Travel in 2021 with ACIS!

Always Evolving, Always Improving

Despite already providing the most high-quality educational tours in the industry, we just can’t help ourselves. Call us nerds, but we’re shooting for that A+. We tinker, adjust and evolve with the times to provide tours that change students’ lives, create global citizens and enhance teachers’ careers.

Headsets Included throughout your tour

While overseas, your ACIS Tour Manager and local guides will provide fascinating, informative and often hilarious commentary. To ensure you don’t miss a second of it and to ease on tour communication, we are now providing all groups traveling to Europe* unlimited access to headsets. So go ahead, check out that piece of art that’s catching your eye, you’ll still hear everything your guide has to say.

*Not applicable for small group tours or tours to Iceland, the Azores or Canary Islands.

Public Transportation is on Us

With ACIS’ centrally located hotels, hopping on public transportation is a breeze. To help you see all you want to see, we’re now covering these costs. You’ll still have your private bus when appropriate, but if you want to go across town in your free time to see a special exhibit, or must visit that gelateria you always went to when you studied abroad—now you can at no extra cost. Save your spending money for snow globes and crêpes.
