Guided Vacations & Cruise Specialist

For over 30 years, I have taken the stress out of traveling by booking Guided Vacations & Cruises for my clients around the world. I believe that traveling is the greatest thing we can do for ourselves, and I love the diversity of the world's cultures and landscapes. I listen to my clients and strive to give the best customer service possible. If I don't know something or would not be a good fit, I'm going to do my very best to find an option to make it happen. My goal is to give my clients a stress free experience and find the perfect vacation for them.  

I specialize in selling Guided Vacations, River & Ocean cruises and All-Inclusive vacation packages all over the globe. If you are looking at an All-Inclusive experience- Mexico or the Caribbean is right for you! One of my favorite destinations is Hawaii.  Allow me to assist in choosing what Hawaiian Island or Islands will match your personality best. 

There's something magical about meeting new travelers and locals while being shown the best that the destination has to offer.  Why not have someone else do the driving and you can relax and take in all the beauty and knowledge of a guided vacation!

For those who want to unpack once, River & Ocean Cruises, along with All-Inclusive vacation is a great option for visiting multiple destinations at a leisurely pace. I'm here to help you find the right cruise, guided vacation or all-inclusive match for your life style!

I have many certifications including: ~ Avalon, AMA, Viking, Scenic, Uniworld & Tauck River Cruises ~ Sandals Expert ~ Hawaii Specialist ~ Disneyland Expert ~ Skiing Colorado ~ Princess, Holland American, NCL, Oceania, Regent, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean ~ CIE Tours ~ Brendan Vacations ~ Globus Family of Brands ~ Collette Vacation ~ Tauck World Discovery ~ And many more!

One of my most recent bookings was multiple guided vacation across Europe. They are now both valued customers and dear friends.  Their trip began in Budapest with a river cruise to Amsterdam. They then went on a guided vacation with Insight Vacations to the UK for 15 days where they explored multiple towns and landmarks. I then helped them make it to Norway where they enjoyed the sights before embarking on a two week Baltic Cruise with Viking Ocean. This trip required much detailed planning including  multiple transfers, airlines, tours and cruise lines. However, I did everything to make the process seamless and enjoyable. I was so happy to hear they had an amazing time and it's these moments that make me love my role as a travel agent! Traveling is a passion of mine and when I can share the world with others, there's no better reward! I grew up in California and have lived in Colorado and now reside in Arizona. I'm thrilled to continue working in the travel industry and wouldn't know any better life style for me!

Talk with me today so we can find your next wonderful guided vacation or cruise!!

Customer Testimonials

Cheri is our knowledgeable agent!

My wife and I have done quite a few cruises using EL SOL TRAVEL in the past and the main reason is because of Cheri Sigurdson who is our travel agent there. She is a great person to work with, she gets the best rates available, fills out all paperwork, including passport info and has baggage tags, transfers and folders ready to go. All we have to do is be at the airport on time. Cheri is just a very happy person to work with and be around plus very knowledgeable. Paul and Joanne Budrick

Cheri is the best!

We have used Cheri Sigurdson for 4 or 5 years as our travel agent and she is the best. This lady has taken care of us for all our travel needs and also our two daughters and friends. She makes sure that everything is correct and never complains about our changes. We always feel good when we turn our travel plans over to her. There is no other travel company that we will use. Sincerely, Ron and Barbara Cyr

High Marks to Cheri - All Aspects of Travel

My wife Susan and I have been using Cheri Sigurdson at El Sol Travel ever since we moved to Sun Lakes ten years ago. Without hesitation, Cheri has handled every one of our many excursions throughout the world with care and expertise. She is quite knowledgeable with every aspect of the travel business and it is reassuring to know that she looks out for the welfare of each and every client and always with a smile and an even disposition. I would not consider using anyone else for my (our) travel needs. I give Cheri high marks on all aspects related to travel and give her permission to use this endorsement as testimony to her competence and dedication. Regards, Michael and Susan Carter

Cheri has been our travel consultant for more than ten years. During this period she has guided us on both land, sea and river cruise tours, all which exceeded our expectations. She is very detailed in the information she provides and is always able to answer all questions that arise. When it is time to travel Cheri always presents a complete and detail travel package. Her expertise as a travel consultant is absolutely excellent. We have never been disappointed with her recommendations or product.

My husband, John and I have traveled around the world using the advice of many experienced Travel Agencies. None, however; have assisted us as much as our Travel Consultant, Cheri. Cheri has helped us over the past 13+ years. We value her advise and knowledge of the travel industry. You can't be in better hands when planning a trip then aligning yourself with Cheri and the folks at Travel Leaders.

Cheri Knows the Travel Business
I first met Cheri Sigurdson in 2009 when she booked me the best cabin for my Panama Canal cruise. Twelve additional trips later she always knows my questions or finds the answers as I trust her knowledge implicitly. I always leave on a trip knowing I have everything I need for a great trip and I consider her a friend as well as my travel agent. In addition Cheri and Tammy write a monthly "Ask Your Agents" column for the local Sun Lakes Splash offering invaluable tips and information for future travel. This shows the extra effort Cheri puts into her work and she is a real asset to El Sol Travel!
