This is a great trip round the varied landscapes of Provence. The route has been well thought out, taking you through some stunning landscapes and beautiful villages. The directions provided were really detailed and mostly easy to follow. The accommodation was all ok but the hotel Charembeau was by far the best, and one of the nicest places you could ever wish to stay.
Getting to the top of Mont Ventoux!

Not applicable as self guide

Great trip , great route- very hot in July when we went so lots of drinks required but still manageable. If you can speak a bit of French that helps. The route is quite undulating - do try and get to the top of both Montagne de Lure and Mont Ventoux if you can - it's worth it when you get there. The Mont Ventoux Rose is very drinkable!

Would happily do it again!

London & Paris with Normandy

We went to London, Paris, and Rome in September, 2015 with this company. Our Tour Captains were Ryane Moates and Mark Story; and they made our trip such a wonderful experience that I know we will take future tours with them again. I love the fact that this company deals with small groups of travelers. I highly recommend Story - Land & Sea by Queenslander for your next vacation!! Read more

Paris to Madrid

The trip was very well planned. We visited cities, large towns and small villages which was a great mix of culture. There were activities organised if you wanted to participate - a bike ride, a kayak trip and a hike. All these activities were well worth the experience. Our guide also recommended places to eat and we always went on her recommendation and it was always excellent. On arrival in each town the orientation walk is so helpful then the next day you have your bearings when exploring the towns. Lastly our leader was excellent. She was patient, approachable, friendly and humorous. She helped make our trip so wonderful. Read more

Great trip! Loved the small group size and descriptive outline. The small trip size allowed for your voice to be heard on stop recommendations as well. Also an active trip was very fun. September 2015

Loire Valley Cycling

Great tour, well organized. I can't imagine a better way to see the Loire valley than by bike and this tour did an amazing job introducing me to the Loire.

ACIS Company reviews

I loved our ACIS trip. The biggest complaint was the economy seating on the long over night flight. Adults didn't have the availability to upgrade due to the type of seats that were purchased. We also got our seat info. fairly close to the date of departure (30 days) which made it difficult to choose seats. The airline representative said that we should have received our flight info. earlier. Everything else about our trip was exceptional. My only hesitation in booking another trip is not having a guarantee that adults could choose to pay to have seats out of economy. Read more
