Tour Directors

Our tours are led throughout by experts – both specialists in their fields and convivial hosts. Every year ACE welcomes a select band of new Tour Directors to its portfolio.

ACE’s specialists are hugely popular with our travellers. They range from classical musician and broadcaster Sandy Burnett, to soldier turned academic John Greenacre.
