    "Here is our little group :) on Day 1 in Les Houches.  We all had a splendid experience! 

    The hotel and Refugio’s were impressive, the food high quality and the staff at each location friendly and helpful.  Complements to Macs for your high standards.  The luggage transfers went well.  I know this was an unusually large group and we appreciate your efforts to keep us all together by and large. The TMB scenery is simply spectacular.  I’ve already referred Macs to friend.

  • 5 Tips for Planning the Perfect Group Adventure

    Thinking of traveling with a bigger group? Take our advice. Macs Adventure offers the freedom and flexibility you need to plan the perfect group adventure. Planning a group departure can be stressful so we thought we’d share our top tips on making the process simple, successful and enjoyable.   

    1. Plan Ahead

    Planning your trip at least 6 months in advance offers some major benefits. Finding availability in our best accommodation, purchasing flights the moment you’re ready, and the peace of mind to not having to organize last minute are a few of the huge benefits!

    2. Designate a Lead Booker

    Having a single point person working with our Adventure Specialists goes a long way toward staying organized. The lead booker can distribute documentation and trip information, pass along updates or clarifications and relay the group’s questions.

    3. Be Ready at the Time of Booking 

    Have traveler names and rooming preferences at the time of booking. This ensures we book in the right rooms for the right travelers from the start.

    4. Get to Know the Booking Conditions 

    Macs Adventure provides simple and straightforward Peace of Mind Guarantee. We recommend knowing the key deadlines and we highly recommend some type of travel insurance for trip cancellation.

    5. Flexibility 

    While we do our best to accommodate the entire group in one accommodation, there may be times where larger groups will be split amongst a few inns or hotels.

    Good to Know

    It’s possible to split up payments among individuals, just let your adventure specialist know ahead of time if the group will be paying separately.

    Macsadventure was flexible and informative in navigating the pandemic travel. They communicated frequently and well. We did not receive our physical maps in time for the trip, which would have been very helpful. But the app proved very useful when we were on the trails. The Tour itself was fantastic and the Macsadventure itinerary had good pacing and descriptions. The places we stayed were a bit uneven. Several were real gems such as the Bouton d'Or in Courmayer, Hotel du Glacier in Champex - the food was fabulous! - and Hotel la Couronne in Argentiere. And the people running all the hotels were very friendly and helpful. But La Grande Ours in Trient, while run by a super friendly couple, could have been cleaner and provided some very basic amenities to make it more comfortable, such as soap! It was our first trip like this, so we don't have much basis for comparison and luckily we had no issues on our walk so didn't need to reach out to Macsadventures once we were on our way. We did find the website a bit confusing.There is lots of good info but it can be overwhelming to navigate and frustrating to move between different pages. All in all positive, with just a few kinks. And the overall experience of the treck was fabulous
  • Mr Colin Piper 30/07/2021
    Overall, Excellent. Lots of info provided before the walk, and I read it all, and this proved invaluable. Weather was hot and sunny (for Hadrians Wall!!), so everything felt good. There were enough water stops en route. We were aware pre walk that one hotel (Howard Arms in Brampton) had a covid problem. On our arrival at another hotel (Samson Inn at Gilsland) we found it locked and dark, but we had had an email during the day from Mac's Adventure detailing how we could get in. In both cases the hotels did everything they could to be helpful. So full marks to the hotels themselves and to Mac's Adventure
  • Mrs Janet Leverton 30/07/2021
    Great trip, excellent communication and information beforehand, the maps were clear, app easy to use. Accommodation was comfortable, close to route, some were outstanding.
  • Anonymous 29/07/2021
    Nice lodgings, good customer service and hiking instructions. Reasonable pricing compared to many competitors.
  • Anonymous 29/07/2021
    Although we enjoyed our walk on The Rob Roy Way, we felt that it was spoilt a bit by poor way marking in bits, especially on days two and three, although we realise that this could be because of the markers being hidden by long grass and weeds. That apart we were delighted with Macs usual high service, accommodation etc was excellent.
  • Mrs Carol Mccaughley 29/07/2021
    1st class service, highly recommend. From booking Macs Adventure kept us informed with a full itinerary, provided great accommodation and without a hitch our bags where moved on daily. Cannot praise this company enough and will be sure to book our next adventure with them.
  • Mr Chris Taylor 29/07/2021
    Excellent service. A general enquiry on Monday and everything reserved and confirmed within a couple of days. An issue with my second overnight stop was communicated in advance and several alternative options offered. Again a quick, timely response that worked well. Top customer service made the whole walk on the WHW an even greater pleasure. I’ve recommended MacAdventures frequently since.
  • Mrs Corinne Chapman 28/07/2021
    A very well organised and supported holiday. Excellent customer service. Friendly approachable staff.
  • Mr Doug Merchant 28/07/2021
    Mac Adventures has Excellent customer service. The booking was done perfectly, and correctly. They answered my phone calls, email, and questions immediately. Kept in regular contact with me to check my tour progress. As I travelled on my adventure they kept me up to date with unforseen local changes to my itinerary by phone and if I could not answer they left a message. Some extra advice for you : -) Book your dinner meals well in advance. Any Taxis should also be booked way way ahead. Macs can do the latter for you. Don't expect that you will get a phone service in out-of-the-way places outside towns!! Happy holiday ;-)
  • Mr Ken Jackson 28/07/2021
    Communication plus App for the walk was excellent. 80% of the walk was beautiful and manageable but the 3-4 mile walk before Abingdon the terrain was appalling due to poor maintence of the verges blocking the view and forcing single row walking.(very wet). Two lots of accommodation were excellent 1. Oxford Town House & 2. The coach Makers Arms,Wallingford but Cosener"s House Abingdon was very poor they didn't even know you were collecting our bags? The other was The George Hotel, Pangbourne which was very basic room. All breakfasts were good. I think better accommodation should be offered and if we were to do this again shorter walks for 74 year olds would be safer.
  • Anonymous 28/07/2021
    As always, excellent service from Macs Adventure. Easy booking, all relevant information provided before departure online and in hard copy where appropriate. B&Bs very high standard. The app was a godsend when offline, GPS maps easy to use and kept us en route for the whole week.
  • Anonymous 27/07/2021
    Great experience
  • Anonymous 27/07/2021
    Accommodations: excellent, although the information was not updated considering COVID-19. Routes and maps: need updating - some of the route directions have not been updated since 2016 (bridges are washed out, buildings have changed, portions of the routes are even closed off as private property). As experienced hikers, the rating of the routes (most often as "easy") is misleading. By American standards of hiking routes, some of these were definitely "strenuous." Advising hikers to begin their day after a hearty breakfast at 8:00 is definitely not wise considering the weather conditions during the summer and the length of the trails! We began by 7:00 each morning and only reached a village square by 14:30 or 15:30 on the longest day. These trails are to be enjoyed at a good pace and not raced through. Since Wifi is not always available, it would be advisable to add the turn directions (right, left turn) in words because the downloaded version does not show the arrows! Waypoints should have some short explanation of what we are seeing! That would be great "added value."
  • Mr Ian Conaghan 27/07/2021
    Brilliant from start to finish. Seemless transfer of bags. Would book again for certain.
  • Anonymous 27/07/2021
    Great organisation for our trip. The B&Bs were all of a high standard
  • Anonymous 27/07/2021
    Efficient rebooking of a trip that was rescheduled twice. Friendly and helpful service and apart from one mix up in the instructions due to Covid change (sorted out with a phone call) the trip ran smoothly, the walks were delightful and the B&Bs excellent.
  • Mrs Dawn Powling 27/07/2021
    Good information ahead of trip. Organised very pleasant hotels and sorted out an initial problem caused by a hotel efficiently.
  • Anonymous 27/07/2021
    Had a fantastic week cycling Great Glen way. Everything was perfect from bike hire through to Amazing accommodation.
  • Mr Paula Hemingway 27/07/2021
    B and Bs were great! friendly with lovely brekkies. Ferries, accommodation were all sorted for us with Mac Adventures with swift precision and a regular updates. Guide pack was very helpful. We were blessed with amazing weather nature.
  • Mr Andy R 26/07/2021
    I have awarded Mac's 5 stars because apart from booking with them, I had no reason to contact them at all from start to finish. All the accommodations along the route were fine, the luggage was collected and delivered at the right time and to the right place- a guide book was provided. Outside of Mac's control were the weather and the midges - The weather was good for walking - the less said about the midges the better.
