ACTS uses safe, comfortable, nationally-known hotels. Our staff has visited the hotels we use to make sure they meet our personal guidelines. We try to make sure your group is all housed on the same floor, and we provide nighttime security to help keep our floors quiet and safe. Remember, your itinerary is jam-packed busy and in reality you will be spending very little time at your hotel. Even so, we try to make sure it is nice and comfortable.
Almost every ACTS package will include breakfast and dinner. Our breakfasts are a full breakfast. They include eggs, meats, fruits, and assorted breads/cereals/and pastries. Our dinners are usually served buffet-style. This provides a lot of options and eliminates a long wait. Sometimes you may have special meals that are more related to your location - like a tavern dinner in Colonial Williamsburg, or an Amish-style meal in Pennsylvania's Amish Country. The meals are warm, tasty, and plentiful.
Usually lunches are on your own. Your ACTS tour will stop at locations that have a wide variety of options and prices. Your ACTS EPL will have suggestions of places you can try in different areas. Be adventurous!
ACTS Education Program Leader (EPL)
Your ACTS Education Program Leader has been selected for their personality, knowledge, and expertise. They will be with your group the entire program. They are fun people who love history and love sharing it at the destinations they will visit with you! They have fun insight to the places you are exploring and can share tips and knowledge with you. Just ask them! They will be handling all the details of the trip such as checking your group in and out of hotels, restaurants, and attractions, as well as providing you with dialogue and narrative about the places you are visiting.
Your EPL also has a love for God and is excited to share with you how God worked in the formation and the history of our country. They will also talk about how God is working in lives today and how He wants to use you to be a world changer for His kingdom.
