Once again Dorothy and Geoff excelled in making my wife and I and 6 mates feel warmly welcome. We included the McGregor-Greyton hike this time made all the easier by Geoff dropping us off at the beginning and collecting us in Greyton. Highly recommended.

If you are going to McGregor - stay at McGregor Backpackers. It's a no-brainer. Nothing is too much trouble for Dorothy and Geoff. The rooms are clean, comfortable and good value. Dorothy's rusks are delicious and Geoff is a master at braaing.
