Hand-picked accommodation & reliable services
Hand-picked accommodation of character is what makes our holidays so special and your experience unique. We search out the very best bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, family run hotels, castles, country inns, boutique hotels and hidden gems that are best suited to your individual needs. Each is different but all are well located, offer a warm welcome and will certainly make you feel right at home regardless of how muddy or sweaty you might be.
We work with the very best baggage, taxi, bike hire and excursion suppliers so that you can relax in the knowledge that your bags will be waiting for you at your hotel each night, your taxi transfer will be waiting for you as promised and your excursion will run as planned.
Our excellent and long established relationships with our accommodation and service partners mean that we can negotiate excellent rates for you and as our clients you will be especially well looked after.
Peace of mind and 100% Financial Protection
You can of course choose to book your trip directly but booking with us will ensure complete peace of mind. We carefully plan and regularly check our routes and itineraries so you know just what to expect each day and all are graded by both activity level and comfort so there won’t be any unexpected surprises.
Your safety is at the heart of everything we do and our Adventure Safe programme includes accommodation, transport, activity and safety audits, crisis management and a proactive safety management programme to ensure that the time you spend with us is safe, healthy and happy. In the event that something doesn’t go exactly to plan you can relax in the knowledge that you can call on our local representatives and UK office 24/7 to sort things out.
As a registered tour operator based in the UK we are regulated by the stringent "Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992". Amongst other benefits this means that all our clients benefit from 100% financial protection and in the unlikely event of our insolvency are fully protected for the initial deposit and subsequently the balance of all monies paid to us.
10 Years of delivering adventure excellence and privately owned and operated
Macs Adventure was founded in 2003 by Neil Lapping, our Chief Adventure Officer, and 2013 marks our tenth year of delivering adventure excellence. Our story has been challenging, exciting and great fun and we are certainly looking forward to the next ten years.
Unlike most of our competitors who are owned by giant travel conglomerates we are still privately owned and managed by Neil. We may be biased but do believe that there is something to be said for choosing an owner managed company where the passion for delighting customers still burns as fiercely as ever.
Great value and unbeatable service
We are completely focused on offering great value tours and we don’t offer holidays which we wouldn’t sell to our family or friends, many of whom are our customers and fiercest critics. Our long established relationships and buying power enable us to offer very competitive prices and great value to you, our customers.
Service that goes above and beyond expectations is why so many of our customers choose to travel with us year after year and 99% would recommend us to a friend.
We sincerely hope to welcome you on one of our holidays soon and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or would just like a chat about your next adventure.
