Travel Pursuits 2017–2018

Register Online with Our Partner Worldwide Quest

Travel with Classical Pursuits through both space and time to destinations like Orhan Pamuk’s Istanbul, Thomas Hardy’s Dorset, and the Belle Epoque Paris of Delacroix and Degas. By exploring and celebrating the particular visions of writers and artists in the location in which their works were created, we paradoxically discover the timeless truths that make these works great.

We believe that people are curious and eager to learn about the world at large and about themselves. We also believe that, as with much formal education, many travel experiences end up disappointing because they miss the mark on how we learn.

We have created our trips on our own best learning and travel experiences—those that actively involve our hearts and minds; that challenge us to consider new possibilities; that delight and leave us changed. We do this by opting for depth over breadth in our travel.

Group at tableOur groups are small and intimate. They include singles, couples and groups of friends and family members. Many are repeat travellers. Moderate walking is required unless otherwise stated. Our trips generally include characteristic, comfortable and well-located accommodation, two meals a day, local transportation, admissions, excursions, guided walks, expert talks and gratuities. Our trips offer ground arrangements since many wish to arrive early or extend their stays, or use their airline points to travel.

All Travel Pursuits operate under the umbrella of our partner, Worldwide Quest (TICO Reg: #2667946). Worldwide Quest expertly arranges the logistics for each trip to complement our literary theme. They handle all bookings/registration and set terms and conditions. They are happy to book flights and help with pre- and post-trip arrangements.
