ACFEA

Specialists in choral concert tours

Our contact details

ACFEA Tour Consultants has 65 years of experience creating quality concert tours for performing arts groups throughout the world.  With head offices in London and the USA, and exclusive ACFEA representatives throughout Europe and in South America, South Africa, China, Hong Kong and Australia, we have a truly worldwide network of accomplished musicians and travel experts to open doors to the best venues and performance opportunities for choirs, orchestras and bands.

Why ACFEA?

  • No standard “brochure” or itineraries! All our tours are tailored carefully to each ensemble’s aims, ambitions and – above all – budget
  • Our unique network of ACFEA-exclusive local representatives in destination countries is crucial to find optimum venues and build large audiences.
  • ACFEA is a division of Specialised Travel, the world’s leading provider of travel services to the performing arts. Fully licensed and bonded by IATA, CAA/ATOL and ABTA to give complete financial protection, ACFEA has the buying power to negotiate the best rates directly from suppliers such as airlines 
  • Overtourism: we understand the timeless lure of cities like Venice, Barcelona, Paris and Amsterdam but are equally keen to recommend developing and promoting less-visited destinations with rich musical heritage such as Romania, Bulgaria and Georgia, many of which benefit from being outside the expensive Eurozone
  • Our trained Tour Managers are accomplished musicians and travel experts who understand the special requirements of ensembles on tour
  • As Assured Members of the School Travel Forum, our updated risk assessment procedures include the latest COVID-19 prevention measures and our local representatives work with venues to ensure that our concerts comply with local COVID-19 protocols
  • We have been told that “we turn new clients into old friends”. Do contact us!

What do our clients say?

There was universal agreement that the tour was most enjoyable and the singing inspiring in wonderful venues, and the group gelled together wonderfully. Thank you.

Chandos Solihull Choir, Czech Republic, August 2019

The concerts were well attended, and the audiences were very appreciative. The sign of a good tour is when the participants start discussing where we should go next, on the way home!

Fleet Choral Society, Poland, June 2019

Thank you for help and support with planning our CBSO community choir’s very first tour! I have felt well supported and guided both through the preparation process and whilst on the tour. Our choir members enjoyed the different performance venues and were extremely grateful for the additional sightseeing opportunities. Many commented on the carefully planned itinerary, the balance of concert time and time at leisure allowed members chance to get to know each other better and many have returned pleased that they have made new friends!
