This was the most amazing and fulfilling holiday we have taken. It was extremely well organized with educated and personable guides. The selection of hotels was excellent placing us where we found interesting places to go to on our own during free time and restaurants that were excellent. We highly recommend Zicasso for their ability to arrange a holiday that can fulfilled one's ultimate private tour.
How welcoming it was to be met at our arrival by a driver and a guide who escorted us to our hotel and saw that we were settled in with a detailed itinerary of the days to follow.
With drivers who made us feel secure no matter the traffic or the distance we could concentrate on hearing our guide. The information given to us by our guides, who all were highly educated in either art or history or both, prior to our destinations made the points of interest be it a town or museum more comprehensive.
Of course the private Gaudi tour was amazing but the details given to us and the opportunity to ask questions on a one to one bases made it so rewarding. I will never forget watching the light come in through the windows of the Sagrada Familia.
I did not hesitate to tell our guide that I did not like Picasso but she promised I would find some reward in what I would see. The experience was made fantastic when she gave me an understanding of all art. I now have a greater appreciate and understanding of how to clearly see all art. I will never look at a painting in the way I once did.
The most unforgettable experience was our tour of the Olive Oil Estate. The estate is beautiful and well cared for. We learned so much about olives, the difference, the processing and the results. We were treated like family. I was so involved I failed to take any photographs. We learned how to judge olive oil and the taste test was eye opening. We were served an outstanding lunch prepared by our host followed by a visit to their private quarters where we learned of the hundred of years of history of the family. The pride our host showed of his family was well deserved and for me very emotional. We have shared this particular experience with everyone with whom we have had the opportunity.
I wish I had kept a journal every day and taken more photographs. We are both 87 years old and our schedule allowed for some rest every day and a full day every few days but we used that time for further investigation of Barcelona. As a result our last three days found us so tired we had to cut short some of the sights we had planned to see. Still there is nothing I would have done differently for the trip with this company was unforgettable.
