The entire trip went off without a hitch, from the planning stage to our last transfer to the airport. My wife and I have traveled extensively over the last several years and we know the value of having a first class travel company make the arrangements. This was our first experience with Zicasso and the guidance was excellent. We selected this travel company after speaking with and receiving proposals from two companies. Our Trip Advisor offered good advice at every point, reflecting his careful listening. We had been wanting to go to Greece for several years and had a pretty good idea of both what we wanted and what we didn't want. The trip turned out wonderfully for us and we felt that the choice of destinations, the sophistication level of the guides, and the comfort of the vehicles and hotels all met or exceeded our expectations.
Since this was our first trip to Greece, we felt that some things were mandatory, like visiting the Parthenon. But even this experience was made more enjoyable because we went early in the day to avoid the crowds and heat and we were furnished with interactive tablets that provided an excellent augmented reality, supplementing our guide's spoken words. Little things like that can make a big difference. Later, in Crete, we had a guide who walked us through her small hometown. We stopped at the grocery store where her sister was the proprietor and bought picnic supplies to take to the beach. As we walked the town's back streets, people would greet her and banter a bit. This helped us absorb meaningful impressions about the culture we were dropping in on. On Naxos, our trip advisor had encouraged us to rent a car and explore on our own, dispensing with guides and drivers. This turned out to be a wonderful part of the trip as we set our own pace and were able to simply enjoy the natural beauty of the island. A short swim off an incredibly beautiful beach in the clear blue-green Aegean waters, followed by a tasty lunch in the beach's single taverna has printed itself indelibly on my memory.
We have to accept the fact that life presents infinite choices and it is impossible to experience or know everything. This was a wonderful trip and I can't think of anything that would have made it better.
