10 Reasons to Choose Macs Adventure
As if you really needed them here are ten quick reasons why you should choose us for your next walking or cycling trip:
1. Outstanding Trips
Organising outstanding walking vacations and hiking tours are the reason we exist. We search out the best trails, routes, lodgings, restaurants and experiences so that your precious vacation is unforgettable for all the right reasons.
2. Hand Picked Accommodation
Staying in just the right accommodation is absolutely critical to the enjoyment of your trip. We search out authentic, locally owned and operated B&B's, country inns and hotels that have a sense of place and offer a unique experience. You will find details and links to most of the accommodation we use on the lodging tab of each tour so be sure to check it out.
3. Authentic Experiences
When you travel with us you won't just visit a destination; you will truly experience it. Travelling independently and on foot allows you the time to discover the essence of a place. Take the time to relax and enjoy a long lunch in the sun with the locals, stumble across a forgotten ruin or search out a spectacular view.
4. Flexible Dates & Itineraries
Our trips are built around you, so you can start on any date that suits you, choose from a vast range of itineraries or tailor-make an itinerary to exactly suit your needs and interests.
5. Unbeatable Value
Our trips are less than half the price of guided tours and typically significantly less expensive than equivalent self guided tours for a far superior experience, giving you unbeatable value for money. We don't compromise on quality but can keep the price low by booking direct, keeping our margins to an absolute minimum and not offering substantial agent commissions.
6. Self Guided Specialists
We only offer self guided tours because we do them really, really well. We believe that they are the best way to travel and really experience a destination, without the barrier of a guide. Since 2003 we have specialised in organising unforgettable self guided walking and hiking adventures and thousands of clients now trust us to arrange their perfect trip each year.
7. Local Experts (Our Destination & Adventure Specialists)
Our team is based locally throughout the UK and Europe. They can give you accurate, insightful and personal advice when planning your trip. They continuously visit accommodation, try out new routes and are of course on hand should you require emergency support.
Our team includes walkers, cyclists, mountain bikers, snowboarders, kite surfers and climbers who are passionate about delivering the best possible walking, hiking and adventure tours.
