Booked future brothers in laws stag do through chillisauce with the other best man. Our event manager Rebekka was absolutely brilliant and she organised exactly what we asked for to a tee. The day went smoothly and the night was amazing! Couldn't recommend chillisauce any higher and excellent value for money!
After being asked twice this year to be best man, I spent some time looking about for a company to help with the planning of 2 groups of 25+ people. Chillisauce and in particular Bekki have been superb to deal with, Bekki has kept in regular contact and been very accommodating when numbers have gone up and down! I’d definitely use them again, I’m a particular fan of their online portal and managing everything on there!
They did everything they said they would. Met us at Prague airport and provided transfers. The apartments were spacious and clean and they led us to good bars and clubs on our night pub crawls. Well done Chillisauce.
Great company to deal with who made all the arrangements and took away all the hassle of getting a large group in to various venues in and around Birmingham. Great that you could also make stage payments over a few months which helped greatly. Hotel we had was superb as well. Top dollar.
As best man I wasn't looking forward to chasing the stag group for money as some of the lads came from Liverpool, Newcastle and anywhere in between. Booking through chillisauce solved that problem. They made It very easy to organise and at a very reasonable price. Every one had a great weekend and I got all the praise. JOB DONE
Where to begin. Firstly it was a pleasure to deal with the polite staff at chilli sauce my event manager Elliot was great and never pushed me into anything I didn't want to do, he was very helpful in getting together a mixture of itineries for my stag weekend.
The company itself was very good at responding to any queries I had about the weekend.
On the events I choose, was a brilliant weekend and the venue picked out by yourselves was excellent. We choose, clays quads and paint bailing, The only gripe with the day is the way it was laid out, after doing the first 2 events we would have preferred more of the same. As paint balling can be done at a lot of places where as the others could not.
On a whole I was impressed with the whle experience and would recommend the company to anyone wishing to do a stag weekend or a team building weekend.
Booking with chilli sauce was so easy and made my life as bridesmaid so easy when planning the hen do to Barcelona as people could log in and pay for themselves and donate towards the bride. Chilli sauce tailored the holiday to our needs and made sure we had a classy place to stay and also provided really fun activities to chose from, we went for a bar crawl, pole dancing and a vip night- also when we were there we ordered a last min stripper! Well girls gotta do what a girl's gotta do! He was a right hunk and was a great surprise haha The holiday had amazing fun all the way through it and The hangovers were made easier with pre arranged transfers and taxis.

I really recommend chillisauce, Jeremy from chillisauce was polite and listened and very helpful. It was simple for myself all I done was selected the things we wanted to do online then I received a phone call the next day from chillisauce just to confirm a few things. Once everything was finalised I didn't have to do anything just turn up to the places, a proper hassle free night no questions asked all I had to say is chillisauce at each venue. Slight problem with the hotel which was no fault of chillisauce all I done is ring up the emergency chillisauce number and they was straight on the phone to the hotel and it actually worked out better for us thank you chillisauce again
The Chillisauce team provided a top class service for our stag weekend, suggesting ideas and tips for activities which we didn't even consider. Without their service the whole process would have been a lot more stressful and time consuming. I would definitely recommend using Chillisauce for any future stag/hen parties.
This company was very easy to deal with and the booking process was very smooth. The hotel was excellent, easily the best I've stayed in (and I travel a lot).
The activities were OK, but the organisers cancelled one activity the day before due to wet weather (it wasn't that wet). Additionally, there was only one gun for clay pigeon shooting and with 13 of us we only got one go each, for quad bikes, there were two bikes, so realistically we all got 2 short gos. I expected a bike each and a gun each (or pairs). But overall, the activities weren't terrible, and everyone enjoyed themselves and the weekend.
You need to be careful though, some activities have minimum numbers (aka lose deposit if you don't get enough) and the terms and conditions list a single person supplement charge if you end up with an odd number of guests (but we weren't charged this).
Also be aware that the site by default will e-mail the stag asking for full payment - most people don't want this so put in another email rather than his actual one.
I would highly reccomend Chillisauce as a planner for Hen Weekend, was so nice to have someone else plan it and we just turn up and all oragaised for you! The places we went and the staff are excellent if need any help on anything!
Chillisauce made booking Dodgeball (great fun) for my best mate's stag do easy. Sammi was very helpful and friendly on the phone and the website where you can view all the details of the programme is excellent. It included all the details, maps contact details etc and made it really simple on the day. Highly recommended.
The weekend wasn't organised by me, so I can't give any indication about ease of booking etc. All I can say is that it all seemed extremely efficient, even the ability to see who has paid etc. Not all places were as sparkling as others, the three course meal and drink was then not available, but that isn't chillisauces fault, but the venue.
I've just returned from my third trip with Chillisauce (Riga in Latvia) and can honestly say they never fail to deliver. I am only a simple Northern fellow so internets and all that is a bit of a kerfuffle but Rob is always available on the telephone (our Account Manager) and gives us a first class professional service. We've been to Berlin, Germany - Brno, Czech Republic - Riga, Latvia and can't wait to pick our destination for 2015. The website is actually very simple to master and a couple of calls in to Rob and everything we want is finalised in an hour or less. We get the guidance we need and the reassurance that everything to do with money is taken out of the organiser's hands and Chillisauce takes over. The trips themselves have been fantastic. Great hotels, and really fantastic local guides and activities. Travelling is all supposed to be about exploring and challenging yourself so it's great that supportive local people are at your beck and call whenever you need them. And more than willing to carry you home if necessary. I won't use any other provider and have no reason to complain about a single aspect of our trips. Thanks very much, Dan.
Where to start! After a week of planning was harassed to 'pay the deposit now, and your Hen will be 1/2 price!' so I did!
Completed the other ladies (12 in all) detail immediately as they had a limited time to secure their place....and that night they began to pay their deposits...
Late afternoon the next day received a call from another 'agent' who advised that the accommodation wasn't available (they hadn't even checked before confirming the prior day!) no alternative offered, no apology!
I called back later that day to arrange for the refunds to be made to those who had paid to be advised it would all be paid back to me and i was to repay to the individuals!! Not only is this against credit card policy but opens them up to all sorts of fraudulent transactions. Apart from this I had not met everyone and was not prepared to undergo admin for their inability to confirm what had been agreed...........2 weeks later i have received an email advising their Finance Director and legal team see nothing wrong with their processes for refunds and am still awaiting a refund!
**Meanwhile, i have managed to book the same weekend, with a higher class of accommodation for over 20% LESS!!**
My tip would be, avoid and arrange yourself........they don't 'own' properties or activities and everything they can do, you can do better!!
I have just returned from a hen weekend that I organised for my best friend through Chillisauce. Being the first hen do that I've had to organise and after hearing horror stories from friends that organised everything themselves and have been left out of pocket, I decided to go with Chillisauce. I'd done some research into locations and activities, but right from the start Chillisauce were on hand giving me advice about the most popular places to go and activities to do for my mixed-aged hen group. We decided on 80's dance lessons and cocktail making. From there on the process was really simple - everyone logged on and paid their own deposits and balances through the website. All I had to do was send a couple of reminder emails. The actual weekend was lots of fun - the hotel was lovely, clean and central, the activities were FANTASTIC and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I would not hesitate to recommend and have even started organising my sister's hen do for later this year, again through Chillisauce.
Tried to organise a treasure hunt for a hen weekend in Manchester through them. Paid the deposit which I was told would hold the booking and they could add or takeaway people on the booking, they set up an account so everybody could log in and pay. This is a hen party for 15 within 2 days most people had paid then I receive rude texts telling me it would be cancelled if all wasn't paid over the weekend, then Monday morning a text almost like a threat to tell me that it would be cancelled by 12 if the money wasn't there! Not what you need on a hectic Monday morning at work!! So never heard anything... I'm under the impression all the girls have now paid, or as I had been informed by the agent it's not a problem to add or take people off the booking, I sent screen shots of the messages to our whatsapp group which they all thought were very rude. (Turns out one of the girls wasn't on the group) Anyway I called Sarah (the booking agent) a week later as I hadn't heard anything to be told 'I cancelled it babe' there was just no need and they didn't even email me, call me or text me or refund the money that had been paid! All they had to do was send a pack through the post it's a self managed treasure hunt! Anyway finally got a refund and booked exactly the same thing through another agent and much cheaper!! Crap customer service, overpriced!
We used Chilliesauce because everyone lives so far apart (on different continents) and had our stag do in Edinburgh - lovely city! The events planned by Chilliesauce couldn't have been better. So much was crammed into the weekend & it was great not to have to worry about accommodation as they sorted it all out for us. The accommodation was top notch too! When (if) my time comes for a stag do I'll be looking to use Chilliesauce to organise mine!
When I made an enquiry about a booking I was inundated with calls,emails, txts asking me to book and helping with any queries I had. Since booking, I can't can't hold of account manager & she isn't interested in replying to any of my emails. However, when I booked she said send an email or call whenever. Bad customer service!! It seems she just wants commission?? Very upset with service & would like a new event manager.
