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.

Highlights
  • Hike through the hills and valleys of the Wicklow Mountains National Park, discovering fields that once housed potato farms, and emerge from lush green forests to peer towards deep coloured lakes.
  • Descend into Glendalough and visit a monastery, where a local folklorist will explain some of the histories and mysteries of the trails. Ireland is much more than leprechauns and four leaf clovers!
  • If you ask us, some of the best views are a little off the main trail. Take a rest stop on top of Luggala, overlooking the Guinness-coloured Lough Tay, and consider summiting Derrybawn and Mullcor peaks.
  • The small sleepy towns in the Wicklow Mountains are arguably as charming as the countryside itself. Rest and recoup in comfort as you stay in handpicked bed and breakfasts along your journey.
  • Did you really head to Ireland if you didn’t try some of the local drop? Stop by the Powerscourt Distillery one afternoon for a group whiskey tasting of some of the best Irish tipples on offer.

    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....

    To say that planning a trip in the midst of a pandemic is challenging is definitely an understatement. It is in these times that ACIS truly shines! My interactions with ACIS staff have just given so much confidence that I can seriously say I am able to "seat back and relax" knowing that we are in such good hands.

    I recently traveled on a teacher convention to Budapest Hungary. This was my 8th convention and probably the most amazing one ever. The trip was perfectly planned, the ACIS staff and the tour leader Peter Ede were exceptional! Everyone was so happy to be back traveling, and of course, Budapest is always fun and breathtaking!

    Hi James,
    We are counting down the days until we can travel abroad! I must say this “I CAN’T WAIT TO
    TRAVEL AGAIN”!
    My friends and I are planning to visit a foreign country, and we have not come to a mutual
    agreement on which country to visit. As you know, we are cash strapped. As a seasoned traveller,
    can you please suggest a budget-friendly tourist destination, the best mode of transport to use
    and the duration of stay?
    Bye! I am looking forward to your reply.
    Regards,
    Loli

The professionalism, experience, and dedication of the staff has enabled the company to overcome challenges and to continue offering the best travel experiences in the industry. I’m very much looking forward to our continuing work together!
