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.

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.

I have been leading groups with ACIS since the 1980’s. Each year I have been amazed by how the company uses group leader suggestions to improve experiences. They have been able to optimize each tour so as to hit every mark. I know it is meaningful since I have many many students and adults travel with me over and over. I have a few that have taken at least 5 trips. After a two year absence from travel, I am now filling a group for 2022. I can’t wait to travel with ACIS again. You have changed my life and my participants lives for ever.
