It was very professionally done with audio systems so you could hear the guide and even the showroom was fun while we waited for the tour to start. You can play instruments in the showroom. The tour covered two buildings from the "wood room" to the final... More

Absolutely awesome experience! The staff was knowledgable and very friendly. We enjoyed the factory tour and our guide was pretty good too. He knew what he was talking about. I was impressed by the people in the factory as well. The precision and the attention to detail that the workers use when building their guitars was impressive. They were very... More

I'm the only guitar player in the family but the entire family enjoyed it! They show you how they build guitars from start to finish. They encourage photos and the best part is the Visitor Center before and after the tour. Hang out and play everything they have! From $ to $$$$! Take your dream guitar for a spin! And... More

I don't play guitar, but WOW! do I wish I did and I wish I had a Taylor. This tour was so comprehensive and easy for even non-players to understand. The process is state-of-the-art, and I learned so much. Arrive VERY early. When the tour fills....it is full for the day. We arrived at 12:20 for the 1 PM tour.... More

We arrived early because we heard the tours filled up early, which they did. It was so interesting and informative. The quality of workmanship was incredible. We were able to see all aspects of the building of... More

Taylor Guitar has a very interesting tour. You get to see all aspects of the building of a guitar. No pressure afterwords to buy anything. Guides are very well versed in the whole process of building a Guitar. I have gone 3 times with friends from out of town and they have been amazed.
