Our travel agency perfectly planned and executed an exceptional vacation for my wife, myself and our two grandchildren (aged 15 and 16). I usually plan my own vacations and enjoy them, but I knew I needed help badly. We wanted to take the boys to London, among other things, to take them to some Premier League matches. I really didn't know London, had heard horrific stories of football ticket scams and needed someone knowledgeable, creative, reliable and perhaps most importantly someone who could listen to us and then organize the trip of a lifetime for our grandchildren. And that's exactly what this agency did!

We planned a graduation trip for our daughter and our travel agent, Alex was amazing! He listened to our interests and planned an itinerary that covered everything. We had excellent accommodation and guides who were organized for a hassle-free trip. At our first organized hotel of the day there was a package waiting for us containing all our tickets/tours. He was in contact with me from the planning stage, during and after our departure. Her quick responses provided comfort and reassurance when international travel can be stressful. I have already recommended this travel agency to others and will definitely use them again!

The travel agent was extremely helpful and accommodating in planning our trip. We definitely got to see and do things that we would not have had if we had planned the trip ourselves. We had a great time in Scotland and we definitely want to come back in the future!

The travel agent was very easy to work with and communicate throughout the process. Our initial conversation resulted in an itinerary that needed only minor adjustments to suit our preferences. The app was also very helpful as it contained our itinerary, e-maps, maps and directions for each day. All in all, a fantastic holiday with just the right balance between organized activities and relaxation. Extremely enjoyable trip.

The travel agent and I worked together to plan a personalized trip to Scotland for my family and I. Scotland is a big part of the family heritage and there were special places that were the basis of our time in this country. I must add that not all of them made the "greatest hits" list of people visiting Scotland for the first time, but they were an integral part of my family's trip. The owner Jeff was a pleasure to work with and helped create a one of a kind experience. He was very responsive to my emails and we spoke several times as the details of the trip were agreed and finalized. I even got in touch with another cousin of mine while we were in Scotland. I really appreciated a tour company located in Scotland. I can't say enough good things about Jeff and the agency!

Conor was absolutely wonderful…he listened to everything on our wish list (from long walks for grandma to an exciting castle experience for our 11 year old) and somehow made it all happen in the most magical way. The hotels he found for us were absolute gems and the guide he assigned us knew all about Ireland and became part of our family. Hands down, this first trip to Ireland couldn't have been better.

Cindief from the travel agent planned a wonderful trip for me and my daughter to visit London, England and Paris, France. She found the perfect hotels for us and booked the most amazing tours with experienced guides. Our guided walking tour of London was a highlight for us. Felt like we had spent the day with a very knowledgeable friend. In Paris, the highlight was definitely our evening tour in the iconic 2CV. We really felt like celebrities driving through the streets of Paris. Our guide chose the perfect French music to play on our tour and perfectly timed our arrival at the Tour Eiffel so that we arrived ahead of him just in time for the flashing lights.

I have only good things to say about this travel agency. From welcoming us and helping us to accommodate our two week trip. England, Scotland and Ireland to support the things that came along the way were in place. That's what you pay at the travel agency. Mirella seemed to have a deep connection to these areas, knew about the hidden gems, was able to provide the best transportation, guides, guides, food and music tours. They definitely deserve their 5 stars and I highly recommend them.

I spent 20 days in Ireland, Scotland and England looking for my wife's ancestors and toured England, staying 2 to 4 nights in 8 cities. A complicated trip but it was great. Our travel agent, Mirella, was the BEST. He understands great service that is lacking in most countries of the world today. We had to contact Mirella or the helpdesk about a few shipping issues and while it wasn't their fault they took care of it right away. I'm hard to impress, but they succeeded. Thank you so much for a perfectly planned trip that met all our requirements.

Our trip was a "family" trip with 14 family members (12 adults and 2 children aged 4 years and 19 months). My daughter lives in Ireland for work and we all wanted to go to Ireland to see her. We decided on a two-week holiday in Ireland and Scotland. Our trip was absolutely amazing. My family created special memories that will last a lifetime. We laughed, we danced, we got close, we explored, we really enjoyed ourselves. Our trip was very well planned (thanks Mirella!) and everything went smoothly. I can thank Zikaso and Mirela from the travel agency for that. I discovered Zikaso through an internet search. I was hesitant to use their services as I guess I am "old school" and since so much can happen online I was a bit nervous. I checked Zikaso and all the reviews were positive. I want to thank Zikasos for being such a well organized and honest company. Through Zicass, I was referred to several travel agencies who helped me plan my trip and I chose this one. Mirella contacted me and I knew she was the right agent to help me plan our trip. I was getting a little nervous again planning a trip for 14 people paying money to someone I don't really know anything about. To be honest, at first I would have preferred to use the services of an agency recommended to me by a friend, but I trusted Mirella and Zicasso and I'm glad I did. Mirella listened to what our team wanted and came up with great ideas. He accommodated all our requests and combined it all into a wonderful holiday. Every hotel, tour, car transfer, plane trip, drivers, restaurants - were on time, well organized and just perfect!. Mirella took care of all the details so our group could go and enjoy themselves. I knew everything would be fine because I knew I could trust Mirella. Her tracking skills are amazing. So if anyone is interested in traveling to Ireland/Scotland, do yourself a favor and contact Mirella from this travel agent, she will be happy to do so.

This is our third trip to work with an agency recommended by Zicasso for planning an international holiday trip. Once again we were very pleased with the agency and enjoyed our trip very much. Zikaso recommended two different agencies and we spoke to both. Mirella from this travel agency was the first to contact us. She was kind and listened carefully to our very vague idea of what we wanted to do with the time we had in May to travel to England. After initial discussion, he quickly suggested a general itinerary and we called to ask questions and refine it. After a few more phone calls, we had a plan. We chose this agency over another travel agency that contacted us because Mirella was the first to contact us, responded to our questions more quickly, and provided a suggested itinerary very quickly. Neither my husband nor I had been to England before and trying to narrow down what to see in England in 10 days was absolutely devastating. The only request we had was to watch a Premier League football match against Newcastle United. Newcastle played two matches during our scheduled stay in England, so Mirella's job was to find us tickets to one of those matches and then plan the rest of our stay around that date. The match he found tickets for was in Leeds, and in light of my husband's time constraints and interest in history, he suggested an itinerary that included a visit to Hadrian's Wall and a halfway trip across the north of England to Durham and York. He suggested we spend our remaining 5 days exploring London and museums with private guides and a guided day trip to Stonehenge and Windsor. We finalized the plan and it turned out to be the perfect initial invasion of England!
