This was definitely one of the best trips we have been on and it was first class service from the planning phase through the actual trip. These agents and their company were the best travel agency that we have ever worked with! From the planning phase, which they had a large array of services and options. Our agent and her travel company planned the trip of a lifetime for us! We began planning our 10 year anniversary trip to Italy last summer - almost a year before our trip. We found this agent and her company on Zicasso and she really understood the type of trip we were looking for. Our Spain travel agency did an excellent job planning our trip and providing support and services while we were in Spain. The owner of our travel agency is an excellent guide and has a stable of excellent guides and drivers on whom she calls to provide further support for travelers.

There were quite a few variety of tours I was offered and they were all quite affordable. I finally chose a tour that drove through some lion sanctuaries and I enjoyed myself thoroughly. I would recommend this service. The particular tour I finally decided to take had a large itinerary of activities that were provided for my tour group. We were taken to see and interact with the wildlife around us. Overall my satisfaction with the tour and its itinerary of interesting activities was over abundant. Our whole tour group enjoyed going outdoors to interact with nature and admire the beauty that is Africa. The value was great overall. I didn't feel as if I was overpaying or being robbed of my money with the wonderful experience I had on this tour. If given the chance I would recommend this tour to many others.

It has all different types of tours. Some are just for fun and some are meant to be educational. And some are for both. But they are all really fun It's good. It's good, fun, helps you be productive, it's helpful. Basically, that it and it doesn't cost a lot of money. The whole thing was fun. They were always very nice to me and interested in me. They were constantly aware and knowledgeable of where we were. It was worth a lot, it was educational and entertaining. It was worth the trouble you go through to use it. The price paid for it, you get what you paid for.

"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."

Our trip to Peru was planned perfectly, thanks to our travel agent! He was quick to respond to all of my needs & was very flexible. The hotels and the guides he arranged were great! We couldn't have asked for or imagined a better experience in this magical country!

    About Micato Safaris

    Since 1966, Micato has been operating luxury safaris around Africa.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    With over 40 years of experience in the luxury safari industry, Micato’s background provides the assurance that you will be receiving truly top-notch service. They offer luxury safari’s throughout Africa, and are a great option for families and small groups.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Micato safaris are enjoyed by families, couples, and small groups. Most of their safaris are in the luxury realm, don’t expect much camping, but they do offer some itineraries more geared toward active adventure enthusiasts.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Their safaris operate all over Africa, including Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Botswana, and Mozambique.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Micato provides the perfect mix of luxury and adventure. You spend your mornings and afternoons out on the savannah, spotting incredible wildlife at every turn. Back at the lodge, enjoy leisurely meals, pool time, traditional afternoon tea, and wind the night up around a fire gazing up at the stars. It’s a true vacation. And you can feel good in the fact that you’re supporting responsible tourism. Micato is dedicated to giving back to the local communities they travel within, as well as supporting sustainable travel initiatives.

    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.
