A great job in an impossible situation June 2020

I was a group leader on a European trip which was scheduled for Spring Break, right in the middle of the uncertainty of the outbreak, but before shutdowns in the US. It was stressful, we were watching the news everyday, and parents were emailing all the time, but ACIS kept in touch almost daily about our travel plans leading up to departure. As various countries were closed they gave us options to reschedule, cancel, or reroute. When we decided to reroute to a safer destination, they were so responsive and helpful in getting a new trip set up. We got new hotels (Even nicer than our original ones!), and a full time tour guide to travel with us plus the tour manager. When a site we had planned to visit was closed to visitors midway through our trip, ACIS called and gave us three new options and made our choice happen. When we had trouble with our flights getting back home because of airlines cancelling flights, ACIS was able to get us on a new airline and we got home the same time as planned. When a few of our students decided they weren't comfortable going on the trip, they cancelled and got the full refund.

I really can't say enough good things. As a group leader, I so appreciated the support in making decisions and making the trip smooth, fun, and memorable for the students. So many of them kept telling me throughout the trip how happy they were to have been able to do this despite the uncertainty and difficulties.

My son had a trip to France in June. The trip was canceled 130 days prior to departure date. ACIS honored the agreement and a full refund(minus the insurance and 50$ deductible) was issued. Thank you!

ACIS has opened doors for my students to explore Europe. Their experiences have made them global citizens. Additionally, the ACIS trips have helped me develop into a better teacher.

From ACIS

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.
