From start to finish this trip was everything we could have hoped for. I told Jeff a bit about our interests in Scotland and he put together a trip that hit all the marks. Great itinerary, hotels, sights and distilleries! Jeff and Linda took care of all the details from the moment we landed in Edinburgh until we said a sad goodbye to Scotland in Glasgow.Our guide was incredible! Knowledgeable, funny, tireless and a wonderful storyteller - she made the trip perfect for us.

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.

Trip of a lifetime thanks to the travel company.  The travel planner was wonderful to work with and fulfilled my wish list with everything my 13 year old grandson would love to see and do in Ireland. Every guide/driver was like being with a friend who happened to know all the best spots. Our driver even pulled over so we could witness a baby lamb being born. I guess I can’t give them credit for the rainbow that completed out trip, but we sure are grateful for everything else. Kathy

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.

Our travel company was amazing. They planned a perfect trip for us. They took our thoughts and feedback and found activities and hotels that matched us exactly. They ensured everything was planned and coordinated to make us not have to think at all. We used all of their suggestions for restaurants and bars and loved it all. We were most impressed with the tour guides they used, they were amazing.

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!

Our travel agency stepped in at the last minute and saved a trip. Given the timing, they did an excellent job. Our guide/driver in Scotland was kind and prompt, and he found some opportunities for special events. He was not from Scotland and so was a little less knowledgeable than the guides we have had on other Zicasso trips. The hotel in Braemar, not the fault of our travel agency, was one of our unfavorite hotels from all of our trips, and was one of the most expensive hotels we've ever chosen.

We just returned from a three week tour of Scotland and cannot speak highly enough of Jeff and his travel agency. The trip was planned perfectly with a wonderful itinerary which included all the best parts of Scotland. It was everything we asked for and more! We had our own private guide and vehicle which she drove so we had no worries about driving on opposite side of road that we are used to here in the US. The pace of the trip was leisurely with plenty of time for any extras we wanted to do or just for some rest periods or leisurely lunches. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Scotland and gave us the history of each place we visited. She was so fun to be with and a great story teller too!We are so happy we chose this travel agency. Jeff did such a good job in putting together the itinerary. All the details were taken care of and all we had to do was enjoy it. Lots of great pictures and memories!

Our trip to England and Scotland was amazing.  Zicasso connected us to a travel planner at this travel company.  He set up an initial phone call to discuss what we wanted to do, then he made suggestions on where to visit and stay.  He suggested private tours for everything, so that we had flexibility to manage our days while we were there.  The hotels were all very nice, comfortable, clean and included breakfast.  Our tour guides were very knowledgeable, fun and attentive to our needs.  They both had comfortable vans (with WIFI, charging cables and water), and they always knew of a location nearby for a restroom or a snack. The tour guides showed us all the main attractions, but also took us off the beaten path to show us things we would never have found on our own.  The entire trip went smoothly, every pick up, transfer, hotel check in...it was all taken care of and easy.  That was invaluable for me, as I could enjoy the trip and not worry about the logistics.  We will certainly use the travel company and Zicasso to book future trips.  Our entire experience from end to end was outstanding.

Our 21 day trip to Scotland was one of the most exceptional international journeys that my wife and I have had. We saw as much of Scotland as possible for the time we spent in that beautiful country.

The planning for our 2021 trip began in 2019 with a reach out to Zicasso, who we used on a previous trip a few years back with great results. At first, we only received interest from one tour company, stateside, to help us plan our trip. However, I went back out to Zicasso to try and get an agent in Scotland, and Jeff called me from Edinburgh and the planning began in August of 2019.

My wife was intent on me not driving while in Scotland, so, that meant that we would need a driver for most of the time. I'm glad we did, as it would not have been safe for me to drive on the roads we were on. I found driving in New Zealand to be a challenge, but I'm convinced that driving in Scotland would have been worse, at least 3X with all of the narrow one-way roads with no shoulders, limited turnouts, rock walls and hedges. 

The initial timing for our trip was supposed to go off in April 2020. However, due to Covid lock-downs, we had to postpone our trip twice. First to April 2021 and then to September 2021. So, Jeff essentially had to book, cancel, rebook all of our lodgings, ferries, trains and other excursions three times! We indeed got to know each other, albeit long distance, in the 2 years that he and I had in planning.

It's not as easy for anyone to do foreign travel these days as it once was with all of the different Covid protocols depending on where you start and where you are going. For our September 2021 trip to Scotland, we had to show we had the Covid vaccinations, a Covid test 72 hours prior to our flight, complete a locator form for the UK that covered our complete trip, and then another test in Edinburgh on day 2. While we were in Scotland, we were on a barge in the Caledonian Canal for a week, and we had to do a quick test mid-way through that excursion.  Then, before returning home, we had to do another Covid test within 72 hours of departing which meant that Jeff had to tweak our itinerary that allowed a day to go to a pharmacy in Aberdeen to take the tests. Had just one of our tests come back positive for Covid which does happen, and I'm not sure what we would have done. But, luck was on our side and it all went well, and really there wasn't much stress regarding test results, because we did have Jeff there to help us in the case we were positive.

Jeff and Linda did a great job with all of the logistics, and once we finally arrived in Scotland, our trip was stress free! I didn't have to pour through maps and travel brochures, or make phone calls to B&Bs or anything. Jeff did all of that, plus the driving and tour guiding! It was about as turn-key of a trip as I've had. Jeff also made most of our lunch and dinner reservations for us, picking restaurants that were very exceptional!

Jeff is a very seasoned tour guide who has worked all through Europe, but he is an expert on all things Scotland. Growing up in Edinburgh, he knows the history and significance of places of interest, etc., and he is very proud of his beautiful country which we really enjoyed!

The travel planner was wonderful! He worked with us to plan a trip that was exactly what we wanted. We never felt rushed or overwhelmed at any location which was nice. All of the accommodations and restaurant recs were top notch. Also, we thought I sprained my ankle the second day of the trip. Thankfully I didn’t but our planner was already working on a plan B to ensure we had the best experience possible. I would highly recommend the travel planner to anyone I know!

The travel company planned a complex 23-day tour of England, Wales, and Scotland in two parts. For the first part, my wife and I were the sole travelers and then were joined by another couple for the second part. Traveling in the very early spring, we expected rain, wind, and cold. We were greeted by the sun on almost all the days with wonderful photographers’ clouds.The complex trip with ten base locations and many events beyond was planned and executed flawlessly. In developing the plan the travel designers were very available and responsive as the dialog for planning the trip progressed.We had been to London, Bath, and the Cotswolds before, but the trip explored many more regions including some of the most scenic national parks. There were smiles on our faces for all 23 days and we haven’t stopped smiling since.

By every measure the trip was superb. The travel company is an outstanding travel agent.  The trip was 23 days long, very complex, exquisitely planned to meet our goals, and executed flawlessly.  In particular, we wanted to visit disparate places in England and Scotland that we had not previously seen.  This involved staying at eight hotels, having three knowledgeable and enjoyable guides for multiple days as well as several drivers to ferry us to and from various locations since we chose not to drive ourselves.In broad terms, we visited Cornwall, the Cotswolds, Oxford, Stratford upon Avon, Bletchley Park, the Peak District, York and Edinburgh.  The specific list of places, sites, institutions and activities was comprehensive, adhering to a daily schedule while allowing us quite adequate time to explore on our own.  The travel company selected numerous places to visit of which we had been unaware but were very pleased to see.The company was impressively attendant to the details of our trip including tickets to all locations, specific instructions for train travel, sorting out our clothes cleaning needs, and even finding a solution to our need for Covid testing while on a very tight schedule.I heartily recommend the travel company.
