    Very well organised and accommodation was of a good standard
  • Mr George Rigby 20/06/2021
    Two minor problems out of office hours were rectified Macs staff immediately. The problems were not caused by Macs but by their suppliers. It's good to know Macs "have your back".
  • Mick 20/06/2021
    All went as it should, according to plan and without a hitch The accommodation was great, some a little better than others, but all to a good standard. Luggage was always at accomodation before we were a welcome site after a day's walking All in all a fantastic holiday! A big Thank You to Macs Adventures!!!!
  • Anonymous 20/06/2021
    Excellent as always! Totally reliable.
  • Anonymous 19/06/2021
    Great trip, but I had to chase travel docs prior to departure. Accom and baggage transfer were good.
  • Mr Jonathan Smith 18/06/2021
    Hi start to finish took all the Organization out of my hands into theirs and all I had to do was turn up. Will definitely use them again and recommend to my friends.
  • Miss Hayley Middleton 18/06/2021
    We were really impressed with the organisation of the trip and when we did come across any issues or problems Macs were always readily available to answer the queries and sort out the problems! Would definitely use them again! Thank you the Macs Team **
  • Anonymous 18/06/2021
    Macs adventure booked us a lovely series of places to stay and were very efficient. The instructions for the walk were really good. In short everything was really stress-free. I cannot recommend them more highly.
  • Mrs Clare Wight 18/06/2021
    Every hotel we were booked in was exceptionally friendly, helpful and clean with close proximity to where we wanted and needed to be. Breakfasts at each were also excellent. All good choices, thanks to Macs knowledge and relationships in the area. The suggested routes were excellent with realistic timescales to complete those walks and good guidance on how tough they would be. Our luggage arrived on time every evening too which was a relief after a long day. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday and we would definitely use Macs Adventure again. Indeed, we're already planning our next trip.
  • Anonymous 17/06/2021
    Everybody we talked to at macs to get the thing set up was extraordinarily helpful and generous with their time. The trip turned out to be very much as advertised, and we really enjoyed ourselves. My only suggestions for improvement are as follows. First, it might be helpful to describe to potential hikers the varied levels of civilization that exist along the trail. Some of it is quite suburban, which might surprise people who assumed they would be in a rural setting all of the time. Second, there is part of the trail that was unavailable due to erosion of the coast. Although it might be possible for some hikers to do that walk, if the tide is extremely low, my sense is that it is basically not going to be available to almost anyone. If that is the case, it would be useful to disclose that in advance.
  • Anonymous 17/06/2021
    Well organised, good hotels used.
  • Mr Stephen Slater 17/06/2021
    I liked the challenge of completing the route. Also doing a reasonably long walk where most of the Macs UK walks are only a few days. The downside of this being routed to go coast to coast was that while parts of it had brilliant scenery passing through national parks, in between were several days of walking through less interesting flat fields. Macs arrange mostly good accommodation choices but were poor providing information. They only provided a map for half the route saying, “we were not able to get the map for the west section in time”, even though the map was easily available online for next day delivery and they’d had weeks to get it. They sent a guidebook that arrived just before I left by which time I’d already purchased one myself to read before going. Some distances on their own notes were off by several km. On other trips, the bag for luggage transfer had to be left by 10:00am and Macs provided them with a list of where to take it. For this trip Macs chose Sherpa Van who required the bag left by 8:30am, which even using the earliest breakfast times at the B&Bs usually meant packing shoes and toiletries before breakfast. Also, they require you to remember to write the next stop on the luggage tag every day, and what happens if you forget?
  • Mr Andrew Wyles 17/06/2021
    What a great holiday walking the West Highland Way. Superbly organised by Macs. We would do it again tomorrow. Only gripe was that would have preferred the excellent book they supplied to have arrived earlier to aid preparation.
  • Mr Mark Anslow 16/06/2021
    Send out paper copies of the accommodation details and both maps covering the walk. Details on "dashboard" also seemed to include details from last years holiday?
  • Anonymous 16/06/2021
    A lovely trail with spectacular scenery in places. All the accommodation was very good and near the trail. Took a wrong turning once coming off Cleeve Hill. Some of the accommodation could do with having lighter duvets on the beds, or a summer duvet in the wardrobe. Luggage was collected promptly at 9am each morning. What we didn’t realise was how tiring it would be having to lug our cases up flights of stairs to our rooms at the end of each day. We were so grateful on a couple of occasions they were taken up for us and left outside our rooms.
  • Anonymous 16/06/2021
    I would recommend and buy from you again. The support the trip organiser gives is great and questions answered quickly. However I don't like your website when selecting a holiday initially. I found the layout of your previous website better and easier to use.
  • Mr John Dawson 15/06/2021
    Loved the IOW coastal path, really great 5 days of walking but would possibly stretch it to 6 or 7 days and limit to a maximum 15 miles per leg. Having said that we loved every step, every minute. The arrangements and itineraries were great and everything worked like clockwork.
  • Mr Brian Stewart 15/06/2021
    Well organised, great communication. Will definitely use again.
  • Anonymous 14/06/2021
    Macs Adventure managed to organise our holiday at very short notice and at some lovely hotels and guest houses. Luggage transfers worked smoothly. Information pack was very useful too.
