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.

Top Austria Attractions & Experiences

Top Austria Experiences

    Strolling along the Ringstrasse, the promenade that follows the curved outline of the old city walls of Vienna which encircles its compact historic center.

    Joining locals who flock to the ubiquitous cafes in mid-afternoon to socialize, chat and savor kaffe und kuchen (coffee and cake).

    Sing in the Sound of Music in Salzburg and take in the city’s unique culture

    Listening to music by some of the greatest composers of all time at a church, one of a number of venues other than concert halls where tickets are less expensive.

    Viewing and visiting the Imperial Palace, ornate cathedrals and other architectural reminders in Vienna of the grandeur of the Habsburg rule.

    Skiing in Seefeld, Tyrol a cross- country skiing center. Another famous ski resort for the brave heart is the St Anton resort.

    Savoring the characteristics of Austria’s pleasant wines. The country’s location, parallel with parts of France and Germany, and mountainous terrain are well-suited to producing both red and white wines that are far superior to the mass-produced sweet beverage with which it was associated decades ago.

    Walking the streets of Innsbruck Asltadt, a city surrounded by mountains and; houses that dates back to Roman Emperor.

    Driving the panoramic Grossglockner Alpine Road that takes you to a center from which you can view Austria’s highest mountain, The Grossglockner.

    Savor the flavors of wines made in the vineyards of Wachau Valley

    Visiting a famous monastery, Melk Abbey, a Benedictine abbey.

    Take a trek or a stroll through the majestic mountains of Innsbruck.

My Along the Adriatic trip with ACIS was extraordinary! I loved our itinerary of going to Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, and Venice! Such a fascinating look at that part of the world. Our tour guide, Peter Ede, was amazing, and as he described it, it was like going to Austria, set in the Caribbean!

I have enjoyed the diligence and quick response of ACIS. The flight and hotel were scheduled fast, and I have received updates notifications. Also, Ms. Beth Pfohl contacted em to confirm if I do prefer a flight from my closet airport (BWI) or a direct flight from (IAD) from the other airport in Washington, DC area. That was a very nice detail, I really appreciate it.

Sept 2022 was my 23rd trip with ACIS (along with an AIFS 6 week back in the day with Mom the French teacher) and it was outstanding! I went to a teacher conference in Lisbon and was inspired to create a full itinerary for adults just to Portugal. We had great hotels, food, wine, and tours to cork factory, a winery in the throes of picking grapes, and a port tasting. All under the wonderful Tour Manager Sarah-Kate Redding. ACIS also lined up individual tours for each day of Lisbon, Evora, Coimbra, and Porto with guides who spoke excellent English. The entire group of 24 LOVED Portugal. Many thanks to ACIS for a job well done!!! Elaine Bixiones
