My fiancée and I were so very lucky to be connected with the travel company and the travel agent's expertise for our April 2022 Honeymoon to Chile. Having never traveled to South America and with a limited understanding of the Spanish language, we were already at a disadvantage when planning the trip. Our agent took all of our uncertainty away as he created a thoughtful and detailed 12-day itinerary traveling throughout the country of Chile - including the natural wonders of Patagonia, the Atacama desert, the Lake District, Valparaiso, and old Santiago. Our travel agent was very diligent in maintaining our budget and taking care to get the most out of our vacation funds. From booking all domestic flights to lodging in the best Hotels, to assisting with Chile’s Entry procedures (Mobility Pass, Covid testing, etc), to connecting us with knowledgeable, passionate English-speaking Tour Guides, the travel company met our every need and more. The vacation itinerary flowed flawlessly once in country, and the agent was never more than a text away if I had any questions or concerns. As business owners in the service industry, my wife and I were astounded at the travel company’s level of professionalism and commitment to their clients. We will definitely be looking to travel again with this travel company on our next adventures to Argentina and Peru!Show More
Our experience with Zicasso and this travel team in Argentina was perfect! From the very start of the planning stages to the actual trip from beginning to end was seamless! Our travel expert was always so responsive and really made our trip exactly what we had wanted. Her suggestions and the trips she planned for us were fantastic. She truly went above and beyond with her helpfulness (especially when my husband lost his cell phone and she helped us retrieve it, which was not an easy feat!). Our one minor difficulty (our fault) she responded and helped us immediately. Our hotels were great, the guides wonderful, and all travel was flawless.We would definitely recommend both Zicasso and this travel team!We will definitely use Zicasso on our next adventure!Show More
Our travels were absolutely epic! The travel planner from the travel company was amazing. He called to have a conversation from the get-go, to learn about our travel style and our likes/dislikes, and it confirmed that he had so much knowledgeable about the area.We had a lot of uncertainty due to covid, and our planner worked with us to modify our schedule. He was really consultative, and offered his honest opinions. We felt the amount of time spent in each location was ideal, all thanks to our travel planner. Our transfers were nearly flawless, we had peace of mind during our whole trip.Show More
Christian helped plan our dream honeymoon, and it was perfect from start to finish. The team knew the ins and outs of Chile, the best things to do, best tour companies, and best places to eat. They were extremely attentive and responsive during our 12 day trip. They live up to their name in choosing tour companies that abide by the principles “leave no trace” when in nature. I loved this aspect.Christian knew I was upset about the 6 hour quarantine period awaiting PCR results.. well he sent wine and snacks to our hotel room! This was a really kind gesture and shows just how wonderful his company is. I really felt they cared about our trip and that they love what they do.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
This tour company did an excellent job of understanding our needs and helping us every step of the way, from initial contact and throughout our trip. They chose excellent drivers and guides, and continually checked in with us to make sure things were running smoothly. When we missed a connection because of a delayed flight they advised suppliers and rescheduled drivers and guides. Special commendation to our agent who gave us months of personal attention and made it possible for us to get a taste of several regions during a short two week vacation and the travel specialist who met with us and acted as our hostess for the trip. I highly recommend both the trip planner and Zicasso for putting us in contact with them. Shirley S.Show More

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.

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!
