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.

I can't say enough great things about ACIS! I have completed two successful trips with them and they were terrific in terms of planning the trip (our program manager was in constant communication and made sure that the itinerary met our precise needs) and the trip itself. ACIS tour managers are knowledgeable, expert in working with teenagers and are able to pivot on a dime when situations change. Hotels are centrally located, clean and provide a hearty breakfast. Further, the ACIS staff is professional and readily available to accommodate our needs both before and during the trip. I traveled once with another educational tour company and discovered that ACIS is far superior.

My partnership through the years with the ACIS has transformed my professional life as an educator. After creating and developing a seminar on the Holocaust at my school I aspired to take my students to Europe to trace this terrible history and to contemplate its many lessons in a more meaningful way. I had misgivings in reaching out to a travel company to organize such a trip, however, because the course had become personal to me in a way only an educator could understand and I was nervous about turning my work over to travel agents and my students' experience to tour guides. But if I was going to take students overseas I would need expert assistance, and so I called the ACIS to inquire about such a trip. From that first hour long conversation with their program manager, it was clear the ACIS was not merely offering services but more importantly a partnership with desperately needed insight and travel experience. Before we talked about dates, places, and numbers of travelers, Cara wanted to understand what I imagined such an experience could be for my students and how it might impact them for years to come so that she could leverage the considerable expertise of the ACIS to help bring my vision to life. Trusting the ACIS with my work was the best decision I ever made. My ACIS tour manager understands me as a teacher because he's one of the best educators I know. With the world as his classroom, he teaches best by creating an experience that reaches students in that place where truth is kept.

In addition to how they understand the purpose and value of travel, the ACIS is equally revered by me for their professionalism and competence. Ever phone call is returned and email responded to in a timely manner with answers and insights to questions and concerns. The myriad logistics for hotels, restaurants, flights, busses, etc., are meticulously reviewed and appraised multiple times before, during, and after each trip to the point where they are handled so smoothly I simply don't see them. Through the years unforeseen circumstances on my trips have put their competency to the test. One year in Krakow, Poland, after a cancelled flight home due to an early morning fog my anxious students and I were stranded at the airport. All it took was one phone call to the ACIS. They gathered their resources, woke up who they needed to, and worked the problem. In short order we were transferred to another airport, new flight arrangements were made, put up in a hotel airport to rest, and made it home safe and sound into the wide open arms of grateful parents—at no extra cost. Perhaps at no other time has the ACIS been tested more severely as a result of the recent pandemic. Last March only two days before we were set to leave for another trip we had to cancel as the pandemic quickly worsened. Despite finding themselves in uncharted waters, how they have navigated my trips through the last year has been remarkable.

The ACIS continues to inspire me and I hope nothing more than to continue this valued partnership for years to come.

Tried signing my 18 daughter up for high school trip to cancun. Prior to signing up, I talked to an agent on the phone, and reviewed all of the sign-up paywork. AFTER I paid the "non-refundable" deposit I was informed she could not go because she was not 23.
Money should have been refunded if not eligible to go. Tried calling customer service first ....no response.

BOTTOM LINE: Just book directly. Save a lot of money. Not adding any value to the process. This reservation was hotel reservations only which was fully refundable if I had booked directly with hotel.

I have worked with ACIS for many many years (and have also previously traveled with other companies) and I can honestly say that ACIS is truly the best travel company out there. The support given to the group leaders is outstanding, from the earliest stages of planning a trip with fantastic Program Managers, to communications and check-ins during the tour from both your own program manager and those from offices overseas, plus follow-ups after the trip. With ACIS, your ideas and your voice really do matter, and they listen and try to accommodate whatever plans you may want to arrange for your group.

When weather delays or city strikes have ever affected plans, ACIS bends over backwards to make sure that alternative plans are activated so that your group has the best possible experience no matter what. When our return flight was affected because of a commercial airline strike, ACIS arranged for us to travel by train from Paris to London, and arranged an amazing city tour for us including theater tickets to a show of our choice and a fabulous meal at Covent Garden so that we could then fly home on a different airline from a different city without skipping a beat. When luggage was once delayed longer than usual because of major weather issues at the airport, ACIS met us with cash in hand for each of the travelers so that everyone could purchase toiletries and necessary items so that we could carry on a bit longer until our luggage caught up with us.

ACIS tours are educational in ways large and small! We have traveled to Central America, China, Russia, Australia + New Zealand and all over Europe and the UK with ACIS and each trip included a well-balanced itinerary with a trip that included really excellent hotels and restaurants that I would gladly return to if traveling to that destination again. The food is local, fresh, authentic and delicious, and mealtime becomes a cultural event. The points of interest selected on their itineraries are a combination of sites you absolutely must see plus sites you may not have been as familiar with, but are so glad you experienced!!! The tour managers make every effort to weave in stops at local markets, shops, concerts or shows that may be of interest so that you can experience more from each area you visit.

ACIS uses experienced tour managers and guides who not only know the history and culture of each destination, but who also know how to interact well with both students and adults. They are stellar additions to the ACIS team in every corner of the world we have visited, and I have repeat travelers who tell me that the ACIS tour managers and guides are one of the many reasons they continue to return. Experienced, knowledgeable guides make learning fun and fascinating, and we have never been disappointed in all the years we have traveled with this company.

We have an ACIS trip planned for Japan that was postponed because of COVID-19 travel restrictions, and I can’t wait to travel again. They have made very reasonable and flexible reservation arrangements in light of the world’s pandemic, demonstrating once again their ability to pivot and help the traveler as much as possible. It has been my continued experience that ACIS will be there for you when it counts, helping you plan for just about anything that may come up in as stress-free a manner as possible. We have had one awesome trip after another, every single time. This has not been my experience with other travel companies. You get what you pay for…and although ACIS may not be the least expensive travel company, they are truly, truly the best, and you will be SO glad you chose to travel with them!"

ACIS is a true 5-star company

ACIS is a true 5-star company. I have had the pleasure to work with this company for over 25 years. The Boston Team is by far the best educational travel team. I have worked with two other companies and each one yielded a sub-par experience with so many problems and extra-hidden charges. This is never the scenario, from my experiences with ACIS, in fact, the total opposite. As a Group Leader, one does except planning and organizing, but I must say that Tom Heigham, facilitated my trip from start to finish that at times, I felt like I was a participant! Tom is the utmost professional, meticulous and ensures a smooth transition from each leg of the trip. As my last trip left prior to the pandemic last February, Tom and his team were able to defuse a dilema I was experiencing regarding an ill student. Due to my long-standing relationship with ACIS, my student was able to receive a full refund minus the initial deposit. I was extremely grateful for this gesture by ACIS. My Tour Manager in Span, Nil, was excellent and not only provided insightful recommendations for our free time, but also offered to arrange any extra activities for my students. Nil was knowledgeable and an expert in Spanish art, culture and history. I would definetly request Nil for my next trip! However, whomever I would be assigned, would be up to the exemplary standards of ACIS. I would highly recommend ACIS for a new teacher venturing out on a new trip or a returning teacher. I look forward to working with Tom and the Boston Team for my next trip in 2022.

Sincerely,

My first trip with ACIS was in 2019. It was during this trip that I became hooked on ACIS and would always use them as my travel company. That trip was not even with students yet, it was the Group Leaders trip to Barcelona. This company is amazing at putting together incredible experiences and giving us tools to be great group leaders. They are with you every step of the way. I would not travel with any other comapany.
