We came across Zicasso and this Spain travel company quite by accident, but certainly glad we did. Our agent and her staff assited us in planning a rather ambitious "Spain Sampler" taking us from Barcelona to Mallorca to San Sebastian, Madrid and eventually down South to Andalusia and specifically Cordoba, Sevilla and Grenada, all over a span of 3 weeks.
The range of this trip required many connections and arrangements, and they were coordinated flawlessly by our agent and her staff. Every private transfer by car went off without a hitch, flights and high speed train travel worked out perfectly-
Our trip also included many private guides and tours. These enanced our trip immensely and are highly recommended. Especially memorable were our tours to the Somontano Wine Region outside Barcelona and a small family owned winery and a tour of the Basque Coast that included a personal tour and tasting at a Txacoli Winery (yes, we love Spanish Wines!) We also had an extremely informative tour of the Madrid City Center and the Thyssen Museum. We were fortunate to see a special Edward Munch Exhibit.
Our group tour of the Alhambra in Granada was sensational. This place is truly one of the wonders of the world!
While is San Sebastian, our agent got us a reservation at the renowned Arzak Restaurant, and amazing and creative culinary adventure.
At each stop on our trip, our agent and her staff put us in 4-Star Hotels. These were generally centrally located and enabled us to effortlessly walk to important sites and restaurants. Hotels varied somewhat in terms of quality. We found that "Boutique Hotels" sometimes sacrificed comfort and basic amenities for trendiness, but overall location trumped whatever reservations we had about accommodations.
We should also mention that our agent and her staff provided excellent support on the run. In the course of 3 weeks, several concerns or questions came up. Our agent was responsive and addressed these concerns immediately, with the aim of making things as easy as poosible for us.
All in all, our trip was planned and executed with consummate professionalism and expertise. Every attempt was made to individualize and tailor the trip to our interests and preferences. It was a smashing success and we would not hesitate to avail ourselves of the services offered by Zicasso and this travel company again, with great enthusiasm.
