Tour Manager

Signature Trips

Ten of our best (and that’s saying something!) tour managers took their favorite ACIS itinerary and customized it with their must-include activities. These special trips will be offered on set dates and are open to both groups and individual travelers. Please join us on what are sure to be exceptional adventures. Looking for travel scholarships? We’ve got those too, check them out.

After we arrived back in the United States a student said, ‘There is a Peter-sized hole in my heart.’ That accurately describes how important Peter was to our group!


Libby is AMAZING. She is always energetic and does a fabulous job working with multiple groups. She juggles the itinerary graciously and ALWAYS plans something extra special. Libby is a gem and we love her.


Richard was EXCELLENT! He was always there for us, influencing our trip in a positive and educational way. He introduced us and educated us on anything and everything Dominican. We could not have asked for a better tour manager for our group!


Dimitra was absolutely amazing!! She taught me so much and made this trip an even better experience! I miss her so much already. I will forever remember Dimitra and this trip! I feel like a better person from it.


Sonia is the best of the best. As we traveled throughout our tour and observed other guides, it was clear that Sonia is head and shoulders above the rest. I can’t imagine traveling without her.


Joe was amazing in every aspect. I can’t say enough good things about him. He’s everything you look for in a tour manager: professional, knowledgeable, outgoing, organized, responsive and engaging.


Paul was top notch. He related wonderfully with the students and adults and provided great information. He was watchful of the students but allowed some freedom for them too. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour manager.


It was a joy to travel with Tim! Exceptionally knowledgeable, intelligent, friendly, funny, patient, organized –if we travel again, we hope he will be our tour manager!!!!


A top notch guide. Herson’s presentation is warm and kind and inviting to ask questions. He kept the group on task without being bossy. He is very passionate about the environment and our students learned so much from him. A+++ all the way.


Anna was always willing to do everything possible to make our trip the best it could be. She helped us figure out our free time and would make adjustments throughout the day based on our students’ interests and energy level.
