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

My husband, son and I wanted something free and interesting to do in the San Diego area and found the Taylor Guitar Factory. 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.

It has been my pleasure to be associated with one of the founders of this amazing company. I have seen some examples of their products and the attention to detail is artistic. The company has grown by the efforts of the team they have assembled. But keeping things in perspective, this began as a two man operation with lots of... More

We discovered this quite by chance as we bought a Taylor guitar for our son at the Guitar Centre in San Diego & the staff there told us about this place. We did the tour and it was one of the highlights of our trip - we were totally mesmerised by the staff we met & their passion or guitars... More

We own a Taylor guitar and it was a very hot week in the San Diego area so we were looking for something of interest to the two guitar players in the family and indoors and we all loved this tour.

This manufacturing plant is in my home town, and never knew about. The showroom is a fantastic blend of sales showroom, and guitar history. The staff are very low key and will not bother you unless you want help. If you play they invite you to pick a guitar and try it out. We took the free tour, everyday at... More

Interesting tour of the Taylor factory. This is all on the factory floor and you see a that goes into making their guitars. Not to be missed if you are in the area - about 20 minutes from San Diego but an easy drive.
