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.

My daughter had planned to join a HS trip to Germany this summer and it was canceled due to COVID-19. These are difficult times and I am sure this company is dealing with quite a few issues. I had the insurance and was promptly refunded all money including funds that were to added back to a cancelled credit card. I was pleasantly surprised not to have to call and email the company to get refunded.

Booked a 5 day self drive with Authentic Vacations (A.V.) last year. Agent pushed the insurance saying it would cover us if anything arose forcing us to cancel. Fast forward to this year and Covid-19, First agent laid off and we were assigned another agent that we had no relationship with. The EU is closing their boarders to travelers from the US. We called to cancel our trip and found out that A.V. will hold back 20% of the land cost and we also lose out on the $509 travel insurance. What is the purpose of paying for insurance if they don't provide any service. Recommend you find a local travel agent who will better serve their customers.

Unbelievable company! We paid $4117 for our high school daughter to join a high school class trip to Germany on April 2. COVID hit &international flights were cancelled. This made it legally impossible to travel, hence force majeure. Instead of being noble during a pandemic, they decided to pocket $1,000.

Below is the transcript of an online chat. I asked for a call to explain in detail what these fees are being applied towards. They declined to take a call.

If anyone else experienced the same and cares to pursue ACIS, I will post the details online through a watchdog Facebook page "ACIS is a Ripoff." I intend to organize a class action lawsuit due to the lack of transparency for charging these penalties.

FROM ACISTravelerSupport5

You paid $4117 toward the cost of the trip. Since the original trip was scheduled for April 2020 and you only had Basic insurance, the refund will $650 cash penalty, and you will also receive a $350 ACIS/AIFS voucher. Your cash refund will be $3117 and the $350 in the voucher.

Our standard Terms & Conditions include a force majeure clause that says we aren’t responsible for loss or delay due to events like sickness, quarantine or government restrictions that are out of our control, and that in those circumstances our standard refund policies apply.

Response to Laura Smart's reply - Please itemize exactly how the cancellation fees were applied to cover your costs. Legally, there can not be penalties. Fees must be applied towards covering liquidated damages after best efforts were made to mitigate the losses. We would like to see an itemized breakdown. The airlines and hotels have all maintained very flexible cancellation policies whereas your is gauging student travelers by taking 25% of our money without nay back-up whatsoever. We need transparency with how this money s being applied. Reporting you to the Federal Trade Commission for deceptive practices.

I was a group leader on a European trip which was scheduled for Spring Break, right in the middle of the uncertainty of the outbreak, but before shutdowns in the US. It was stressful, we were watching the news everyday, and parents were emailing all the time, but ACIS kept in touch almost daily about our travel plans leading up to departure. As various countries were closed they gave us options to reschedule, cancel, or reroute. When we decided to reroute to a safer destination, they were so responsive and helpful in getting a new trip set up. We got new hotels (Even nicer than our original ones!), and a full time tour guide to travel with us plus the tour manager. When a site we had planned to visit was closed to visitors midway through our trip, ACIS called and gave us three new options and made our choice happen. When we had trouble with our flights getting back home because of airlines cancelling flights, ACIS was able to get us on a new airline and we got home the same time as planned. When a few of our students decided they weren't comfortable going on the trip, they cancelled and got the full refund.

I really can't say enough good things. As a group leader, I so appreciated the support in making decisions and making the trip smooth, fun, and memorable for the students. So many of them kept telling me throughout the trip how happy they were to have been able to do this despite the uncertainty and difficulties.

Don't use ACIS, their customer service is horrible. They hide behind the COVID 19, and will not speak to you in person. I requested multiple times to speak to a real person. The only person who did actually call me back was Jon Linker and he forwarded my emails to Laura Smart and requested she call me. Never got a call from her, got an email. She told me to be patient, it has been over a month since I received most, but not all of the money that I was supposed to receive.
ACIS could have avoided aggrevation to both myself and them if they had just picked up the phone. I would strongly advise everyone to avoid travel with this company.. Wish i could have given them a 0!
