What our Customers Say
Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say:
“We have just had our first experience with The Bucket List Company, and are already planning our second trip! We completed Everest Base Camp in March 2019. If you want an amazing adventure with no stress or worries… this is it!
The attention to detail was excellent at all times. You are looked after from the moment you book your trip until you return to the UK! The guides and porters were amazing – nothing was too much trouble. Thanks to The Bucket List Company, dreams do come true!”

“Just returned from a fabulous trip to China walking (or should I say climbing) the Great Wall! Can’t recommend The Bucket List Company enough – Gareth and Rolando were a complete pleasure to be with. None of us wanted to leave. I’d definitely do it again if there weren’t so many other things I want to do! Can’t wait for my next adventure.”

“Having recently returned from visiting Machu Picchu with The Bucket List Company, I cannot recommend them highly enough! What a life-changing experience! The trip was exceptionally organised and Keith is the best expedition leader out there.
Even when I was struggling with the altitude, my health was closely monitored by the group and I was really well looked after. This will definitely not be my last Bucket List trip. Thank you so much Keith!”

“2013 was the year I decided that I wanted to climb Kilimanjaro. It was going to be the trip of a lifetime, and I wanted to make sure I chose the right company to help me achieve my goal.
I’d had several recommendations from friends, so I contacted Keith and his team. From that moment to my first step on the summit, I could not have asked for a better company to have made my dream come true. Keith and his team provided the highest attention to detail, and there was always someone to pick up the phone during the run up to the trip to answer any questions I had – no matter how silly!
During the expedition, Keith was with us every step of the way, offering encouragement and support through some of the toughest hours of my life! I could not recommend The Bucket List Company enough on my return. Unfortunately, this did not work out so well for me, because in 2015 my sister decided she wanted to undertake the same challenge… with me!
So in September 2015 I summited Africa’s highest peak for the second time – a proud moment. Again, we were supported by The Bucket List Company.
My sister and I are planning more adventures over the next few years, and the flexible payment options that The Bucket List Company offer mean we can turn those dreams into some more fantastic memories to add to our collection. I would never consider another company to organise my expeditions now, and I would happily put my life in their hands. I cannot thank them enough for opening up a world of possibility.”

“Ok, so if you aren’t Wonder Woman or the female version of Edmund Hillary (although we did have our very own Ironwoman – unfortunately not me!) but you fancy a bit of a challenge/adventure, then this is ideal!
This trip will challenge you mentally and physically, but because you make new amazing friends and have such a laugh – along with seeing the vibrancy of Morocco – you soon forget about how much you are struggling. The elation of achievement when you reach the top is phenomenal, and worth every foot step!
Other companies may offer the same trip, but I doubt they give the same level of expertise from the moment you pay your deposit! Everything has been thought of, from the advice about equipment to buy/rent, to the tips for working with our amazing guides and porters.
And then there’s our Bucket list Company rep, Gareth! Gareth, aka Billy Boy Wonder, was the best expedition leader you can ask for. He was always positive, encouraging, smiling and calm, even when there was a drama or something didn’t go according to plan. Oh, and ask him about his belly dancing skills!
I would highly recommend this company, and will be booking another trip! If you have any doubts, don’t! Just book it! You won’t regret it, and will finish the week with a permanent smile, some lovely new friends and priceless memories! Thank you to everyone on our trip. And at last I can say: “Got the t-shirt and wearing it!”

“I have just recently been to the Great Wall of China with The Bucket List Company. What a fantastic experience I had! 10 days of action-packed adventure; wild and restored sections of the wall, lots of walking and exploring, amazing Chinese food, and exploring the sights of Beijing including Tiananmen Square, Summer Place, the Forbidden City and Pearl Market.
Along with crazy culinary delights such as snake and scorpions, the highlight of my holiday was the Gubeikou and Jinshanling sections of the wall. Our Bucket List Guides, along with Charles in Beijing, were a great support to the group, as well as being fun people to spend time with. Thank you to The Bucket List Company for a great holiday and experience.”
