For more than 50 years my wife and I have been inveterate, but usually independent, travelers.  With little time to study and prepare for a once in a lifetime trip to South Africa from the USA, we turned to a comprehensive agency, to which we had been referred by Zicasso. They made all of the plans for us, aside...

Overall, the trip that was custom planned our travel agent was nothing short of fantastic!  As this was my first Zicasso experience (and a big gamble as it was our honeymoon) I was a bit skeptical, however after receiving the extremely detailed email from our agent, and a long "getting to know you" call, I knew we...

The trip was really better than we could have ever imagined. We planned a trip at the very last minute (about five weeks before departure) and our travel agent and her team put together an amazing itinerary within a day or two that completely met our particular needs and desires. She could not have been better, or...

Our Africa tour company was very impressive.

We had an amazing experience traveling to Tanzania this past summer with the help of a tour operator that we chose through Zicasso.

Trip of a lifetime! After filling out the form on Zicasso, we had two travel companies send us a bid and we went with a South Africa tour operator. This travel company did a terrific job. As time was tight, (we booked about 5 -6 weeks before leaving) I did not have a chance for much back and forth with our travel... Read more

Our travel company was absolutely brilliant! From the very beginning they offered something different; at the price range my wife and I were looking at, most itineraries in Kenya were circuit safaris around the country involving a lot of driving, and only 2 days in the Maasai Mara. Our main goal was to see the... Read more
