Hillary Taylor

6 Years of experience

Spurred by an innate love for adventure, culture and exploring all the world has to offer, Hillary left a job in real estate private equity to pursue her dream of sharing the unique joys of traveling with others.

Travel is part of Hillary’s DNA, passed down by parents and grandparents who wanted their children’s experiences to extend beyond their own backyards. At an early age, Hillary can remember taking in the mesmerizing Russian river dance with her grandparents on her first Scandinavian adventure, traipsing through Roman ruins in Pompeii with her parents, and witnessing the incredible beauty and wildlife of the Maasai Mara in Kenya with classmates and teachers. The wanderlust of her childhood continued to grow into a lifelong passion in college through a study abroad experience on the eastern coast of Spain and a six-week backpacking trip across Europe. And now, Hillary is excited to begin sharing that passion with others.

Hillary was brought on to The Simple Sol team, led by Taylor Madison (founder) and Angie Dickson (partner), to design curated and carefully crafted luxury vacations, honeymoons and destination weddings. She utilizes her own experiences and attention to detail to create culture-rich, meaningful and highly personalized travel for her clients.

When Hillary is not traveling, you can typically find her trying one of the ever-growing list of new restaurants in Dallas.

What is your most memorable travel experience?

Visiting Zambia and Botswana is easily one of my most memorable trips. From seeing the African culture firsthand to seeing the Big Five on safari with my own eyes, this trip absolutely stirred my soul. There is something about those experiences that leave you speechless!

What does your perfect vacation day look like?

The best day of a vacation is marked by a run through town early in the morning, sipping coffee at an outdoor café, getting lost amid the sites and the culture, and ending the day with a fantastic meal native to wherever I am!

Travel Tip

  • A hand-painted piece of art from a local vendor always makes for the best souvenir because it captures the culture and the heart of the place you got it!
