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.

  • The Leaning Tower of Pisa may be Pisa's most iconic image, but the city offers so much more. The Piazza dei Miracoli and Pisa Baptistry are masterpieces in Medieval-Italian architecture

I have been using ACIS since 2014, and they are wonderful. Most recently, I was supposed to travel with a group of students in 2020, but the pandemic changed our plans. ACIS was on top of it, and gave us multiple options to adapt without any money lost. We rolled into a 2021 trip, only to find that our destination country was still closed as we were nearing the departure date. Again, ACIS came through for us, rolling us into an alternate trip that was just as exciting and educational as the one when had planned for, and again, no money was lost. They have really gone above and beyond to navigate the "new normal" and keep students traveling in the safest possible way. This is why I am loyal to ACIS. No matter what stumbling blocks life throws out there, ACIS is always prepared with a fantastic backup plan!

The true test of company's ethical business practices comes when times are tough. Its been tough for the travel industry I realize but the business practices of ACIS are downright appalling.

I have twin daughters both booked on different European trips for last summer. Cancelled due to COVID and extended to this summer which also cancelled.

My one daughter decided in December 2020 to transfer her $200 trip deposit to her sisters trip. They demanded an additional $295 stating that was the minimum they could accept for the other trip. I reluctantly deposited the additional money. 2 months later I had to cancel and they kept $350 of the deposit. So crappy of them to force the deposit of additional funds then keep more than half less than 2 months later. Clearly they are hurting for money but not the way to handle it. its just a money grab.

In addition, when the teacher cancelled the entire trip, they took 30+ days to refund the money and then sent a check made out to my daughter. What a rigmarole to get the check deposited into the rightful account. This company could easily implement refunds via ACH and wouldn't cost them a dime. Although they wouldn't get the float of the funds for which they clearly are banking on. Such a poor business practice. They demand the client provide bank info to pull trip funds but then they send checks for refunds - that's warped !

When asked for their Presidents name and contact info - they refused - multiple times. They kept telling to email the general account and it would directed to the supervisor.
Why would they blatantly refuse to provide such basic info - the President needs to be aware of what's going on.

This company may lead nice trips but their business practices and customer service is sorely lacking.

I have written a similar email to our school board leadership to share my experience which seems to be the experience of many who Ive spoken with as well. Perhaps a new travel partner should be chosen that has a better appreciation for updated cash management and customer service

Our school has traveled with ACIS for over 20 years. We continue to use them because they understand the unique idea of "Educational Travel". They help our students understand the context where history happens and the culture that these places provide. They are professional, they love working with kids and they take care of the details so we can just enjoy and learn. I wouldn't travel with anyone else.

I have been teaching for 31 years and traveling with ACIS for 17. I did try other travel companies but none can even come close to ACIS. From start to finish, they are there to listen and support you. Preplanning is at YOUR leisure and they are prepared to customize trips and make suggestions based on what your participants want. I cannot say enough about the Tour Managers- professional, helpful, knowledgeable, kind and masters of managing. I have been to 8 countries with them and ignited travel fever in 176 participants. Some of them have returned as chaperones after graduating! ACIS treats their teachers well. They keep their programs fresh, cultural and are expanding more and more into sustainable tourism, service learning and leadership tours. I give ACIS an A+.

Have been trying to get in Touch with ACIS regarding postponed travel due to COVID. The company has been unresponsive and I fear they may be ignoring anyone who hasn’t traveled yet or requesting their funds back.
