Adventure Your Way

The Macs Way of travel is designed to allow you to adventure your way. Our team of destination experts work with you to create your perfect adventure and customize your trip to suit your interests; whether that's a whisky tour of Scotland, exploring Marrakech’s exotic souks or adding an extra day to soak up the charm of Capri.

Don't be restricted by a group

You're not restricted by a group so you can start any day you want, go for as long as you want and choose the style of accommodations you want; from remote mountain huts or cozy B&B's to superior rooms in elegant hotels. Plus you can choose who you travel with, escape with your partner or friends, go on that family adventure you've always talked about or take some me-time on a solo tour.

Enjoy the Freedom

Self guided travel gives you the freedom to explore the world at your own pace, no need to worry about being fit enough to keep up with a group (or others slowing you down!). Enjoy an extra-long lunch sipping a glass of wine and soaking up the atmosphere of the piazza. Or reap the rewards of the breath-taking views on the more challenging route on a Tour du Mont Blanc.

Immerse in local cultures

The best thing about not hiding behind a guide is you can fully immerse in local cultures; learn something new, taste unique dishes and mingle with the locals, from spontaneous traditional music sessions in a cozy pub in Ireland to bargaining with local villagers at the famous Otavalo market in Ecuador.

Feel secure in making the right choice for your precious adventure time. Don’t take our word for it, our customers describe our trips as ADVENTUROUS, EXCITING and FUN! Read our unbiased trip & service reviews to find out why.

Our Tour Types

  •  Walking
  •  Biking
  •  Camino & Pilgrimages

Walking Tours

Travel at your own pace and explore the world on foot, take the time to soak up in your surroundings, the incredible views and the peacefulness of nature. Take time to interact with the locals, eat when and where you want, no timetables, just putting one foot in front of the other. Choose to relax on an easy going trail, or to challenge yourself to reach a once-in-a-lifetime goal. However you decide to do a walking vacation, do it your way.
Walking Tours

Biking Tours

Cover more of your chosen destination on bike. Nothing beats the feeling of freedom as you cover the miles with the breeze rushing by and the sun on your back (we'll try to arrange the weather - but no promises!). Bike tours come in all shapes and sizes. For the seasoned cyclist, world class challenges await such as the C2C (England) or the Tour of Tuscany. For novices (or those wanting to take it easy), the ever-popular (and flat!) Danube Cycle Path offers classic inn to inn cycling or bike & boat options. Bike hire can often include e-bike options too...
Biking Tours

Camino & Pilgrimages

Follow in the footsteps of 1000s of travelers by walking or biking an ancient pilgrimage trail. Modern pilgrims walk for many reasons, sometimes religious, sometimes spiritual, sometimes for personal growth or to enhance their understanding of the world and its people. The most famous by far is the Camino de Santiago, and specifically the Camino Frances (the French Way). Walk across Spain from the French border all the way to Santiago, where the world-famous cathedral marks the end of the journey of a lifetime.

    Well organized, as usual! Accommodation and luggage transfers all went like clockwork. Good variety of accommodation and everyone welcoming. What a joy to be out on the trails again and here’s hoping I’ll be able to complete the second half of Camino Norte next year.
  • Lynn Bates 16/10/2021
    Excellent service, wonderful accommodation. First time using the company and found them informative and easy to get hold off. Answered all queries promptly. Gave a thorough itinerary which was easy to use. The accommodation arranged was 5 star, lovely places and well positioned for access to local amenities.
  • Heather 15/10/2021
    Great service, really responsive to enquiries. Everything went smoothly and we had a fantastic trip. Would definitely recommend them.
  • Mr Kirk Richards 15/10/2021
    Having never experienced a "bike tour" it was a little unnerving venturing out with only a "route" to follow. All the accommodations were good and the locations quite spectacular.
  • Anonymous 15/10/2021
    There is a lot of information on the app and website to help with planning your trip as well as detailed maps. The book that was sent to me was also very informative. I would definitely recommend and use Macs Adventure's in the future.
  • Mrs Angela Rafiq 15/10/2021
    Everything done effortlessly over email with Rhonda. She helped incorporate my husbands birthday into the walk so that we landed in the Kingshouse hotel on that date. Other b&b’s and hotels she choose also great. Hands down one of the best experiences ever. We will use Macs adventure for our future walks.

  • Ms Sarah Gray 14/10/2021
    Very fuss free. We just turned up. Accommodation arrangements were more than acceptable. Us two ladies each had a double room every night. The route was easy to follow, most of the way…just a hiccup or two with fields of cows, but we pressed on regardless. Luggage transfer worked a treat. No complaints at all. We even had the weather!
  • Mr Lewis Green 14/10/2021
    Good places to stay and info in advance . Hiccup re car parking only issue but resolved
  • Anonymous 14/10/2021
    Always. There was lots of good information, support and the quality of accommodation was very well pitched.
  • Anonymous 14/10/2021
    It was brilliant, I couldn’t fault it from start of process to the end. I will definitely use Mac Adventures again!

    Great holiday with top accommodation
  • Select Peter Anderson 14/10/2021
    They were responsive and flexible to the pandemic limitations, availability of hotels and meeting our wishes
  • Mr Dion Lannen 14/10/2021
    Great service all went very well like clockwork
  • Mrs Alison Eves 14/10/2021
    We were very impressed with the organisation and all the bed and breakfast accommodation that Mac booked for us. We have been busy singing their praises and recommending them ever since
  • Anonymous 14/10/2021
    Amazing service from start to finish. Made organising our Hadrian’s Wall trip effortless!
  • Mr Alastair Taylor 14/10/2021
    Yes, maybe next year
  • Anonymous 14/10/2021
    The holiday was well put together, the booking process easy and the client communication and help was excellent. We truly enjoyed our Hebridean week.
  • Anonymous 14/10/2021
    Excellent communication throughout. Effective booking process and delivery. Accommodation selected of a high standard. Fourth trip with Macs and not the last! Personable, pleasant staff who know exactly what they’re doing. Makes the holiday a pleasure …without much of the organisational pain.

    Well organised, good information pack, liked the accommodation, everything came together
