My husband and I were absolutely delighted with Zicasso's travel arrangements. Our trip was perfect!
We had only 6 nights to spend in Spain. We already had a loosely planned agenda (a few nights saved to meet up with friends, etc.) but we were anxious to see the country's architectural and cultural treasures and wanted to make the most of our time. I contacted Zicasso and connected with our agent. She worked within our time frame and managed to organize our trip so that we never felt rushed. She found a balance between guided tours and free time to explore the cities on our own. Our hotel accommodations were always centrally located and beautifully appointed.
Our agent personally called us to make sure that we had a good flight and easy transport to our first hotel in Madrid. She gave us great suggestions re sightseeing off the beaten path, tapas, and nightlife. She even negotiated car rental changes when we decided at the last minute to forego the train and continue our exploration of the country's olive groves and windmills!
A last word about our guides--we were so impressed with their knowledge of the rich history of Madrid, Seville, and Granada. Their stories made us appreciate the diversity of the past, the importance of preserving ancient walls while making room for the present, and the possibilities for the future of Spain.
There were so many highlights . . in Madrid, the sunset view from the top of the Circulo de Bellas Artes, the Porcelain room in the Royal Palace, Picasso's Guernica; in Seville, a boat trip on the Guadalquivir, Plaza de Espana, and the Flamenco; of course ALL the food and the rich history . . . But the most memorable part to me was the Alhambra in Granada. Due to Zicasso's contact with a travel specialist in Granada, we were introduced to our private guide who literally made the palace and the gardens come alive. Our guide spoke many languages and actually read to us the poetry inscribed in Arabic that filled the walls. Later, we had dinner at a restaurant overlooking the amazing structure. We watched the sun set and awash the walls in a deeper orange and then the full moon rose over the Alhambra. It was magical.
All of our guides were very kind and genuinely interested in making our trip even better than we had hoped.
