We thoroughly enjoyed our 5-city trip through this tour company! Our trip planner was responsive and easy to work with; when I made our interests and needs known, she put together a package offering exactly that. It was a delight to land in Spain with all of the details in place - train tickets in hand, transfers, lodging and guides booked. No need to worry about tickets or schedules, closures or other pesky surprises that often pop up when you "DIY" a multi-city trip like this. The hotels our trip planner selected were very good, in excellent city center locations, yet not too near excessively loud bars, etc. Breakfasts provided by the hotels were great. Staff were very friendly and accommodating.Perhaps the best part of using this tour company through Zicasso were the city guides. We don't normally use them, but since time was tight, I felt we needed to be more efficient than usual. The guides were excellent - wonderful! Each was thoroughly knowledgeable about both their city and the topics we were particularly interested in; each was friendly and personable, with English ranging from good to excellent. Using the guide for a few hours to see the highlights efficiently and get our bearings for later exploration on our own was a very good use of our time and resources.I have already started spreading the word about Zicasso and this tour company to my friends and family; we would recommend and use both again without hesitation.
It's too hard to choose! Wandering around Cordoba at night, joining the paseo on the bridge? Having lunch in the Victoria Gardens, a fantastic local food court suggested by our guide? Seeing the intricate details of the Alhambra through our unbelievably knowledgeable guide? Watching the sun set and the Alhambra lights come up, from the courtyard of the (modern) mosque in Granada? (YES, we got that postcard-perfect picture!).
We should have ditched a night in Madrid and stayed in Toledo. The city had more to offer than we had time to explore - the standard "day trip" was not enough, given our interests.
