"This Peru travel agency planned and booked a custom trip for me and my wife to Peru in October 2015. The trip included a short stay in Lima, and almost a week in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Their service was outstanding. The planning for the trip was perfect, and we relied entirely on them as we had not been to Peru before. They also went beyond the call of duty by getting a reservation at a good hotel in Lima even though there was a huge convention of the world bank in town at the time. They persisted until they found a cancellation. they even booked two good restaurants for us in Lima. The guides they provided were also excellent, including one who was truly outstanding.

I never would have located this company except through Zicasso. Two years ago we made a trip to Brazil and we looked and looked for a travel agency of this kind and never did find one. I would highly recommend using Zicasso to find the appropriate agency if you are traveling somewhere that you have not previously been to, or if you do not have an agency you are satisfied with."

Hiking the Inca Trail (and learning that it is "an" Inca Trail, not "the" Inca Trail)

We highly recommend this experience for anyone who enjoys food, wine, art and history.

We enjoyed learning about cheese, wine, olive oil and other traditional foods of Italy's Emilia-Romagna region. We especially loved making pasta by hand, guided by award-winning professionals, all the while surrounded by Roman and Renaissance culture and the most spectacular scenery imaginable. It is an opportunity for those who cherish authenticity. We highly recommend this experience for anyone who enjoys food, wine, art and history.

This past October we had the pleasure of seeing the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy and all it has to offer. Historic sites, Castles, small intimate villages, religious sites, vineyards and a class to learn how to cook authentic pasta were just some of the highlights of a tour that will never be forgotten. Beyond that we made life long friends with Ramona and her merry band of tour guides who made our days fun, educational and of course tasty! We loved this region for an authentic Italian experience with the addition of getting a sense of the pride of the people and local flavors. We will return for sure. We would highly recommend Buonjourney Italy if you want to see the best that Italy has to offer.

I returned home from Italy nearly a month ago yet find myself continually drifting back to my experiences there. A few friends and I travelled to the Emilia-Romagna region to participate in an event and found ourselves with a few free days to explore before returning home.

With limited knowledge as to the region, we turned to our host for a recommendation and were introduced to Ramona and her team at Buonjourney Italy. Originally communicating through e-mail, Ramona crafted together an itinerary for our approval. Her attention to detail, concern for our preferences and variety of activities presented immediately convinced us to place ourselves in her capable hands.

It was perhaps the best decision of our trip! Ramona and her Team greeted us promptly that first morning and we were treated like Kings from that point forward. The guides were knowledgeable, professional and personable. Our tour traversed sprawling countryside, medieval villages and historic landmarks along the way. Interspersed throughout the days were lunches, dinners and wine and cheese tastings that left our bellies full yet yearning for more.

I cannot thank Ramona and our "friends" at Buonjourney Italy enough for helping to make our experiences in Italy so memorable.

        About Lost World Adventures

        Founded in 1987, Lost World Adventures offers private and customized trips to South and Central America and Antarctica.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        Your guide will get to know you before beginning to plan your customized experience. If you want to have a relaxing beach vacation, they can arrange that. Or if you’d rather hike up the adrenaline, they are able to offer that as well.

        Who Travels With Them?

        They accommodate anyone from honeymooners to large groups. Trips are generally in middle price range - you won’t find tremendously budget items here, but they do their best to craft a trip based on all factors, price included.

        Where Do They Operate?

        They are focused in South and Central America, with a variety of trips from beach vacations to Costa Rica, food tours in Argentina, or Machu Picchu adventures. They are also among the few small companies providing cruises to Antarctica.

        Why Travel With Them?

        For the variety of trip type and theme you can choose from. They have food and wine tours, adventure tours, beach getaways, and cruises - all of which are customizable to your likes and dislikes. If you’d prefer not to overly customize, they have pre-set itineraries as well.

        About Buonjourney Italy

        Buonjourney focuses on providing homey, friendly, and enjoyable culinary tours in the region of Romagna, Italy.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        Ever heard of Romagna? If not (and most haven’t) Buonjourney aims to change that. This small region in Italy is a haven of history and culinary wonders. You’ll be escorted around by a true local, welcomed like a friend, as they introduce you to the essence of Italian hospitality in Romagna.

        Their emphasis is on Italian food and cooking, and you’ll leave having been immersed in the amazing world of Italy’s regional culinary traditions.

        Who Travels With Them?

        Those travelers who are looking for something a bit different, and are especially interested in learning the ins and outs of Italian regional cuisine will enjoy traveling with Buonjourney.

        This would be an especially attractive Italy tour experience for those visiting Italy for a second or third time. Because while you’ll have an amazing time, you are confined to one region, and a little known one. So you won’t see the major Italian sights everyone knows.

        Groups are a max of 12 allowing for an intimate experience and attentive guides.

        Where Do They Operate?

        They are very specifically focused in a unique little region in the northeast of Italy. You’ll visit local villas, winerys and cellars, local farms, cheese makers, and browse product at markets alongside your hosts neighbors.

        Why Travel With Them?

        If you’ve already “seen and done” the Big Three of Italy, and are now seeking a more homey, localized introduction to the culture, this is the perfect tour company for you. Their tours are culinary focused, so if you’re not into cooking, this might not be the kind local experience you’ll love. However it’s perfect if you enjoy learning and want to get to know the “real” Italy with friendly groups and guides.
