Sun Lakes, Arizona Travel Agent

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 Knows the Travel Business

Reviewed By Susan - Sun Lakes, AZ | Traveled to USA
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!

Italian Plans and Fun

Reviewed By Kc - Sun Lakes | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe

She knows her stuff about getting people where they need to be at and on time to participate in the activities of a group. She works the time lines and air transports to accommodate this which we know is difficult to say the least.
We've already scheduled something else with Cheri and will probably schedule another. Having everything handy (telephone numbers in case of what ever) and names are great back ups.
She is the best we have ever experienced and made trip planning not scary.

Most Recent Outstanding Trip Made to the Baltic

Over the past six or seven years we have used Cheri exclusively as our travel agent and adviser. She has an excellent understanding of all phases of travel, but for us, her knowledge of cruising has been the most beneficial. She has consistently matched our needs with a keen ability to get us a “bargain” price at both cruises and lodgings. She is pleasant and always available to her clients. We have traveled frequently all over the world and I can say without any doubt, we have found Cheri the best person to choose for all of our travel needs. I am sure this would hold true for anyone.
