Schedule a "Familiarization Tour" with American Christian Tours
We invite educators, like you, to see an education program in action on a Familiarization Tour.
Other student tour operators may offer educators the opportunity to go on a trip, but these trips often consist solely of other educators. While this type of tour might be fun, interesting, and informative, it lacks something that American Christian Tours feels is a very important part of the decision-making process -- the students.
We believe that seeing how real students connect and engage at different sites and locations is a great way to see first hand how an Education Program with American Christian Tours will impact the lives of your own students.

SAFETY / SECURITY
American Christian Tours takes safety and security seriously! Some of the steps we take, include:
Our Education Program Leaders have undergone background checks and an extensive interview process and they are licensed and trained. They are with the group 24/7 during the program.
Each program participant is provided with a trip badge that includes emergency contact information that connects to a dedicated on-call team any time of day or night.
American Christian Tours maintains strong vendor relationships and continually evaluates hotels, attractions, and restaurants to ensure high standards are maintained. At hotels, we request that pay-movies are disabled whenever possible.
American Christian Tours screens and regularly audits motorcoach companies to ensure they are in compliance with DOT regulations.
We are committed to the practice of creating itineraries that support Driver Hours of Service laws, which are in place to support safer driving practices.
Each group has dedicated night security (bonded and insured) to monitor hotel hallways throughout the night. This allows for everyone to sleep soundly.
American Christian Tours has procedures in place in order to efficiently address medical incidents that happen while on the road, including having access to on-call medical personnel. Additional American Christian Tours staff is available 24-hours a day should additional support be needed.
CRISIS / EMERGENCY
American Christian Tours follows a detailed Crisis / Emergency Response Plan. The plan was developed using resources recommended by Student Youth Travel Association and National Travel Association, which were supported by the US Department of Homeland Security. This plan is reviewed annually by all staff.
Should weather or other events cause an unforeseen change in plans for the group, American Christian Tours will make alternate plans at no additional cost.
American Christian Tours understands that educators and parents make an important decision when they decide to invest in the opportunity for a student to join an education travel program. It is imperative to know that your hard-earned money is protected and secure.
We are pleased to assure you of our solid financial protection!
It is standard for student tour companies to provide a trust account for client funds; this is usually required by state law.
Most student tour companies offer self-administered trust accounts. The account is administered by, and accessible to, the tour company itself. The risk is that if a company goes out of business, the customers (parents and students) lose money invested into the travel program.
American Christian Tours takes the requirement for a trust account a step further by protecting client funds through an FDIC insured bank trust account, which is administered by an independent firm of Certified Public Accountants (Anderson, Hager & Moe S.C.). Other than the deposit amount, monies are held in trust by the firm, they release major program expenses when due. Funds are held until several days after the completion of the program. This provides great peace of mind to all involved.
