Ireland Specialist, Europe Travel, Culinary, Group
Welcome to Taylored Tours, a travel agency and local winery tour business in Durango, Colorado. I’m Cindi Taylor, a travel and wine enthusiast with a passion to help people relax and enjoy local wineries and to help people take the stress out of planning their dream vacations. Over the years of working in a stressful job, I escaped by making wine, studying viticulture and enology, and traveling and planning trips around the globe for my family and friends. My mission is to help people travel more and have better travel experiences. My best travel advice: Be comfortable out of your comfort zone and just go for it. Immerse yourself in new experiences and cultures and wherever you go, go with all your heart.
I started the Taylored Tours travel agency because I LOVE helping others plan a vacation they will remember for years. Ever been down the overwhelming rabbit hole of researching a vacation? I strive to make clients’ vacation planning easy so they can save time, sit back and relax and leave the details to us. Along with an expertly planned vacation, Taylored Tours will advocate for clients should any issues arise during their trip. Finally, I love to hear about their vacation when they get back. Nothing makes me happier than to hear about an awesome time clients had on their dream vacation.
I encourage my clients to immerse themselves in the local culture when they travel, try different foods, and talk to the locals. I talk to so many people when I travel and I ask a lot of questions, but because of my inquisitiveness, I've met so many friendly people and I have learned a wealth of information from them and discovered some pretty amazing places based on their recommendations that I can recommend to my clients.
I am an Ireland Specialist. I love everything about Ireland: the food, the scenery, the history, but most of all...the friendly people. I’d love to help you experience this amazing country. I plan travel to Ireland for groups, couples, or solo travelers on coach tours, hiring private chauffeurs, or creating self-drive vacations, and I also take groups to Ireland myself. The next group trip is “Castles, Whiskey, and Pints”, a tour that takes you across Ireland as you visit Dublin, Kilkenny, Killarney, Dingle, and Galway and get a real flavor and understanding of Irish folklore and enjoy some craic and music at the local pubs. However you decide to travel to Ireland, you'll be welcomed with that legendary Irish charm, regaled with stories and persuaded that the only way to do this place justice would be to plan a return visit.
Italy, especially Tuscany, is also near and dear to my heart. If your desire is to discover artistic masterpieces in the churches and galleries of Florence, uncover Rome’s iconic sites, relax on the Amalfi Coast, or learn to cook traditional Italian pasta in Tuscany, Taylored Tours will set you on the right track. Your route will be ”taylored” to your own interests. I can help you discover the hidden side of Italy, as well as the key highlights. The most recent group trip that I took to Italy was, “Walk, Wine & Dine Through Tuscany”, where the group explored picturesque Tuscan towns, while enjoying the world-renowned food and wine of the area. The group enjoyed their stay at an agricultural estate that dated back to the 12th century and they were immersed in cultural classes and tours including a traditional Italian cooking class, olive oil production tour, Cinta Senese tour and tasting, cheese making tour and tasting and winery tours and tastings. Whether you wish to travel with a group, hire a private chauffeur, or drive yourself, Taylored Tours will help make your trip to Italy memorable.
As a Certified Hawaii Destination Specialist, I can help plan a “taylor”-made vacation to Hawaii just for you. Kauai is my favorite island...its lush landscapes and pristine beaches are a feast for the senses. Whether you’re looking for hiking adventures or snorkeling rentals, call me today to start planning your vacation.
Another favorite is combining love of travel with appreciation of wine. Wine Cruises pair the two perfectly! Taylored Tours offers travel services to include wine cruises. Whether you have a seasoned appreciation for fine wine, or simply indulge in a sip here and there, this is a wonderful way to uncork the traditions of the local culture and learn about the region you’re visiting. European River Cruises transport you to the best of worlds - fascinating history, art and culture, stunning landscapes, and fine wine and food.
Why work with me? The best part of my job is asking questions. A good travel agent won't make blind recommendations. A good travel agent will ask questions, dig in for detail and really understand what works best for you and your family. Your vacation days and travel dollars are precious, so why put your faith in a faceless, nameless website? You deserve expert advice and value for your dollar. Taylored Tours is here for you...let’s plan your next vacation!

"My husband and I had an amazing vacation to Italy with Taylored Tours! The trip was concentrated in the Tuscany countryside and the Cinque Terre area along the coast. Cindi is the most organized and thorough person we know. She had every detail covered, and the trip went seamlessly. She had a fun outing or activity planned for every day, but we also had some free time. We saw some amazing sights, and the trip was very relaxing. We also met some wonderful people on the trip. We highly recommend Cindi and are taking another vacation through Taylored Tours this year!" Geri W.
