Brief Overview: 

Do you love to travel? Dreaming of the luxury vacation of a lifetime but don't want the hassle of planning it yourself? Then check out!

Zicasso matches discerning travelers with the top 10% of travel specialists to provide unique luxury tours. The traveler fills in a simple trip request form describing their perfect trip. This trip request is reviewed by a real person at Zicasso and is hand-matched to 2 or 3 specialists who are best suited to the traveler's needs. These travel specialists compete by communicating extensively with the traveler directly and proposing handcrafted itineraries. Ultimately, the traveler chooses their favorite specialist and goes on their dream trip. Zicasso’s market is targeted at complex international travel, ranging from one-of-a-kind African safaris to unique Australian vacation experiences that are not available via online booking engines.

Zicasso was founded in 2008, and their initial site was built on Drupal 5. The site and the business grew steadily over the years and, by late 2012, Zicasso realized that they had outgrown their existing site and needed a full site redesign and upgrade. Zicasso sought out expert Drupal consultants and chose Hook 42 to partner with them on the redesign and migration from Drupal 5 to Drupal 7. The end result, launched in November 2013, is an image-rich, responsive, and SEO-focused site that streamlines the luxury travel planning process for travelers, agents, and Zicasso administrators.
