Style Style Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.
Retreats Similar to a self guided tour but staying in one location only with activities and day outings included as a part of the stay.

What a disappointment this company is. After placing a deposit in early 2020, of course the trips to Australia were cancelled the next two years because of covid. Many companies that were in a similar situation offered full refunds and offered options to customers; not so with ACIS. Two years later with my daughter now in college and no visibility into the craziness in Australia the trip wont happen for her. Whether ACIS got PPP money or not, the right thing to do is to refund money for a service / experience you can't provide. I see many others are frustrated with similar experiences. A class action suit against the company may be the only way to go to get their attention. Do the right thing; it will pay off for you in the long term versus trying to give people the shaft today. What goes around comes around....

I went on the Berlin, Germany training tour. I left the states at 7am on a Thursday and arrived in Berlin on Friday morning at 7am (there is a 9 hour time difference). They picked us (our little group of 3 that left from Sacramento) up at the airport and we started our day of touring the city-- no rest! It was tiresome, but we spent the whole day walking around,seeing some museums, eating out, enjoying a very rich hot chocolate at a Chocolate House. By the afternoon, we met up with all of the various travel groups and did some more tours, ending the evening at a great German restaurant, then taking a bus back to our hotel. We all slept about 10 hours.

Up on Saturday morning to take our fast and easy Covid test for the return flight (NO covid in our group!), had a 2 hour training at the hotel, then onto the bus and back to downtown Berlin, where we started a walking tour with a local guide, Daniela. She lived through the Cold War and was able to tell us so much interesting stuff about life in East/West Berlin/Germany during the cold war. It was sad and amazing, reverent and depressing, but I loved what I learned and feel like I can appreciate the history of Germany so much more.
Around 4pm we were let go to roam and enjoy the evening on our own. I enjoyed the down time. Slept so well on Saturday night.

Sunday morning, 8am start. Another 2 hours of training at the hotel. These training sessions were so eye-opening for me. I didn't realize how much I didn't know about traveling with a large group of students. I took pages of helpful notes and had all of my questions answered. After the training, we took the bus (luxury bus, btw) to Potsdam and toured that small city. We got to tour the castle where the big 3 (USA, Russia and England) met after WWII to discuss the future of Germany. Bus back to Berlin, where we had some time at Potsdamer Platz to see the modern part of the city, have a farewell dinner together with the whole group, and then took the subway home (to get that experience of public transportation). Up Monday morning for our flight home.

It was a whirlwind trip, and the 2 full days of travel to spend 3 days in Berlin was tiring, but totally worth it. I would do it again. I feel so much more prepared for my Spain trip next summer. Thanks to EF!!

My friend and I had the luxury to have gone on a safari in Kenya in December 2021. The guide was fantastic in his knowledge of animals and was accomodating to stay longer at times to take more pictures. We went on a couple of outings that were not scheduled and they were the best. It was once of a lifetime experience as we saw all the animals on our list. Kenyan staff were organized, friendly and helpful. Hotels were absolutely great in their location ( in wilderness). Rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. Just, at times, the shower did not work well but Ritz has no power over that. Food was good, wine from South Africa was light and palatable. It was probably the best trip I ever went to.

The customer service was terrible-none of the service reps had any idea what they were doing and often gave different informations. The flights i had to cancel were credited in flight credits but these credits were only to be used under very strict conditions (within a few months, with all the original booking members), making it near impossible to rebook. Spent hours on the phone clarifying this, each time getting a different answer. Would never use again.
