The 14 tours, which launch in May, will guide art and travel lovers across the world this summer - from Mexico to Melbourne, Berlin to Barcelona and Champagne to Chicago. However, the first tour to kick off the global schedule will begin much closer to home – with a behind the scenes visit to Tate St Ives for the opening of its summer exhibition.
Other short break options include a Vintage Art tour of Paris and Champange, a Modern Study of Berlin, and a Modern Look at Munch in Oslo. Tours include visits to art galleries with an expert guide, as well as taking in the local sights of the area.
A number of the cultural breaks will also focus on vineyard visits. In the company of Hamish Anderson, Tate's renowned wine buyer, holidaymakers will be able to taste wines from his favourite suppliers to match the best of art and architecture with fine wines.
Tate Travels is the result of a partnership with The Ultimate Travel Company – who are combining their 30 years travel experience with the Tate’s distinctive pack of the best to see and do.
Nick Van Gruisen, Managing Director, The Ultimate Travel Company said: "We are very proud of our exciting new partnership with Tate. Together we have created a unique collection of escorted travel experiences that reflect Tate's aim of promoting the enjoyment and understanding of art. The first of our yearly programme of tours will visit some of the most artistically and culturally stimulating destinations around the world. Each tour blending the traditional with the contemporary, offers wide-ranging benefits such as access to seminal exhibitions, celebrations of regional cuisine and of course, the intimate knowledge of our local experts and curators."
In addition to the tours, the partnership will include an innovative Concierge Service from The Ultimate Travel Company.
