The Bucket List of Tours
Swim with Dolphins? Skydive? Climb a Mountain? What's on yours?
The concept's fairly simple; what are the experiences and things you have to do before you die? These are non-negotiable; no ifs, no buts, you're doing it. StudentUniverse has great rates on these once in a lifetime tours to help make them more affordable for you, and hopefully help you start making a dent in that (extensive) list.
For example you could take the 65 day Great South American Journey from Quito to Rio and just about everywhere in between. You'll have the opportunity to mingle with locals at a homestay in the Amazon, spot condors at Colca Canyon, travel to Machu Picchu taking the Inca Trail, cross the Uyuni Salt Flats and stand in amazement and gaze at the truly remarkable Iguassu Falls, not to mention the other 50 days of awesomeness.
If you're a bit shorter on time, there are numerous other options available that'll be friendlier on your calendar. Why not take the Canyon Country & Coasts Tour all the way from San Franciso to Las Vegas. In between you'll marvel at one of the most stunning and unique places on earth; the Grand Canyon, hike America's best Western national parks, visit Lake Powell and Monument Valley and finish the trip on the slots in Vegas. For 16 days of unbelievable fun, and the opportunity to tick of a host of bucket list mainstays - this could be your perfect tour.
Or why not put a spin on a traditional favourite and see wild dolphins in their natural habitat; the Irrawaddy River. Not a traditionally well known option, these dolphins were oceanic dolphins that now live in brackish water near costs and river mouths. Bundle this in with the rest of the Cambodia & Laos Mekong Adventure Tour and you're already writing a recipe for an experience of a lifetime. This 15 day tour will take you to prisons, museums, waterfalls and temples all across Asia, returning you back to the original starting point of Bangkok at the end, ready to continue your trip.
Also remember, you can bag a bargain with one of our Last Minute Tour Specials that'll help you get your trip of a lifetime at an even more discounted rate than before. Keep in mind these deals are very limited and will sell quickly, so if the deal's for you, then book it sharp.
