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

Yeah so like many people I was going to France when the pandemic hit. The trip was canceled only got half of the money back. When we went to look at the insurance and contract information which was online; it could no longer be found. They closed our account before we had made a decision which means we had no access to any information including billing... we had no access to the money we payed. There first offer gave most students no money back... for a $5000 trip $1000 is not enough. I saved up my own money and I felt hurt it was all going to waste because they didn’t want to give peoples there money. They gave us low ball offers and tried to push us roll over the trip with the school. The problem was this was most students senior year and they would not be at the school anymore. I know a lot of people where excited for this trip and devastated that we could not go. But the refunds they tried giving ruined mine and my friends love for traveling. They really were not willing to work with us and made a uncertain time even more bleak. I would never travel with this company nor let anyone I know travel with them.

My daughter’s France trip was cancelled due to COVID. Told we could roll over to a new trip in 2021. My daughter is not comfortable traveling nor do we as her parents feel it will be safe so we cancelled. We were told $650 of the almost $4,000 paid was non refundable. We were told this was due to the many expenses they already incurred. Maybe ACIS needs to rethink their business plan or at least it seems like they are the ones that need insurance to cover these expenses they said they incurred and weren’t refunded. Instead they are keeping the money of many hard working families. Money paid for an experience our children NEVER received. So sorry I ever agreed to this trip and will NEVER consider another tour from this company for any of my children. These companies should not be allowed to practice business in this manner. Shameful.

When I signed my daughter up to go to France (in 2021) I was told that I would get a full refund as long as the trip was cancelled before 65 days prior to the departure date. With everything that has happened with the pandemic, it just isn’t feasible for my family to spend this amount of money.

Acis has responded that the cancellation fee is $350, AND it would only be a travel voucher for another date. (From the acis site- Given the uncertainties that may exist around international travel in the year ahead, we’re making an exception to our standard cancellation policies. We’ve extended our most generous cancellation/refund amounts that are usually in place until 130 days before departure all the way until 65 days before departure.“

Guess we won’t use this system again.

Please ask yourself why a bunch of recent four star reviews just happened to show up on the site all at the same time. This appears to be the result of a coordinated effort to manipulate what is being seen on the site and to push back bad reviews from those that had horrendous experiences with ACIS.

  • Meals 5.0

ACIS is an amazing student travel company. We have used them for about 10 years and have never had a negative experience. They go to great lengths to make sure our students have a great experience. They are easy to work with and know how to plan a trip that holds each student's interest.

The ACIS representative that works with us (Jill) is AMAZING. She makes the trip planning (which could be an intimidating, tedious process) into something fun. In fact, I actually look forward to planning with her.

In March 2020, when we were on one of their student trips to Europe, travel was shut down and they managed the very complicated and tense situation perfectly. They juggled complex travel arrangements and connections for us and ushered us back to America quickly and safely. While doing that, they also made efforts to maintaining as much of the trip as possible so our students continued to get great experiences even as plans were being made to bring them back to the U.S.

ACIS might not be the cheapest student travel company, but you definitely get what you pay for...hotels close to the city centers (so you don't spend your precious trip hours commuting through traffic), very cool cultural experiences that are a great change of pace from all the major tourist attractions you see, and tour leaders who thoroughly know the countries you're visiting AND know how to hold a student's attention.

I can't recommend ACIS strongly enough!

My students, another teacher, and I took a trip to Spain and France that started at the end of Feb. and went through the first week in March around the time Covid 19 was just beginning to become a news topic. We were very lucky that everything went beautifully and ACIS handled it all very well. It ended up being one of the greatest trips ever, especially in Paris because many people were staying home and the crowds in Versailles and the Louvre were so small that we were able to easily do both in record time on the same day. We got a wonderful picture of our group in the hall of mirrors with just our group in the room! Our hotels were wonderful and so was all the food as usual. All of the sites we visited were interesting and the kids enjoyed enough free time to explore and shop everywhere we went. Our guide was absolutely the greatest. She worked so hard to make it a good experience for us. I can't wait until we can all get back to traveling the way we want to. ACIS is a great company and I plan to use them again as soon as I can.
