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.

Top Ireland Experiences and Attractions

Top Ireland Experiences

Touring Dublin with its mansions and townhouses, not to mention impressive literary legacy (home of James Joyce, Brendan Behan, and Oscar Wilde)

Hiking through rolling green hills at the Ring of Kerry on the Iveragh Peninsula, overlooking the craggy outcroppings, ancient ruins, and the sea and islands beyond

Kissing the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle, near Cork (hint: it requires some effort)

Drinking a Guinness – with foam expertly shaped into a shamrock -- in an Irish pub, while gabbing with the locals for hours and listening to toe-tapping music

Sailing with the amazing Irish coastline in view

Taking a short cruise to places like remote Skellig Michael Island, eight miles off the coast of southwest Ireland, and climbing 600 stone steps to the top for a picnic lunch and incredible views

Stepping across the thousands of basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway, remnants of an ancient volcano that extends into the North Channel in Northern Ireland

Exploring the incredible ruins and archaeological sites 

Enjoying water adventures such as surfing or fishing in opal-blue waters of the Dingle Peninsula

I wish I could give them zero or negative stars. This is absolutely the worse customer service I have ever dealt with. They make it impossible to change reservation ( Aer Lingus canceled the flights due to covid) this company wouldn’t even let me reschedule. They said a supervisor had to call me back in 24-72 hours. Then I was informed that I had until the next day at noon to reschedule or lose my reservation.
They did everything they could do to make sure I missed the window of being able to reschedule.

Me and my best friend went on the London/Dublin tour. The tour guide was great but I honestly don’t see where the money went. We only got one meal per day and it was terrible. Rooms were shared and not private. No tour was actually included. They dropped us off at various landmarks and we had to pay and wait in line on our own if we wanted to tour them, there was nothing scheduled for us. The final goodbye dinner was laughably bad, like the portions were small, food was cold, and ice cream was dessert but…it was literally all melted. Yes they served everyone bowls of liquid ice cream, I am not exaggerating in the slightest. Before booking the trip, it was extremely difficult to get anyone at EF on the phone to answer questions, and emails usually went unanswered. I do not recommend this service at all. The only positive was that we got to meet some other cool people.

I don't even know if this company Aer Lingus Vacation Store is still in business. They are NOT part of Aer Lingus airlines. They have had my money since January 2020. They canceled my 2020 trip and gave credit - NO REFUNDS. Travel advisory for Ireland in Sept. 2021 says DO NOT TRAVEL to Ireland due to Covid. I have sent many emails, spent HOURS on hold. 12 calls just in the last month with no answer, reply or ability to leave a voice message. A month ago a live person answered, she said that she works out of her home and she would get back to me. There is no indication that this call was ever acknowledged nor any actions taken. I am scheduled to leave in a week and I still can't get a hold of anyone at this company. There is no way to cancel on line, I will be resorting to contacting the airline and hotel and car rental directly to see if they will take the cancellation. My friend and I are out over $4,000 by dealing with Aer Lingus Vacation Store.

ACIS is the most attentive and knowledgeable travel company I have ever worked with. I'm a Spanish teacher who enjoys travelling with students and their families, and I wouldn't go with any other company. Many of my colleagues have said the same. Unlike some other travel companies, ACIS takes care of every detail of your trip from start to finish, and I've always been pleased with the tour managers, tour guides, hotels, bus drivers, food, . . . really everything. They also worked with every traveller who had to cancel during Covid to ensure that families received all of their money back. ACIS is truly the best company to use when traveling with students.
