"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)

Another wonderful walking experience

From the moment we met Alan we felt confident and comfortable that this trip will be great and it was ! Great bikes, good advice, long lunches on route (made for relaxed short afternoon ride !), accommodation and food kept getting better and better. Wonderful trip, as energetic as you want it to be. The Spanish people are wonderful, the area you ride is diverse, interesting, full of history and culture. We loved our food and wine and trip cycle went from Fawlty Towers quirky fun dinners to stunning cuisine and wines. It caters for all tastes. A good, fun cycle in an amazing area.

My girlfriend and I did the 6 day self guided Mountains to the Sea tour in September this year. We had a fantastic time on the route that Alan and Vivien laid out for us travelling from the picturesque foothills of the Pyrenees through the beautiful Catalan countryside all the way to the relaxing seaside town of Palamos via the historical city of Girona and its architectural delights. Also along the route was the wonderful La Rectoria guesthouse and gourmet restaurant. Definitely worth a trip back to in its own right. Overall the holiday was a fantastic balance of activity and relaxation and of course the weather was great too. Alan was very helpful and accessible along the way to point us in the right direction and offered great advice of things to do and see as well as places to eat and drink along the way (Cheers Alan). Cycle Catalan comes highly recommended.

      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 Cycle Catalan

      For almost a decade, Cycle Catalan has offered unique itineraries for seeing the Catalonia regions in northeastern Spain.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      They craft itineraries for cycling and walking tours throughout the beautiful nature and towns of Catalonia. Apart from small group guided cycling tours, they also are well known for providing self-guided and independent cycle options. Group tours have a max of 20 people and minimum of 8. Multiple types of package are available, catering to all different types of traveler, but they all encompass the warmth of Catalonian culture.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Their cycling trips are well suited to active travelers. Most itineraries are not strenuous and are enjoyed by older travelers as well as young and middle aged. They can and do accommodate singles, couples, and small groups. Private group options are also available.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Trips are centered in the Catalonia region of northeast Spain. This encompasses Barcelona, as well as a number of small towns, both of which exhibit the same vibrant culture, unique cuisine, and historic background.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Their motto is don't just be a tourist, be our guest". With this philosophy, they plan each itinerary to have a local and cultural feel from start to finish. They spend a lot of time in researching an area and making sure every detail is taken care of from hotels to restaurants. You can rest assured every route has been thoroughly ridden and checked before you travel! Prepare to learn about Catalonia, enjoy delicious food, be active, explore, and also have some leisure time to wander through markets and festivals. It’s the best way to see Catalonia for active travelers looking for a small group travel experience.
