Unique Travel Programs

For almost 40 years Academy International Travel Service has been creating educational and exciting trips for our clients. As a full-service agency we specialize in unique travel experiences that take our travelers off the tourist track. Many of our tours focus on specific cultures, literary or film locations, and academic interests to name a few. But we do like to have fun.

Highland and Islands
of Scotland

On this 10 day  program we explore some of the vastly different landscapes of Scotlnd. The Highlands with mountains, ancient castles, and Lochs tucked into valleys is the traditional home of  the "Gaels." The Western Isles are mostly unspoilt with waterfalls, sandy beaches, and small seaside villages.
