Couldn't have asked for a better experience with a travel company or with a trip overall. Before the trip, my travel company listened carefully to what I wanted (both what I wanted to see and do and also what my general traveling style and priorities are) and customized a trip to meet all of it. I received a detailed final itinerary and all necessary documents ahead of time, including travel tips for Peru that made planning for weather, safety, staying healthy, tipping etc. very easy.
I was invited to call or email the travel company agent at any time during the trip, and any email I sent was responded to promptly. This was my first time using Zicasso, and it's so reassuring to have an in-country contact when going to a new place.
Once I arrived in Peru, every transfer went smoothly and every driver, transfer agent, and guide was a great combination of knowledgeable and care-taking. Extra special thanks to my guides in Lima and Cusco!
It's really impossible to choose just one favorite memory... I'm sure everyone comments on this, but seeing the citadel of Machu Picchu for the first time was truly breathtaking. There were bright red begonias growing out of the stone walls and llamas wandering around! Once the awesome guide learned I was interested in plants, she made sure to take me to certain spots within the monument where there were things blooming etc.
Touring the Sacred Valley with a guide who'd grown up there was also really special because he could answer all my cultural questions and add anecdotes about his own grandparents when discussing Andean language and traditions.
I loved the San Pedro market and chatting and laughing with a shopkeeper and her 4-year-old daughter in the main Plaza in Cusco.
Everything was memorable and I can't wait to go back and do more exploring in South America with this travel company's help!
Just spend even more time visiting even more places!
