Our travel specialist made the entire process of traveling abroad for the first time painless. Not only was each activity we desired to complete included, but having all tickets and drivers lined up was invaluable. There was minimal thinking necessary on our part as our travel specialist did all the legwork for us. They were also easy to contact when an issue arose that was not because of them.Show More
This travel agency was great! We had such a great time on our trip and it was more than we ever imagined! We had never gone to Ireland and/or the UK before, and travelling can be even more daunting in the time of COVID-19. Stephanie and her colleagues made sure that we were still able to do everything we wanted to and get through the COVID-19 requirements as smoothly as possible. Thank you, Stephanie, for your help in our incredible, unforgettable adventure.Show More
Absolutely excellent experience with this travel team from the first contact! The travel designer asked questions about our likes and dislikes, goals in our vacation, and budget. The initial proposal required only a very few changes and the designer was receptive to those changes. Our trip to England and Ireland included excellent hotels, restaurants (and recommendations where appropriate), safe and dependable private tour guides, and transportation arrangements. Had only one glitch with the rental car reservation and our travel designer was promptly working on it when we returned.Show More
My wife and I were looking forward to this trip soo much, specially with all the COVID issues going on in the world, AND everything turned out just perfectly! Even with all the COVID restrictions, testing requirements and overall precautions in place with travel, it was an amazing trip that I wish we could relive. We really wished we could have stayed another month plus. Big thanks to our travel company & specifically Marie-Lys for helping us create and live out the perfect trip to France!! I highly recommend working with this team and hope that we can one day work with Marie-Lys once again!Show More
Elisabeth and George C.Trip through Scotland and England from October 17 to October 8th, 2019.We had a wonderful time and fell in love with Scotland. All the hotels we stayed at were unique, beautifully located and comfortable. The only exception might be the accommodations on the Isle of Skye which lacked the charm and standing to the other hotels. The only criticism I have is that directions to various places of interest were often too general without clear addresses or distances and expected driving time which we had requested beforehand. For example we did not immediately realize that Dumfries House is not in the town in Dumfries which cost us an hour of driving to the wrong destination. I would suggest in the future that distances and driving time are important when planing a trip.Your agents were all very helpful and easy to work with and we were very happy with the itinerary they designed. We would certainly consider using your services again.Best regards,Elisabeth C.Show More
Paula was marvelous. We started planning a trip before covid hit. Naturally, we had to cancel. Paula was wonderful and made the process seamless. When covid started to lift (and we needed to use our airline tickets) we contacted Paula again like an old friend.Paula was thorough, efficient, responsive, and flexible. She was always making herself available and easy to contact. There were absolutely no "glitches" in our trip. Every connection and reservation was prompt and we were greeted like family everywhere. Paula and the individuals that she recommended were extremely knowledgeable about everything Ireland can offer and they displayed a sixth sense about what we might enjoy, thereby guiding us along the perfect routes.In addition to the normal travel connections and accommodations, Paula made sure we received up-to-date information about covid testing and the means to get tested before our return to the USA.Show More
This tour company is wonderful! This was the first time my husband and I had used a travel agent in many years and now we can’t imagine planning a trip without them. We contacted the travel agent at this tour company after having already planned a portion of our trip on our own. We originally had planned on going only to Vienna & Salzburg, but then decided to expand our trip to Germany & France and knew we really needed help. We were directed to this company by Zicasso. As soon as we spoke with our agent, we knew she would be perfect. The travel agent was personally knowledgeable about all of the places we wanted to visit and planned such a wonderful trip for us, including private tours in every city we visited, starting with Vienna. Every guide we had was an expert and these private tours really enriched our experience of the places we were visiting. And it was such a luxury not having to worry about any connections! We received train tickets in the mail before our trip and we were picked up at every location for transfer to our hotel.We loved too that we received an initial proposal to review before everything was finalized. Our agent is very detail oriented and planned trip in such a way that everything was seamless. One of our connections involved a very early train, which we agreed was the one to take because it was the only direct train. The agent arranged for the hotel to have breakfast boxes ready for us on checkout. We actually were given so much food by the hotel that we wound up sharing it with the train staff, who were very appreciative!Our complete itinerary was accessible on an app, which was so helpful. Included were more information on the places we were visiting, restaurant suggestions, additional places to consider visiting, walking directions where needed, etc. And we could contact our agent & her team through the app. The whole team at this tour company is great to work with. A travel specialist works with our agent and was quick to respond to any question we had.We look forward to working on our next trip with this tour company!Show More
We are several weeks past the return from our trip, but we are not out of raves for the entire experience. We asked for a highly customized trip to visit the great old libraries of the world across several mid-European countries and were richly rewarded by the excellent transportation, drivers, and guides provided by the travel company. This was a fabulous and life-affirming experience.It would not have been possible without the careful planning and research done by our travel planner and his colleagues at this travel company. The hotels that were arranged were central and convenient in the cities in which we stayed and their personnel were friendly and incredibly helpful, adding to the enjoyment of our trip. Food recommendations, especially a food tour that was booked for us in Prague, were spectacular. Given our focal interest in centuries-old libraries and literature, the planner and his crew found top-notch experts in each location who deepened our understanding of the incredible edifices we toured and their histories.Then, especially in route from Prague to Vienna, we must exclaim about the beautiful alpine scenery and small towns. Noting that we were also very interested in nature, our driver-guide detoured to take us to mountain locations that were personal favorites of his. Spectacular!It’s simply difficult to say how much we enjoyed this trip in every detail.Show More

Travel Review: Luxury Ireland Trip, Dublin, Galway, Limerick, Killarney, Sheep Dog Demonstration, 8-Day Tour
We were extremely pleased with this Ireland travel company and the agent we worked with. This trip was two years in the planning due to multiple delays due to Covid and Julie worked with us every step of the way. The communication between us and her was always prompt and helped make sure we were able to do everything we wanted to do. The trip itself was wonderful. This was our first trip to Ireland and the specific itinerary, along with the suggestions made by Julie, we were able to get a flavor of both "Wild Ireland" and the City of Dublin during the eight days we were there.
The hotels booked by Julie were impeccable! The accommodations and service in Galway and Limerick were truly 5 stars and possibly beyond. The hotel in Killarney, has amazing service and is less updated, but still very comfortable and in a fabulous location in the town.
My wife and I strongly recommend Ireland to anyone who has never been and using this travel company for the booking of that trip.

Anniversary Trip to Ireland Review: History, Countryside, 10-Night Tour
This travel company was excellent in every detail of the trip to Ireland. From Hotels to recommendations their selections were perfect. Even during the trip, communications with Amy were maintained and she assisted us with additional needs, such as changing the rental car return location, so we didn't have to take the time to call and modify the rental. It was certainly the best trip my wife and I had ever taken to celebrate our 42-wedding anniversary and we added my son and his wife as a wedding gift after I started the initial plan with Amy. They had to include them into our travel after they scheduled the single rooms, etc., which was a major increase in work for Amy, but it was a seamless addition to the trip and overall the complete trip far exceeded our expectations.
