This was a fabulous trip and first class service all the way.
Perillo had the best guide and bus driver of any other tours I have taken. Very professional and helpful. Many extras were included. The included restaurants were outstanding. More meals were included than on usually tours. Everyone enjoyed it and we had a blast.
The tour leader Anna was a very professional and experienced leader, and so was the bus driver Claudia. My overall experience with Perillo tour company was awesome.
