Our docent Paula Hertel was wonderful. Not only was she friendly and pleasant, but she relayed so much information about the house and its former owners, as well as Frank Lloyd Wright. Also, the movie before the tour was excellent.
Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. She made the tour very enjoyable.
A very unique house in a wonderful setting. The tour guide was great. Glad I made the effort to see the house.
Knowledgeable guide and beautiful house.
First opportunity to see a FLW house. Excellent tour guide! Incredible opportunity for my children. Thank you!
Our guide, Dave, is very personable and seems to enjoy his job very much. He was knowledgeable about the house and its history and we learned a lot. However, we were a bit disappointed that the tour was truly solely focused on the house and the Kraus family. Obviously this is great information but, in my humble opinion, the tour should also include "story telling" about FLW. Mr. Wright was quite a character and I think knowing more about his personality would add value to the tour (especially for those unfamiliar with him). I realize one hour is not a long time and I think that's part of the "problem". Perhaps you might consider increasing the tour to 1.5 hours (for example) to allow some story-telling. Tell folks to budget two hours so they have a solid 1.5 hours for the tour plus time at the end to shop in the store and/or ask questions and socialize a bit. It seemed nearly all of us on the 10am tour only budgeted about an hour and then had to leave for various reasons so we all left feeling a bit rushed (having not allowed sufficient time). For us personally, we would have shopped and probably purchased something at the store but didn't have time. I hope this helps. Dave was great. It's no reflection on him!
Our tour guides were so informed and displayed a love for this house. My grandchildren and I had a wonderful afternoon together.
Beautiful restoration - friendly & informative guides
It was interesting and we learned a lot about the house.
Ann was a very hospitable and informative tour guide. She was also very good at managing a rumbunctious teenage boy in our group.
Very informative tour. Our guide was terrific! Glad to see so much effort was put into restoring this jewel.
