Traveling with Us

Travel is the spark
of a brighter future

Travel has the power to change lives and pave the way for success. With ACIS, your child will be immersed in global learning opportunities that will boost independence, fuel curiosity and drive them toward a brighter future. And did we mention they’ll have an incredible time?

I watched my kids lose the fear of trying something they had never tried before. They will never be afraid of the unknown again.”

Jeanne L. Group Leader

A company that truly cares about every person’s experience is just priceless. You can’t put a price on feeling safe, secure and with people in the know when traveling. The more I travel, the more I love ACIS!”

Valerie W. Group Leader

I have had several thank yous from students and parents who said their children will never forget this trip. The first sentence on a card from a student says it all: Dear Madame, I have just had the best eight days of my life…”

The perfect blend of education and travel

Sightseeing and museums are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to educational travel with ACIS. We work with teachers to identify key learning objectives and weave them into the itinerary. We bring culture and history to life through our knowledgeable, enthusiastic Tour Managers. We also introduce students to unique cultural experiences, like French cooking lessons, Spanish bull ranches, Globe Theatre acting workshops and Costa Rican dancing. And that’s just the beginning!

Travel provides students with the skills and experiences they need to succeed. In fact, we surveyed 930 former ACIS travelers and found that:


felt more independent after their trip.


continued their studies in college.


saw an increase in problem-solving skills.


noted better interpersonal skills

Safety is our first priority

You can breathe easy while your child travels with ACIS. Our safety and support infrastructure has been a cornerstone of our business for more than 40 years. Continuous US and overseas support and rigorously trained Tour Managers are just a couple of the reasons so many teachers, administrators and parents trust ACIS.

Safety & Security

Well worth the price

Last year, 93% of ACIS travelers said their trip was a great value. Why? Because our tours maximize your child’s time abroad. We use centrally located hotels, which means less commuting and more sightseeing. We book timed entrances to attractions and plan activities into the evenings. We offer a lot of inclusions, too, like cultural connections and authentic meals, and we uniquely tailor our tours to address the needs of every group.
