Amazing trip of a lifetime! The trip was perfection from start to finish. We could not have asked for more. Every step was well planned and executed. We never had to worry about a thing except having the most amazing, romantic adventure. I would highly recommend the travel team of our travel agency to everyone. They made everything so relaxing and easy and carefree. Their customer service from the very first contact concerning questions about Italy through booking and the entire vacation was beyond exceptional. WONDERFUL PEOPLE! WONDERFUL TEAM!!Show More
Exceptional trip for a second time. The travel planners were extremely responsive in providing suggestions of things to see and do in the areas we were planning to visit in March 2022. We had a prior excellent experience in December 2019. They provided timely and courteous responses to changes we needed to coordinate during the planning process and made themselves available for any questions we had during the trip. Our family trip consisted of four people including 2 adult children. The accommodations were great and in areas near the activities we wanted to do. Transportation arrangements were excellent and timely. Our family had a great experience and would highly recommend the travel company.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
They did a fantastic job helping us plan our trip. The modes of transportation and guides selected were perfect. They listened to us and we got exactly what we wanted!Show More
1. The trip was well planned and everyone; hotels, guides and transfers knew who we were and where we were going.2. The guides were very good. Knowledgeable and friendly. They were willing to change or emphasize their talk to our questions.3. The help line was extremely reassuring. Just knowing there was someone we could contact if there was a problem.4. The guides let us know that the office was calling and making sure we were where we should be. This made us feel like we were not alone.5. Pre-trip was made easy by Nicole who answered any questions we had. She was very easy to talk to.6. This trip was special for us and we had looked forward to it for a long time. The staff made it special.Show More
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
Overall, it was an amazing trip! The pandemic made things difficult/frustrating and had some issues with communication and the transfer to 2 other agents from the original. Was a little disappointed in an excursion to Cortona that we added on. It was very expensive and we were supposed to have a driver that was knowledgeable and gave us a guided tour on the way and back. He didn’t understand a lot of English. Was very nice and joked but basically paid an exorbitant amount of money for someone to drive us there and back. Also was disappointed that we never were able to get the same driver twice as requested but I don’t think the travel agency had a choice which is unfortunate. Everything else was beyond expectations. Our accommodations in Tuscany were like a fairy tale! Wish we had an option to stay the last night as well since our hotel in Florence wasn’t very nice and after 3 days in Florence on the front end, we were pretty much done with the city. The drivers all arrived when they were supposed to and all of them were very kind. Two of them in particular were incredible! And very informative which is what we felt like we were paying for and using the service for. I think in the future, I need to be more specific of what we’re wanting and check out the hotels we’re staying at and what they offer in advance.All in all, had a fabulous time and would definitely use Zicasso again. We adore Italy and are very happy!Show More
Our travel agency was excellent to work with. They were always timely with their responses and great to work with on the planning and offered many options. They respected my budget from the start. All bookings were made as outlined in the quote. The hotels, tour guides and drivers they work with were all top notch! All tour guides and drivers were friendly, knowledgeable and on time. We had a last minute request while on vacation and our travel agency was very helpful and responsive, really above and beyond, I was again grateful that we had chosen them to coordinate all of our travel plans.Show More

This agent organized one of our top 5 vacations of all time! Impeccable attention to detail. Excellent communication and extremely responsive before and during the trip. I have a rule of never using American agents to plan a foreign trip but I’m very glad I made the exception here because the agent’s ties to the country as well as employees on the ground in Italy mean that they have an intimate knowledge of the best that Italy has to offer. They created bespoke tours based on our interests and these would not have been possible if they were not themselves immersed in their destination. Once you choose this agent though, do listen to their advice trust that they know what they’re doing.

Our agent with the travel company is a dream come true. I’ve been hesitant to use a travel agent after our family travel agent retired. I've never found anyone like her and at her caliber. However, we’ve discovered the travel agent! This is our first time using this agent and her first time getting to know us. Overall, she did a fantastic job learning about us through a pandemic and executing our postponed honeymoon with finesse. I'm picky about travel agents, and finally, I've found someone I adore as much as my retired travel agent. Our agent was always available when we got there and always had a suggestion when we asked. We cannot recommend enough the agent and travel company. You will not be disappointed!
The drivers were top-notch. The other quick drivers were great, but we spent so much time with the above, and they were the perfect personalities for our journeys together. From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by our three mentioned drivers and the level of detail they each provided. We tipped them more than usual because they worked hard, and we have seen so much lack of care from
People everywhere with work; it was genuinely refreshing to see them go above and beyond. We know it’s hard right now for everyone. It’s sometimes just enough to make it through the day. That is why we wanted to show our appreciation. And, *hint, we want them again if we are in those areas.
Not only were the drivers great, but we also loved our accommodations! The agent provided choices, and we made selections based on her input, and sure enough, we were so pleased in totality. We stayed in 4 exceptional accommodations across several cities and towns. Our favorite was the Rome hotel, followed closely by our Tuscany hotel, with our Positano final hotel closing out the top 3 out of 4 favorites.
From the tours to the transportation, everything she arranged was great for just getting to know us. The quality was excellent as well. With her now knowing a bit more, We are excited about what details she will recommend for next time.
