We explained to our India travel agency what we felt we wanted for our first experience to India. We are twin sisters and although not young like to travel a little off the beaten track. As we had never visited India and had friends who mostly travelled India the main routes (i.e. the golden triangle) it was difficult to know what to ask for. After Susan heard us opining on our ideal trip, we felt she really understood the spirit of what we were looking for. From an early (very early)morning tour of the underbelly of Mumbai, to riding elephants for close up of rhinos, small boutique lodgings as the Flame of the Forest to the elegance of the remote Glenburn Tea Estate. And then the Hornbill Cultural Festival in Nagaland (really off the beaten track) and the stay in the wonderful Ultimate Luxury Camp ( the best curry cook ever).......we had such great experiences and so much fun...
Your overall comments on Zicasso
This is the second time I have used Zicasso. May have seen small article in magazine that caught my initial interest. Both trips were amazing and will definitely use their services again.
Susan created experiences that felt off the beaten tourist path and we love the remoteness of the locations that she planned. It was also active (game drives, some hiking, city tours, learning about tea,....). We had good fun and because of the smaller venues met some lovely people along the way (we met a couple from Mumbai that took us for wonderful tour of Bandra and then dinner at local coastal restaurant). We felt that the ground staff (guides, drivers, etc) were so good that we learned so much about the venues we visited but also about politics, culture, daily life, and hopes for the future of India.
Stay longer..... Travelling in India requires a lot of travelling between areas. We had 8 flights and a lot of ground travel so we either would stay longer at each location or cut one out activity and stay extra days in some places.
