Here at The Bucket List Company, we are happiest when our customers are happy. Your holiday should run smoothly, be safe, and above all you should come back keen to book another adventure with us. We aren’t fond of rules (let’s be honest, who is?) but we do think that it’s worth setting expectations in advance so that everyone knows what to expect.
Travelling in a group means that everyone’s needs have to be catered for. Your pack leader will have lots of people to keep happy. Be mindful that everyone will want to do different things and go with the flow.
You can use it how you want. Your leaders will have admin to do during this time so (other than organised trips) be mindful that they won’t be available during the free time to entertain you. They will be happy to suggest some activities for you to do though, so be sure to ask them for their recommendations, and check on the app for some of their favourite restaurants, bars etc.
Sometimes (especially in some of the countries we visit) things go wrong. Flights can be delayed, the weather can affect outside activities, baggage can be lost, and itineraries can need to be changed. Learn to embrace the things that go wrong. It always works out in the end. Trust your leader. They have done this many many many times before!
Our trips are often booked by people travelling alone who choose to share a room to keep costs lower. If you want your own room, you can request a single room on any of our tours which will attract a single supplement. If you don’t choose this option, you will be paired with someone of the same gender. We do our best to match people with someone a similar age. If you want your own room, be sure to let us know when booking.
Sometimes on a group trip you might fancy your own time out to do your own thing. Just let your group leader know if you won’t be joining in one of the activities or if you will be doing your own thing one day.
Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say:
“This has been the first time I’ve used this travel company. I would like to say it has been a fabulous experience , the staff are both friendly and knowledgeable. The whole trip was well planned, but their was scope to change the itinerary at the last minute to include other travel arrangements and visits. Nothing was to much trouble. I would definitely use this company again and would be more than happy to recommend it to my friends. Thanks for a great holiday.”
“We recently returned from a fantastic Scuba Diving trip in Gozo, This was our first time using The Bucket List company and we were really impressed with everything from booking the trip to the return flights home, it was all so easy with no stress. Everything was perfectly organised, the group – 18 of us, got on really well and the trip leader, Keith, was a great host. We’re already planning our next trip with The Bucket List Company.”
“Everest base camp 03/19. Easy booking system, monthly payment option- perfect. Always pleasant, knowledgeable, happy to help/ chat if any queries on phone, email, social media. Straight forward contact with lead guys Keith & Jake from airport and throughout trip. Made it so easy to simply turn up to all overnight stays, tours etc. Appear to have established good contacts/ company in Nepal. Everything ran smoothly throughout, no issue, would book with the bucket list company again.”
“I’ve been on two trips now with the bucket List Company, first to Peru and second to Nepal, both magical experiences.
If you’re looking for an adventure holiday I can’t recommend The Bucket List Company enough, they’ll ensure you have everything you need and are prepared before you go on any of their trips, as Keith and his crew have a wealth of knowledge and experience in making sure their customers have an enjoyable and unforgettable experience.
I’m looking forward to more trips with them in the future!”
“Kilimanjaro – the highest mountain in Africa! The whole experience from start to finish was first class. Amazing people – organising the flights, hotels and food! Would highly recommend to anyone, and I have now booked Everest Base Camp for October 2019.”
“You’ve booked your trip, and the excitement begins. You’ve packed your kit and checked your timings. Your adventure starts here… you explore the towns. With snakes? Never fear, you’re in good hands.
The trek can be tough, but it’s what you signed up for. You can’t get enough, though – there’s so much to explore, from the scorching hot sun, to the freezing deep snow. In the high atlas mountains, it’s all go, go go!
So away we all flew, but what was ahead? #WhatWouldKeithDo? “Just book another”, he said! At the end of it all, don’t be sad it’s all over – you have new friends to call, and it will soon be time for another adventure!
Thanks for looking after us on our amazing trip. We have some fantastic memories and loved every bit!”
