Gilbert, Arizona Travel Agent

An independent agent with Cruises & Tours, Unlimited in Jacksonville, FL, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Romance Travel Specialist

I am an avid traveler and passionate about my business. It brings me personal joy and satisfaction helping couples enjoy the process of planning a Destination Wedding and/or Honeymoon.

I married my best friend in June 2015 and we are living our dream in sunny Arizona. I have lived all over the West Coast and lived in beautiful Southern Oregon for over a decade. I have 3 wonderful children, and 2 fur children.

I enjoy living my life to the fullest by experiencing the best this world has to offer whether it be a great meal, a performance, or traveling around this amazing planet.

 

Why stress about your Destination Wedding and/or Honeymoon when I can help you?

There is nothing as special as your wedding day and honeymoon. You will look back on this day for the rest of your life. I love helping couples make their dream Destination Weddings and Honeymoons a reality without extra cost or stress.

I am a Sandals Certified Specialist, AM Resorts Master Agent, and Karisma Travel Partner. I know the resorts and locations that fit your needs and desires. Tropical destinations like the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America are my specialty but I have planned Destination Weddings and Honeymoons all over the globe.

When you work with me you are the priority. I don't work for the resorts, I work for you. Let me make your dream a reality, contact me now!

 

Our 20th Anniversary Trip was MAGICAL!

Cindi did an AMAZING job at putting together our 20th Wedding Anniversary Trip! We so appreciated her taking over the planning for us. All we had to do was show up to each of the special meals and events that she scheduled for us. We had an absolutely Magical time and couldn't have done it without Cindi! We will use her every time!!!!

My Reviews

Japan Honeymoon Extravaganza

Reviewed By Amanda - Gilbert,AZ | Traveled to Tokyo ~ Japan ~ East and Southeast Asia
Cindi did an amazing job getting us the best places for our honeymoon in Japan. She worked with us to find a great place in our price range with the perfect local. She called to verify our reservation with the hotel and got us a nice upgrade for our stay. We ended up on the special Artist floor at the Park Hotel Tokyo that had a view of the Tokyo tower and you could even see Fuji on a clear day. Cindi was a breeze to get a hold of and responded to our emails very quickly. She also found us sites with options to add on side trips or extra excursions. Definitely recommending her to friends and family

My Key to a Great Vacation

Reviewed By No Nickname - Arizona | Traveled to
I am a do-it-yourselfer but that no longer applies to my vacation plans. After spending over a week trying to find a workable combination of airfare, hotel, car and Disney Land tickets I finally cried uncle and set out to find a travel agent. I reached out to 10 agents and no one came near the responsiveness and understanding of exactly what I was looking for except for Cindi Sanden at Awaken Travels. Cindi gave me many opportunities and wound up saving me over $1,200 (in addition to a lot of headaches) for my trip. She is now my one and only travel agent. I will never try to do it on my own again with her in my corner!

Let Cindi do the planning!!

Reviewed By Mrs. P - Peoria, AZ | Traveled to Montego Bay ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Cindi was fantastic to work with. She was very responsive any time we had a question, and very knowledgeable about the various areas we were considering and the resort chains themselves. She truly partnered with us and worked as an advocate for us to make our Jamaican honeymoon terrific. She was able to secure better pricing than anything we tried independently. It was so nice to turn it over to her and know we were getting the best results. We are actually planning another little trip with some friends and just contacted Cindi to work her magic for us again.

She Took Care Of Everything

Reviewed By Sean - Chandler, AZ | Traveled to
We wanted to go to an All Inclusive - Adult Only - Resort in Jamaica. Way too many options for a non traveler like me to know what is good & real vs. a touristy rip off. Not only did she show us the "Good Places"... But she got EVERYTHING lined up. She got us freebies, and discounts, and most importantly: She monitored our travel. We were never "alone" during our transition into and then out of complete and total relaxation! Well done Cindi!

Anniversary Trip was Perfect!

Reviewed By KTEvans - Mesa, AZ | Traveled to
Cindi helped my husband and I plan our 20th wedding anniversary trip and really went above and beyond for us. From sending us a little gift before we left to having perfectly planned and printed itineraries for us so that we got to do all the things we had planned for. Thank you Cindi and Awaken Travels for a very memorable, fun and stress free experience from start to finish! Thank you Cindi!!!

Simply the Best!

Reviewed By Kim - Chandler, Arizona | Traveled to
Cindi is the best. She looks for travel that fits your schedule. She found a flight that would get me home quicker for the same price. We want to take a river tour in Europe at some point, and she gave me wonderful information for my husband and I to read and look over. She knows this is a "dream trip" and still researches possibilities for us. I would highly recommend Cindi for ANY travel needs.

Awesome, romantic 10 Year

Reviewed By gabet - Gilbert, AZ | Traveled to Saint Lucia ~ Africa
Cindi was great to work with. She planned our 10 year anniversary trip to St Lucia. We priced it out prior to contacting agents and not only did she beat our best price, she was very thorough and thoughtful. We stayed at Jade Mnt for a few nights and Cindi wrote a personal letter to the GM of the hotel explaining our trip and requesting them to "take care" of us. When we arrived we learned that we were upgraded to one of their expansive pool suites, basically a $1000 upgrade. Thank you Cindi for all the help, we will be in touch soon for our next trip. :) Gabe and Cindy
