UNBELIEVABLE SERVICE! Our travel agent was open and available to help me plan my honeymoon from day one, and always listened and provided expert advice. She gave me all the time I could have asked for and more, and provided multiple iterations of our itinerary as we talked through different options and opportunities. She coordinatated many special little surprises during our trip that truly made us feel special, and all of her suggestions and recommendations proved to be exemplary. She reached out to us several times during our trip to ensure everything was going as planned, and worked with our hotels and resorts to ensure we had al the documentation we needed for the next leg of our trip. She was a delight to work with, and not only would I use her company again in the future, I will be suggesting them to anyone and everyone I know looking to travel in the region.Show More
The travel company exceeded all of our expectations as the travel agency for our family trip to Greece. From the beginning, their communication was excellent - always prompt and proactive. They were available 24/7 and could not have been more attentive to the details. They put together an amazing itinerary, one that allowed us to see various parts of Greece over a 9 day period, but without feeling rushed or tired. From the hotels to the restaurants to the activities planned, it was a perfect mix of variety combined with amazing service. The tour guides they used for various activities were top notch - extremely knowledgeable, personable, and flexible. We learned so much about the country in a very short amount of time.Show More
We use Zicasso for almost all of our travel adventures and we must say this Greece travel agency provided one of the best travel experiences we have had. From start to finish, the service was superb. Irene and her team listened intently during the planning process and crafted a custom trip that exceeded our expectations in every respect. The itinerary was well paced, the guides were extremely knowledgeable (many with university degrees in archeology), the drivers courteous, helpful and punctual, the accommodations superb, and the restaurant recommendations delicious. Irene actively stayed in touch with us throughout the trip via a local mobile phone she provided that was pre-programmed with every phone number needed for our entire 30 day trip: her office, the guides, the drivers, the hotels, and many restaurants.When Olympic Airlines did not deliver our luggage on a return flight from Naxos to Athens we called Irene on the phone she had given us, explained the situation and then handed to phone to the Olympic baggage desk representative. Irene spoke to her in Greek and then took over the entire expediting process of getting the luggage delivered quickly to our next stop in Napflion so we could focus on our trip and not on trying to get our luggage. It was truly remarkable service.We will return to Greece in the future and we will definitely use this travel agency again.Show More
Our vacation to Italy, Turkey and Greece was amazing, the travel designer at this travel agency did a great job of planning our itinerary with having very little time to work with due to our last minute decision to travel because of covid 19, we managed to see all of the major sites and still had enough free time to enjoy some leisure time on our own. I would recommend this travel agency and Zicasso to anyone who would like to enjoy a worry free vacation.Show More
My husband and I spent 19 days in Greece and did not have to think about any logistical issues. Our ride was waiting for us at the airports, at the hotels, at the ferry, at the end of tours, and any time that we moved from one place to another. Every tour was spot on and exactly what we had requested. We were particularly interested in the history and culture of Greece but also wanted other experiences (like wine tasting, cruising the waters around Santorini, visiting Mykonos, etc). Everything planned for us was perfect! Our travel agent even changed our day on the water when we were in Santorini so that we would have better weather. The day was flipped with the day we visited Akrotiri, and we had an idyllic day on the water on a semi-private catamaran cruise with champagne, wine, and beer and the most incredible lobster dinner. The operations manager texted us often to verify times of pick-up, any slight change in the schedule, and to ensure things were running smoothly. We had great rooms, the food was fabulous, every tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly, every driver was on time and personable, and every tour was what we had hoped for. We even had dinner with the co-founder and the operations manager on our last night. I could go on and on but suffice it to say that it was a perfect trip.October was a great time to visit Greece. It wasn't too crowded but everything was still open and the weather was neither hot nor cold.Show More
Our travel designer from this tour agency has made our Egypt & Jordan dream come true in the best possible way. He has provided an outstanding, personal yet professional experience. He took time to understand what our family (Mom, Dad, 21 and 11 year-old girls) like and don't like while designing the itinerary and made awesome suggestions/additions. In the end, we had a PERFECT visit resulted from airport pickup, seamless transportations, lovely accommodations, authentic restaurants, wonderful and knowledgeable local guides to on time COVID testing between Egypt and Jordan and from Jordan back to the States. Traveling in this new pandemic era, the designer made everything flawlessly connected, which is extremely important and reassuring. The whole family absolutely enjoyed every moment of the trip and fell in love with Egypt, this enchanted ancient country. Special thanks to our Luxor local guide who is an excellent Egyptologist. His genuine love of Luxor is so contagious, which made the city one of our favorites (and we have traveled around the world). His knowledge and more importantly his passion in telling us the history of thousands years ago made us fall in love with Egypt. We are still watching all the Egypt documentaries that we can find to this date, a month after the trip. Our guide is also very personal and considerate, which made the trip a very relaxing experience. We are already thinking to work with the tour agency again to fulfil our next dream!Show More
We had a very enjoyable trip to Greece - Crete, Santorini, Naxos and Athens! The places that we visited were diverse and very interesting - 1) Crete: hiking the Imbros gorge, visits to special restaurants (slow-cooking, small village) and Knossos Minoan site; 2) Santorini: Catamaran cruise and tour around the picturesque island; 3) villages in the diverse and beautiful Naxos - ceramic pottery studio, village in the mountain, lovely beaches, kouri statues for the classical era; and 4) Athens - the unique Acropolis and other archaeological sites (Ancient Agora, Temple of Zeus....), Delphi and walking around the Plaka and other areas. Our guides were knowledgeable and very nice. Our travel planner worked with us to put together a special trip with great suggestions. We had interesting tours and great food in the restaurants on our tour. There was a misunderstanding in what our highest priority was - that is the Acropolis and other archaeological sites (which should have been given more time and focus, since we were on a private tour). There was also some minor misunderstandings between our travel agency and the contract guides as to the contents of specific tour.Show More
We LOVED our trip to Greece for our honeymoon and we're so happy we found Zicasso to help with all of our planning needs. The trip was booked about 4 months before our wedding, so it was important for us to have all of our plans handled while we were in the midst of finalizing plans for our big day.Through Zicasso we were connected to our rep, Georgina, who quickly responded and provided a great itinerary including airport and hotel transfers, hotel recommendations, tours and day trips in each location, and inner connect flight travel. We made some slight tweaks but overall kept most of what was originally recommended. We wouldn't have changed our time in any of the cities we stayed in and felt taken care of from the second we stepped off the plane. All of our transfers and tour guides were timely and we had no issues throughout our trips. One of our rooms even got upgraded which was a great treat and surprise. Overall I would recommend this travel company to anyone!Show More

Honeymoon Trip to Greece Review: Athens, Milos, Santorini, Parthenon, Acropolis, Wine Tour, Boat Cruise, 10-Day Tour
My husband and I got very lucky and were married right before COVID hit. However, we weren't able to go on our honeymoon. We waited almost two years before we could enjoy some newlyweds time and since we couldn't go anywhere, we decided to splurge and use our savings for Greece. My husband and I don't travel often, which makes it very hard for us to look for where, when, and how, so we decided we should find an expert who can help us have a memorable trip.
We found Zicasso by searching on google and after reading some great reviews for this company we decided to contact them and really it was hands down the best decision. They set us up with an expert who can create an itinerary for us in our budget and preferences. We were matched with Thodoris. He was basically on top of everything from the beginning. He checked with us where in Greece we would like to go and also suggested a few things too which we appreciated. We trusted him from the beginning as he seemed very genuine and experienced. We finalized our trip and visited Athens, Milos, and of course Santorini.
My husband and I work a lot, and that's why we did not have the time to book each little thing for this trip. However, doing it through this company made it super easy for us. Our flights, hotels, transportation, tours, and tour guides all were included in our package and that was so much appreciated as it is not always easy to find a ride in Greece. We even got to meet with our travel advisor the day we got there and we were welcomed with a gift bag, coffee, and lunch.
Thodoris made sure we got the best views as we specifically asked for that for our trip and was always on top of everything. Very communicative even though we are 10 hours behind Greece's time zone. Such a great trip advisor and human being. Would totally recommend Zicasso and will use them for our future travels. And if you get Thodoris, I promise you your trip will become even better. Thank you, Thodoris, our special tour guides, and other members of the Zicasso Team.
Greece Trip Review: Corinth, Acropolis, Santorini, Meteora 7-Night Trip
Our trip to Greece was outstanding! I have used Zicasso to help identify travel agencies for other international travel in the past and I have always been very pleased. I have traveled fairly extensively, however, Eirini, our travel specialist, was absolutely the best - EVER! She coordinated a vacation that was perfectly tailored to what we wanted, and then personally followed up on the details including recommendations and reservations for dinner. Every driver and guide was excellent and professional and Eirini was available to us, as needed. Even though travel is more complicated now due to the pandemic, Eirini made it easy and even coordinated having our required Covid testing completed at our hotel. Again, outstanding in every way. Thank you for connecting us with our travel specialist. I will definitely highly recommend them and Zicasso, in the future.
Greece Travel Review: Luxury 8-Night Tour of Mykonos, Crete, Athens, Santorini
We booked a 9 day trip to Greece through our travel company. From the start of the process, their company made it seamless to obtain the itinerary we were looking for, coordinated all of our airport transfers and inter-island transportation, as well as our activities. We had an amazing experience and would recommend this company 100% for anyone looking to travel to Greece.
Athens - we stayed at a lovely hotel downtown with an amazing rooftop restaurant with views of Acropolis. The food, staff, and stay were wonderful. We did a walking tour of Acropolis and its museum, and our tour guide was wonderful and exceptionally knowledgeable.
Mykonos - we stayed at a beautiful resort! The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating.
I would WARN ANYONE going to Mykonos to avoid the restaurant DK Oyster, and we wish we had read reviews before stumbling on this restaurant while walking on the beach. The owner and staff are crooks and readily engage in fraud and theft of their customers. There is one price on the menu, but then when you go to pay they type in exorbitant prices and intimidate you when you question where these values have come from. They will not give you a copy of your receipt. This establishment has been reported numerous times to the ministry of tourism and has awful reviews on all sites, and honestly should be told about to anyone traveling to the island of Mykonos. What they are doing at this restaurant is not representative of the Greek people and their hospitality.

My (now) wife and I initially considered trying to map out our honeymoon trip across Greece on our own, but ultimately decided to give Zicasso and the travel agency a chance – and this was the best decision we ever made!
We submitted some initial information on the website, not knowing really much of anything other than that we wanted a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and promptly were set up with two experienced travel agencies from Greece. Within days, both of the agencies contacted us –the system is set up this way so that you can talk to both and choose which one you like the best. We went with a cordial gentleman of this travel agency who was good at speaking English and very open to meeting our specific requests. He’s a very experienced travel expert in Greece and has been coming up with travel plans for decades. Based on the initial information we submitted, he drew up an initial general outline itinerary for us. He then gave us a call, and we spent time making adjustments so that it could fit our wants. Our travel specialist is very flexible – and you never have to feel like you’re locked in. We went back and forth several times, changing our minds every so often, adjusting things here and there (activities, accommodations, you name it) before we came to a finalized itinerary that we were happy about.
It seems like the departments in Zicasso are interconnected, so we were also set up with people who were able to set us up with the appropriate flights at the timeframes of our request. We asked him questions related to tipping culture and the use of cash vs. credit card in Greece, and he answered all of those questions for us. He also informed us about necessary documents needed before traveling to Greece and also had us fill out various forms and submit them beforehand so that we wouldn’t have to be scrambling before our activities in Greece.
The biggest thing, however, is when you land in Greece. That’s when the travel agencies really shine, and that’s when everything becomes worth it. At every landing point there was a driver waiting for us, ready to connect us to the next location, and who was knowledgeable about the area. Representatives met us at every location (we went to various islands, and there appeared to be different local expert travel specialists per island – but overseeing everything was our travel specialist), filling us in on important information such as suggestions on what to do and where to go and at what time – and they told us about the local area, in case we wanted to do things on our own. We are just regular people, but everything was set up so that we felt like royalty. Everything was truly catered to make our trip as seamless as possible. After all of the busy wedding planning, it was so nice to just go and relax and have everything taken care of. It’s still surreal thinking about it.
When we arrived at our first hotel, we received a folder that had all of the information for our trip and the various tickets we would need for our time in Greece. Our travel specialist checked in on us throughout our time in Greece and was always available to answer any questions. When a yacht activity got canceled due to poor weather, he somehow immediately knew about it and within hours had it rescheduled for a different day that was available in our itinerary (which he already knew). He set us up with the required COVID testing before we returned to our home country, giving us options to go offsite or (because it was available at our location) have the doctor actually come to our hotel (though more costly, we opted to have the doctor meet us at the hotel and it’s worth it to avoid the stress/wait times). I don’t know how he did it, but he also somehow got us upgraded accommodations, better than what we had originally requested, making our stays even more awesome.
We had a wonderful time. It was more than just a honeymoon vacation – it was also a very cool learning experience where we learned so much about the country’s history from the various tour guides.
