We had the pleasure of working with our travel specialist and their travel company for our recent trip to Venice, Slovenia and Croatia. Everything exceeded our expectations. Our travel specialist took time to have several calls with us to make sure our trip was designed to accommodate our personal tastes and interests. From the hotels to transportation between cities (we are not cruise people) everything ran super smoothly. During our trip if I had questions or needed clarification about any of our arrangements, our travel specialist personally responded to me within a very short time frame.We selected this travel company over another Croatian travel agency that was also recommended by Zicasso because of their attention to detail. They went above and beyond to make sure our accommodations fit our requests, they helped with restaurant reservations when requested to do so, and they took great care to manage our return flight to Venice. Not only did they book the flight with reserved seats, but they even handled the fees for excess luggage and excess weight in advance for us so we didn't have the hassle of dealing with any of it.All our drivers and guides were top notch and spoke very good English. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our trip, thanks to our travel specialist and the travel company and we can't wait to go back!I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a trip to Croatia. This was our third trip using a Zicasso travel company and it was the best experience yet!
Everything was so different and wonderful that it is hard to pick the most memorable parts of our trip. But beyond the beauty of Venice, Slovenia and Croatia, I would have to say the highlights were the people we had the pleasure to spend time with. In Istria we went on a truffle hunt at a family owned business. The day exceeded our expectations and was only enhanced by the friendliness of the owners and the wonderful food they prepared for us.We had a wonderful private tour of Hvar with the most charming and friendly driver who took us up into the hills and shared his personal experiences being a native of Hvar. Our day ended with dinner in an abandoned Croatian village with fabulous food prepared by some of the local people.Our last night in Croatia, we traveled outside Dubrovnik to have dinner with a local family. We learned about their family heritage and helped prepare dinner - everything from picking vegetables in the garden, tasting their homemade brandy and wine to making bread in the kitchen. Getting to know the local people and their customs is the most rewarding part of any trip for us.
In addition to these experiences, again, all our guides were very friendly and professional. From our wonderful guide at Plitvice Lakes to our speed boat captain who made sure our day out on the water off of Hvar was a very memorable day, everyone was charming, friendly and super accommodating.
