Maximise helped me in every way possible to sort out my stag weekend, even with how much I felt like I messed them about they were always on hand to help me out and Stacey was an absolute star with everything throughout the whole process! I'd recommend them to anyone thinking of going on a Stag/Hen weekend.
So after eventually getting to our hotel in Bournemouth (we now wish we booked travel through Maximise too as we had a nightmare with our minibus!) we were greeted by friendly people who gave us our keys straight away. The hotel was lovely, spacious and clean (nothing like the hen packages I've been on before). After settling into our rooms we got ready to go to our Yates for a meal. The hotel was in a great location, we had sea views and it was only a ten minute walk into town. We had a good meal and then moved onto a club where we had privately booked VIP for the night. The following morning we had breakfast and we couldn't believe the choice we had (some of us were feeling slightly worse for wear). After breakfast we walked next door to our spa where we changed into robes and had the whole pool to ourselves. We were called in pairs to have the treatments we had chosen. Everyone said how good their treatment was and I had to agree. We had the whole day to relax and unwind. At 1 we went upstairs to a private room where we had a light lunch which again was great. We then decided to go back to our hotels to get ready. At six, we made our way back into town, this time paying for taxis as some of us had relieved war wounds from the previous night. Taxis cost just £5 so we didn't mind. We arrived a vodka revs to be greeted by two young lads, cocktail glasses and pink shots. The cocktail making was the best experience of the whole weekend. We couldn't believe how much alcohol we drank. The games we played were great fun and so was the actual cocktail making itself. Throughout the day/ night we played a game called Peggy sue which involves finding a peg on yourself. The bar tenders even joined in this game with us and provided the loser with shots each time. After our cocktail making we had some hot nibbles and continued our bar crawl around Bournemouth. We ended up in Heroes karaoke bar which was great fun had by all. The following morning we managed to get up for breakfast again before checking out of the hotel at 11. Overall we loved the weekend and can't believe how good value for money it was. Maximise have been great from the beginning. I have had stress free planning as they have booked everything from the hotel, spa, meal, cocktail making and bar crawl. I would definitely recommend them to anyone thinking about a hen/ stag weekend. Thanks Zoey and the maximise team!!
I booked my Hen about 2 weeks in advance, very last minute, but Maximise were great and Stacey found exactly what I was looking for and at a pretty good price considering it was Valentines weekend! We stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Leeds centre, and as it was almost fully booked we were upgraded to Executive Doubles for the whole party for free - what a shame! My room was a suite with dining furniture, and also connecting doors to next door so we had even more room for the PJ party on Friday night. A DVD player was brought up along with tray after tray of nibbles and sweets, popcorn and dips. Every room had a mini bar which we had crammed full of alcohol and more food. On Saturday morning we had breakfast included, which was your usual hot breakfast buffet and continental, with tea and coffee brought round. We made use of the hotels pool and spa area, and then got ready for our cocktail making class in town. We walked to Vodka Revs in about 10 minutes, where we had our own private bar and our own dedicated mixologist who took us in pairs and taught us a different cocktail, which we also got to drink! Then we had some free hot nibbles in the bar before heading back to the hotel to get ready for our bar crawl! We had free entry to 2 bars and 2 clubs before a certain time, and our mixologist gave us vouchers for free shots as Vodka Rev was on our list. On Sunday we had breakfast again and check out was at 12pm so we had a lovely long lie in and relaxing morning before heading home. Top tip - get to Leeds early on Friday and go shopping at Trinity and the Victoria Quarter, its all within walking distance!
I would never have thought of going to Estonia for a stag weekend but that is where we all went. We had a great Hotel in the Meriton Spa in Tallinn, well kept and with all the facilities you could want. We arrived on Friday night and after a meal in the old town went back for some sleep, on Saturday we were picked up at 12 and taken out to a wooded area with some old military bunkers in it and once there we were equipped with all the gear for a riotous afternoon of paintball. We did this in cars ,on foot and a combination of both with set scenarios to tackle it was brilliant ! We all ended up looking like a Dulux colour chart !! Then back to the Hotel to get cleaned up and changed ready for a night on the town, after another meal out we headed off to the Venus nightclub, what a place ! It was heaving when we arrived and got better as the night went on definitely the place to go on a Saturday night , and on into the early hours of Sunday. On Sunday we were picked up again and taken to another area near a lake and in forested land where we were once more kitted out but this time it was for Quad-Biking ! We were given all the protective clothing and instructions by the guides and then set off following them across all sorts of terrain and obstacles for a good hour. It had snowed and this only proved to make it more interesting. Some of the group had done it before but others,like me, had not but it was brilliant !! We rounded off the day with another meal and a few drinks before haeding back to the hotel again for some well earned rest, tired but very happy !! All the weekend was set up by Maximise and all I can say is try them you won't be disappointed - we weren't.
After browsing a few sites, I finally found Maximise. It had the destination I wanted and was very reasonably priced. After enquiring, you are given a contact who helps organise your weekend with you and basically does all the hard work. My contact was Zoey Whelan. She really kept in contact with me and helped out massively when the airline we was travelling with let us down with a reschedule. Within 2 hours everything wad sorted. The events on the stag weekend was outstanding and Brno is definitely a place I would go back to. Thanks again maximise and Zoey.
Being very fussy I decided I wanted to organise my own hen due and choose something that suited me. I began searching the internet and that's when I came across maximise!
From the very beginning the lady who organised my weekend 'Stacey' was fantastic, I explained to her over the phone what my dream weekend was and I got my dream hen weekend! I wanted a pj party on the Friday night in my room for 18 people I thought this was to much to ask but being upgraded to the 'Presidential Suite' made this night fantastic.
Saturdays pop making DVD was the highlight of everybodies weekend and we cant wait to see the DVD. The dance choreographer and the camera men made us all feel at ease and comfortable they were fantastic.
All in all I can not thank Stacey enough for making my hen weekend one that nobody will forget, a lot of my friends said they had never been on such an enjoyable weekend!
After scanning the internet for Hen weekend packages I came across Maximise and got in touch with them. I spoke with Stacey about exactly what I wanted for my sister's hen weekend and she sent me through some packages. Several times I changed the activities and location and she did it for me without question. She was always available to speak to me about any queries I had and was always chirpy and a pleasure to speak to. As were the rest of the team that I dealt with.
The end result of the hen do was faultless! The boutique hotel we stayed in in Brighton was perfect for what we wanted and the staff were so accommodating and the food delicious. The beauty treatments that we had arranged were very enjoyable and relaxing, the cocktail class we had was hilarious and educational, and then the show we saw in the evening just topped off the weekend (especially for the Hen)!
All in all each aspect of the weekend that we had planned went down a treat and just made all the in between parts even more enjoyable. And for what we got the price of the weekend was more than reasonable!
So thank you to Stacey and the Maximise team. And to all the other parties involved in making my sister's hen weekend unforgettable and for making me Nº1 Maid of Honor!!!!
Wow, what a weekend, a fantastic way to celebrate with the bride all her hens, everything was so organised from the hotel booking to the club night. i would recommend maximise any day. A special thank you to Stacey Etherdige at Maximise, I asked her so many questions from the time we booked right up until we left and she stayed calm and answered them instantly. The package put together suited the hen down to the ground and I would most certainly use maximise again
Thanks so much for making it such a success everyone had a great time xxxx
Living abroad and organising my brothers stag was going to be a pain as I also travel a lot for work. Once a date was selected and activities chosen it was very easy. Zoey Whelan made my life easy and everyone had a great time. Even better for me she arranged everything and it went very smoothly.
From my first conversation with Zoey at Maximise I knew that they were the company I wanted to book with . It was hassle free with great advise and ment that I could relax knowing my group would be pleased with what I had booked them. As promised we were picked up from the airport at Amsterdam on time and taken in comfort to our hotel . After being checked in to the hotel by our english speaking guide (who was by the way fantastic and very accommodating) . We were again picked up on time and taken to a large indoor go-karting track and its safe to say everybody had a great time . We were dropped back to the hotel and began killing brain cells . We also took part in a bar crawl which was organised by maximise the following day and this comes highly recommended . Some of us didnt get in until 7am... so Amsterdam really doesnt sleep. Overall a fantastic stag that I as teamleader was able to enjoy as maximise and there staff did all the legwork for me.
We went to Barcelona for a hen do and had a fantastic time. Stacey Etheridge helped us with the organisation and everything was perfect through the entire weekend. What can I say? We look forward to the next one!!!
We have had a lot of weekends away and stag do's over the past few years but this was without doubt the best, Zoey was fantastic is organising everything for us. From the second we landed at the airport the madness just escalated, a stripper picked us up in the minibus which was a laugh then a couple of lovely Dutch girls showed us round some good bars that night on the pub crawl, On the Saturday we went for a booze cruise on the canal with a stripper and unlimited drinks which just made the weekend perfect, everything about it was brilliant and its something we will always remember. All in all anyone looking for an awesome stag do get in contact with Zoey and book up a booze cruise in the Amsterdam canal. Apart from the tattoo I landed home with everything was perfect.
A wonderfully executed hen weekend. Every aspect of the weekend went smoothly and seamlessly. My niece was the Hen and i know she found Maximise a great company to deal with. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend Maximise to all!
Thank you so much for such a fantastic weekend, we didn't want it to end. The Hotel was perfect and we were all looked after very well. Stacey at Maximise was on the ball and helped with all the pre trip planning. I will definitely recommend you in the future. Thanks again! x
Everything went off without a hitch, location and hotel were brilliant and the canyoning was well organised. Cardiff is a great place for a stag do, all the bars and clubs are down one street so you don't spend any time messing around.
It could have been a very difficult thing to organise, but with Maxamise, my stag do was made easy. Everything was organised for us and all we really had to do was turn up. The quality of our hotel was rather surprising for a stag weekend too. Will definitely be recommending to my friend who is getting married next year and will do so with anyone I know who is organising similar events. Great prices, great events and all made very easy by helpful staff like Zoey! What more can you ask for?
Great company, always got back to any queries straight away, taking the stress out of organising a hen do!!! Activities were great and everyone had a great time, Rooms were spacious with well needed air con!!! Location was central so taxis were cheap.... Would recommend to another hen or stag party!!!!
Had a fantastic weekend away for a hen weekend in Liverpool.
The booking process was very simple and Stacey was fantastic help with any questions I had and gave great advice on what would be good for our group trip. The whole maximise team went above and beyond to make sure we had a brilliant weekend and were very flexible when we wanted to make a couple of changes. Liverpool is a great city with loads of bars and clubs to choose from, but also lovely shops and places to see to spend some time during the day when you have spare time.
The hotel we were booked into was excellent, right in the centre of all the action and close to all the activities we booked. Nice clean rooms and great facilities (24 hour bar serving food!) Breakfast was full English (just what you need after a heavy night out!) and great quality.
I would highly recommend the cocktail making classes which really exceeded my expectations. Was a fantastic afternoon, plenty of drinks included and the food provided after was excellent. Luke the barman made it a great day and dealt very well with all the female banter!!
The comedy night was also great fun, the drinks in the venue were very cheap and was staggering distance from our hotel!
All in all a fantastic weekend and I would highly recommend to anyone thinking of booking with Maximise. If I ever plan another hen party ill definitely book with Maximise!!!!
Maximise arranged a stag do for 23 of the lads to go to Newcastle - races/golf/dogs. Zoey arranged it all, and even though we changed attendance/itinerary constantly throughout the process she never lost patience with us. All the fellas were more than happy with the quality and price of the hotel and activities.
What an absolutely fantastic hen do organised! 7 of us flew out to Barcelona for a special ladie's hen do, and everything that was arranged for us through Stacey Etheridge at Maximise was brilliant. From partying hard by the beach and in the centre of Las Ramblas, to relaxing in a fantastic spa or taking a 40ft boat trip out on the sea, we had such a variety of activities, which were all brilliant. The head bridesmaid had no issues with where we should be going, and what we should be doing. Highly recommend Maximise to organise the ultimate party for any special occasion. It was such a good trip, that I am suprised I made it back to the UK :0)
