I wanted to create a special, surprise trip to Paris for my wife's 40th birthday.  Via Zicasso, I was contacted by the travel specialist. She was simply wonderful.  Over the course of many months, she worked with me to personalize an amazing experience for my wife and me.  I cannot say enough about her...

Within 24 hours I was put in contact with two companies and I began to work with two agents who put together a vacation of a lifetime.  They listened to my requests, understood what type of vacation we wanted and gave suggestions as to the best offering. Aside from our must-see destinations, they suggested a...

Our travel agent exceeded expectations with respect to our recent trip to New Zealand. All lodging accomodations were outstanding - a nice mix of 5 star hotels with "motels" with eat-in kitchens, all within budget.  Locations of the lodging were right on target - typically within walking distances of restaurants ...

The tour company we found on Zicasso was an excellent referral. They were well organized and communication was optimum. Their travel books: one for our itinerary where each day was spelled out and the other book for information about our place of travel was outstanding. We have traveled with many tour companies,...

The trip was truly magical. Reading the itinerary was exciting enough but actually getting to experience the journey far exceeded our expectations. The company was incredibly professional and the guides that we had at each location made our 20 year anniversary trip even that more memorable. Read more

We had a wonderful trip primarily due to the efforts of our travel agent from Australia and New Zealand tour company. We also had exceptionally good weather that is something no one can pre-arrange.

We are well seasoned travellers and I have been to Argentina twice before this trip. Our group of 6 unanimously agreed that this was, hands down, in our "top two" trips of a lifetime.  

Our travel agent and the tour company were just fantastic. Our agent listened to what we wanted to gain out of this trip,... Read more

Having found Zicasso online initially took me awhile to decide if I should even try to contact the agents offered for the trip we are planning. Compared to other Luxury Travel Companies, Zicasso is relatively new and I had questions about the authenticity of their agents as all of them seem to be getting more than... Read more

Our trip to Italy was wonderful and the Italy tour company was great to work with.

A great and surprising experience. I had never used a travel agent before. Thru the Zicasso experience we selected an agent, and then got the full value of her expertise.  We had a loose pre-conceived itinerary that she essentially "talked us out of," at great benefit to us. She took the things we wanted to do in... Read more

This was our first experience using Zicasso and we will use it again from now on! We were uncertain between a vacation in central America and one in Argentina and requested quotes for both. We quickly received very credible responses from four specialized agents. We decided to go to Argentina and after thanking the... Read more

WOW is the word that first comes to mind when I sum up the trip that the travel company designed for us. We chose this tour company over another submission because we felt there was more of a personal touch and we were sure right about that. I am a details person and our agent was extremely patient in working with... Read more

We went through several iterations of planning a trip to Sydney and New Zealand with the tour company.

Before deciding to go with a travel agency, we spent a lot of time doing our own research on what we wanted to do while in New Zealand and Australia. Planning an 18 day trip to countries you've never been can be quite overwhelming, which is why we sought out a travel agency to assist us. A travel agent from our... Read more

Due to our age, my wife and I wanted to plan and experience a "once-in-a-lifetime" vacation while we are still able to enjoy it. We started by contacting Zicasso in early March 2013 if I remember correctly. 2 companies responded. A co-owner of a competing company responded, made many promises, and failed to meet... Read more
