We visited the Rookery downtown which he renovated and then took the train to Oak Park to see his Unity Temple and his first home and studio. The tours of all three were critical to fully appreciating these sites and his genius. The studio/home is...More

This was an all day tour including lunch. It started at The Rookery, which although not designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, had been refurbished by him so any FLW followers would recognise the architectural traits of the architect. The tour then went out to Oak...More

The volunteer guide was very knowledgable and gave us lots of interesting facts about this FLW refurbishment. The Trust gave us their all but because I found the work uninspiring it left me disappointed

This tour is great. The guides have wonderful knowledge of Wright and others that worked for him and are eager to share with you. We both thought it was an excellent tour and plan to do it again. The Robie House was our favorite.
