See what some of our customers have to say about their recent travels with Perillo Tours in these testimonials:
A few days ago, my Wife and I returned from the North Continental Tour. We had never taken any tours before and, although we heard great things about Perillo, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. I am pleased to report that the tour exceeded all of our expectations. The hotels were excellent and in perfect proximity to see the many sites of Italy. Getting to, from and into each of the places we visited was a breeze. I’m sure that I do not need to tell you how wonderful each of the places we visited were or how great the food was. But I did want to tell you that our tour guide Paola really made our trip the outstanding vacation that it was. Her knowledge of history, food, wine, geography etc. was exceptional. She was always available to answer any questions or provide any assistance. As you can see in these photos, we had a great time and enjoyed each other’s company.
We had a wonderful time on our Italian vacation. Everything was so well planned, we didn’t have to do anything, it was fabulous. The hotels we stayed at were very nice. The meals that were included were delicious. Really enjoyed our tour director Matia, she was so much fun and really taught us a lot of history. We will definitely use Perillo again. Thanks for everything!
When you realize all that goes into a travel experience - the hotels, transportation, tickets to various events, food, shopping and more, the Perillo Tours are more than a bargain. The interaction of the small group vacationer's makes it all worth while. Thank you to all who make it happen.
I could not have picked a better trip for my first international tour than the 14-day North Classic Italy tour with Perillo! I am a retired teacher, limited in funds, so it was important for me to get it right the first time. And with Perillo, I did! A trip of a lifetime! Despite the inherent crowds and time constraints, Perillo made sure we did not have long waits anywhere at all. Our time was optimized, and we were able to see so many amazing sights and places. My favorite? Pompeii! Experience the Roman life without “dressing it up”. Least favorite? Capri. It was too heavy in shopping and too light in history. The meals were amazing, and you’ll have to pace yourself as you will have 4-course meals every night. The hotels were excellent! I felt positively pampered. The bus was modern and very comfortable and clean. The local guides were some of the best- extremely knowledgeable and efficient. Our tour director, Nadia, worked constantly to smooth our way every day. As a retired teacher who had to plan field trips, I know how challenging all that coordination can be. She was a seasoned professional! And I cannot say enough about the entire group- friendly, cooperative, and kind. I returned feeling that I was able to get a full Italian historical immersion to relive in my memory every day. I highly recommend Perillo!
What can I say about our Vesuvius Tour other than it was amazing. Our tour guide Daniela Senise was exceptional. I had a medical problem on the trip - got on the plane in New York walking - got off the plane in Rome unable to walk. Through Daniela's caring, she arranged for a doctor to see me at the hotel, welcomed me on the parts of the tour I could do and was very honest in telling me which parts of the tour would have been impossible for me to do on the walker and eventually in a wheelchair for the last five days of the trip. She was always helpful, never made me feel like I was an imposition/bother. It is because of her that we can still say we had a marvelous time. She is smart. She is friendly. She is knowledgeable. Everything moved smoothly. Daniela is a pure treasure and Perillo Tours should hold on to her.
Our trip to Italy (Versuvius Tour) was an outstanding experience thanks to Daniela Senise and the Perillo Team. Daniela was an awesome tour director managing our itinerary while keeping an eye on all the details to ensure we had a great experience. I know there are others behind the scenes working on the details too and want to express my appreciation for them as well.
Words cannot adequately describe the experience we had with Perillo tours. ! Our 14 day northern Italy classic tour was a dream come true. Every day I woke up and felt like someone should pinch me, it was surreal. Everything was top notch from the hotels, restaurants, the itinerary and the wonderful tour guides and bus driver. I came home completely satisfied knowing that I went to Italy and so everything I wanted to see. The only disappointing part of the trip was Milan. I would've rather had more time to spend in the Sorrento/Capri area. Milan could not compare to the other cities that we visited and the activities that we did. Overall, we had a fantastic time and I highly recommend perillo tours to all my friends and family.
My husband and I recently returned from the 14 day continental tour of Italy. We picked this tour as our honeymoon and could not be happier with our choice! We had such a great time and our tour guide, Paola was incredible! We saw so many breathtaking sights, learned so much about the history and culture of Italy and ate incredible food. This trip was absolutely amazing and I just want to thank Perillo for all their hard work, awesome tour guides, and showing us the best of Italy. We can't wait to come back!
What is the definition of Perillo Tours: PERFECTO!!!!!. Perillo Tours met and exceeded all of our expectations. From the first day when our Tour Director Irena met us at the airport till the last day of our trip when she took us back to the airport. This was a carefree and stress free vacation , the only thing we were responsible for was being on time for our scheduled tours and dinner. The hotels were exceptional. Our favorite was the Westin Europa & Regina Hotel in Venice . We had a different tour guide in each city that we visited. Their knowledge of the museums and church's that we visited was incredible. This was the trip that we dreamed of to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Thank you Steve Perillo and your team. A special thanks to our tour director Irena for treating us like family.
The Southern Italy and Sicily tour was fabulous! The places we visited were varied and filled with culture, history, and wonderful sights. It was highly diverse. Our travel guide Raffaelle, was so fabulous. He made our trip. Perillo tours are highly organized, excellently guided and competitively priced. Definitely will use Perillo again. I first heard of Perillo as a child living in the Bronx, NY. All the people from the Arthur Avenue secition used them, and as you can see we still are!
My wife and I took your tour in may. I just wanted to tell about the fantastic experience we had with our group and the exceptional guides at every venue. we were quick to learn the first day with Irenea that it wasn't just a job it was there passion and there life. All the guides Mauro, Max and the rest (that I can't remember their names) went beyond anything we could have expected. They made our trip worth every penny that we spent
We have recommend Perillo Tours to all of our friends and family and anyone we hear about who is thinking of going to Italy. We certainly intend on going back.
We will always remember our "Trip of a Lifetime". This was the greatest time we have ever had traveling and you made our 50th Anniversary something we will remember for the rest of our lives.
My husband and I had the most fantastic tour of Rome and Tuscany through Perillo Tours. This tour took us to many of the most popular places to go and I would book it again in a heartbeat and tell everybody that I know what a great vacation Perillo tours did for us.
I just wanted to take a minute to tell you just how pleased I am with the service and great attitude from one of your travel agents - Terry
We just went to thank you for all your assistance in helping us plan our trip to Italy. We enjoyed every aspect of the trip. This was our first European trip and we did not know what to expect. Thank you again for your great service.
I have to thank Perillo Tours for an absolutely terrific vacation! The accommodations were wonderful; the side trips were both enjoyable as well as informative but most importantly, Our tour guide, Cousin Burt, was great!
I just came back from the Marco Polo Tour. Everything was fantastic. The tour guide went above and beyond to meet our every need. The hotels were great – and great locations! The only negative was that it was too short! I can’t wait to go back. It will surely be with Perillo Tours.
This whole tour far exceeded my expectations! Francesco was a fantastic tour leader. He was adept at handling 39 personalities and made our tour very enjoyable! Thank you Francesco and Perillo Tours!
Mirna was a superb tour leader – the best I’ve had on multiple trips and tours worldwide!. Not only was she super organized and knowledgeable, she was extremely patient! Mirna handled all the guests professionally, tactfully and effectively. I would recommend Perillo Tours to anyone!
I have never enjoyed a vacation as much as this one to Hawaii. I loved the beauty and to be able to learn so much Hawaiian Traditions and Cousin Bert was the best throughout out our vacation. We are honored to have Bert our new cousin in Hawaii. Our days were action packed and so very fun. We will return. Aloha And Mahalo.
I could not imagine coming to Italy and not doing another Perillo Tour. Mirna was an excellent guide.
Wherever we went, we never had to wait for anything. We will recommend a Perillo Tour to all of our friends and would definitely take another one of your tours again.
Perillo is first class all the way. Everything was wonderful. All the guides were fantastic and Nadia was THE BEST!
First trip to Italy – first tour experience – everything was outstanding. We skipped lines and had the best accommodations and tour guides. Well done Perillo!
We just got back from our "Italy North Classic tour". We had a great time!! I cannot tell you what an awesome tour guide we had in Lorenza!
My wife and I just returned from our North Continental 14 Day tour of Italy and wanted to let you know it was fabulous. We cannot think of a better way to see so much great art and history and culture in such a short time. Thanks again for offering such a great tour.
I just wanted to say – thank you to you and the Perillo staff for arranging such a perfect Tour for me and my husband. This was just wonderful-I have been bragging to my friends and family how great the Perillo family took care of us.
We just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had. The accommodations, food and tours were all terrific. There was a nice balance of group time and alone time. It was great not having to deal with luggage too. We would definitely recommend Perillo to anyone considering a trip to Italy.
Just returned from the Vesuvious tour from 28 Aug to 6 Sep. What a wonderful experience! Would consider another Perillo tour for sure! The key to the great experience I had on this tour was largely through the efforts of your tour coordinator, Rosella.
