How the Booking Process Works

Get a quotation: We will tailor make an itinerary & quotation.

  1. Provisional booking: Once a 20% deposit is paid we'll get to work securing your tour arrangements. This normally takes up to 5 working days.
  2. Confirmed booking: Once we have confirmed your booking, you can make your travel arrangements, and begin the countdown! In the unlikely event that we cannot confirm your booking (usually due to accommodation availability issues), you would of course be refunded in full.
  3. Travel: We've taken care of everything, so you can just relax, take on your trail, and most importantly have fun. We're here for any support you may need.
  4. Share: Enter our #MacsMoment contest, plus we will send you a link on your return to let you review your trip online.

Our process is designed to enable most of our holidays to be tailor made on a request basis. This gives you ultimate flexibility to start and finish on any date you like, or add extra nights. Usually we have no problems confirming adventures, but the further in advance you can book, it's always better.

Booking Your Travel

We would always ask that after you make a provisional booking online or with our representatives, you wait until you receive your final confirmation email before booking any travel arrangements (such as flights).

We'll get a confirmation to you within 5 working days (but often much quicker). It can take a little longer for us to confirm trips over 13 days, or if your booking is very far in advance, but we'll always keep you informed, and in the vast majority of cases it will usually it will just take a few days. If you have any questions or need an update on your booking, don't hesitate to contact us.

    Each aspect was organised well once the final bookings were made, that is, accommodation, baggage transfer and contacts in Italy for assistance

    Very good service. Just to improve even more, it would be good to have a choice about accommodation. Granted that sometimes there are no options, but if there are, then it would be good to say 'basic' or luxury' to guide the bookers.
  • Anita Mary Simon 18/11/2019
    The directions were outstanding (except for one minor error). The accommodations were superb. Each night was a different experience and really added to the feel of being in old-world Italy with modern conveniences. The baggage was taken care of in an efficient manner. It was always waiting for us at the next stop.

    This was our 4th MacS Adventures trip. Other trips were 5 star experiences. This was disappointing for several reasons. First, Gran Canaria experienced devastating fires a few months ago. As a result, 2 of the original scheduled hikes were not passable. The substitute hikes were very disappointing. We realize that the fires were out of the control of Macs Adventures, we believe they could have provided better alternatives. Additionally the 1st and last accommodation were disappointing. While the facilities were adequate, it was often hard to find any staff to answer questions. Additionally, the dinner at the first accommodation was nearly inedible. On the positive side, the route notes were excellent and the drivers friendly and accommodating. We still are big fans of Macs Adventures, but would not recommend this trip.

    Great holiday, well coordinated and structured and good instructions for self guided walks.

    This was our fourth trip with Macs Adventures and we were very happy with their service and overall attention to detail. We spent 7 days walking in Portugal in the Sintra coastal area. It was challenging in part due to some wet weather. Macs used a Portuguese guiding agency to provide orientation and GPS device to help us navigate the area. Overall the accommodations were very good. We wouldn't hesitate to use Macs again on a walking trip.
  • Alison 16/11/2019
    We stayed in lovely small "hotels" in four villages. The route notes were helpful for all our walks. We also had GPS for backup. On the unscheduled day in Montejaque, we visited the Cueva de la Pileta that was very interesting and well worth the visit. The driver, who was arranged by Macs Adventure, was excellent. He helped with transfers at the start and then the finish of our holiday.

    I'm a long time, multi-year user of Mac's. They are superb, and their service was impeccable. They sort out problems and are incredibly helpful. It was the Camino itself which was not quite as advertised, and here Mac's has to take some responsibility for the way it's presented. Unlike the Camino Frances, the Portuguese Coastal Way is almost entirely urban, with very little sense of being a spiritual journey. Miles of cobblestones, walking through the backs of villages - even the supposed countryside part is never out of sight of houses and civilization. The walk from Baiona to Vigo, 19 1/2 miles, was particularly awful, ending with 4 miles of trundling through a graffiti-laden, ugly modern city. If you want the real thing, walk the Frances, or perhaps try the more historic Portuguese route that doesn't go along the coast. But we love Mac's.

    Wonderful B&Bs, very good guide book and map, efficient luggage service....what more could we ask?
  • Anonymous 13/11/2019
    Macs was fantastic. Well organized and the trip went as advertised. Our route had few options in accommodations, and some were not great, but Macs didn't have alternatives and we were lucky to have the rooms we received (other travelers could not find rooms). This was our 6th Macs Adventure, and we're planning more.

    Well organized and reliable - could have had a more personal touch.

    Well planned, well supported trip
  • Peter Weinman 12/11/2019
    Everything went exactly as planned, no snafus. Very nice accommodations and good walking directions.
  • L.Yanke 12/11/2019
    Very expensive with inferior customer service. We are experienced European hikers and found Macs Adventures to be underwhelming in every area.... we would not recommend them. There are much better hiking tour companies than Macs.
  • Anonymous 12/11/2019
    Awesome trip, great experience, and really responsive team. Would book again.
  • James Elliott 12/11/2019
