This trip to New Zealand was the time of our lives. We have traveled extensively but never with an agent doing the all nitty-gritty suggestions and arranging. We are now spoiled. Our agent listened to our interests and desires and pointed us to activities that might interest us. We then choose those that were appealling to us and he proceeded to organize the trip. This included precise information on the mode of transportation to and from each destination activity. The itinerary was planned and accepted. While en route, we choose to change a plan and this presented no problem and we were quickly accommodated.Show More
The travel company, travel planner, did a great job of introducing us to some of the highlights of Argentina on our first ever visit there. Hotels, excursions, transfers, and in-country flights were all arranged and were reliable. A few excursions had to altered at the last minute due to weather, beyond human control. We communicated several times with the travel planner via anApp to make sure all was well. Our preferences and interests were considered in selecting excursions and planning an itinerary just for us.Show More
Hooray for the trip designer and his fabulous team. We traveled as 4 couples to Argentina for our first time visit and what a success! From the planning to our final departure every move was coordinated flawlessly. The itinerary was perfectly matched to our interests and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. All the guides were terrific - both knowledgeable and personable. We learned so much from each of them. We look forward to our return to South America and will certainly work with the trip designer again. We had no hassles or stress the entire trip. As we are a bit older I felt confident that if needed the designer or his staff would be there immediately. This certainly makes traveling so much easier and so worth the money. FANTASTIC trip!Show More
This is definitely the best trip in my life. I loved every part of it.Our agent was fantastic. She was very attentive during the entire process. She gave us helpful and honest advice.She would respond to our numerous e-mails and request promptly.We had a very minor issue where the pick up shuttle from our hotel in Torres del Paines was a little late, however she took care of it right away and we were able to get to the hotel at a reasonable time.The hotel she chose for us in Patagonia was fantastic. She got us a superior room with a breathtaking view. Being able to wake up to that view of the mountains every morning was priceless.The room was simple but very clean and comfortable. Food and drinks were great. No complaints.All the excursions were wonderful and all the guides were so kind and knowledgeable.We were a bit worried about staying in Santiago de Chile, because of the protest, however the local guide was reassuring and she gave us a safe tour of the city. It was wonderful.Show More
Our recent trip to Chile and Argentina was fantastic, made all the more pleasurable by the excellent planning and customer service provided by our trip planner at the travel company. He took the time to listen to what we wanted to do in terms of touring and activities and developed a customized itinerary that surpassed our expectations. This made for an excellent combination of visiting big cities, small towns, wineries, mountains, lakes, glaciers and everything in between, exceeding their goal and our desire to avoid the usual tourist traps and explore the area through meaningful local experiences meeting real people. The accommodations were excellent, travel between locations made simple, recommendations and booking activities and restaurants was superb. The planner consistently checked in with us throughout the two week plus trip to ensure things were going well and provided many ongoing recommendations along the way. All the details were handled with the highest level of customer service and professionalism. To top it all off, the planner personally visited us on our last day in Buenos Aires at our hotel to say hello and meet in person. A perfect way to end our travels. We cannot imagine a nicer trip or more memorable vacation!Show More
Our trip to Chile and Argentina was carefully planned to suit our independent traveler approach. The travel company we used was prompt, efficient and planned a great itinerary for us. The real test to the competence and care of this agency came from the personal contact which was kept through the trip. It became really urgent when we were stranded in our cruise ship unable to get off in Usuahia and then Punta Arenas due to the Coronavirus restrictions. The staff took a personal and concerted effort to find us flights and connections to make it back home and we made it back thanks to their dedication. I highly recommend this group and hope to finish my trip with them at a later date.Show More
This was an outstanding trip and it went exceptionally well. Every hotel, transfer, and tour was excellent and on time.. There were no major issues to deal with and, except for the fact COVIS-19 pretty much closed down Santiago by the time we got there our last day, all went just as planned. I am very impressed with the plan, service and support we got from this travel agency and would highly recommend them to others.Show More
The travel planner was a wonderful hostess, and the trip was amazing. Easily accessible and communicative whenever we had questions during the trip, as well as before while we were planning our honeymoon. There were numerous experiences that we most likely would not have had the pleasure of having if it weren't for the travel company and planner, including the fabulous Asado Experience, Aguas Arriba Lodge in Patagonia, Kayaking in Bariloche, personal wine tastings in Chile, a cultural experience with local north-east of Mendoza, and so many more. Highly recommend the trip for anyone, as well as the planner to anyone!Show More

Travel Review: Argentina Multi-Generational Family Luxury Trip, Buenos Aires, El Calafate, Iguazu Falls
Our trip to Argentina ended three weeks ago and we are still thinking about it.
This was our third family trip (parents, adult children, and grandchildren), and nothing is better than being altogether, seeing, doing, and learning fun and interesting things.
Although we are familiar with Argentina, we needed someone to plan this trip (mainly because of our grandchildren 14 and 12) so that all activities will appeal to all generations. We also needed a local expert for help with logistics and getting all of us from place to place, reservations and ticketing, and being there for any problem that we may have encountered (we had one and they solved it quickly).
Our trip lasted twelve days, and we went to Buenos Aires, Califate, and Iguazu.
I generally do not send reviews, but I want to thank this travel company and our trip planner for their efforts in planning and executing a great trip.
Planning an individualized tour in a country that one does not know an agent is risky. I found this company through Zicasso. I did my best to investigate them and felt satisfied that I made the right choice. Now that my trip is over, and after my dealings with them, I want to say I was extremely happy and would recommend this travel planner and this travel company to anyone wanting to go to Argentina.

Travel Review: Luxury Argentina & Chile Tour, Mendoza Wine Tasting & Exploring, Hiking in Torres del Paine & on Glacier
My wife and I recently returned from 3+ weeks in Chile and Argentina. We started in the Atacama Desert area of Northern Chile, (staying at an all-inclusive), then on to Torres del Paine (staying at the Atacama's sister hotel), then to Estancia Christina, then to El Calafate (staying at a chateau), then to El Chalten, Mendoza (staying at a Wine Lodge), and Buenos Aires. Our primary objective was to experience the rugged beauty and hiking through Patagonia while enjoying a true first-class travel experience. WE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE THRILLED WITH THE TRIP. IT WAS PERFECT IN ALL RESPECTS. Our trip planner and his travel team delivered the most amazing experience imaginable. If you are thinking of traveling in Patagonia, you MUST stay at the all-inclusive in Atacama and Patagonia. Five-star service, food, rooms, guide services, and more. We hiked over 100 miles in the 12 days of hiking and enjoyed gourmet meals and exquisite rooms/service.
Not only did this travel team do a superior job planning our trip, but they also followed up with us every day or two to ensure we were thrilled with our trip. Every transfer went off without a hitch. The trip planner and his team are totally committed to delivering an incredible experience. I give them the highest recommendation. You will NOT be disappointed!
Finally, a word of praise for Zicasso. We have used them 3 times to assist in matching us with in-country trip planners: Australia/New Zealand, Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos, and Argentina/Chile. We have had consistently superior experiences as a result of their guidance! I recommend using them to plan your next high-end private tour.
