"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.Read more
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!Read more

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

From the moment I arrived, The Italian on Tour made me feel so welcomed.Read more
The hotel was perfect. Clean, friendly staff, great food and my room was very comfortable with lots of space for luggage. My ride leader, Giovanni was exceptional. He and Chantelle are a fantastic team, very knowledgeable about history, food and culture—spot on with service and value.
If you want to see beautiful scenery, mingle with locals in a quaint Italian city, have an amazing culinary experience and tour through the Italian countryside on your bike, the Italian on Tour is for you! I was blown away by the whole experience and was in awe the entire time! I will definitely go back in the future!
As a side note: I highly recommend setting up a rental bike for your tour. To share my experience, I decided to bring my own bike with me from Canada, which in the end I regret as Air Canada lost it and we had to scramble to try and find a rental bike. I was so thankful that Giovanni took some of his personal time to help me sort out a rental, it really showed how much they care about their clients as they really went above and beyond the scope of the tour.

What Makes Lost World Adventures Stand Out?
Lost World Adventures provides luxury trips in South America, for a discerning clientele.

What Makes Them Stand Out?
Owned by two adventurous foodies, their unique style brings a love of food and culinary traditions to the forefront. Prepare for a laid back, but wonderfully fulfilling experience. The Italian culture with its incredible warmth, compassion, and boisterousness will be as much a character on your tour as the landscape, the locals, and the food (and the wine).
Who Travels With Them?
Foodies, this is the tour company for you. If you love local immersion, cooking, wine tasting, cycling, and history (as it relates to food) you’ll love traveling with Italian on Tour. This is not the company for you if you’re hoping to see a lot of major landmarks or do more traditional sightseeing.
Where Do They Operate?
They have a very specialized approach, focusing primarily in the Marche region on the Eastern coast of Italy. This relatively unknown region has a “hidden secret” vibe - and their local connections and knowledge make you feel as though you’re visiting relatives and friends.
Why Travel With Them?
This is a very unique culinary travel experience, designed especially for you by passionate travel experts. They’re extremely personal in tone, and this approach is refreshingly relaxed. Personal doesn’t imply unprofessional or low quality though. Rather it implies that when traveling with Italian on Tour you truly experience the Italy that everyone thinks of when they think of the countryside, the food, and the culture.
