Incredible Iceland Day 1 #sistertrip2019

I sold many trips to Iceland before I finally got my turn to go, and it couldn’t come soon enough. In March of 2018 while my sister and I were on #sistertrip2018 we decided that #sistertrip2019 would be to Iceland. So we had 17 months to count down and wait for ...

Memories made in New York City

Reviewed By Cindy J. - Rogers, MN | Traveled to New York City ~ New York ~ USA
The points of interest that we had in mind were visited. We had plenty of time at each site and were never rushed. A learning experience to take the subways and buses and by the end of the week we were doing them on our own!! Never had any worries that Katie had it all handled. The detailed itinerary was excellent!

Biking in Barcelona

Reviewed By Hannah B. - Moundsview, MN | Traveled to Barcelona ~ Spain ~ Europe
Katie was helpful in finding a hotel, which was a big stress for us. Her suggestions of a variety of activities gave us plenty to pick from. The hotel was perfect. It was nice having breakfast included and it was close enough that we could walk to a lot of places. The bike tour was a blast. It was a great way to see the city. I would recommend it to other people going to Barcelona.

Memorable Mexico

Extremely easy to work with and we were provided with great options at every turn. I felt like I could choose to pay more for certain services but nothing was pushed on me. My friend chose the travel agency and I haven't previously worked with one, but wouldn't want to plan a trip on my own again.

Thanks so much for your business; I'm thrilled you ladies enjoyed your time in Cancun!

Flawless multi-generation trip!

Reviewed By Bonnie B - Andover, MN | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Katie was awesome and great working with as we planned this family vacation. I never would have known what to do and when to do it, what my options were and when I had to pay and how much I owed. I knew she was on top of things and I just emailed or texted her if I had a question. I would definitely use Bucket List Travel to help plan any other trips we may do as a family or just for my husband and I.

Family Disney Trip

Reviewed By Jenny - Eden Prairie, MN | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Katie was awesome to work with! After checking in to our hotel we realized that she booked us the absolute best room at Disney's Contemporary Resort. We had zero issues with our entire itinerary despite the multiple moving parts and risk for error. She was also invaluable with her advice since this was our first Disney trip. We had a lot of questions and she answered all of them promptly and professionally. I highly recommend Katie and Bucket List Travel. If you want a smooth, stress-free vacation, Katie is the one to call!

A flawless couples getaway

Reviewed By Karen R. - Highwood, IL | Traveled to Zion National Park ~ Utah ~ USA
Katie orchestrated the perfect getaway for my husband & I this spring. We were looking for a resort in the states with beautiful hikes, delicious healthy food, pool & spa services. She found a gorgeous resort in Utah driving distance from Vegas. She thought of everything and jumped in when our travel plans changed last minute due to a family emergency. One strong recommendation I have is when Katie recommends travel insurance sign up as it is so worth it for that one time you need it.

I'm so glad that you and Jeff had a great time in beautiful St. George! I appreciate your business, trust, and loyalty.

Black Hills Road Trip

Reviewed By Colette - Minnetonka, MN | Traveled to Black Hills ~ South Dakota ~ USA
We did all the "normal" things people do when they're in the Black Hills: Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Needles Highway, Wildlife Highway, Sturgis, Wall Drug, Deadwood, etc. Obviously, most of these places are very commercialized, but, a few definitely worth seeing. I'm glad we had an "agenda" so we didn't miss any of the good stuff!

It was SO easy working with Katie on ALL the plans, etc. No matter what a pain I could be, she was on top of everything! If we go anywhere else, we definitely will be going through Bucket List!

I enjoyed putting this trip together! Where to next??
