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.

Perillo tour was first class. The tour guide was excellent. All details were handled efficiently and to our satisfaction.

The trip was wonderful, exactly as described and sometimes even better than we expected

WOULD USE PERILLO AND AFFORDABLE TOURS AGAIN. EVERYTHING WAS ORGANIZED AND INSTRUCTIONS WERE EASY TO FOLLOW. EVERYTHING WENT SMOOTHLY. THIS WAS OUR FIRST TOUR WITH PERILLO AND AFFORDABLE TOURS; IT WON'T BE OUR LAST!
