The team at 14You Travel made our tour to Croatia amazing!  There were 12 people in our group and everyone agreed that it was planned perfectly. As one of the people that worked with her to plan, I must say made it almost effortless.  Our agent had our itinerary organized full of fun without ever feeling hectic.  Everywhere in Croatia, we felt safe and welcomed!  Truffles in Motovun, cevapi in Split, traditional Peka near Hvar, fresh oysters right out of the shell on the water in Ston!  All delicious! The history and beauty of the Old Town and City Walls in Dubrovnik left us all in awe.  AND we visited multiple wineries all along the way as well.  With all these highlights, she arranged tour guides that were reliable, informed, fun and proud to share with us why they love their home.  Truly wonderful memories!!We all sincerely loved every minute of the trip and everyone hopes to visit with our own families in the future...but not without calling our agent first!

We had an excellent trip to Peru! The travel company was able to work with us to evaluate different options for our trip. Also during the planning phase, there were questions around political unrest in the country, but the travel company founder spoke with us and talked through options and contingency planning, which we found very helpful. Ultimately the in-country situation improved, and we traveled to Peru. The trip was an incredible adventure and one we would certainly recommend to others.

Luana at the travel agency was amazing!  She curated a fantastic itinerary for us all, with the hotels, private excursions and classes, train tickets, private drivers etc.  We couldn't have done this on our own, and even though Luana was in an entirely different time zone, she was accessible whenever we had a question, which was rare.  We felt so safe and secure knowing all the little details were taken care of for us.  All we had to do was enjoy the trip of a lifetime.  Which we certainly did!  Thanks Luana for helping make our travel dreams come true!

We were very fortunate to work with Irene and her team at the travel agency on our recent 23-day trip to Greece.  They worked with us to craft an extraordinary vacation.From the very beginning, Irene was extremely responsive. We told her about our list of must-see destinations and a number of interests beyond those specific places.  Irene put together an itinerary that reflected all of our wishes and made additional suggestions based on our discussion with her. She worked collaboratively with us to flesh out specific details. Once in Greece, all of our logistics were handled remarkably smoothly.  Irene and her colleague met us when we arrived at the Athens airport, and discussed with us all of the final details. Each transition from one location to another  -- we stayed in eleven hotels overall, flew within Greece and took a ferry -- was trouble-free.All of our drivers showed up on time, wore masks (as we requested) and drove safely on roads that could be difficult.  Some of them shared information about the areas and sites as we drove.  In particular, we had a wonderful driver, who was extremely knowledgeable and a delight to be with, for a seven-day drive from Athens through the Peloponnese and then north to Thessaloniki.We had private guides at archaeological sites, museums and cities. One of us is very knowledgeable about and interested in archaeology and history; the other is very interested in photography. Irene had informed the guides of our interests and concerns, and they accommodated our needs.Our hotels were, almost without exception, excellent.  Some weren’t as comfortable as others, but they were charming and were among the best available in those locations.Most of our meals (other than breakfast) were on our own, but several were included in our itinerary, and were among the best meals of our trip.We had never before had a private tour, with private drivers and guides, so we weren’t sure what to expect.  Irene and her team made us very comfortable with all of the arrangements, and provided us with an extremely memorable vacation.  We highly recommend this travel agency.

The travel agency did a really great job getting us around Kathmandu, Nepal and India. We were taken care from being picked up at the airport in Nepal and dropped right at security in Delhi.Jay was great to work with as we had a 44 day trip planned including a cruise. He worked out a great tour with the 9 days we allotted him. The agency was very attentive to our needs.We had our driver and new found friend on the India portion of the trip which included the Golden Triangle visiting Agra, Jaipur, and Delhi. He drove us from city to city and worked with each of the tour guides in every local. He made sure we were happy and had plenty of cold water and comforts. He was always there as we came out of any of the many stops and sites.All the tour guides were very knowledgable and we learned many new things as we explored these different cultures.Overall, everyone was great and did a fantastic job! Overall, the value of this trip is an exceptional value.

We had a wonderful time in Italy.  We visited Venice, Naples, Sorrento, and Rome for 10 day trip with me and my wife.  We were a little nervous being in another country, but we were glad that we were able to contact our travel agent 24/7 if we needed to.  We were picked up at the airport and train stations and taken to our our hotels.  Our personal drivers were on time every time. They made sure we were on the right train and where we needed to be.   Everything went very smoothly.  We did have 5 tours scheduled but the one in Venice was canceled but at no fault of the company.  The other 4 tours were great. One group tour to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius, one small group boat tour to Capri island and 2 private tours to Colosseum and Vatican in Rome.  Our tour guides were outstanding.  Very personable. Spoke good English and took great care that we had a great time and enjoyed ourselves.   We stayed in 3 different hotels on our trip and everyone of them was top notch.  Especially our hotel in Sorrento with the ocean views on the hillside was fantastic.

Foremost, the travel agency provided all services promised and contracted. They are an honest and transparent company and show concern for their customers.  Thank you Samuel and Paloma.I was very impressed with the tour guides provided. All were knowledgeable about the cities and museums I toured them with.  All are experts in the art, architecture and culture and history of Spain.  I learned so very much from them.  And all spoke excellent English, which was appreciated since, sadly, I do not have much knowledge of the Spanish language. Thank you to all our guides.All transfers from/to airports, hotels, and train stations were prompt and efficient.  I also very much liked the hotels selected.  They were clean, safe, provided good service, and excellently located.  All in all, this travel company provides an excellent service and provided excellent value.  This was my first journey to Spain and I am determined to return soon. Thank you.

What an amazing trip!  And it is all due to Rebecca and her team.  From our initial contact until we left Athens, Rebecca was available and ready to help. All we had to do was get on the plane and enjoy.  The hotels Rebecca choose were perfect, the transfers flawless and the tours and tour guides were exceptional.  Greece is a beautiful country, with wonderful people, food and wine and with Rebecca’s help we truly got to experience it all.    Thank you to the travel agency - we hope to work with you again!

 Mariana did a wonderful job of putting together a trip that was genuinely ours. On this trip we had food tours, cooking classes, hiking, biking, sailing, dinner on a yacht, boating on the Douro. Of course wine tastings, tours of Port producers, accommodations in a wine estate. Lots to coordinate, not to mention all the transportation arrangements...every driver over many tours and transfers not one was late, always helpful!  Each segment of the trip was different and unique, all went beyond what we expected and our expectations were high.

Spain Travel Review: San Sebastián, La Rioja, Barcelona, Cadaques, Basque Country, Catalonia, Food & Wine Tour, Culture

Our food and wine tour of Northern Spain was amazing. Everything was taken care of and we had an absolutely worry free adventure. The hotels were everything we hoped for and our guides were so wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable. In addition to great food and wine experiences, we learned so much about the Basque and Catalonia cultures.

Compared to trips we planned ourselves, this was so much better as our time was maximized and we saw the best sights with local inside knowledge. Compared with small group trips, it was better as our accommodations were truly first class and for about the same cost the trip was personalized just for us. Everyday was special.

Overall, we had a great adventure and left Spain with many great memories. 

Croatia & Montenegro Luxury Family Travel Review: Dubrovnik, Split, Zagreb, Zadar, History, Food Tours, 12-Day Trip


Tamara L.
Apr 15, 2023
I arranged a 12 day trip over Spring Break 2023 to Croatia and Montenegro for my 16 year old son and myself and everything from the planning process to the daily activities were a dream! Zicasso arranged for me to speak with three Croatian travel specialists and all were impressive, but I decided to go with Violeta with our travel agency as she listened to my requests for an emphasis on history and food tours that would appeal to both a teen and a 50 something woman, and her price point was right where I wanted to be for hotel, guides, car and driver, etc. Violeta was great about being available via text on WhatsApp if anything went awry with the trip while in Croatia (and Montenegro for a day trip.) We only had to text her once when I could not recall the correct tipping for the driver from the airport.My 16 year old son, who selected Croatia for our destination as he is a history buff, wrote the following review for those of you who are contemplating this trip for your children:  I had a great time in Croatia, from the old city of Dubrovnik with its Adriatic atmosphere, to Split which was founded by Romans and housed Diocletian’s palace, to Zagreb which had so many cool 19th century buildings that I felt like I would see in Vienna or Prague. As someone who loves learning about history, the trip encompassed so many incredible eras and we had a great food and tour guides to top it off. Our guides and drivers were always very knowledgeable and nice, answering questions and making Croatia come to life. Overall, I had an amazing time and would definitely recommend Zicasso and this travel company to others.

We had a fantastic trip to Italy arranged by Ilaria with the travel agency. We can't recommend them enough! After selecting this travel agency through Zicasso, we had a phone call with Ilaria to start the process. She suggested an itinerary that fit our interests and booked experiences we would have never found on our own. The hotels, the guides and drivers were all wonderful. Every detail was clear and the whole plan was packaged together in a beautiful itinerary. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE at the travel agency and Zicasso!

Our trip to Spain was amazing!  From the food and wine to the cultural experiences, everything was exactly what we were hoping.  The travel agency was so easy to work with and really understood from our first conversation what we wanted out of this vacation.  They planned everything seamlessly, which made it so easy for us to just enjoy the trip.  I would use both Zicasso and this agency again!  

Jordan & Israel Anniversary Luxury Travel Review: Jerusalem, Tiberias, Petra, Wadi Rum, Cooking Class, Camel Ride, Private Tours


Melony Y.
Apr 19, 2023
My husband and I decided to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary by a blow out trip to the Middle East -- something that has always been on our bucket list.  It was my task to search online; reading reviews, put out posts on Facebook for recommendations, etc.  Once I had a list of possible tour guides/companies I began to reach out.  We found Melanie with Zicasso and began discussing our plans and what we wanted to achieve.  For us, we wanted a customized trip that was private and flexible.  For our anniversary we didn't want to be on a big fat bus full of strangers dragging us all over Israel/Jordan.  Instead, Melanie found us private tours, private transfers, and customizable excursions and experiences that we specifically wanted -- PLUS recommended some things that we may be of interest to us.  Once we began finalizing the trip, we actually got an app that kept up with all our excursions and daily itinerary.  It also included documents that we needed to keep up with.  This app was very thorough and I appreciated access to it even offline.  There were things added to our trip (like private transfer from airport) that I wouldn't understand just how important until we needed them.  Melanie was a pleasure to work with and really had an awesome attitude and certainly exceeded our expectations.  We are already looking at next year's travel plans with Melanie/Zicasso.  I've used travel agencies in the past, but never had this level of detailed planning and service.  This trip made us feel VIP - from start to finish -- and you will be pleasantly surprised should you choose to use this travel service - and Melanie.

Portugal Luxury Group Trip Review: Lisbon, Algarve, Porto, Douro Valley, Food & Wine, 8-Day Tour


Jane S.
May 22, 2023
Our trip to Portugal in May 2023 was simply fabulous! We left the planning to Angela and Paloma knowing they would create the perfect itinerary for us. I must confess this is the second time my husband and I and our two friends have used the travel agency who planned our trips to Spain (2019) and Portugal.The attention and care they give to every detail is unmatched - and I have traveled extensively. For example, they know, among other aspects of our trip, we love wine and food so their selections of restaurants, markets, and wine and food tastings were amazing "gastro" experiences. The tour guides and drivers were all knowledgeable of the history and attractions throughout Portugal - providing interesting historical facts and trivia as we traveled from the Algarve region to Porto, and east to Duoro Valley.If you're looking for a company you can have confidence in knowing how to plan an itinerary to meet your desires and interests, then look no further.

Emily and her team at the travel agency were exceptional. We had several conversations to perfect the itinerary and they were very accommodating on ideas and needs. They booked great hotels and apartments, arranged tours and transportation. And during the trip they were always available for any emergent needs or questions. Our tour guides spoke highly of them and said it was easy to work with Emily. 

Luxury Argentina Travel Review: Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Bariloche, Food & Wine, Hiking, 12-Day Vacation


Donna F.
May 03, 2023
I cannot say enough positive remarks about our trip, using this travel agency...designed specifically by Ezequiel, who clearly listen to what we wanted and truly made it happen. From the moment we arrived in Buenos Aires airport, our driver arrived promptly, letting us know we were in great hands. We were met by a member of the team, at our hotel, where she not only went over our itinerary, but helped us locate a great place to eat and answer any specific questions. She remained extremely attentive during our entire time in Argentina to ensure we were satisfied, and all was going well. She checked on us when we arrived in each location, and promptly answered any questions we had despite the time of day.  When we arrived in Mendoza, our guide was there to greet us and again share our itinerary, answered questions, and provided some great suggestions for our leisure day. The hotels Ezequiel chose, were exactly what we wanted, as well as each of the wineries, food experiences and cooking classes we took. From Mendoza we went to Bariloche, where our guide met us and continued the great customer service, immediately making us feel comfortable in our new setting. Her knowledge of the area was unremarkable. We learned so much.We ended back in Buenos Aires for another couple of days, again experiencing food and wine that was outstanding and so much fun. Each guide we met and our Milonga instructor made this a trip of a lifetime. Our drivers were also very good.I will use Zicasso again, and have already shared what a great company it is to our friends and family.  If you go to Argentina, request Ezequiel to design your trip and make sure Pia is in charge of you when you arrive.
