Cultural Cruises

With a long tradition of running small, specialised cruises, we are pleased to announce the return of some of our most popular charters.
Peter Higginson’s in-depth exploration of the area of Provence between Aigues Mortes and Avignon will be a welcome re-addition to our programme, and we also look forward to revisiting the Douro Valley with Martin Symington, born and raised in the region.
Meanwhile, Andrew Wilson will introduce ACE travellers to the history of the ancient region known as Lycia from a traditional Turkish gulet.
Following the launch of our spectacular Seine River Cruise in 2018, featuring several Tour Directors, we are delighted to announce the first departure of our new Rhône River Cruise in April 2019. Again, this cruise will involve multiple ACE Tour Directors, each bringing their own expertise to an exploration of the history, art, music and landscape of southern France. With a further departure of our Seine cruise also taking place, 2019 will feature our richest offering of cultural cruises yet.
