Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type 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.
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.
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.
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 / Independent 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.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
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.

ACIS is an amazing peer travel company to work with, especially during this unprecedented time of Covid. ACIS continues to be a leader in the industry, standing behind their incredible quality of service and experience while keeping safety as their highest priority. I have worked with ACIS for the past 21 years. First as the parent of a traveler, then as a trip chaperone and now as a group leader; and I wouldn't travel with any other peer travel company as my experience with ACIS has consistently been outstanding.

I have been traveling with ACIS since 1999 and each trip has been a spectacular journey from the planning process right through to departure and our return to the states. The representatives are extremely helpful and the tour guides are amazing! They are exceptionally knowledgeable and speak to the students, not at them. From beginning to end, I feel well taken care of, they tailor the trip to my students and their specific needs. Flights, hotels, meals are all excellent as well as the venues we go to. All of this is done at a reasonable cost. My students come back changed, "Travel Changes Lives" is exactly right! I would highly recommend ACIS!!! I look forward to getting back on a plane and traveling abroad with my students as soon as possible with ACIS!

ACIS is hands down the best in the business for educational travel. I have been traveling abroad with students since 2005 but exclusively with ACIS since 2011. They have provided my students with a top-notch experience every year. Aside from creating outstanding itineraries and/or working with group leaders to customize their own, ACIS has mastered the minor details which could be easily overlooked when organizing an educational tour for students. Establishing quality and centrally located accommodations, diversifying meals, being flexible with group sizes, and providing experienced and dedicated tour directors are all top priorities in their tour development. For example, I can always count on ACIS to put us in a centrally located hotel near the action as opposed to a cheaper hotel 30 minutes outside of the city center; I do not worry about student complaints of repetitive dinners; and I know that I can choose a catalog tour to Iceland with 25+ students or customize a tour through Mexico with 15 students. I have found ACIS to be the best value for the money spent.

ACIS also has top-of-the-line customer service. Tour consultants are readily available for your assistance. They are extremely accommodating, professional, hard-working, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. I have never been disappointed or had difficulty resolving complications. Additionally, ACIS has been extremely accommodating to my students and their families in response to the COVID-19 travel dilemmas. I will definitely be traveling with ACIS in the future!

Funny---and interesting that all of their 5-star reviews are from this month where the company has moved all tours AGAIN to 2022 and there are some really angry people. Not angry because of moving tours to next year due to Covid, but angry because ACIS is withholding refunds of money due to parents. Their "enhanced cancelation" policy is a bunch of bs. They're not refunding me $1125 of paid-in-full tour, as my son cannot go next year. So, for all of those that have written a STELLAR review on behalf of ACIS this month (feb 2021) thanks for sticking up for your buddies at ACIS. The rest of us, struggling to even try and pay for such an extravagant trip for our children, are out a ton of money because as one ACIS rep told me on the phone "we need to pay bills too." I'm sure that PPP money you got will cover you just fine. The rest of us will figure it out from here.

ACIS is unmatched! From the planning stages all the way to our daily excursions one thing that ACIS does better than anyone else is check in with their customers. My students and I are in safe hands the entire time, and if I ever needed anything, I don't have to make a move. Tour consultants call their group leaders while we are on the trip to make sure we are happy and satisfied. I always forget about this until I see a phone being handed to me and hear, "It's for you." Every trip I've taken with students has been a wonderful, engaging, and educational experience. Leading students on an international excursion is not for the faint of heart, but ACIS provides support the entire way. No matter how big or small a question is, the tour manager will respond with professionalism and genuine care. Local guides are knowledgable and dedicated to teaching and the accommodations are clean, comfortable, and close to the sites. And, of course, the daily adventures and local, authentic food are in a tie for my favorite part of traveling. You cannot go wrong with this company.

My high school has used ACIS since the '80's. I am honored to have taken over the trip from the teacher that took me to Europe when I was a student. Throughout the years, ACIS has provided the most outstanding experiences for our students. I have compared similar trips that other companies offer and have actually used another company for a different trip, and nothing compares to ACIS. From customer service, to the tour managers, to the accommodations, to the excursions, everything ACIS does is top tier. We travel on the most convenient flights, stay at the nicest and best-located hotels, eat local and authentic cuisine, and fill our days with the most meaningful outings and connections. When something unexpected comes up during a trip, ACIS has always stepped up and made on-the-fly adjustments that made the new situation seem normal. When COVID shut down two trips in a row, ACIS made the most generous refunds possible for our travelers. After leading multiple trips with ACIS, I am certain that they will continue to exceed my expectations for years to come.
