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.
