Update on the Current Travel Situation

The world has come to a temporary ground stop and we are all facing a huge amount of uncertainty, but one clear fact is that we are all in the same boat. We've been working to assist our travellers overseas to return home, then helping our travellers with imminent tours to re-assess their plans. We’ll be reaching out to all our upcoming travellers in the coming weeks to discuss your plans.

Most of our partners around the world are independent hotels, freelance guides, local transport companies, small restaurants, and other independent small businesses. We respect their dedication to our travellers and share their commitment to doing the very best to mitigate the imp...
The world has come to a temporary ground stop and we are all facing a huge amount of uncertainty, but one clear fact is that we are all in the same boat. We've been working to assist our travellers overseas to return home, then helping our travellers with imminent tours to re-assess their plans. We’ll be reaching out to all our upcoming travellers in the coming weeks to discuss your plans.

Most of our partners around the world are independent hotels, freelance guides, local transport companies, small restaurants, and other independent small businesses. We respect their dedication to our travellers and share their commitment to doing the very best to mitigate the impact of these extraordinary circumstances. If your upcoming tour has been interrupted by the current circumstances, you can help by postponing your travels, or if you have claimed a refund from your insurance company, by rebooking your trip. We are working to reschedule as many tours as possible so that you can continue to travel when it is safe to do so.

So, let’s support each other during this period and let’s approach this shared crisis with renewed goodwill. We wish all of you good health as we take care of those around us. We are very grateful for the many messages of support we've received from our travellers. We are part of a fantastic community of people who value the wonder-filled experiences that travel brings us and we look forward to sharing more great travels with you at some point in the future.

Birds of the Galapagos with Justin Peter

The Galapagos Islands are often touted as a laboratory of evolution by natural selection, and some of the archipelago’s birds are among the best-studied organisms anywhere. In this talk illustrated with photographs from his three expeditions there, Justin will help us get acquainted with some of these birds. We’ll see what they look like, how they behave and interact with fellow Galapagos denizens, as well as gain insights into their origins through some of the latest research findings stemming from decades of research.

They Came to Paris, Walk II: "Strolling Into the Modern"

They Came to Paris, Walk II: "Strolling Into the Modern"

Writer, traveller, and long-time parisienne Lisa Pasold leads an hour-long virtual walk into the astonishing early 20th-century changes in the Paris village of Passy, on the Right Bank overlooking the Seine. This is the era of “They Came to Paris”—the early years of the 20th century when many American artists, writers and musicians chose to live and work in Paris because of the artistic and social climate. The western part of the city was newly chic, with radical new architecture and experimental theatre.

We’ll start at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées—a gorgeous Art Deco building where Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring first caused a riot, Josephine Baker launched her life-long love affair with France, and Picasso created radical Cubist theatre sets. From here, we’ll go west and examine the cultural shifts that changed the writer Balzac’s quiet village of Passy into an urban centre of Modernist architecture. We’ll look at the gorgeous work of Auguste Perret—who turned his father’s construction business into an award-winning architectural firm. In fact, in 1910, Le Corbusier was working in Perret’s office. And we’ll walk with Picasso's best friend, Apollinaire, to hear what he wrote about the 1910 floods that swept through his neighbourhood.

Make yourself a café au lait or pour yourself a glass of sparkling wine, and go exploring along the gorgeous bank of the Seine—brought to you virtually via this Classical Pursuits webinar.
