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.

Cara Solle has been extremely helpful navigating this past year and a half as we made decisions regarding the summer 2021 trip. I know we lost some participants, but I am hopeful to gain some more when school resumes in person in the fall for our new departure in summer of 2022.

I have been traveling with ACIS for years now and I love how stress-free each trip is for everyone. I always tell new travelers that all they have to do is show up! I've missed traveling and next summer will actually have THREE trips with them! I cannot wait!

My daughter and I paid for a trip for Europe trip for March 2020 Spring Break Week and due to Covid, it was postponed. March was when it all fell apart in the U.S. with Covid. Fast forward to today, our Europe trip was rescheduled for June 2021 and was cancelled /postponed since Europe is closed till after July? ACIS offered us refund with $1000 in the form of a voucher( enhanced refund policy). I understand the issue of having to reschedule, but why would you give me a voucher. My daughter graduated high school last week? WE can go in 2022 or 2023. Meanwhile you held $8000 for little bit more than a year, kept $2000 for a trip I don't want a voucher I said. They sent me a voucher. Why? The issue is not the cancellations, the issue is their business practices are just wrong. I have requested to speak to a manager, a supervisor but no one has called me. Instead I receive an email with the same beginning line, " I understand your frustration," I am out $2000. Covid is a unique situation and merits an exception. I am so disappointed in how this issue is being handled. I don't doubt that they provide an excellent travel experience however, I feel like ACIS has taken advantage of the situation. I have been victimized.

I have used ACIS for 8 of my nine overseas trips. They have listened to my requests and accommodated me without fail, offered private tour buses for my groups (usually we have about 25 students per group), and we have always had top notch hotels and food offerings at each location we have toured. The tour managers have been super knowledgeable, offered hints and suggestions whenever time permitted adding something in, and have been uniformly FANTASTIC!

Traveling with ACIS combines learning, adventure, and fun. We have had great experiences on all 14 student trips to England, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Japan, and Australia. The tour managers know their way around each destination, teach us about the history and culture of each site, and they know how to have fun with my students. I also love the cultural activities that we do (making pizza, painting ceramics) that give my kids a chance to physically connect with the places we visit. When challenges come up, ACIS has my back. That's why I can't wait for our next trips to Italy and Iceland next year!
