Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West is Scottsdale's only National Historic Landmark. It serves as a prime example of Wright’s organic architecture in that the structures are built of the rocks and sand of the Sonoran Desert and melds to the lower McDowell Mountains.
The grounds and buildings were constructed over a period of approximately twenty years by Frank Lloyd Wright and his apprentices. Set amid a Sonoran Desert Preserve of 491 acres, Taliesin West tours wind through provocative terraces, landscaped gardens and walkways commanding dramatic views of Camelback Mountain and the Valley of the Sun.
To view the innovative desert masonry of Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and workplace, book a 60-minute, self guided audio tour or a guided tour, led by an expert tour guide. Guests enjoy multiple stops where they learn about the history of Taliesin West and its famous creator.
The self-guided audio tour lets you walk the inner core of the property. Audio clip featuring Frank Lloyd Wright himself makes this option extra special.
Our Guided Tour includes all the stops of the audio tour -- and more -- along with the entertaining and insightful storytelling of our guides.
