On a recent conference call with our friends at Collette, we were surprised to learn that the tour company has run about 40 departures to the western USA national parks for groups of 15 to 20 since July. Management says that traveling during the pandemic was within Collette’s new wellness protocols. Travelers have adapted well to wearing masks and the tour company has departed by design with half-loads on its regular-sized busses, giving everyone space to spread out. Please give us a call at 804-557-3006 for details. pic of the Grand Canyon courtesy of Collette #iamabucketeer

We welcome the Holy Father to the USA. Last week we brought our tour group to the Vatican to attend the weekly Papal Audience at St Peter’s where we had the privilege of seeing Pope Francis close up and listening to his sermon on the importance of family life.
Next to wheels on luggage, the “skip-the-line” tour maybe the most important breakthrough in Italian vacation travel. Our broad offering of wonderful day and half-day tours for Rome and Florence and elsewhere across Italy gain you special access to the most popular cultural, religious and historical sites and reserve seating for the weekly Papal Audience. Professional English-speaking guides will offer an expert’s perspective of Rome’s archaeological sites such as the Colosseum and the Forum, important religious sites including St. Peter’s Basilica and Sistine Chapel and the most important art collections in Italy such as the Vatican Museum, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Why waste your vacation waiting in long lines? Go Bucket List Travel will be delighted to design your sightseeing schedule to maximize your pleasure and satisfaction.
