Italy Anniversary Trip Review: 18-Day Travel
My wife and I possess extensive travel experience and have always been inclined to plan our own trips. However, for our special 18-day anniversary trip to Italy, we aimed to ensure all details were meticulously covered.
Consequently, we explored the option of using a travel company. We harbored some concerns regarding the potential cost and service level. Fortunately, we discovered our travel company through Zicasso and the entire experience surpassed our expectations.
From start to finish, their process, attention to detail, and personal service were consistently top-notch, earning a five-star rating. They checked in on us during the trip, addressing any queries we had along the way.
I've already recommended Zicasso and our travel team to friends and family. It was truly an exceptional experience and we intend to return! Show More

Our vacation to Turkey was absolutely amazing. From beginning to end, our travel consultant from Zicasso was on top of every aspect of our tour! His thoughtful itinerary ensured our wants and desires were met and exceeded.
The tour guides’ timing was perfect and the enthusiasm, knowledge, and engagement each guide displayed made us feel like family and will always be the best part of our vacation. The personal touches from every person we met were unexpected jewels.
All the hotels were clean and safe. Additionally, they were eclectic, beautiful, of high quality, and met every expectation! We would be remiss if we did not mention the hotel near the town of Sirince. It was a stand-out for its rustic setting, wonderful people, and outstanding food! We will return!
Our agent and his company’s personal touches meant every day of our vacation was exciting, providing forever memories! Show More
Greece Couple’s Vacation Review: Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, Private Tours, History, Scenery, Local Cuisine, 16-Day Trip
My husband and I just returned from a very enjoyable 16-day visit to Greece. We utilized Zicasso’s travel agency for the trip planning and design. From initial contact and throughout our stay, the staff were very responsive in developing a tour that would meet our travel preferences and goals. We visited Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, and Crete, staying at boutique hotels, as well as a large, five-star, deluxe resort.
The highlights of the trip were the private and small group tours. The tour guides possessed an in-depth knowledge of and enthusiasm for Greek history, which they willingly shared. In addition to the quality of the tours, the travel to the various locations offered some of the most gorgeous scenery. We especially enjoyed our trip to Delphi from Athens and traveling throughout Crete because of the beautiful landscapes.
The staff at the travel agency were not only helpful during the planning stages, but readily available throughout our stay Included in the itinerary were emergency contact numbers in case we had any problems or concerns. In addition, the staff periodically reached out via email to ensure the trip was going well and to remind us that they were available if needed. It was reassuring to know we were only a phone call away from assistance. Show More

My husband and I just came back from Spain and from start to finish, everything was seamless.
During the planning process, communication with the Zicasso travel agent was easy. He made recommendations, changed plans to accommodate our wishes, and after everything was decided, we were provided with an itinerary with all the information we needed, to the last detail. Our agent took care of all reservations in Spain, so all we had to do was get our plane tickets and go!
The hotels were out of this world, with beautiful accommodations, great locations, and first-class service. It truly demonstrates that our expert agent knows his customers.
The private drivers were all on time. Our private tour guides were not only excellent and professional, but also friendly, and we truly enjoyed all the events that were planned for us, like the flamenco show and tapas tour.
We had no worries about anything during this trip because everything had been taken care of by the travel agency. Our agent kept in touch with us all the time. It was truly an amazing experience. I highly recommend him and the travel company. Show More

This trip was not only a dream come true, but exceeded our expectations in every way! Zicasso’s travel agent did an amazing job building an itinerary that met exactly what we were looking for and more.
Our time in Paris was amazing in many ways. We were able to see the beauty of Paris through a number of walking tours. We also learned a ton about the art and history of Paris, thanks in large part to our amazing private guide. She was a constant spigot of information on anything we asked her about. We were also pleasantly surprised by a foodie walking tour led by our agent. Now that is service! It was a very tasty and informative way to learn about Parisian specialties.
Our trip then moved to the countryside, with time in Dordogne, St Emilion, and Bordeaux. Our agent helped us pick the perfect locations, wineries, and hotels in each area. It was incredibly beautiful. There wasn't a place we wouldn't visit again in a heartbeat.
Overall, the trip was perfectly curated. Each and every private guide and driver was friendly, accommodating, and informative. When we had questions about anything, our agent was always available and jumped through hoops to accommodate anything we needed. This was truly a five-star vacation and memory, thanks to our agent and the travel agency. Show More

Scotland and England Luxury Trip Review: Edinburgh, Castles, Horseback Riding, Highlands, Local Cuisine, Two-Week Vacation
Zicasso’s travel agency did an absolutely amazing job putting together the trip of a lifetime for us! We are Americans and I had very specific requests: get married in a particular ruined castle in the middle of nowhere, stay in a few castles around Scotland that I selected, and ride horses in the Highlands.
Our agent put together the things I requested, plus a few suggestions that tied everything together, and the team did the work of making it all happen. Communication was excellent all the way through the process and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Show More
Japan Vacation Review: Hakone, Eight-Day Trip
My husband and I chose Japan as our honeymoon destination. I had no idea where to start and then I came across our Zicasso travel partner, started talking with our travel agent, and we began planning a trip together. She was amazing. I told her what we wanted to do and she recommended things she thought we would like. We planned the best trip together. She was a pleasure to work with and I really appreciated her. Show More
New Zealand Tour Review: Queenstown, Mt. Cook, Mt. Sunday, Wellington, Hobbiton, Lord of the Rings, Kayaking, Māori Culture, 12-Night Vacation
The Zicasso travel agent was absolutely amazing. She prepared a trip for us that included every detail I had in mind for my son and me. One thing I was absolutely firm about was being able to stay in a Hobbit hole. While other companies said this couldn't be done, Shelley did everything to make our dreams come true.
We were able to see so many of the Lord of the Rings filming sites and the Dark Sky resort at the hotel in Mt. Cook was completely mind-blowing. My review could take pages to write, but I will simply state that if you want to plan a trip to New Zealand, then this is the company to plan it with. Show More
Luxury Switzerland Family Trip Review: Zurich, Grindelwald, Zermatt, Pilatus Railway, Chocolate Workshop, 12-Day Tour
My 90-year-old father wanted to go to Switzerland and invited my wife, sister, and I. We looked into the usual commercial tours and were concerned that the pace, luggage, and strict schedule would be too much for dad at his age and capabilities. My wife found Zicasso’s travel agency and, after a lot of back and forth, our agent and his team designed the perfect vacation, with great attention to the smallest detail.
From the moment we landed in Zurich, everything worked like a fine Swiss watch. Our professional drivers were on time, handled our luggage, and gave commentary on landmarks and general Swiss trivia.
My father suffered a medical issue and spent three nights in hospital. Our agent was able to reschedule, provide translation, basic assistance, and advice to make the unscheduled event as seamless as possible.
As a side note, make sure you have medical insurance when traveling! Thank you for a trip of a lifetime! Show More

Zicasso’s travel company was fantastic from start to finish. I was contacted by our travel team within hours of filling out my Zicasso inquiry online. After describing the kind of trip I was hoping for, a sample itinerary with pictures and descriptions was sent within days. I then expressed my satisfaction with the proposal and was connected with our travel agent, who fine-tuned the details and confirmed pricing. The interaction was expeditious and satisfactory.
A couple of weeks before departure, we received our extremely detailed itinerary, containing every piece of information for each day of our trip: pre-flight instructions, flight numbers and times, drivers' names and numbers, hotel names, destinations, times, tickets, and dinner reservations; absolutely everything right at our fingertips!
I highly recommend our travel company to anyone planning a trip to Ireland, Scotland, or England! They know the area and have excellent contacts.
Our tour guides were superstars, with deep knowledge of each area and exceptional expertise. We had so much fun with each and every person we interacted with.
Our drivers were all exceptional and professional, and the automobiles were luxurious, clean, and comfortable.
I suggest you describe exactly what you hope for when planning your trip, leaving no detail regarding your unspoken expectations, and this travel agency will deliver!

Portugal Luxury Tour Review: Lisbon, Porto, Sintra, Obidos, Bussaco, Douro Valley, Food and Wine, One-Week Trip
We had a great experience with Zicasso’s travel partner and her company. Her customer service was outstanding. She was easy to schedule a call with and was responsive to our preferences in planning our itinerary. We were limited in terms of days we could spend in the country, but this was no problem. We spent three nights in Porto and three in Lisbon.
Our agent arranged transfers from the airports to our hotels, a three-hour food and wine tour in Porto, a full-day guided drive to the Douro Valley, a guided car drive from Porto to Lisbon (stopping in two locations), and a full-day guided trip to Sintra. We also scheduled a couple of free days for us to enjoy both cities. The guides were all excellent.
Our agent provided a wireless hotspot for us for the entire trip. We used this the whole time, which saved us from having to use an international cell plan. It did help to have a battery pack with us as it needed recharging halfway through the day. She even accompanied us to the airport as we were leaving (despite the 5am pickup!) and helped us navigate the tax rebate booth/system, which was a bit confusing. Show More
Ireland Group Trip Review: Private Tour, Culture, Local Cuisine, Two-Week Travel
Zicasso’s travel agent and her team were absolutely fabulous. She listened carefully to all my concerns and requests, and created the perfect tour. Ours was a private tour for four active seniors of varying levels and she created a flexible itinerary that worked for us all. Show More

Best. Vacation. Ever.
The Zicasso agent provided excellent communication, top-notch people, and perfect planning.

There is not one thing that we would have changed, except perhaps make the vacation longer. Show More
Ecuador Luxury Family Travel Review: Galapagos, Cooking Class, Local Cuisine, Rafting, Brewery, Hiking, Hot Springs, Snorkeling
Our time in Ecuador was amazing. This was the first time we had used Zicasso and did not know what to expect. We arranged a family trip with our grown children and by the end of our experience, everyone felt a connection to the country and the people.
The travel agency exceeded our expectations in every way. The luxury accommodations and the Ecuadorian meals were incredible. Our guide was knowledgeable and flexible with our needs and we had complete trust in our driver. Both were wonderful and we can't give enough accolades about our experience on the mainland of Ecuador. Galapagos was so interesting and the lunches and accommodations were lovely. We are so thankful for an outstanding experience! Show More

Zicasso’s travel partner was a pleasure to work with in setting up the itinerary and we were so happy with all of the sites, experiences, and adventures in Bali. Show More

Luxury Switzerland, Germany & Austria Travel Review: Lucerne, Jungfraujoch, Vienna, Munich, Private Tours, 12-Night Trip
We really enjoyed our trip to Switzerland, Austria, and Germany (Munich)! The Alps region was always on our list of must-visit places, so we were very happy to be able to make it there. Every town we visited and every activity we did was truly memorable.
The team at the Zicasso travel company helped us organize this trip and they were so amazing! They always responded very quickly and worked very hard to meet our detailed requests. In addition, they were very patient and understanding when we needed to make changes to our itinerary. They helped us throughout the trip, booking a last-minute paragliding experience near Innsbruck for our daughter and changing meeting times with our private tour guides.
To the team, thank you so much! Show More
