Itinerary

This itinerary is the starting point for your tour, but it’s not set in stone. If there are days you would like to change, or specific places you’d like to go, we can work with you to create a personalized program that fits the needs of you and your students.

Day 1: Overnight Flight

Depart from the USA.

Day 2: Paris

Your ACIS Tour Manager greets you with a Bienvenue! Begin to explore Paris, known as the “City of Light” for its role as a center of education and culture during the Enlightenment.

Day 3: Paris

Morning sightseeing shows you the city's most impressive monuments, from the magnificent Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower to the massive Les Invalides to the Gothic wonder of Notre Dame. Later, breeze by the crowds with your timed entrance to the Louvre and discover the many famous masterpieces that call it home. Insightful commentary from your local guide highlights the Mona Lisa, Winged Victory, Venus de Milo and more as you wander through the galleries. From its beginnings as a royal fortress to its current status as the world's most visited art museum, the Louvre has long been at the center of Parisian culture and home to a collection of 35,000 works of art from around the world. The rest of the day is free to perhaps visit the Centre Pompidou or the Rodin Museum. In the evening, see the city from a totally different perspective during a boat cruise on the Seine.

Day 4: Strasbourg

Depart Paris and travel east to Reims for a walking tour that includes a visit to the incredible Cathedral, where French kings were once crowned. You will get a sense for life in a thriving French village packed with café-lined squares, busy boulevards and a beautiful center. Then continue to Strasbourg, seat of the European Parliament and the cultural center of France's Alsace region, in time for in time to enjoy an authentic Alsatian dinner.

Day 5: Engelberg

Drive south into Switzerland and stop in Lucerne for a walking tour of the town. Take in the Altstadt (Old Town), Lion Monument and famous Chapel Bridge. Later continue to the charming Alpine resort village of Engelberg in time for dinner.

Day 6: Engelberg

Conquer the Alps today. This morning ascend 7,000 feet by cable car and the world's steepest cog railway to the breathtaking heights of Mount Pilatus. In the afternoon enjoy time at your own pace to take in more of the stunning mountain sights and scenery that surround this region. Later in the evening, travel up into the Alps again for a special Alpine Hut dinner along with traditional Swiss games and activities.

Day 7: Munich

Drive to Vaduz, capital of tiny Liechtenstein, for a visit. Then continue to Neuschwanstein, mad King Ludwig's fairy tale fortress that is the stuff of legends. The famous castle, with its many turrets and towers, was opened to the public in 1886 and clings to the top of the surrounding cliffs. You may want to linger in this magical place, but Munich, the capital of Bavaria, beckons this evening.

Day 8: Munich

In the morning, we learn more about Munich with an expertly guided sightseeing tour to take in sights like Marienplatz with its famed Glockenspiel, the bustle of the Viktualienmarkt food and flower market and the surfers on the Isar River in the Englischer Garten. In the afternoon, we head to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial. This former prison camp was technically not one of the “death camps” but is still a vivid reminder of Nazi atrocities during World War II.

Day 9: Departure

Depart for the USA.
