The Story of Bucket List Events

Bucket List Events, formerly Ludus Tours, was founded by avid sports fans and world travelers who thought that travel agencies could be better by providing more memorable experiences. In 2003, our founders started the company with the simple intention of showing people a good time.

Born from passions for travel and hospitality, these became the pillars of Bucket List Events. Our experiences in the world of sports and international travel are what sets us apart from the rest, and drive our desire to show our guests an unforgettable experience. A bucket list should be full of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Here at Bucket List Events, our goal is to help you cross several items off that list with great stories to show for it.

In 2013, Bucket List Events became part of the Red Carpet Experiences family. Coupled with technology like ticketing services and bucket list apps, we happily began to provide more extensive and robust travel solutions for our guests.

Today, we’re a team of entrepreneurs; we’re athletes; we’re travelers; we’re professionals; we’re full of energy, drive and ideas…we are all of these things and much, much more. Our passions for travel, sports, and hospitality bleed over into everything we do.

We’ve been humbled to be mentioned in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Frommer’s Travel Guidesthe San Diego Business Journal, USA Today, Fox Newsand more.

Our experience with Bucket List Events was all we hoped for, and the running with the bulls amazing. Pamplona is a fun town food and lodging excellent. Toby and the bucket list team were on top of everything and very knowledgeable. Amazing trip!!!

Our group of 12 people enjoyed a wonderful trip to Oktoberfest in Munich thanks to Bucket List Events! All of the arrangements were wonderful, including the Beer Tent Reservations, the hotel, the supplemental tours and even the welcome dinner on the Festival Grounds. It was the trip we had all hoped for. Our thanks go to the entire Bucket List Events Team!!

We booked a trip with Bucket List Events to Run With the Bulls in 2017. It was the best decision we could have made. Our experience doing the event and being guided by Toby and his team was amazing. They put together a first-rate package that was flawless. They were knowledgeable, accommodating and very friendly. We bonded right away and the fun began! They showed us the town, arranged great meals, and were available whenever we needed them. They were never without ideas and suggestions and took charge to be sure we all had a good time. Our group of ten highly recommends Bucket List Events for the chance to Run With The Bulls!

Brett and Liz K, 2017 Pamplona Clients

Words cannot express what an amazing experience Bucket List Events can provide. Absolutely everything from the communication prior to arrival, up until the end of our stay was absolutely fantastic. The only negative we had for our experience, was that it had to come to an end! I would have absolutely no hesitation to use them again!

Sarah H., 2015 Oktoberfest Client

The Bucket List Event team were hands down the best, funniest, and on-the-ball team I have ever planned anything with! They had our events well planned out, orchestrated on time and thought out. The staff were all so great and made this vacation a memorable one!
