My husband & I recently traveled to Portugal. Our visit was wonderful. While there are many ways to set up & plan a vacation, for the first time we tried a site called “Zicasso”. Great decision!
Zicasso is an online travel site that connects you with a local travel agent anywhere in the world. Zicasso connected us w/ this travel agent & her associate from this travel company. Once the connection was made we had several conversations & emails to discuss specifically what we’d like to see, how we like to do it.
Our agent compiled a detailed itinerary of our trip. We revised this several times w/her help to create a perfect vacation. Once we had our travel agent planning and answering many questions, we both felt as if a huge burden had been lifted.
We were very happy w/all our interactions before coming to Portugal. Once we met, we were so impressed by both our agent and the associated. They met us at the airport in Lisbon. Waited to make sure we got our car rental (she would have taken care of that too, but we opted to do that separately). Before sending us on our way, presented us w/a bound itinerary complete w/a daily plan, information about each area, vouchers for each hotel (5 in total), a GPS that had every stop already programmed, a cellphone so we could easily contact her, plug-in USB charger, a device so we would have a hot spot for internet & the peace of mind knowing we had a contact should we need.
Our final 3 days were spent in Lisbon, our travel agent and her associate home base. On the morning of our last day they both arrived to take us to the airport. While our associated stayed w/the car, our agent took us to the check-in area and wished us a safe flight.
For anyone planning to visit Portugal, I highly recommend using this company. They not only expertly helped with every detail of our visit, we felt as if we’d made new friends.
Tour of the Douro Valley and our visit to Cascais, Sagres and Cabo da Vicente.
Pretty pleased with our trip. We liked staying in smaller boutique hotels.
