    Accomodations were top notch, except for the one in Cloughane. The room in Cloughane was dismal, bathroom was mouldy, not nice at all.Could not do the walk over the shoulder of My Brandon due to the fact that it is a very challenging hike which is not recommended in cloudy weather. It is rare to get a clear day in Ireland? I wish we'd had the option of a cab ride to the beach head near Cloughane, and accomodations for the last night in Castle Gregory. If I had known ahead of time about the walk between An Riasc and Cloughane, over Mt Brandon, I would have chosen the cab ride and beach walk to Castle Gregory in advance. Other than that it was a good walk and we would choose Mac's Adventures again.
  • Mr Keith Halstead 07/09/2021
    Timely booking, good communication, mostly good accomodation. We had trouble at one place that gave us one small room but two rooms had been booked. The landlord had to find us alternative accomodation in the town and it was an interesting and not entirely satisfactory.
  • Anonymous 04/09/2021
    It was so nice having Mac Adventures arrange our accommodations and meals. We also never had to worry about our luggage arriving at our next destination. I would highly recommend hikers to use Mac Adventures. I know we will consider using them in the future.
  • Anonymous 03/09/2021
    Walk instructions needed to be much more clear and specific - also taking account of livestock that might be in fields, etc Dorchester is not an attractive town to stay in - we were disappointed with this
  • Mr Guy Gibson 03/09/2021
    Love using Macs Adventures for our trekking overseas. We found the company to be extraordinarily efficient with hiking logistics for our 2019 trek in the Scottish Highlands and our 2021Tour du Mt. Blanc, Thank you Macs Adventures for your attention to detail and for the perfect places to lodge while on our hikes. We plan to use Macs Adventures again in the future.
  • Anonymous 02/09/2021
    Accommodation and information was excellent
  • Anonymous 02/09/2021
    Communication was great, accommodation great, price reasonable, service friendly. Phone was answered promptly and the issue dealt with efficiently when we had a last minute change of plan. Very happy.
  • Mr Duncan Priestner 02/09/2021
    Macs Adventures Organised a great holiday with lovely accommodation. The app with the downloaded maps gives reassurance in case you get lost. We used the book they provided for navigation but had to refer to the app a few times.
  • Anonymous 01/09/2021
    You were great in persisting to find accommodation at a time when it was hard to find along Hadrian's Wall. We were always treated with courtesy and the team gave us reassurance that, though it might take time, you they would be able to book for us. The only downside was that the App wasn't user friendly and I got lost in the online tool and couldn't properly export it to share with our party. it would have been easier if you had said straight out that we would be following the Sustrans path which was well-marked.

    We booked our trip in 2019 and were told this year that Refugio Bonnati could not be confirmed for us and that we would have to bus back to Courmayeur and re-bus back to Bonnati the next morning. We had no instructions about what bus, where to find it, what times the bus ran. We had no idea if the bus was arranged for us by Macs and assumed it was. We had no idea that we would be expected to sort this out for ourselves in a country where we don't speak the language. We managed to reach a lovely woman at Macs who was puzzled as well that this had not been communicated to us or worked out on our schedule. We discovered that there is extremely limited bus service to Bonnati: 2 each day within 30 minutes of each other at both ends of the day. the morning trip 7:10 and 7:40 we would have missed entirely as it is when breakfast is served in the Bouton D'or (which we missed). Bussing back to Bonnati also adds approximately 1500 feet elevation gain on an already challenging hiking day. Additionally, we met other Mac's travelers who had booked in 2020 and had been confirmed at Bonnati. We really felt disappointed that, having booked and placed half the booking money a year in advance of our fellow travelers, they were confirmed and we were not. It really doesn't feel like the right thing for Mac's to have done. The trip and hike were wonderful and we loved the Alps but felt somewhat undervalued in the Bonnati experience and believe that we should have been confirmed in the order we booked the trip.

    Macs were prepared to book an alternative trip to our original plan of Haute Route East. We requested this due to the risks of cancellation and likely difficulties in travelling to Switzerland. We ended up taking the back up trip to the South West Coast Path.
  • Mr David Bain 01/09/2021
    Macs provided a well organised troublefree trip on the West Highland Way. This is our second trip with Macs and I would recommend them.
  • Mrs Helen Tysseling 31/08/2021
    Very efficient and good value for money. Accommodation generally very good and maps/ support information very helpful
  • Anonymous 31/08/2021
    From booking it and all the way through Macs stayed in touch and kept us informed. At a very difficult time they sent all the information and any changes to restrictions. The walk and everything Mac’s booked was brilliant, the accommodation was excellent. The walk is very tough, if you are considering doing it, train for it, do the miles and walk with smiles.
  • Anonymous 31/08/2021
    Great communication, well organised trip and everything went smoothly as planned.
  • Mrs Shirley Gallacher 31/08/2021
    Excellent, there's only one thing went wrong on trip. The itinerary had said transfer back to hotel but no details of who where or when. After chasing macs, a call did eventually come through from a taxi company, but by then we'd decided to change plans. We should have been given contact details, as you don't always get a good phone signal while out walking. Apart from that, accommodate was lovely and everything g went smoothly. I would have liked some more human cantact though, instead of all emails. It was however a wonderful trip, and I will definitely use macs again (as I have on several occasions before)
  • Anonymous 30/08/2021
    Basically everything worked well with the major exception that instead of a B&B in Warkworth, we were booked into one with same name in Ayrshire. Fortunately, the people running the B&B in Warkworth were very helpful and helped to find an alternative for us in Warkworth.
  • Anonymous 30/08/2021
    Excellent communications, everything ran smoothly and to plan. A great company to trust your holiday plans with.
  • Samantha 29/08/2021
    From the initial enquiry to our return home the service was fabulous. Great itinerary, superb places to stay and speedy support service. Can’t fault it.
  • Mr Robert Burnett 29/08/2021
    Overall Macs prepared us well for the trip and then delivered as promised.
