Over the past few years, my husband and I have taken several types of vacations together; California beach getaways, All-Inclusive trips to Mexico, group tours and self-organized vacations to European countries alike... And out of all of the trips we have been on, our trip to Spain, booked with this travel agency, has been hands down our most incredible trip to date!
We were looking for a diverse overview of the country from coast to coast with many activities and methods of travel to experience in between, and with the expert and trustworthy guidance from the owner at this travel company, our expectations of this trip were far exceeded. The travel agency contacted us within 24 hours of our initial inquiry through the Zicasso website, and from this initial point of contact, throughout the planning/booking process, all the way up until the day we arrived and time we spent in Spain, the owner was incredibly organized, helpful, and attentive to our needs and requests. He definitely went above and beyond - guiding us through the planning stages and providing quality, customized service that epitomizes the notion of "handcrafted travel" to suit our own unique travel preferences... and for all of these reasons (and more!), we would absolutely recommend this travel agency for anyone looking to experience the very best of Spain! :-)
Each city we visited in Spain left us with memories to last a lifetime! We wanted to visit multiple cities in different regions within a 12 day period and already had a good idea of which places we wanted to check out, but it was incredibly helpful to use the help of a local travel company to suggest places and activities that we would not have otherwise considered.
Some highlights of the trip were enjoying the Basque beaches and hopping from bar to bar eating Pintxos in San Sebastin...our day trip to stunning Marqus de Riscal winery in La Rioja...the diverse/big-city experience in Madrid (touring the grandiose plazas, a peaceful walk through Retiro park, a lively dining experience at the Mercado de San Miguel, and a private tennis lesson on the red clay courts at the CIT)...lounging by the rooftop pool with gorgeous city views at our boutique hotel and spending a morning doing a private cooking class in Seville...driving through the winding roads, spotting the "Pueblo Blancos" through the green valleys in Andalucia and stopping through small medieval cities along the way (Arcos de la Frontera and Ronda) en route to the beach city of Nerja...and of course, we will never forget our visit to the heavenly Alhambra in Granada...
We definitely experienced a huge variety of places and things and covered the majority of the country!
There is actually nothing that I would change or would have done differently on this trip!... NOTHING! I believe we saw the very best of the country from coast to coast and made the most of our time there (considering we were working with a 12 day window and budget)... The pace was perfect, each place we saw was culturally different from one another, and we had just the right amount of scheduled tour appointments and free time to roam around as we wanted. It was truly a PERFECT trip :-)
