911, 1932, and 1952. The Highlights Tour is a refreshing gateway experience into the legacy of both Wright and Taliesin for both the novice and the seasoned Wright enthusiast.
