Tragically, Rick Carter died on July 26 2022.
Visitation was held August 2.
May his memory be a blessing.

Great addition to Frank Lloyd Wright house tour. Fun and interesting trip around the neighborhood. Nice to be able to select length of his tour, thirty minutes or all afternoon.

My husband and I love Oak Park and decided to spend a weekend there for our anniversary. I commissioned Rickshaw Rick to take us around town for an architectural tour of Frank Lloyd Wright (and other architects) - he did not disappoint! He’s extremely knowledgeable about the history of the town and a delight to be around. Rick picked us up at Bishops Hall where we were staying at 11am and we didn’t get back til almost 7p - that’s how much we were enjoying the adventure! Throughout the day we stopped for lunch and a tour of FLW’s home & studio. He even went out of his way to surprise us with kolachys from our favorite bakery in town. I highly recommend Rickshaw Rick!

Thanks & more congratulations to you both, Tiffany & Joe! What a privilege for me to be able to share what I like about a place you both like so much. I'm so happy that you had a great Anniversary Labor Day Weekend and that you selected the Ultimate Wright Experience Tour to help celebrate it. Wishing you nothing but the best as you prepare for parenthood. Hope the kolachys help to tide you over to the big birthday celebration! Come on back anytime!

Great tour of Oak Park where Frank Lloyd Wright build quite a few houses and had his work studio. Rick explained extremely well details concerning Wright's Prairie School philosophy: horizontal lines, gently sloping roofs, ornamental windows. The story about Wright's life and his professional life were great too. Rick really knows his stuff. Also he has a sunny personality and a good sense of humor. He could have been less critical about Wright though although this does not lower my grade (excellent) for the tour. It was a real pleasure to go around Oak Park with Rick.

Tom, thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. I'm really glad that you enjoyed things as much as you did! Thanks also for understanding that everything comes from a good place, even my criticisms. Without feedback we don't learn from our history but merely repeat it so to me it's important to at least draw out a few shortcomings. It helps me and hopefully others remember that even Mr. Wright was a human being, so maybe it's OK for all of us to dream about being the very best at something. You and your observations are welcome back anytime...so please DO come back!

As Rick points out Wright enjoyed hiding the entrance to his houses. In a way this applies to Rick. As I was walking down Forest Ave in Oak Park ,Rick's entrance was as he turned a corner. I thought he was selling ice cream, delivering pizza or an aging surfer looking for waves. The surprise was this big friendly guy in a Hawaian shirt and shorts was hiding a storehouse of information about Oak Park, Wright, other architects, the people who commissioned and lived in these houses and their stories. For example after Thomas Gale died, his widow did not want to continue to live in the first house Wright had built for them so Wright bought the property to build a small jewel of a house just for her.

As you ride or walk it is apparent that Rick is a well known, well regarded figure in the community including the staff at the Wright House and Museum.

With Rick you see the details as well as the big picture so it is a holistic experience. Think about tours you have taken; can you remember the name of your guide? -usually not. For sure you will remember Rick as well as the Wright houses.

Nothing like kicking it back in a rickshaw and letting a clever guide take you on a delightful romp through Oak Park history while enjoying the visuals of FLW's influence. It's more than architectural tidbits and photo-ops. Hop on Rick's magic carpet and enjoy as I did.

My friends and I did the combination tour in Oak Park and found that while seeing the home and studio was great, we did not have the best tour guide. The self guided audio tour was a bit disappointing as well. We ran into Rick giving a tour and thought his information was great and when family came to visit booked a tour with him. Getting a personal tour at a great rate was ideal for us. We enjoyed the information including some background and history of Chicago. Rick knows his stuff!

We took a 2 hour guided and narrated tour of Frank Lloyd Wright homes in Oak Park in Rick's Rickshaw. It was fabulous! Entertaining and enlightening. Rick's amazingly detailed knowledge of architect Wright's rather convoluted path to fame was delivered in a light and lively manner that brought him to life for us. One of the best tours we've ever done! Oak Park is a totally charming neighborhood--and touring through the area in a peddled rickshaw was the perfect was to see and savor it.

I had a wonderful experience in my impromptu tour with Rickshaw Rick. I wasn't planning on taking the tour but as I was leaving the Frank Lloyd Wright house tour he was outside with his pedicab and I wanted to see more of the neighborhood and downtown area. Rickshaw Rick is not just a tour guide--he is a wealth of information and an engaging individual. Before I knew it 2 hours had flown by and I had been fully immersed in the history of the area. I am looking forward to my next visit to the Chicagoland area and another tour. If this man offers you a tour I recommend you take it. You won't be disappointed!!

I came to Oak Park for the FLW, and Ricks tour was a great bookend to my experience. I had already hoofed it around the neighborhood once, so being chauffeured around was nice. Rick is a great storyteller, and you get a more colorful and multidimensional narrative than the "official" tour. When I return, I'll definitely take a ride with Rick again.
