"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)
5.0 January 2018
My trip to Scotland was amazing! There was something for everyone to enjoy. From the beautiful landscapes, sheep everywhere, botanical gardens, Queen's yacht & palaces, to beautiful old world cities and castles. We also toured a whisky distillery and St. Andrews golf museum, even a cruise on Loch Ness! The Scottish food and drink was delicious. I especially enjoyed exploring the old city of Edinburgh with its architecture and history, as well as the castles. Our tour supervisors were organized, knowledgable, friendly and helpful. They even made our longer travel days more enjoyable with games and fun facts. We had great guides and our driver for the week was fantastic. I am definitely going to continue to use them for my travel needs. I highly recommend this trip to everyone!Read more
