Where dreams really do come true
Steve Perillo is proud and excited to announce his latest endeavour, CEO of Perillo Travel VR.
Steve has a wealth of experience having grown up in the travel industry. He is the president and owner of Perillo Tours, America’s largest travel company to Italy. He was a lifelong apprentice to the legendary Mario Perillo, “Mr. Italy”, and represents the 3rd generation of the 73 year old family business.
Steve has led the company through the recent turbulent years of technological and geopolitical change in the world. But his mission remains the same – showing the Italy he loves to American travelers.
In addition to Italy, Perillo also offers vacations to Hawaii, as well as their educational travel division – Learning Journeys.
Mr. Perillo is carrying on his father’s distinctive style of TV commercials as CEO spokesman for the company. In this age of large, impersonal travel conglomerates, Perillo is unique as an owner/operator who personally stands behind every vacation sold.
Steve says “VR is the next logical step for all categories of travel suppliers to give their customers the most “IMMERSIVE” experience possible, to better sell their product/services.
Most recently Perillo’s latest enterprise is the launching of ItalyVacations.com, a custom travel website for all types of custom travel to Italy.
Meanwhile, Mr. Perillo is active in Italian and Catholic charitable organizations such as Unico, NIAF and the Sons of Italy. He’s also a major contributor to the Vatican Restoration Project in Rome.
