We were really pleased with the entire zicasso experience. We were paired up with Michelle this South Pacific travel company who was extremely knowledgeable re Australia and New Zealand. She mocked up multiple iterations of the itinerary until it was perfect; she was extremely patient and understanding throughout... Read more
Steven, our travel agent, went above and beyond to make our month long trip to New Zealand a fantastic experience. New Zealand is a stunning country and with Steven's custom made itinerary we were able to see much of its beauty, travelling through both the North and South Islands. Steven was very knowledgeable and... Read more
We are so thankful for Michelle at this New Zealand travel agency, she really put together a fantastic package for us. In trying to find an agent for this trip, we searched locally as well, and no one could put together the action packed trip like Michelle did.
Michelle is very thorough, and put a lot of... Read more
This travel agency provided an excellent itinerary for us throughout the North Island of New Zealand. Steven was great to work with, and flexible, as our travel plans changed.

We had a fantastic 12 day family trip in New Zealand! Our agent from this New Zealand travel company put together a great itinerary that allowed our family of five to travel from Auckland to Queenstown with much ease. The hotel accommodations perfectly fit our need with five adults, especially the Rainforest... Read more
We had an absolutely fantastic trip to New Zealand. We spent two weeks visiting Auckland, Hobbiton, Rotorua, Christchurch, Greymouth, Hotika, Lake Mauraki, and Queenstown. We decided to go without knowing much about the country - just that LoTR was filmed there, and we had several friends who had gone and enjoyed... Read more
We had a great trip. One of our most memorable. Our trip was broken up into three parts, Moorea, Tahiti, New Zealand, and Australia. Prior to finding Zicasso and our South Pacific travel agent, we had booked most of our airfare and accommodations in Moorea, and Australia. New Zealand was new to us, and after... Read more

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 travel agent exceeded expectations with respect to our recent trip to New Zealand. All lodging accomodations were outstanding - a nice mix of 5 star hotels with "motels" with eat-in kitchens, all within budget. Locations of the lodging were right on target - typically within walking distances of restaurants ... Read more
A great and surprising experience. I had never used a travel agent before. Thru the Zicasso experience we selected an agent, and then got the full value of her expertise. We had a loose pre-conceived itinerary that she essentially "talked us out of," at great benefit to us. She took the things we wanted to do in... Read more
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
Our New Zealand travel agent planned the perfect trip for us. She was always responsive to me and we worked very well as a team. Never did she get impatient with my questions, changes or concerns. It was a pleasure to work with her. I find the previous comments do not pertain to all travel agents. The places she... Read more
The New Zealand travel company planned a once in a lifetime trip for us! My husband and I spent 2 weeks traveling both islands in New Zealand and found adventure at every turn. Our travel agent planned an amazing trip incorporating all of the experiences we were interested in and suggested many more which were even... 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.
