We enjoyed our day with Stefan. He was friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant. With COVID restrictions and so many things not open yet, I think this made the tour a little difficult. We drove around a long time with Google Maps to find the Frank Lloyd Wright homes. I feel that guides should remember this info or have a cheat sheet to use. Otherwise, we enjoyed it. Also, upon signing up, it says someone from the local place will contact you. This did not happen. I had to email and confirm the night before that the tour was happening and the time/pick up location was correct. They should’ve reached out to me.

Very informative, everything worked out wonderfully from pick up to the end. Very nice and very good guide, also nice and courteous driver, comfortable car. The tour itself has a strong focus on Lloyd Wright, but that's fitting in a city where he started, has been active, and where many of his homes stand. Overall excellent tour with insights we would never have had otherwise.
