ACE Cultural Tours is delighted to launch our 2014 Annual Brochure, introducing more than 50 new cultural tours to worldwide destinations.
We mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War with two new tours, A Journey Through The Great War and Vienna 1914, as well as a special week of events at Stapleford Granary.
Two new European art tours trace the fascinating Route of Caravaggio between Rome, Naples, Sicily and Malta, and examine The Great Spanish Masters: From El Greco to Sorolla in Toledo and Madrid, taking in two exhibitions coinciding with the 400th anniversary of El Greco’s death.
Exciting new far-flung departures include The Secret History of the Mongols, Gujarat: Traditional Crafts and Tribal Communities and Japan in Autumn: Art, Temples and Gardens. We are delighted to reintroduce our spectacular tour exploring the dramatic natural history of New Zealand.
Expanding into new formats, we combine the expertise of two specialists to create a rich programme of Art & Music in St Petersburg, and inaugurate a three part lecture series in partnership with Classic Discovery – Mediaeval to Modern: Six Eras of Classical Music – with musician and broadcaster Sandy Burnett.
