Our family recently returned from a wondrous trip to South Africa that was planned with great assistance from Zicasso’s tour operator. South Africa really has it all – stunning scenery; tons of wildlife (lions and penguins!); friendly, creative people; beautiful art, music, and culture.

It isn't easy to please everyone when your kids range in age from kindergarten to tween and teen, but our travel agent came through! For example, my teen appreciated our time at the hotel, which opens into the mall at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town – he liked being able to have some independence to roam and explore.

I had a first-choice safari preference that was initially unavailable. Our agent kept checking back until space opened up for us. I also appreciated her patience with the many changes, tweaks, and requests I made to our itinerary along the way. We loved the tour and transfer service she partnered with in Cape Town. Even our transfers were informative mini-tours and we loved getting to know our guides. We really appreciated her suggestion to visit the Grootbos Nature Preserve and loved our gorgeous accommodation and our hike through an ancient milkwood forest.

Our travel agent was immediately responsive to my communications when I was on the ground and able to make some last-minute adjustments to our schedule right around Christmas, which went above and beyond. I felt comfortable and safe in her hands, and would highly recommend Zicasso's travel partner to anyone looking for a trip of a lifetime in stunning South Africa.

From the beginning, we were very impressed with our Zicasso travel agent's service. She planned a six-week trip to New Zealand and Australia, and in less than 10 days, it was finalized. She listened to our wants, limitations, and budget, and found some great accommodations, tours, and transportation.

Every flight and rental car reservation went smoothly, and many times were better than expected.

We only had a couple of issues and they were due to weather. She quickly went to work on refunds.

All our questions were answered very quickly.

I enjoyed the app.

We loved Panama. The hotels and restaurants were fabulous, and the people were gracious, even though most did not speak English. Google's translator was a necessity.

Overall, the tour company was not what I have come to expect from traveling with Zicasso. The communication going back and forth in planning the trip was difficult. At one point, they lost track of our payments and had to find the funds.

I was under the impression they were based in Panama, which they were not. We never got a call to see how we were doing. Some of the planned trips needed to be changed at the last minute because we didn't get the information on how difficult the trip would be (the trip to the volcano). What was then scheduled for us was not very interesting.

I will say our agent did try to accommodate us. He sent fruit to the hotel and tried to stay in touch by email.

We loved what he planned for us, like Monkey Island and the Embera village, and our hotel accommodations were lovely! Also, they planned a cooking experience with a charming chef … fun!

All our transportation was on time and the drivers very nice. Our guides were adequate, but communicating was often hard.

Our African safari was outstanding, even better than we imagined. The selection of locations and the camps were all excellent. Our travel within Africa was complicated, with nine different flights, and it all went off without a hitch. We were greeted at every stop and the local representatives took care of all the details at each departure and arrival. We highly recommend Zicasso’s travel partner company to anyone taking a trip to Africa.

We were very happy with Zicasso and the travel company. There were no hitches. All of the guides, drivers, and hotels were wonderful.

My husband came down with bronchitis in Egypt and the hotel immediately got him a doctor. The Egypt travel company continued to monitor his condition throughout the trip.

Overall, our trip was great. However, the communication we received from our Zicasso agent after we completed our booking was less than desirable. When the final payment was due, he gave us two days to get to the bank for the money order. A heads-up that the final payment was going to be due on this day would have been great so we could have changed our work schedule to accommodate getting to the bank before it closed.

When I asked him for a packing list, I received an email back from him stating they normally do not send that out until 10 days prior to your departure date. I need more time than that to order in what I would need for the trip.

Also, it would be helpful to know our domestic flight times and information prior to getting to the airport on the day of the flights. We received an itinerary, but nothing about flights your company made for us.

The guides and drivers he set up for us were fabulous.

What a fantastic trip! It was so well organized and planned, we were able to just relax and enjoy our vacation. It was a one-month journey to Africa, visiting Botswana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa. We always felt taken care of.

The safari portion of our trip could not have been more perfect. We were able to see the animals from very near on night drives and bush walks, with very few other jeeps to disturb the environment. The private concessions are an amazing way to truly experience the animals.

We also explored Cape Town on a number of fantastic private tours. We watched the southern right whales off the coast of Hermanus, tasted some delicious wines in the Winelands, explored charming small towns, tried local cuisine, hiked Table Mountain, and so much more.

Our travel team planned the trip to perfection.

Our Zicasso tour operator's suggestions and planning for my first trip to Belize were beyond amazing and outstanding, especially given the short amount of time given for planning and then our requested change of dates about a month before flying. Together, we put together a land package that included the Mayan ruins and cave tubing.

The private transportation driver who took us to the mountain was patient in waiting for our delayed flight and knowledgeable in pointing out areas of interest on the two-hour trip.

We stayed at a hotel which was quaint, clean, and beautiful. The staff were completely service-driven. Our driver/guide for the Mayan ruins and cave tubing was extremely polite and so knowledgeable. We loved him! Cave tubing is way too much fun and I am looking forward to going back to do it again. Our travel agent added an unexpected and welcomed tour through an iguana conservation project located at the hotel.

The small plane/flight to Ambergris Caye was easy and gave great views. The inn right on the beach was cute, quaint, and small. It was in a great location to get away from the business of San Pedro by walking along the beachside or getting into the hustle/bustle of the town by walking one block.

We took two snorkel excursions on which both crews were extremely knowledgeable, polite, and very nice. One had us going out on a sailboat, which was a pleasant surprise.

We were able to rent a golf cart directly through the hotel, whose staff were kind and provided exceptional customer service, to travel to Secret Beach.

One minor thing was being on the second floor of the hotel instead of the ground floor, but we completely understand that we were probably lucky to have even got a room there due to our late changes.

We are more than excited about planning a trip to go back next year!
