John was so passionate and informative as he guided our tour through the Robie House. We learned quite a lot about Frank Lloyd Wright. The home is so impressive based on the “technology” added when this home was built in the early 1900s.

The house is outstanding, comparable to the Wright museum-quality houses in Buffalo, New York and the room in the Metropolitan Museum. The exterior is classic Frank Lloyd Wright and the interior is spectacular. The windows are a delight. A true showcase of the mind of a designer and architect who is probably even more significant in the history of design and architecture than he is credited: provided the source material for the Glasgow School and through his visual and theoretical influence on the Vienna Secession and the Wiener Werkstatte, the Bauhaus movement. Wright design and architecture changed the world.

The Robie House is a must see if you are in the area. It is almost fully restored and really showcases the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright and his forward thinking. Our tour guide was intelligent, articulate and personable. The only downside is there is no designated parking so be sure to lane extra time to find a spot. Be prepared to parallel park!

It was a very informative tour. The property is in great shape. One of the best examples of the style. I highly recommend seeing it in person.

Our tour guide was engaging and clearly knew his FLW. With only 4 couples in our tour slot, it didn’t feel too crowded. This is now our favorite FLW location!

Excellent tour of the house that explains why certain choices were made in its design. The extra $10 for the audio tour outside the house is NOT worth it; you’ll be fine with the $20 house tour.
