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 marked 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.
- 99% would recommend us to a friend
- 95%+ would go on another Macs Adventure active holiday
What Our Customers Say
Please read our in depth walking & cycling holiday reviews, and here is a selection of loveley comments which we were very grateful to receive:
"Our trip was great and we loved the planned independence of a walking vacation. We aren't big "tour" people, so it was great to have everything planned, but to be on our own. Thanks!"
“Your company is one of the finest companies I ever dealt with....I get the feeling that each of you is a personal exemplar for your company.”
"What helps make our holiday is the confidence we have that we will arrive to good accommodation, or excellent in most cases, and that our suitcases will be waiting for us. Thank you for another lovely holiday, even the weather was kind to us!"
