Travel Pursuits 2020-2021

Check back soon for full information on our 2021 trips!

Travel Pursuits take you through space and time to literary destinations like Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Colombia, Flannery O’Connor’s Savannah, and the Belle Epoque Paris of Delacroix and Degas. By exploring the particular visions of writers and artists in the location in which their works were created, discover the timeless truths that make their works so compelling.

We believe that people are curious to learn about the world and about themselves. We also believe that many cultural 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. With Classical Pursuits, you’ll actively involve our hearts and minds; be challenged to consider new possibilities; be delighted and even changed.

Group at tableAt Classical Pursuits, we opt for depth over breadth in our travel. Our 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.
