ACIS is great!
ACIS is an exceptional educational travel company which has served my needs for over 20 trips to France. Whenever I travel with students, I am confident that ACIS will take very good care of us, and I have never been disappointed. I am also thankful that their generous programs have enabled me to travel for free on these trips and have rewarded me when I'm able to bring more students.

I have been on four trips leading…
I have been on four trips leading students with ACIS. On every trip, the logistics are extremely well organized (actually perfect) and everything goes precisely as planned. I would never take a group of students with any other company because I would be a nervous wreck! At this point, I only entrust ACIS with such a crucial undertaking. The hotels are centrally located and very good, the food is delicious and designed for the typical teenager, and the tour managers and bus drivers are always excellent. The activities and itineraries are exactly right. My West Coast Representative, Jeannie Page, did an outstanding job keeping us informed about all the travel changes due to Covid, and I am so grateful to her for being so organized. If it weren’t for Jeannie helping me with these details, I could not do these trips. She answers my emails very quickly and thoroughly. Thank you Jeannie Page and ACIS!

Every step of the way is handled with the utmost professionalism and care. Love, love, love ACIS. I agree with many of my colleagues who have traveled with other companies that there is just no comparison. ACIS is the very best!

The cadillac of travel companies!
In 1987, I took a trip with ACIS as a 16-year-old participant and it opened up my perception of and began my love of travel! I have been traveling with ACIS as a teacher since 1995 and taking students on educational travel experiences has been the absolute best part of teaching! In my 15 trips, I have always been impressed not only with the quality of the hotels, programs, and the knowledge of the tour guides but more importantly with how they handled any issue that came during our trip!

The most amazing trip ever!!!
The most amazing trip ever! I have traveled all over the world with other tour companies, but truly from beginning to end this was simply fabulous, and it all started with Beth, our tour manager. A true professional in every aspect of the word, everything she promised was spot on: Great hotels and their locations, the food, the tours and side trips and also Franz and Miguel. Thanks to the wonderful Acis Team who made this all possible!

About the company


Since 1978 ACIS, the American Council for International Studies, has been a leader in quality educational travel for middle and high school students and their teachers. We believe in the power of travel to open students' eyes and change their lives—and every detail of our educational tours is carefully crafted to help make it happen. We are also committed to being partners in education with the teachers who take our trips, and work hard to help them select and customize trips that fulfill their curriculum objectives. While we offer a range of trip types to fit different budgets and goals, every trip features authentic meals, centrally-located hotels, and our signature Cultural Connections—experiential learning that brings students closer to the people, places and culture. We're also known for the quality of our tour managers: smart, well-traveled individuals hired for their knowledge, enthusiasm and ability to bring history and culture to life.
