ACIS has been leading educational tours to Spain since our founding in 1978. Oftentimes when I explain educational travel to the uninitiated, it’s my second sentence “…you know, like when a Spanish teacher takes her students to Spain for a week over spring break…”. That little sentence doesn’t say much, but the experience can mean everything!
