Founded in 1958, Cambridge-based ACE Cultural Tours (including ACE Study Tours and ACE Cultural Cruises) is one of the country's most experienced operator of cultural travel. Every year ACE pioneers over 200 escorted programmes, from one-day courses to extended study tours and cultural cruises, covering every aspect of the arts as well as architecture, archaeology, history and the natural world. ACE's tours and cruises inform, educate and entertain in equal measure with a blend of cultural sight-seeing, privileged visits and explanatory talks - all under the guidance of a stimulating lecturer. As well as designing tailor-made tours for Cambridge alumni, ACE also works with a number of other private clients, including English Heritage, NADFAS and and the Friends of the Fitzwilliam.
ACE tours may include non-alumni of the University within their groups. However, with their educational and cultural focus, it is anticipated that ACE groups will be populated by suitably like-minded travellers.
