This European travel agency is truly amazing. I was very much consumed by work in the past decade and this trip was the first long distance trip for the entire family since our kids were born and we also brought along my parents. I wanted this trip to be memorable for every family member and this company delivered it. Our agent at the travel company contacted me shortly after I registered with Zicasso. At first, the trip was just a vague idea. I myself wasn't quite sure about what exactly my needs are except that I want something that suits the entire family, from 70 years old to 2 years old. It was the over 60 emails with our agent and numerous phone calls that crystallised the plan. Our travel agency delivered the best services from hotel and driver to local tour guides and daily schedule. We will certainly go for this company again when we are in France and nearby countries. Thanks Zicasso for providing access to this company in Paris for me who's based in Hong Kong.
The entire trip is full of enjoyable and memorable moments. I will just highlight a few:
1. We arrived at Paris early in the morning, worried that hotel rooms won't be ready for check-in and we will have to spend the morning wondering around. The moment we walked into Le Bristol Paris, we felt the difference, it was by far the best hotel in terms of services I have every been to (btw, I travel a lot for work and am quite experienced with 5-star hotels). The hotel rooms were ready within 20 minutes and there were little surprised for our kids in both rooms
2. We were at Paris on Bastille Day. I feel so fortunate to have followed our agency's advice to stay at Paris on July 14 and watch the National Day fireworks. At first, I thought the fireworks there won't be that much different from those in Hong Kong and actually planned to travel to Southern France on that day. Our agent at our travel company convinced me to stay and arranged the dinner with a view for us. The firework is true art. Our young kids, despite the serious jet lag on the 3rd night of our trip, stayed awake the entire show and the whole family enjoyed both the dinner and the firework. We may even plan to be in Paris next year on Bastille Day.
3. The visit to Pont De Gau Ornithological Park at Arles, first time to see flamingo in such close distance and seeing them flying in lines is absolutely touching. Really appreciate our local guid William organised that trip for us.
I will probably cut down the number of cities to visit. Initially, I was even more ambitious trying to hit 7 cities during the trip. Our agent at our travel company suggested me to cut down to max 4-5 cities to make the trip more relaxing. Turns out hitting 5 cities in one trip is quite tiring for my kids and parents.
