I booked a Hen Weekend in Cardiff with Escape Trips which included a 2 night stay, pole dancing and a Ladies Pleasure Night.
The weekend was excellent, very well organised and ran very smoothly. I had no problems when turning up to the activities. The pole dancing was great fun and was a good lesson time at 90 minutes. Saturday night was a Dreamboys event which was a great laugh. I thought we would still have to queue but the doorman had my name down and we walked straight through to our seats with a drink on arrival which I thought was a nice touch.
The hotel was very nice which included a nice hot and cold breakfast selection. There is another Park Inn hotel which is central in Cardiff that I would reccommend as we spent roughly £15 each on taxis for all weekend. I think the central hotel would be worth paying extra for.
The weekend was great value costing only £135 each. I would reccommend Escape Trips and would consider booking again in the future.
Escape Trips organised the most fantastic Hen weekend for us in Nottingham. They couldn't have been more helpful in our requirements (ever changing!)and were very efficient and personable. We made a few amendments from the standard package and they facilitated each one. Payments were made directly by each of the party which made it all so easy and an itinerary was re-sent every time we tweaked something. Food and atmosphere at Las Iguanas was spot on and followed by some dancing in one of the clubs we had passes for. We took a Glee Class on the Saturday which was brilliant (and hilarious!) and had a fab lunch with cocktails at the venue. In the evening the Princess River Cruise was fabulous with one of the best carvery's I've had, the music was great and we danced our feet off with a totally amiable crew. The Park End Radisson looked after us really well and accommodation & breakfast great. A brilliant weekend which I didn't take all the credit for as wouldn't hesitate to recommend Escape Trips to anyone trying to organise a gaggle of girls!
When I was given the task of organising the stag do, I was concerned about the complexity of organising an event for a large group, with payments and bookings etc. But booking it was very easy with Escape Trips.
We went to Nottingham for a stag weekend. The stag had some wishes that didn't necessarily match any of the pre-designed package on the website so I editted an existing package online and submitted the query. I was then contacted by them through email and phone to discuss what I wanted and a plan was formed taking into account the requirements, number of people and budget. David Charter, Ivan Fisher and Holly Allen were all very helpful.
In the end, the package was almost tailor-made, and yet was still significantly cheaper than other companies (Maximise, ChilliSauce etc) while offering the same (if not better). The online management system was very was to use and made the payments and admin effectively hassle-free, which is great as my biggest concern is chasing people up for payments.
The itinerary was then very effective, allowing everyone to see what, when and where. Perfect!
We had an amazing weekend of food, laser tag, go-karting and a busy night out, and all ran perfectly together. I would definitely recommend Escape Trips. I felt reassured that they had the details covered and that if anything went wrong, I had a contact to help sort it.
My only recommendation would be to enquire about transport. They do state that transport is not included (to and from the city of choice, or to activities) but these can be booked if needed, so enquire. Also, perhaps a guide for the city (food places, popular pubs /bars / clubs) would help as often people are not familiar with the place they visit.
But, in summary, just what was needed and perfect organisation throughout, highly recommended. If I had to organise another stag weekend I would do it through Escape Trips.
So we want to Nottingham for my best mates stag do, which I was best man for, which meant I had to organise this that's when I went online and discovered Escape Trips. From the get go they were nothing but helpful, I created my own weekend which came out a lot cheaper than any other website I found, it consisted of dog racing on the Friday, dirt buggies on Saturday morning, dodgeball in the afternoon and a table reservation at hooters on the evening all with two nights in a 3 star hotel with spa facilities which were used in-between activities, all for £145.
From when we arrived till when we left it ran smoothly due to escape trips organisation skills and attention to detail, we were given an emergency telephone number just in case, which wasn't needed, but it was nice to know there was someone on the other end of the phone if we needed them. The weekend was a complete success thanks to escape trips and I will be recommending them to friends and family and using them myself again if I ever get asked to be a best man.
Escape trips helped organise the perfect stag do package for me and the rest of the group (17 people) to accomodate all of their needs and personal preferances.
The service from start to finish was fantastic and would recommedn Escape trips to anyone organising a hen or stag do or even a weekend away.
Hotel was superb which was in walking distance of all the main bars / clubs and transport links.
The complete package was superb value for money when you think you are staying in a busy city (Leeds) in the centre for x2 night with breakfast, karting for 17 people with comedy club included as well all for £139 per person is fantastic value for money.
Had the best stag do and weekend i will remember for the rest of my life!
Fantastic weekend in Liverpool for a good pals stag do.
Hotel was brilliant and in a great location. Rooms very tidy and top breakfast in the morning.
The activities set for the weekend were spot on. Liverpool it's self is a great city but as I'm a big music fan just sitting in the cavern listening to music for a few hours having drinks with good friends was sound.
The comedy club was real fun and had us all in stitches which set the weekend off nicely. Then races the following day was a great way to end a great weekend.
My other half is rubbish on the competer so has asked me to feedback. They all thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, there were a few sore heads both mornings!!!!
They all thought the hotel was brilliant, the staff friendly and couldn't fault a thing. The itinerary was a perfect mix of things to do and also having their own time to explore the musical delights of Liverpool like the Cavern and the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour. Both the comedy club on the Friday night and the races on the Saturday all ran smoothly, pick ups and drop offs all arranged, contact details swopped. No issues whatsoever. To top it off Madness were amazing.
Steve and the lads all said they would highly recommend your team and company to anyone and found the set up easy to use and being able to pay in a couple of instalments helped the affordability of it. There was a lot of communication between your team and us so was good to know you were on hand to answer any questions.
Thanks again for everything :o)
I have just been on my hen weekend to Bristol.
From booking the weekend Shellie @ Escape was fantastic, offering help and advice when needed, even recommending restaurants to go to. All the information arrived in plenty of time which included maps of were the activites where.
The hotel was lovely and close to shops and bars. We did two activities; cocktail making (which I would highly recommend very entertaining) and the pleasureboys show. Had a fab weekend
Highly recommended, thanks Escape!
As Chiefs bridesmaid i wanted my best friends hen party to be perfect and with the help from Escape it was just that.. Shellie from Escape was very helpful and helped organise our lovely spa weekend with VIP entrance to the top nightclub in Torquay hassle free and at a great price the hotel was fab all my girls had a great time :) I would recommend Escape and will definitely book with Escape again
I chose escape to plan my mates stag do out of 3 company's I got quote from on the Internet. From the start escape we're so much more enthusiastic and helpful than any of the other company's.
The weekend was in Newquay surfing and coasteering with Cornwall's answer to the bear grylls an amazing time in the day then curry night clubs etc all on the guess lists all amazing venues it was an unforgettable weekend expertly planned and real good value for money
I used Escape to plan my Brothers Stag Do. We did a combination of Outdoor Go Karting, Comedy Club and Hotel - in Leeds. This was what I settled on - but I told them my requirements and they gave me a range of options, including having a curry in the evening, or further activities in the day.
The Karting was brilliant. The Comedy Club was great. The Hotel was a brilliant choice - great standards, clean, good rooms with en suites. I have stayed in some horror shows of hotels for stag do parties in the past... so everyone in the group was really impressed with Bewleys Leeds. Great breakfast in the morning too... just what the doctor ordered.
I would easily recommend these guys to anyone looking to plan a stag or hen do.
We have just visited Nottingham for my brothers stag do and used escapetrips to organise the weekend.
From the first email to arriving at the Hoyle door I had clear and concise information about all aspects of the trip.
There were no issues with checking into the hotel which was very stag friendly. Two activities booked which ran on time and details proofed of how to get each one.
To top the weekend off we were provided with a queue jumping ticket which as a nice surprise got all 17 of us in the club for free.
Would highly recommend escape as it was easy and secure way to organise a weekend away.
Me and 5 friends went to brighton for the weekend and had a fantastic time! We done the package of a meal at pizza express on the friday night, which was lovely! And then cocktail making on Saturday, where they were absolutely brilliant, with fantastic service and a brilliant day! Fantastic service from escape!
We had a brilliant time with our go karting and stag arrest arrangements. Also the transfers were always on time and accommodating for us when we needed to drop off apartment keys to reception in another building.
Will always be my first port of call when going away!!
The weekend went really well and very much enjoyed by all. Our best moment was the go-karting as value for money it was fantastic. The hotel was just what you needed and for the price was great.
All the activities were organised well and excellent quality for money.
Having the club and pub passes was a great help not having to queue to get in.
Overall fantastic weekend made all the better by the excellent organising by Escape, thoroughly recommend Escape to organise your Stag/Hen weekend as they had excellent communication. Would book again with them. Thanks Guys!
In using Escape to organise the hotel and weekend entertainment for my recent Stag weekend couldn't have made it any easier to sort.
I just choose a location and what we wanted to be doing on both the Friday and Saturday nights as well as during the day on the Saturday, and they did the rest. It was all so simple and very cost effective.
I had thought organising my sister's Hen Do was going to be time-consuming and stressful but ESCAPE did everything for me - brilliant!
We spent a weekend in Birmingham, stayed in apartments (spotless, perfect location), did the GLEE dance session (hilarious fun, friendly instructor), went on two nights out (Birmingham night life is brill - and was much cheaper than usual thanks to the VIP tickets!).
Thanks ESCAPE for a stress-free, fun weekend. I will definitely be recommending you to my friends.
As a group, we couldn't commit to going abroad, so an alternative UK destination for my mate's stag was the next best thing. We chose Bristol after speaking to Escape about it, and they didn't fail to deliver! VIP passes to a couple of clubs, including Oceana, fuelled up at a really cool Mexican restaurant. Highlight was definately the passes to Central Chambers, had the stag pole dancing and all sorts. Was a really great night, massive thumbs up to Escape Trips for sorting it out and giving us a great price for everything. Can't thank you guys enough!
The quality of service was outstanding right from organising the transport to the activities. We enjoyed our time in Bristol seeing some of the local attractions ;), it was action packed and full of excitement. I would highly recommend using the service again, they took the stress and worry of arranging the weekend!
Cant thank the team at Escape enough! As head Bridesmaid I was not looking forward to organising a Hen Weekend for 20 girls. The guys at Escape made it so so easy for me. The weekend was a massive success and the hotel was brilliant, THANK YOU
Escape the hassle!! Totally sorted our Stag weekend. Hotel more than met expectations, activities were all well run & organised. Off road buggies, paint balling, clay shooting & plenty of beers (not at the same time!) proved popular with everyone in our party.
Worth every penny. Highly recommended.
Well done Escape!!
We had a brilliant time. Granted it was a top crowd to hang out with but the organisation of the weekend was first class too. Escape were easy to deal with, good on price and very organised. Who said being a best man was difficult - just a shame they don't write speeches too.
I booked my hen weekend to Leeds through Escape - we had a great time!
It was a really user friendly experience dealing with Escape, initially on their website, then speaking to one of the operatives directly - very friendly and organised.
We stayed in a 3 star hotel, which was clean and comfortable for the price and the spa facilities were relaxing and enjoyable.
We had dinner in a lovely restaurant and then went onto a comedy club, a jolly good night was had by all!
I would recommend Escape for a stress free hen or stag - we were not disappointed!
We had a great weekend - all planned to perfection for the most part. Great events, clubs, restaurants. Escape were very user-friendly, and had the patience of 'Job' in dealing with all the chopping & changing when organising this!
A couple of slight problems - the hotel rather screwed up the room arrangements, but we got through it, and the clay pigeon shooting event was too over-crowded and not enough shots given.
Other than that, all good!
We had a great weekend in Bristol, and everyone enjoyed themselves. We were very happy with the hotel (they got the rooming list a bit jumbled up but it wasn't a big problem).
The activities were also great, it was a good way to break the weekend up, which otherwise would have been constant drinking..!.
I guess the only downside was that a few people mentioned they had problems using the VIP cards in some places. Personally I think it was just bouncers refusing to accept them just because they could, but again it wasn't a massive issue.
Thanks again to Paloma & Shellie at Escape for all their help. It would have been a lot more work for me (and more expensive I'm sure) if I'd done it all separately.
The responsibility of this weekend landed on my shoulders and I did not know where to begin. Got in touch with Escape and it was pretty much all done for me. The choices given by Escape of what to do there, appealed to all.
Our contact in Amsterdam, was very helpful, informative and on hand with any questions with regards what to do, where to go and directions. The highlight of the weekend for all of us, was the Drag Queen Show. All the girls said that was the best night they had in a long time!
Accommodation was central to everywhere we wanted to go, modern, clean and well equipped.
They definitely took the stress out of it all. We had one very happy Bride at the end of the weekend
A great weekend which was enjoyed by all!.
As organizer of the Stag weekend, I was pleased that the booking process was so easy. Escapetrips website made the shortlisting and subsequent selection of our activities really easy and was good to be able to talk to either Shellie or Paloma if I needed to.
As for their chosen suppliers:
Only one minor irritation with one of them which was immediately overcome by them offering a solution straight away.
Our evening was just brilliant.
Great choice of hotel and very good location too.
We had a brilliant time! The clay pigeon shooting was a real laugh because none of us had done it before: the supervision was excellent and very patient! Definitely recommend to others.
The casino was equally excellent - a last minute change of venue wasn't a problem, since this was completely taken care of by your good selves. It turns out to have been a blessing is so much as the new venue was literally across the road from where we'd chosen to eat. The whole package was very reasonably priced and went very smoothly. Would recommend to others.
I booked a stag weekend with Escape and found them by far the best because of the personal attention to detail, excellent communications back and forth throughout the booking process and also their overall customer service. Shellie is super efficient - you will be in great hands. Highly recommended.
The thought of planning a hen weekend filled me with dread, so I was so relieved Escape took the stress out of it. The whole booking process was so simple and we could all pay separately, which was ideal for the 15 of us.
The customer service, I experienced was incredible so knowledgeable and flexible. It felt that what we wanted was really important to them.
We went to a fantastic day spa, which was very relaxing and the treatments were lovely. We loved the hotel and it helped so much that we were right in the centre - prefect.
We had such a great time, that to be honest we just want to do it all over again!
Thanks Escape for arranging a wonderful weekend!
Escape set up the weekend and we everyone was happy - it was a great weekend in Newcastle. very polite and helpful over the phone. Little bit of confusion with the attendee's but got sorted. I will be using them again to set up an Amsterdam trip this year
Booked a cocktail making session for a hen weekend in Brighton. Staff were really helpful. Booked everything for me. Venue was great and the staff there made it a really good day. Escape were always quick to answer any queries which was great. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
I booked a stag weekend with Escape and right from the start they made it easy for me. They came up with loads on options and events for the day and I was able to choice what fitted our group perfectly. The booking process was really simple and they even have the ability for you to send invoices to your team members in order for them to pay on line, which I thought was a great touch. The communication was great and very prompt. I would highly recommend using them again.
Superb company, anybody organising a stag do don't look any further, my lot not the easiest to organise but Escape made it so easy, had stag do in may and lads still talk about a top notch weekend and all at a very good price, we did birmingham, paint ball, 4 star smart hotel with brekky, loads of vip cards for about £60 quid, stag went free, was superb, David is excellent at helping and made it very simple for us, we on about having a re union next year with lads and escape....
I have never recommended anything in my life but was very happy with the service from Escape trips. We stayed in a great hotel bang in the centre of Liverpool and had a wicked time at a paint ball centre that was geared up for a bunch of rowdy stags. We were all amazed at how cheap it was (could not have found it cheaper myself) the team at Escape were very helpful in organizing the trip with plenty of ideas
