I was completing a 3 year assignment in Ireland at the end of March and wanted to enjoy an extended (6 week) European vacation before returning to USA. Since I had used Zicasso before for trips to Peru/Paraguay and Italy with good experience, I contacted them for assistance. They recommended this travel agency for... Read more

Dear Zicasso: My trip to Spain and Portugal was just superb made so by the excellent and caring guidance by my agent at this tour company. She figuratively took me by the hand and guided me all through a wonderful adventure in Spain.
This was a memory trip for me in that my wife and I did a similar... Read more
This trip surpassed our expectations. We have traveled pretty extensively in the US, Europe and South America. I am pretty much a do-it-yourselfer and do a LOT of research into everywhere we go. We like to stay in unique properties and do not enjoy being herded along with a big group into the usual tourist traps... Read more
We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and we wanted a special vacation to remember the occasion.

Not only did the... Read more
We had a wonderful trip! Olaia, our Spain and Portugal travel agent, perfectly planned the trip for us. I told her where I wanted to go and she made it all possible in the time frame I gave her even suggesting other places we would be (and were) interested in. She catered our trip to our taste and provided the... Read more

I traveled with my family and we all had a fantastic holiday in Spain and Lisbon. I was initially apprehensive dealing with a company via the internet but all was executed very professionally.

Fantastic trip, beautifully organized. This travel company took our bare-bones specifications (contemporary art, architecture, food, and music) and created a trip that felt truly personalized including intimate experiences we could never have arranged on our own. Hotels were ideally situated in each city we visited... Read more
Five stars with an extra asterisk star for going the extra mile!
As a background, I've taken the family (my wife and 3 girls) on many family vacations over the years and frequently use agencies to take some of the stress off of me for driving and transfers and tour guide selection. Although it can be a bit... Read more
Planning for a 5-week trip that covered most of Spain and some of Portugal was very daunting. What I feared the most was to finish the trip and find myself regretting that I did not see something that I would later find as important and meaningful. This fear was not to be founded. Our agent was extraordinary in... Read more
We had an amazing vacation in Portugal thanks to our agents. I contacted the company in August through Zicasso and after a few emails about us (family of 4 with active 6 and 12 year old boys who love history and nature) she planned an amazing trip. Our entire vacation was perfect and hassle free. I can't stress... Read more
