In educational travel, every moment matters. Pushing the experience from “good enough” to exceptional is what we do every day. Our mission is to empower educators to introduce their students to the world beyond the classroom and inspire the next generation of global citizens. Travel changes lives.

A TRIP FOR EVERY TEACHER, EVERY VISION. ALL WITH THE SAME HIGH ACIS QUALITY.


  • Exceptional Educational Journeys: Timeless favorites, full of exploration and cultural encounters. All tours include experiential and enriching activities, and the balance of cultural connections, sightseeing and unstructured time varies by itinerary type to allow you to choose the perfect combination for your group.

  • Leadership Projects: Youth and Young Women's Leadership Projects not only inspire, but also actively help students develop the characteristics necessary to be world leaders.

  • STEM-Focused Tours: Bring your science, technology, engineering or math curriculum beyond the classroom and lab with hands-on experiences that connect these topics to the real world.

  • Language Immersion and Homestay Tours: Live with a host family and immerse yourself in their daily customs and language, take language classes at a local institution or weave language lessons into a more traditional tour with a native-speaking tour manager.

  • Service Learning: Service projects range in duration and intensity, but each is designed to provide students the opportunity to actively and positively contribute to the community they are visiting while enhancing their understanding of the world.

  • Small Group Tours: With as few as 15 participants you can lead a private tour and enjoy all the added flexibility that provides.

  • Exchange Plus: Your school exchange plus our travel expertise adds up to an incredible educational experience.

  • Customized Experiences: If you can imagine it, we can do it. Whether you want to design a custom experience from scratch or modify an existing itinerary, we'll create a one-of-a-kind experience that matches your unique vision.



TOUR FEATURES
