Bucket list vacations with Black Tomato

Start planning


Made to be filled. Made to be emptied.

Bucket lists are about the big stuff, the daydreams, the “I’ve always wanted to do that” things. And while all trips are important, these are the ones that you obsess and fantasise about. They’re years in the dreaming, and they’re yours for the taking.

And this is what we’re all about, helping people to fill their bucket lists – and then empty them (or tick them off, it’s a flexible metaphor). With years of expertise and experience under our belts, we know more than a thing or two about making a trip truly count. We don’t believe in cookie-cutter experiences or listicles. We don’t do ‘off the shelf’. No. Our trips are about the trips of a lifetime. Making them happen. Making them real.

When you get in touch, we’ll work together to fill your bucket list up. Taking the time to plan around your season, budget, timings, age(s), destinations, and any number of other factors and variables. These might be for today, but they might also be for next year – or far into the future. It’s your list, and we’re here to help you achieve it.

What is a bucket list trip?


The space between dream and reality

Bucket list trips are the journeys you’ve always dreamed of – with challenges tackled and curiosities encountered. People often talk about them as the ‘trips of a lifetime’, the things you’d simply kick yourself for missing.


From singular moments to sprawling experiences

But a bucket list doesn’t just need to be filled with vast odysseys (like an antiquity-hopping expedition down the Nile). It might be a singular experience or moment that we can slot into a summer escape or festive getaway. Eating at the world’s best restaurant. Whale-spotting in Iceland. Seeing the Northern Lights.

For now, or for the future

Like a notebook of ideas and daydreams, your bucket list might take years or decades to tick off. And that’s great. We’ll help you to add things and we’ll help you to make them happen. There’s no rush.

How does it all work?

Choosing your ultimate bucket list of experiences or moments is no easy feat. Neither is finding the time to do them. That’s where our bucket list service comes in.

The adventure of a lifetime

I cannot recommend Black Tomato enough; for their wealth of knowledge, speed, and ability to curate something entirely special. Nothing was too difficult for them and everything ran smoothly. I couldn’t be happier.


Like nothing else

Black Tomato is the epitome of bespoke. Not only will your trip be 100% curated to you, you will never have a team more invested and caring about you as a person. My Get Lost trip was wild, beautiful, special, and challenging in all the ways I was hoping.


You don't have to deal with the hassle

Black Tomato helped us with our first big trip since the pandemic started, and it also happened to be our honeymoon. They were very responsive, helped coordinate all the details and made it a wonderful experience. Definitely recommend if you’re planning a big trip and want help with the logistics so you don’t have to deal with the hassle.
