I contacted Zicasso and was referred to two different travel companies. It was apparent from the first contact I had with our agent that he understood exactly what type of trip I was trying to put together. We were taking a cruise which was ending in Barcelona and were wanting to extend our stay by traveling on our own in Spain. Through an exchange of e-mails, in which I was asked very relevant questions by our agent, the perfect trip was created. He got back to me with recommendations and additional questions when necessary in a timely fashion. I felt he really understood what type of travelers we are and that he went out of his way to create the perfect trip for us. He also had no issues or concerns at working within our very defined time frame. He even had all of our paperwork waiting for us at our first hotel as we weren't home during the time frame he would have normally sent it to us! And, he checked on us several times during our trip to make sure everything was going well, a personal touch we really appreciated.
We loved the variety of traveling styles we were able to participate in. Not only did we have a private driver for the trip from Granada to Seville, by way of Cordoba but we were able to take the high speed train to Madrid and a flight on Vueling from Barcelona. Planes, Trains and Automobiles, what fun!
We also really appreciated the small, boutique hotels we were able to stay in. The staff at each one went out of their way to make us feel welcome and spoke enough English, coupled with our minimal Spanish, for us to feel comfortable in venturing out on our own! They were all conveniently located within walking distance of everything we wished to do with lots of dining choices also close by.
The opportunity to have private tours was wonderful. All of our guides were amazing but Manuel in Seville really stood out for us. Being able to make a personal connection with each of these local guides was a highlight for us. The fact that all of them were from the cities they were sharing with us really made a difference, We felt very much like we were on a tour of the local sites with a friend and the love and pride they each had for their home was evident!
We had a very specified time line and feel like we had enough time in Granada and Seville, we would have liked at least one more day in Madrid however. This just gives us an excuse to return at some point in the future! Beyond this, which is in no way a reflection of our travel company, we had the perfect trip!
