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.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.
Basic - 2 star You'll stay in no-frills, but clean and comfortable, hotels or guesthouses. A 'Basic' trip might also involve a few nights of camping.
Value - 3 star Mid-range budget with accommodations ranging from comfortable lodges, guesthouses, and homestays to three star hotels.
Premium - 4 star 3 to 4 star western hotel equivalents. While not all lodging will be 'luxury' they will be quite comfortable by western standards.
Luxury - 5 star The highest level of comfort and service. All accomodations are in four or five star hotels, boutique lodges or high-end homestays.

We had the most fantastic trip to Greece! Traveling in February to Athens, we met our tour manager and dove right into the itinerary. Our group consisted of 47 students and 5 chaperones. The ancient sites were breathtaking. All of our tour guides were knowledgeable and knew how to engage high school learners. Jeff, our tour manager, kept us moving but magically knew when it was time to take it a little easy. The accommodations were clean and comfortable and the food was unforgettable!! Jessica, our state side ACIS contact was extremely helpful throughout the entire organization process. Her enthusiasm always keeps me going. I cannot think that any aspect of the trip could have been better! Even the February Greek weather was great! It was warm and we had snow capped mountains in the background of our pictures.

I have been traveling with ACIS for years, and their reaction to traveling during the pandemic underlines the reason why. They have been extremely communicative, there was never a question of what the policies were, and what the deadlines were. In fact, they were extremely generous in their refund policies. In a time where they could have easily stuck to their written policies, they went above and beyond and led the industry in terms of balancing business and fairness. I continue to choose to travel with them because of these reasons and look forward to our Italia 2020 trip in 2022!

As we close the pandemic, I can't help but reflect on the trip that almost opened it! We traveled to Greece in late February with 47 students. We experienced the trip of a lifetime!! Powerful moments at historic sites mixed with wonderful moments along the way, this was a fantastic trip for our students as well as our staff! Safety was priority one and we soon learned upon our return why ACIS was talking so much about safety!

The sites were magnificent. The food and accommodations were excellent! Our tour manager took care of us from security gate to security gate and made sure we had a fantastic trip! On the States side, Jessica was such a great support. Her knowledge and care made sure we pulled this off!! Wow! We can't wait to return!!

I loved my Europe travel experience with ACIS and highly recommend them!
We took a middle school group to Italy for the first time and it was awesome! Our guide was so knowledgeable, organized and fun, the kids loved him!
Our program manger was helpful, encouraging, and flexible when some changes had to be made. She made arrangements to accommodate us, and get the best deal! We loved her too!
A great experience for the students, parents and us! I look forward to more ACIS adventures! Thank you!

I used ACIS for the first time last year after running tours with another company for 15 years. I will never go back. Hotels are truly central, the meals are substantial and the guides are excellent. The pre travel support I received from my Tour Consultant, Jeannie, made the planning of our trip so much easier than their competitor.

But here's where ACIS really stands out to me. We were in country in March 2020, two days before the Covid travel shut down. Long story short, things changed within days after our departure. You can tell a lot about a company by how they respond during a time of crisis. ACIS shined. We had our new flights within hours and we all got home safely. Even though they didn't have to, they even kicked back the money to my travelers for the day we missed in Madrid.

Even with all of this, my travelers had a life changing travel experience. As a matter of fact, I just received a text message from a graduated traveler thanking me for her travel experience and how much it changed her life.

There are other travel companies out there, many probably cheaper. Please remember this - you get what you pay for. Are you really in London if it takes two train rides to get into the center of the city? How much time do you lose in the city because you have to catch the last train? I wish I realized this 15 years ago. Don't make the same mistake I did.

I have been working with Jeannie Page during the pandemic to make our trip to Quito and the Galapagos Islands happen. We have had to reschedule the trip three times due to the timeline of the disease. Each time, Jeannie has been amazing. She has organized group zoom meetings with a tour guide from Ecuador to inform my 30 participants about how our trip is going, the support ACIS is providing, and how the pandemic is looking in Ecuador. This has created a great deal of comfort for my participants and 90% of them are traveling with me this summer. Her quick response to my questions and genuine concern about how I am doing creates an environment of support during these stressful times. I highly recommend ACIS and Jeannie to help you through the process of traveling with students in this new enviornment.
