Erik Hastings, travel expert and host of The Travel Show on WABC Radio, the biggest station in New York, was the guest on the Steve Perillo Travel Show this week. In his conversation with Steve Perillo, the third generation CEO of Perillo Tours, Erik Hastings shares his opinion on who should be called a travel expert. He feels that only people like Arthur Frommer, who have traveled extensively and have years of experience doing it should be called travel experts.
He also admits that he likes to do more than just write articles on travel and that is why he does the radio show. He feels that people should see and hear more about the places they want to travel. He also says that consumers should get a more experiential feel of the place.
