Comfort Levels

Our trips have a variety of comfort ratings, depending on the location or the style of adventure you want. Whatever the level, we carefully select accommodation to ensure you receive a friendly welcome and that your stay is a comfortable, authentic experience.

Most holidays are in the comfortable range, including nights in friendly, independent or family-run hotels, guest houses, or B&Bs. No matter what the type of lodging, it will always be chosen for charm, cleanliness, and those special touches that make you feel at home. Some holidays are graded superior, with a little extra luxury, and some contain more basic accommodation, particularly in more remote locations where mountain refuges or camps may house your bed for the night. 

Where you stay shapes your overall experience, and can leave you with some of the best memories, anything from the best breakfast pastries you've ever had, to an evening in front of the fireplace spent with a convivial host. Rest-assured, we've selected the best-suited accommodation for each night's rest.

Basic

Basic

Accommodations are comfortable and will meet all of your basic needs. These may include Mountain Huts and limited B&B’s. They might be rustic, and an en-suite or private bathroom is not always available. Sometimes located in a remote area, these accommodations could also be shared with other travellers. Whilst they may be more basic in facilities, they are big on welcome. 

Comfortable

Comfortable

Our comfortable accommodations include charming B&B’s and guest houses, as well as small hotels and inns. These are usually family-run and always clean, comfortable and well-located. This is the grade of accommodation you can expect on most trips, and we prioritise a warm welcome when selecting your lodgings. After a day on the trail, we know that you need the peace of mind that your board has been hand-picked for comfort & charm.

Superior

Superior

We use three or four star hotels and luxurious B&B’s to welcome you to our Superior accommodations. Many are renowned for their excellent cuisine and all offer a warm reception to walkers, traditional hospitality and an authentic experience. Holidays might be described as "In Comfort" to let you know that they have a higher specification of overnight accommodation. All the warmth and comfort of our standard lodgings, with a little extra special feel.

Luxury

Luxury

Luxury accommodation comprises carefully chosen 4 star stylish hotels, all ideally located to offer the best service for our walkers and cyclists. We specifically choose each 4 star hotel for the superior view rooms, high levels of service and hospitality, along with the delicious local cuisine on offer. You can view our ‘In Style’ collection of tours, to explore some of our luxury options.

Various

Some trips include a variety of accommodation styles. For instance, whilst on a trek in Nepal, you will stay in traditional mountain lodges in remote areas. Toilets and washing facilities may be shared and you may be in twin-share rooms. However, while in Kathmandu, you can stay at the 5 star hotels opposite the Royal Palace. Or on the Larapinta Trail, you may be in a four star hotel to start your adventure, and remote eco-camps for your trek.

    Overall worked well. Turn by turn instructions were sometimes way off but following the GPS blue line worked well. Lodging was decent but not exemplary.

    I understand the challenges due to Covid but it often took multiple phone calls and emails to receive a response to my inquiries about our Queen Charlotte Track trip and then it would take several weeks to get an answer to my question. I ended up going directly to the company you outsourced to (Wilderness Guides) as they would reply within 24 hours. Also, most of the information provided by Mac’s was wrong! Thank goodness for Wilderness Guides. You should tell your prop,e if they don’t know the answer to a question, don’t guess!

    Overall a good holiday - maps/routes and accommodation were great, but you didn't book all the transfers despite repeated chasing from me and in the end I had to arrange one transfer myself and have multiple phone calls to you from Malta to get the others sorted.

    The accommodations along our route were great! The Portuguese Travel partners were very helpful, knowledgeable and patient. Overall we had a wonderful trip. The only hesitation I have in giving the highest rating is due to the inadequate communication between us. We had a rather complicated booking, in that we were not all traveling together. We did not receive the Macs packet until our last night at the end of the trip upon our return to Porto. Fortunately the Portugal Nature Trails personnel were able to round us up and held a briefing, the apps were installed on devices and instructions given, you kindly altered some travel options, but we were unaware of them until our briefing in Porto, unfortunately no paper schedule was provided and the on-line instructions did not include specifics. Another concern is that the "moderate" rating for the walk. While the distances were not long, the walking and the route were often challenging. All that said, it was beautiful, the people were so kind and friendly, and we are so glad we had this adventure.

    Everything went like clockwork, everything happened when it should have. The accommodation was as good as the location allowed. The backup literature and map were very helpful.
  • Mr Alan Woolf 18/11/2022
    Seamlessly connecting hikers with accommodations, and provision of very detailed maps and en-route landscape descriptions.
  • Ms Sheri Burns 17/11/2022
    I was disappointed with the level of maps, guidance and directions. Many of the trail directions were incorrect and we ended up not following them and needing to find our own way. We also sent an email to Macs on day 3 asking about transportation for day 5, and they never responded. This was different than my first experience with Macs Adventure, as I thought the level of service and directions were above average previously.

    Excellent. Well organized.
  • Mrs Valerie Fernandes 16/11/2022
    Had a brilliant time and could not fault the service we received from Macs. The whole trip went without a hitch and I would not hesitate to recommend Macs. The organisation is perfect and someone is always contactable IF there is a problem
  • Mr William Hasse 16/11/2022
    We plan to travel with Macs again in the near future. Their service has been excellent and we have been in agreement with most of their descriptions of the hikes we have been on. There are a few that were a bit underplayed - that we found to be a bit more arduous than as described. On the other hand s few others led us to expect a more difficult time of it.

    This was our second experience with Mac’s, this time a rail tour of Scotland. They put together a nice package for us at a reasonable price. Very good choices for lodging, for the most part an easy enough walk with rolling luggage from train station. One minor glitch due to a mistake in booking was sorted in less than an hour and a small financial gesture in response to the error was granted which we really appreciate

    Marie from SLO Adventures was extremely helpful; restaurant recommendations were very good; moving our car from Santa Cruz to Monterey worked very well; all accommodations had bay views; bag lunches were best I've had on any previous walk.

    We were very happy with every aspect of the trip and will definitely plan another Mac’s adventure soon!

    Once again a very good experience on our trip. Booking was smooth and all the logistics were as expected. Our rep (Dan) in the US was very helpful. There was a small hiccup with the app and offline maps. Luckily it was on our last day of walking and we still had the turn by turn instructions. Overall the accommodations were very nice.

    Overall excellent but on two occasions I arrived at nominated hotel to be advised it had been changed, breakfast in a number of hotels was at 9.00am which is too late when needing to start that days walk (in particular on one day when I had a 30k walk) plus on a 12k day the hotel room was not available until 4pm when obviously I would arrive much earlier. Whilst I have done a number of excellent Mac’s walks I thought that on this walk they had lost their normal attention to detail.

    Excellent .

    Macs Adventure delivered everything that was promised. The accommodations were excellent, communication was very clear both written and verbal. Mac's rep in Tuscany Beppe, was outstanding in his hospitality and helpfulness. This was a trip of a lifetime for my sister and I and met all our hopes and expectations. Thank you, Macs!!
  • Ms May Cole 15/11/2022
    Anytime I had questions about my trip, the Macs team was ready and willing to help! I was quite nervous about my first trip to the UK but I felt everything was well taken care of.
  • Tori Daniels 15/11/2022
    Macs took care of everything! Accommodations booked, luggage transfer scheduled, everything was seamless. The small inns we stayed in were just charming and the perfect representation of amazing Scottish hospitality! We had our 4-month-old "wee baby" along with us, and Macs was able to help ensure we had accommodations suited for our family. We went in October, which was beautiful with the changing fall colors. It was typical, rainy Scotland but we were prepared with our rain gear and warm layers so it was just fine! The walks were lovely, and just enough challenge. We did all the optional walks along this tour and the views at the end from "Ben-Y-Vrackie" were just spectacular! 10/10 would recommend!
  • Ms Carolyn Webster 15/11/2022
    Excellent customer response on every occasion! Lovely places to stay, brilliant on all counts and would definitely use them again
