I just returned from a two-week trip to Cambodia and Thailand planned by a travel partner that Zicasso connected us to. I traveled with two friends (all women) and we were thrilled with the hotels, activities, and local guides that this company booked for us.
I’ve planned and booked six do-it-yourself international trips on my own over the last ten years, but I was a little overwhelmed with the prospect of planning my first trip to SE Asia. This is the first time I’ve used an agent, and I am glad we did. From the start, the company was responsive about working with us to design the vacation we wanted. We still maintained control of what activities we engaged in, without the hassle and time commitment of making the logistical arrangements ourselves.
We requested a “fast paced” trip and indicated the types of activities we enjoy (biking, kayaking, etc.) and our travel company came back with good recommendations. The pace of the trip was what we expected and suitable to our energy level and travel style.
Our travel company arranged for local tour guides in Siem Reap, Cambodia, and Bangkok, and both were exceptional. They accompanied us through all of our activities and provided information on local sites and culture that we could not have gleaned from a guidebook. Our tour also included all transportation to/from airports as well as locally, and this proved to be convenient and comfortable as well.
The hotels that our travel company selected for us were top notch and exceeded our expectations. They also coordinated with all local activity providers (e.g. cooking class) to accommodate our vegetarian diets.
After having the five-star experience of personalized travel provided by this company, I don’t know if I will go back to the DIY approach. I would definitely use this company and/or Zicasso again for any future travel to SE Asia. Thanks also to our representative who responded quickly and provided valuable insight on the areas we traveled to.
