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.

Highlights
  • This is our most popular trip in China and one of the top trips from the entire Intrepid range. The trip may be quick, but it is packed full of experiences that will give you a great insight into China in a short time.
  • In addition to the main highlights in the big cities of Beijing, Xi'an and Shanghai, you'll get a glimpse of small-town life in Xitang and a taste of the countryside when we stay near the Great Wall. 
  • Our small group size allows us to explore destinations on foot together, eat in authentic local restaurants, travel by subway and train, and escape the tourist traps - all under the expert guidance of a passionate local leader.
  • Spend the night in a charming, family-run guesthouse near the Great Wall. Learn how to make dumplings for dinner and see this iconic structure without the masses.
  • Stay overnight in Xitang, a water town just outside of Shanghai. Imagine a way of life lost long ago as you explore the narrow alleys and canals after the daytrippers go home. 
  • Like everything it does, China’s ancient history is on an epic scale. No matter how many guide books you have read, nothing truly prepares you for the grandeur and immensity of sights like the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and the Terracotta Army (or thousands of local tourists at the Forbidden City!).

My daughter is on a trip to Hawaii right now. She was supposed to go to Europe, but we stuck it out. Instead of texting me how wonderful it is, she is bored out of her ever loving mind. More to come....We will see what day 4 has to offer. I know that right now she is supposed to be cleaning a fish pond next to a dumpy picnic site!! Her luau has been cancelled on day 5. Hmmm....any explanation as to why?? No luau? In Hawaii? We were supposed to be in Italy and France and we get this??!!

Rescheduling our trip was a breeze! ACIS was so flexible about changing our dates, and let us wait up to the very last second to make our final decision about postponing. I am ALWAYS impressed by the swift communication by our trip coordinator, Jeannie Page, and she and the company work so hard to make the process as streamlined as possible. I am constantly recommending ACIS to my colleagues as the best educational travel company, I cannot stress enough how professional and knowledgeable they are. This pandemic messed up three of my personal trips scheduled for 2020, but working with ACIS for my student trips was easy as can be. I cannot recommend this company enough!

This company has the WORST customer service. They don’t answer phones for hours if you have a quest. As a parent you don’t have online account so you can’t call and ask questions. If you sending you previous kids there I would think twice. They are severely under staffed

Hi I am Marco and I have been for my first summer trip abroad to study with a company different of EF. At that time I was happy for sure but the organization wasn’t really good at all. Then I decided to go in Cambridge with EF. I found out for sure that Not all Languages School has their private staff, school,school+dormitory like college, and EF has it.
Most of the EF’school are opened the entire year and the staff teacher dormitory are owned by EF, so you don’t have random teacher but you have qualified teacher that work with EF the entire year and not occasionally.
My experience in Cambridge was wonderful, staff was very available with me for every single things.I met a lot of people and they alway try to not put together people with same nationalities. I had an accident and I went to the hospital with a one of the staff of EF and she helped me a lot.
I decided to go in Toronto with Ef in a very beautiful American School (owned by EF)and then in Nice France recently.
I can’t say other words than “wonderful”. I will be always glad to EF for my languages improvements and to let me meet a lot of people that became friend of mine even after years!
I hope you can try the same feeling I had when I was in every of my trip with EF.
They make you feel home and do not want come in your real home!

My daughter trip to Sydney Australia tour was canceled due to COVID, and the school notified me that there is a cancellation fee of $350. I did not cancel the trip; they did! Took while to get the money back and they were unprofessional when you are able to talk to them
EF Tours is a terrible company, and shame on them for doing this to innocent children and parents.

Since I was a middle schooler myself, I’ve had the privilege of traveling with ACIS. Now as a teacher, and with the help of ACIS, I’ve had the opportunity to introduce my own students to the transformative nature of travel. As someone who has traveled far, wide, and often I can attest to the incredible and unparalleled opportunities that ACIS provides. Not only are their trips carefully crafted to give participants a well-rounded education of culture, history, and appreciation of the environment, they do so with human values at the center.
