“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 us every day, but we also had some free time. We saw some amazing sites, 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!”
“Taylored Tours! Cindi is wonderful to work with! She set us up with everything we could have needed for our trip - packing list, international travel checklist, all the entry instructions and the travel instructions and wonderful info about our hotel and the area we were staying. She genuinely wanted us to have a wonderful and relaxing time. I couldn’t be happier with my experience!” -Caitlin D.
“I recently went to Italy, which I’ve been a dream of mine for years. I used Taylored Tours to plan my trip, and I’m so thankful that I did. I had previously tried planning my own trip and quickly got overwhelmed with all the information and quit. Cindi took care of everything for me, all I had to do was get on the plane and go. There was something planned for us to do and see every day. It was such a remarkable trip and I met new friends, as well. I’m looking forward to using Taylored Tours again later this year for my next adventure. If you love to travel, but just don’t like all the work and effort that goes into planning it, I recommend contacting Taylored Tours.” -Patricia K.
“My husband and I have gone on two group tours planned by Cindi, and she is an absolute pleasure to work with all around. She finds the best places to go, see, eat and drink, and if you end up on a tour with her she’s wonderful to travel with. Cindi clearly does a TON of research for these trips and it really shows. This latest Ireland trip was full of nice hotels and restaurants and private group pub tours. We even had a misty Irish coffee morning in a tiny pub with live music, just for us! She’ll be doing all our travel planning from here on out!!”
