Anybody Used Zicasso.com?
by Wendy Perrin
I'm hoping somebody can help me answer this question from reader Dina:
"What is your opinion of Zicasso? I was thinking of using this site to help me plan my trip next year to Paris and Italy. Would you recommend it?"
My understanding of how Zicasso works is that travelers looking for customized itineraries fill out a lengthy list of parameters (destination, dates, favorite activites, etc.) and Zicasso's global network of tour operators and travel agents respond with up to three trip options. You peruse the itineraries and book the one that's right for you.
I haven't used Zicasso, though, nor have I heard feedback from any Conde Nast Traveler readers who have, so I can't tell you how well it works. What I can tell you is that, after 20 years of interviewing thousands of tour operators and travel agents for projects for Conde Nast Traveler, the best I've found for France and Italy are on my annually updated list of the world's top travel specialists. You can read reviews of these travel planners, from Conde Nast Traveler readers who've booked trips through them, here.
Meanwhile, does anyone have feedback about Zicasso to share with Dina? I'd love to hear. Thanks!
