"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."

          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 Wine Lovers Tours

          They run specialty wine tours in regions around the world.

          What Makes Them Stand Out?

          Immersion in a specific wine region - wine tasting, educational, fun, meeting winemakers, activities such as cooking classes or sightseeing. These tours are all about the wine and the food - probably most enjoyed by those with a little bit of prior wine knowledge, but those new to wine tasting will love this introduction!

          Who Travels With Them?

          Guests come from all ranges and walks of life with one thing in a common: a shared love of wine, food and travel. Travelers tend to be on the wealthier side, as often is the case among wine enthusiasts, however they do try to price tours fairly, and pack a lot of value for the cost. Typical group size is 15-22 people, or they can also design a customized private tour.

          Where Do They Operate?

          They offer tours to just about every major wine region in the world, however their particular areas of specialty include France and Italy followed by Spain, Germany, Greece, Portugal, Croatia, South Africa, Australia & New Zealand and Chile.

          How Does it Work?

          Deluxe motor coach, or small van, or private car. 4-5 star hotels. As these are vacations they are mindful of the fact that this is your vacation and reflect this in their itineraries, where they try to balance both value, activities and leisure. For example you might visit 2-3 wineries with tastings, wine-pairings, site visits and other activities with multi-course lunches or dinner included.

          Why Travel With Them?

          If you enjoy the camaraderie of meeting and traveling with those of a similar interest and passion for wine, these tours will be perfect!

          They have established a niche as ‘artisan craftsmen’, their products being the itinerary itself on wine and food tours. They follow a 3 pronged approach with a judicious combination of wine, local food and local culture. From the moment the tour starts, you’ll be taken care of.

          In their own words “We are not the largest in our niche and we started long before the vast majority of other wine and tour operators. We were in the avant-garde of enotourism long before that term was coined. We don’t like surprises and don’t expect any to happen on any of our tours. The object is to learn about a region’s wine, food and culture, and have fun in the process. That just about sums up our philosophy.”
