Our Tanzania trip was excellent. Neil arranged our trip. He listened to all our interests about the safaris and answered all our questions with sincerity and patience. During our trip one location was added in order to see the migration.  We stayed in 5 camps in total and all the locations were excellent. The service, the people and the food all were very good.The sunsets, the sunrises and the animals we saw and heard at nights from the camps were amazing. We were prepared for the mosquitos but there were none. We were not sick for a single day. We saw elephants, lions, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, hyenas, hippos and gazelles so close to our van it was unimaginable. We saw the amazing birds and all other animals, too many to mention.Our guide was excellent. The instinct he has and the eyes to see the animals from far was very impressive. Because of him we could see a Cheetah kill and the migration and many more memorable moments.Seeing the animals in the vast landscape of Africa in their natural surroundings was amazing.  This was a trip of a lifetime.

I tell every person that I know to use Zicasso when planning a trip-- I couldn't have better things to say about working with Zicasso! It was intimidating to even know where to start with planning our honeymoon in South Africa and the Zicasso team set us up with Rachel from this travel company. They were absolutely incredible-- everything from helping us planning the itinerary to making dinner reservations to even helping us coordinate to potentially seeing a doctor when my husband was ill during our stay. They made traveling such a breeze for us and planned our perfect trip!

The trip:This was a trip of a lifetime, impeccably planned and executed to perfection. Almost 20 days in Australia and New Zealand. The itinerary was chosen to suit what we wanted, the tours (and tour guides) were interesting, fun and enjoyable, the hotels were nice, modern, clean, and well located. I can’t say enough good things.David was in charge of planning our trip. He understood what we wanted and proposed an itinerary that we accepted with some minor modifications. He was always available, before and during the trip, and he has support staff in both Australia and NZ available for us; we actually had some issues with the weather that forced some changes, and his staff was very effective in organizing the new itinerary. Would gladly use their services again and would recommend them unequivocally.

Rick did an amazing job planning our trip. We had numerous tours as well as multiple flights scheduled within the country and everything went so smoothly. We started planning this trip with Rick when Australia was still closed due to Covid. Rick was very communicative and kept us apprised of what was going on with the the reopening of the country. Also, we spoke with Rick about our budget for the trip, the length of our travel, our activity level, and the sights we wanted to see. After our conversation, Rick proposed a jam packed itinerary which not only stayed within our budget, but provided a ton of activities. After a short email exchange, we tweaked the itinerary very slightly. Approximately a month before our trip, Rick met with us via WebEx and spend roughly two hours going over all the details of the trip.  This was EXTREMELY helpful. I would highly recommend Rick for your future travel plans. We were very happy!!

The travel company arranged an amazing trip for us.  Every aspect of the trip, hotels, transfers, tours, and guides were seamless.  The company booked exactly the trip we asked for and guided us to a couple of excursions that exceeded our expectations.   For the days I added to the trip as days for us to just settle in on arrival, the agency even offered helpful suggestions on places to go and things to do.

Overall, we had a fantastic time! Rachel was very timely with her communication with us. The activities were great and we appreciated how helpful she was with alleviating many of her concerns. There was slight miscommunication/misunderstanding regarding one of our accommodations but both the hotel and Rachel were very quick to handle the issues (without charging us).

We used Dick and Journey Earth for our 26 day trip to AU and NZ. Both those destinations were fantastic and remarkably we did not have a single scheduling problem on the trip thanks to the excellent work of Dick and the staff at our travel agency.Dick did a great job recommending things to do and responding to our requests. He texted me several times during the trip to make sure we were enjoying everything.

Wow! Our travel agency promises an "Adventure of a Lifetime", and you will get it! Alex and his crew planned an 8 night Costa Rican trip for our wedding anniversary, and we were able to see three different parts of Costa Rica, staying in the most beautiful hotels. They are timely, helpful, responsive, and very knowledgeable. From arrival to departure, we were well cared for.

Our first time in Costa Rica was a wonderful adventure thanks to Sonia of our travel agency. She created an itinerary that gave my family the perfect introduction to Costa Rica's wildlife and rich Pura Vida culture. I was looking for budget-friendly vacation options as we only had a week for a trip, and this was my family's first international trip after the pandemic.

Sonia offered us many activities for a great price. The hotels had great views, the drivers were incredibly helpful, and the tour guides were excellent! Communication with Sonia was prompt via WhatsApp and regular text once we were in the country. Sonia was also very accommodating with the hotel bookings; everyone was comfortable and had no complaints (which is a big deal as all except for one of us are 6 ft + tall). I appreciated the friendliness and hospitality shown during all the services. If you are looking to book a trip to Costa Rica, look no further because Sonia will take care of you. Pura Vida!

We were totally pleased with the trip set up for us by the travel company.  As we arrived in Quito Ecuador at midnight, there was a representative from the company at the end of the jetway to take us through immigration and customs and to get us on the shuttle to the nearby hotel.The hotel at the airport was clean and modern, with a wonderful buffet selection for breakfast (included in our room rate).Back at the airport, the representative from the lodge met us as we walked into the terminal and had our tickets and boarding information for our flight to Coca.  There we were met by our naturalist guide, taken to their local office to refresh, and then the 90 minute ride down the Rio Napo to the lodge.The lodge was first class.  Wonderful rooms, food, excursions, etc.  It far exceeded our expectations for living in the jungle for 4 days.  Our Naturalist Guide and the local expert were a great team and made sure we saw most of what the jungle had to offer.Back in Quito, we spent the night at the hotel - an old hacienda renovated and brought up to modern specs.  The two llamas roaming the grounds were quite the greeting party.Again, we were met at the airport by the representative of the local tour agency with our tickets and documentation for going to the Galapagos Islands.  The 5 days on the ship were incredible.  A wonderful, professional crew, first class accommodations, and really good food.  The excursions were varied and gave us a nice introduction to the Islands.  Our Naturalist was so knowledgeable and she knew were to take us to see the best wildlife.  The giant tortoises were saved for our last outing, and they did not disappoint.Once again, Zicasso and your partners have provided me with a memorable experience that fulfilled a lifetime dream.Paul P.

Luxury Costa Rica Solo Trip Review: Wildlife, Waterfalls, Volcano, Beaches, Rainforest

I recently used this travel agency to help plan my first ever international solo trip to Costa Rica! They were quick to respond to my Zicasso request (within 24 hours) and promptly set up a call to discuss all my travel needs. I was quickly impressed with the materials and excursion options they provided. Alex and his brother Francisco took care of everything (from hotel bookings, excursions, transportation) and I was both taken away with their personal communication style and attendance to my needs before and during my trip. I even encountered a few deviations from my prescribed itinerary (needing to be picked up from the airport a day earlier, moving my schedule around) and the travel agency team was extremely accommodating.

This travel agency helped my husband and I have a great trip in Costa Rica! We hadn't used a travel agency before but decided to try one for our honeymoon, and we are so glad we did. We were able to do all of the activities we wanted (horseback riding, hiking, wildlife viewing, zip lining, kayaking, snorkeling) without worrying about any of the details during the trip, and the cost was very reasonable. Most of the drivers and guides were friendly and happy to teach us about the places we visited. Overall, we highly recommend our travel agency!
