This was a 20 year trip in the making. And boy did it ever live up to its reputation. My travel guide helped me pick the best tours and gave me great suggestions. I knew I couldn't do it all, but she helped me focus on the things that I really needed to do. I got to see a ballet at the Sydney Opera House and... Read more
We worked with Shelley from the travel company to flesh out the itinerary for our trip to Australia. She did a really fine job of proposing several side tours and adapting her proposal to our interests. The nice thing about going through Zicasso was that we could compare different agencies and select the one that... Read more
Diane did a wonderful job at listening to what I wanted to do on this surprise trip form my wife. She matched excursion, accommodations and timing to create a wonderful experience. The results was a positively wonderful vacation experience which will be remembered for a lifetime.
I used Zicasso to find a travel agent for a trip to Australia and New Zealand after reading about the company in Travel & Leisure magazine. Only two travel agents responded to my request, and one sent a rote itinerary that showed little thought or imagination. The second agency was great! Karen, the agent,... Read more
Our trip was fabulous, hotels were incredible, locations were perfect, excursions were exactly what we hoped for, and every flight and transfer went without a hitch. Our vacation was the perfect balance of planned excursions and free time. PERFECT!
Before deciding to go with a travel agency, we spent a lot of time doing our own research on what we wanted to do while in New Zealand and Australia. Planning an 18 day trip to countries you've never been can be quite overwhelming, which is why we sought out a travel agency to assist us. A travel agent from our... Read more
We went through several iterations of planning a trip to Sydney and New Zealand with the tour company. Our agent was friendly, patient and knowledgeable. We wanted a camping experience in New Zealand and she integrated that with tour bookings and an itinerary that was perfect. The Australia and New Zealand tour... Read more
Due to our age, my wife and I wanted to plan and experience a "once-in-a-lifetime" vacation while we are still able to enjoy it. We started by contacting Zicasso in early March 2013 if I remember correctly. 2 companies responded. A co-owner of a competing company responded, made many promises, and failed to meet... Read more
This was our first time using a travel agency and it was a very positive experience. Our agent helped us plan a wonderful 5-week trip to Australia and Fiji. She was always prompt in responding to all our many questions and requests either by phone or by email. All the tours she arranged were excellent with... Read more
The travel company listened to our desires for our Australian trip and then exceeded all of our expectations! The trip put us in the cities we wanted to see on our own schedule. The individual tours allowed us to see all of the important sites and the air travel was expertly scheduled to allow for flight delays. We... Read more
Sheila did exactly what I wanted- she listened to our interests, picked some excellent options for us, and then worked with me to tailor the 14 day plan to our maximum benefit. She is very knowledgeable about the whole of New Zealand, and I would not hesitate to use their services again.
Our trip to Australia was a trip of a lifetime and it exceeded all our expectation thanks to our travel agent from the Australia tour company. Our agent worked with us tirelessly for months to customize a package to fit our needs and our budget. Our trip consisted of 10 airline flights, 8 shuttle transfers, 7... Read more
Thanks to our travel agent, we were treated extra special everywhere we went. Every tour operator and hotel knew we were on our honeymoon and did a little something romantic just for us. It was either flower petals on the beds, and nice picture spot together, or a candle lit picnic.
Wonderful! The whole trip went off as planned without a hitch. Attention to detail was paid and it was as if we had a tour director with us for every event. There were a great variety of activities, and many active days where we were hiking, kayaking, riding in a jet boat and other boating days. Read more
This Australia and New Zealand travel company and Lisa in particular were outstanding to work with and she developed an unbelievable 7 week trip for us. Every connection, every flight, every excursion, every hotel/B&B reservation went off without a single problem.
We cannot say enough good things about... Read more
Doing a trip-of-a-lifetime at the last minute (especially being very sick and arranging during the holidays) must be the craziest thing we've ever done! Thanks to Zicasso, these Australia and New Zealand travel specialists, and our agent, it was also one of the absolute best things we've ever done! They didn't miss... Read more
The trip was intended as a "trip of a lifetime" and it turned out to be just that--a fantastic adventure thru three countries. The travel company that we used thru Zicasso was this Australia tour operator and they arranged the Australia portion. They understood the challenge and did not disappoint. The air travel...
