Here at ACE Cultural Tours, we are owned by a parent charity (The ACE Foundation) with a commitment to promoting cultural understanding through education, and the entire surplus from our tours goes to support different projects in the UK and around the world.
For many years, ACE (The Association for Cultural Exchange) has been involved with Fauna & Flora International (FFI), whose focus on securing sustainable conservation through local education reflects our own values and mission. The ACE Foundation has supported FFI projects as far afield as Cambodia, South Africa, and Romania since 1997, and we are now delighted to be extending our partnership with FFI on a brand new series of tours.
Join us in Cambridge later this year, on a short tour to celebrate our partnership and tie in with FFI’s Annual General Meeting in September. ACE Tour Director Roland Randall will lead our exploration of the city’s fascinating botanical history, and we also enjoy behind the scenes visits and special content from guest lecturers and FFI staff.

A very Happy New Year to all of our travellers! We hope that you enjoyed a wonderful festive season, and are looking forward to plenty of cultural exploration in 2016. If you are already itching for your next getaway, join us to explore some of our favourite treasures of Italian art, architecture and archaeology. Due to popular demand we are delighted to announce new dates for our Ravenna and Aquileia tours with Andrew Wilson, whilst Christopher Wellington uncovers the architecture of Umbria and Liguria, and Peter Higginson surveys the wonderful villas and gardens of Lazio.
