“I have 35 years of experience in the travel industry, and I can’t wait for the next 35 years to come! I absolutely love what I do – travel is my passion.
Our company is a full service travel agency, which means we specialize in both leisure and corporate travel, as well as other more defined areas of travels such as Destination Weddings, Disney, Cruise, Sandals, etc.
For our corporate travel management program we specialize in account management, cost savings operations, and business travel planning; consulting and development. Our varied programs, technologies and vast experience allows us to work on customized solutions for all ranges of travel budgets.
Travel can be very time consuming and costly for companies who do not use the services of a travel management company. Travel Leaders of Fargo specializes in corporate travel, and with various technologies, resources and the ability to realize savings through heavily negotiated discounts, we are able to save companies both time and money in their travel arrangements.

ABOUT | Cindy moved to the Fargo-Moorhead area after high school and originally planned to build a career in the medical field. But by the age of 19, after working in a hotel and travel agency in the area, she realized her passion was travel. Beginning in the mid-1980s, Tyo worked as a travel agency manager in Crookston, MN, and Fargo-Moorhead. Tyo then spent several years in Los Angeles, CA, before returning to Fargo – first to manage her current agency, then becoming the agency’s owner in 2003.
Cindy has found herself in elite and rarified company, as one of the only people ever to win both of Travel Leaders’ highest honors: Associate of the Year and The Golden Legacy Award. The Golden Legacy Award ranks as the single highest honor any Travel Leaders Associate may receive and celebrates the award winner’s lifetime career achievements.
How does the reality of your job differ from people’s perception of it?
Because I travel the world for work: I’m just on vacation. In some ways it makes sense, as I truly love what I do, but I’m putting in 12-14 hour days in meeting rooms and on busses when I travel for work, like most people who travel for work. I just so happen to be having my meetings in Cancun or Prague!
What’s your “why”?
The moment I see everything I love about travel in someone else’s expression for the first time. Like my son when he got done bungee jumping for the first time in New Zealand to observing the transformation of a client as they conquer their fear of heights to go zip lining in Costa Rica. The knowledge and experience gained, and the doors opened through travel is priceless.
