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.
Always a night to remember at the Mcgregor Backpackers! Once again we where privileged to meet and experience like minded people, great conversation, warmth and friendliness! Dorothy and Geoff are truly exceptionally likeable people and always make us feel so welcome in Mcgregor! Will definitely be staying over again when in Mcgregor. Thanks again for the wonderful experience! Emma, Robyn and Oliver
On the strength of my husband's great account of a previous visit, we returned to McGregor's Backpackers with a friend last weekend - and we'll be returning again in a few months with a group of six other adults!

The owners offer a great balance between being welcoming and hospitable, and letting guests enjoy privacy. They know the area well and were able to offer advice about places to visit and highlights to enjoy.

He personally drove me to a store where I could buy refreshments after our exhausting and adventurous day. The rooms were clean and welcoming. Just outside our room was a…
