Stats & Facts About the Superheroes of Educational Travel


While a typical tour manager helps ensure your adventure abroad goes smoothly, ACIS tour managers are anything but ordinary.

We like to think of them as the caped crusaders of your tour. In front of you, they're cool, calm and collected. Behind the scenes, they're working overtime to check and double check your dinner reservations, they're preparing educational content for bus rides, and reviewing your day-by-day itinerary to make sure your time overseas is maximized. One minute they're retelling history and the next they're preparing an impromptu picnic.

It's all in a day's work for these storytellers, art and history buffs, and full-time teachers who dedicate their vacation days to traveling around the world with groups for the pure satisfaction of seeing travel through the eyes of spellbound students from the US.

Ooohs and ahhhhs are their currency. Laughter is their official language. And in case you're curious to learn more, here's a few facts about the superheroes of educational travel:

Having traveled with ACIS twelve times now, I can say that I've never had a bad tour manager. It's the main reason I keep traveling with this company. I know that some group leaders have favorite tour managers and request to have them for every trip, but I like to have a different one every time because they all have so much to share.

I so agree! Every year, the students and teachers come back with nothing but praise for the tour managers who seemingly seamlessly show us the wonders of Europe.
