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.

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.

We had a 15 person trip to Oktoberfest this September and the whole trip, end to end was brilliant. All of our party was more than pleased with all aspects - Bucket List Events exceeded our expectations and we are thankful for such a fun and smooth trip!!

"Me and my friend recently booked a trip with Toby and his crew for the running of the bulls and needless to say it was fantastic. Everyone worked so hard to make the trip as easy and fun as possible.  They completely took the guess work out of the whole trip. One of the best trips I ever took and I will be booking my next event with them for sure."

Ian Lueckemeyer, 2018 Pamplona Client

Traveled with my parents, wife, and two oldest boys this year and Bucket List Events did not disappoint. First class service! The Hospitality area and base camp were fantastic. Shuttle to and from the course made it stress free. Wednesday practice round allowed my sons to high five the vast majority of current players and legends of the game. The North Augusta home that was secured for us was nothing short of amazing. I would not hesitate to use Bucket List again and quite certain my family will on other future events.

Toby & co. put together an incredible Pamplona experience for a large group of us. Can’t recommend them enough.

The team at Bucket List Events saved my bacon when my son and I wanted to go to the 2018 Champions League Final in Kiev. The logistics of arranging the tickets, accommodation and ground transport for such an event can be harrowing if ‘going it alone’, to say the least (we tried!). When we found out about Bucket List Events they made it entirely stress-free. The whole package - top-notch seats at the stadium, accommodation in the perfect location, airport transfers and guided tour of the city was brilliant.

Steve Wilkins, 2018 Champions League Client

Our Masters experience was wonderful. Brian and his staff were great and the accommodations superb. A true Bucket List event!

Gary and Lynn Moore, 2018 Masters Client

Loved our Oktoberfest experience with Bucket List events! Our small and large tent reservations were perfect and watching the parade from our hotel window was icing on the cake. Toby and team were excellent hosts - insuring our Oktoberfest time was a ton of fun?
