Taliesin Tour

Postby Joe Way » Mon Jun 25, 2012 6:03 pm

On Monday, August 6th we plan to travel by coach to Spring Green to visit Taliesin, architect Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio. First of all, it is located in a very beautiful part of the state a little over an hour from Madison. We will have lunch together before the tour at the Frank Lloyd Wright visitor center. The tour, itself will be a little over two hours. Last fall, Anne & I took Vern Silver on the tour and, though he wasn't at all familiar with Wright, he enjoyed it very much.

The coach can seat 27 passengers and we need a minimum of 21 people to qualify for the group tour rate. The "Highlights" tour which includes both the Hillside School studio, theater and the Taliesin "house" tour including interiors of the house is about $50 (a less if we have enough people). The cost of the coach ($450) would be divided by our numbers.

So far we have:

Joe & Anne Way
Jarkko & Eija
Sinnika
Cristina
Lizzy
Dick & Linda Straub
Jane Robinson
Sue Farebrother
Eddy Massa & Ann Mechiels
Maarten Massa
Mary Aaftink
Vlasta Podebradska
Evelyn Stein (17 total)

If I've missed anyone or listed someone in error, please contact me. I need to make our reservation at least 3 weeks in advance and changes are difficult after that time. Here is a link to the Taliesin website: http://www.taliesinpreservation.org/vis ... ights-tour

Excuse the non-PC of my question, but are you counting couples as one person or two for dividing the $450, Joe?
I'm trying to do the math on this.

Thanks!

Hi Lizzy,
We will divide it equally per person.
