WORLD-CLASS PRESENTATIONS and CURATED BUCKET-LIST ADVENTURES.
"Our trip with Architecture Travel Companion to Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob and Polymath Park was fantastic. Tim is very knowledgeable and is a wealth of information and is helpful to everyone from seasoned architects to the architectural novice. Robin kept the trip together and is a wonderful guide and organizer. The trip was well planned and the bus was comfortable that took us to each site. We got a little lost for a few minutes on one mountain road but Robin and Tim got us back on track and it only added to the adventure. I would recommend this trip to anyone who has an interest in the architecture of FLW and architecture in general. Even if you don't like FLW architecture, you might just after this tour!" ~ Richard F., Orlando, Florida.
"I was one of the lucky group to attend this weekend's trip to Fallingwater and Polymath Park. Architecture Travel Companion does a great job of organizing every detail--fine food, fascinating lecture, friendly people! Tim and Robin ensure that every aspect is smoothly run! They deliver what they promise!" ~ Dottie Hetzel
When a prospective travel guest reached out and wanted to hear from previous guests, we sent an email out to several folks and this is what she heard from one couple: "Hi Jean, I wanted to send you a note about my Husband Edwin's and my experience doing one of the Wright architectural tours. Ours was up to Fallingwater and western PA. At ages 61 and 69 respectively, this was our very first ever "tour", after a lifetime of previously travelling always on our own time, own schedule and to things we assumed only we'd enjoy. This trip met all our very picky criteria for a first ever touring experience: Extremely knowledgeable hosts (we expected a very deep dive into topics, not a broad brush), we wanted a smaller crowd of similarly enthused fellow travelers (cruises have never been appealing to us), plenty of time at each location, and food options for us vegans. This hit all the buttons and we will definitely do one of these tours again...words I never thought I'd hear myself say! If you are on the fence I cant recommend this experience enough, it was a real bucket list experience for us." ~ Cindy and Edwin W.
"It was just so nice traveling with intelligent adults that were looking to expand their minds. Your trip was the best organized that I have ever been on and I have been on a number of day trips or longer with a couple of tour companies. You and Tim seemed to think of everything even letting us know that the restrooms were on our way to the bus. The wine accessory set was so thoughtful and beautiful. Thanks again for such a great time keep me on your postings about all upcoming trips." ~ Michele
"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the trip “Fallingwater and More” to Pittsburgh in April with you (Robin) and Timothy. It was more than I ever expected, from touring the amazing Frank Lloyd Wright houses at Polymath Park and the iconic Fallingwater, to the group camaraderie. Timothy alone is so incredibly knowledge about Frank Lloyd Wright history that he totally enhanced the experience, as well as, he is so friendly and a genuinely nice person. It was all well organized from hotels, food, transportation, and destinations. I have already highly recommended Architecture Travel Companion to my friends and family. Thank you Robin and Timothy for a wonderfully memorable weekend experience." ~ Neta Villalobos-Bell, Mount Dora, Florida
“From the moment I spoke with Tim Totten, I knew he would be a dynamic speaker and he did not disappoint! Tim was so popular with his topic on Frank Lloyd Wright, that a second session was added to our life-long learning series to accommodate the demand. Tim intertwines humor along with the history of Mr. Wright’s life making you anxious to hear what he will reveal next!”

"If you are looking for a fun, entertaining, informative, speaker Tim Totten is the perfect choice!"
(Note: Marilyn is a frequent guest at Tim's talks and on our tours.)
"I thoroughly enjoyed the Chicago/ Oak Park Wright Tour with Tim and Robin! Every detail was beautifully planned! A once in a lifetime trip! If you are seeking a FLW tour or speaker, Tim is the Wright choice!!!"
"What an enjoyable and inspiring event. The presentation was enhanced by personal insights and stories from passionate, experienced, guides each with a great depth of knowledge of the FLLW house they represent. Tim Totten professionally organized and moderated the discussion to bring out the best in all including photos as elements of each house was highlighted. Tim’s good nature and in-depth knowledge of the man, life, and work of FLLW is always a treat to long term Wright followers and newcomers alike. I look forward to more presentations like this one in the future."
"Thanks for doing this. Almost two hours of individual docent experiences that would normally only be shared in tours. As I live far away from all the buildings that the individual docents volunteer at, I would not likely have been able to visit them in the foreseeable future. So to have them bring their own experiences and images to this forum was a real treat. I look forward to other events that you might have in the future. While I can't travel right now, I sure will be in the future........I think Wisconsin!"
"What a great event Tim put together last night. And everything the many volunteer docents shared was so interesting and things we may not hear on their tours. Thank you to everyone for all the time it took to put this together. I look forward to other similar presentations in the future. If you weren't lucky enough to see last night's presentation, definitely join any that are offered from now on. I know I will any time I can."
"As you heard by the applause, the crowd loved the presentation and you! I am always pleased to soak up knowledge from someone who has a passion for what they are speaking about and you have a wonderful passion for Frank Lloyd Wright."
"This richly illustrated presentation is delivered with an upbeat tempo accented with wit and humor that draws in both the expert and the novice. With respect to the professional depth and passion of Mr. Totten's delivery, I am reminded of the great lecturer Vincent Scully, Jr." - Sadly, we lost Dr. Eckian on June 17, 2022.
"I've sat through dozens of dry lectures full of useful information and others that had energetic presenters that didn't know their facts. But Mr. Totten has found a way to combine genuine architectural analysis with a fascinating American story. His tale is one part college-level art appreciation course and one part professional theatre. I liked it so much, I'd attend again!"
