Hi! I’m Cindi Taylor. Welcome to Taylored Tours.
I’ve always loved seeing new places and meeting new people, and sharing these experiences with friends. As my travel experiences and expertise grew, I often found myself helping friends and family plan their own vacations.
While growing up, I spent my weekends and summers on our family farm in Illinois, where we grew a variety of fruit and vegetables. My extended family also farmed in the area, producing dairy and pork and pretty much anything one might expect farms in the Midwest to produce. As a result, I was always interested, while traveling, in learning about local agriculture practices and culinary customs.
The art of making wine has also been very intriguing to me. Ten years ago, I started to take viticulture and enology courses and learned how to make wine. This hobby turned into a passion and five years ago my family made the decision to plant vineyards on our farm land. I routinely travel back to Illinois to participate in pruning, grape harvesting, and wine making.
My personal interest and experience in culinary and wine adventures has translated into some unique opportunities, both domestically and internationally, for clients who are interested in trips that feature great food and great wine. But my ‘mission’ is broader than that - I help clients customize trips based on their personal interests.
My goal is to help clients be comfortable while moving out of their comfort zones - by providing support while they ‘stretch’, learning and growing by trying new things. I can plan vacations of all sizes, for couples, groups of friends, or solo travelers who want to book into a group, which is a great way to meet people. The experienced traveler who doesn’t have time to plan all of the details of their trip can also benefit from Taylored Tours’ services.
Taylored Tours provides a personalized travel concierge service, from helping you plan a dream vacation ‘taylored’ to YOUR taste - to providing support and resources in case any unforeseen bumps in the road occur during your trip.
If you are ready to see the world and immerse yourself in new experiences and cultures, let’s plan your next travel adventure!
Discover the richness of travel by experiencing new and exciting getaways. I encourage my clients to immerse themselves in the local culture when they travel, try different foods, and talk to the locals. I talk to so many people when I travel and I ask a lot of questions, but because of my inquisitiveness, I've met so many friendly people and I have learned a wealth of information from them and discovered some pretty amazing places based on their recommendations that I can recommend to my clients.
The best part of my job is asking questions. A good travel agent won't make blind recommendations. A good travel agent will ask questions, dig in for detail and really understand what works best for you and your family. Your vacation days and travel dollars are precious, so why put your faith in a faceless, nameless website? You deserve expert advice and value for your dollar. When you plan your travel with Taylored Tours, you are embarking on a trip filled with memorable experiences, not “just a vacation”. I will take the time to get to know you and “Taylor” your travel to what you want. I will go the extra mile for you…from suggesting the best restaurants, hiking trails, wineries, etc, to being your advocate when you travel. Taylored Tours is YOUR personal travel concierge.
