“Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” 

The Adventure Factory was born out of an unrelenting passion to travel across distant lands to seek out amazing adventures and the people that yearn for them. 

We started this company with the purpose of creating the most amazing, mind-blowing, and unbelievable adventures available on planet earth so that we could share them with our closest friends and family. Ultimately, we wanted to give others the ability to experience these places with us and push the idea of what is possible in the realm of adventure travel to a whole new level. We don't believe in the ordinary, and think that man is capable of much more than he knows.  

With this in mind, we have designed a range of adventures to cater to the people out there who want to travel with a purpose and who are bored of 'vacations' and 'holidays'.  Each of our adventures will have a charitable or humanitarian component because we know how important it is to feel like we are not taking from Earth more than we are giving.

We welcome you to join us on one of our adventures and experience the world like never before!

This is The Adventure Factory!

The Adventure Team

Mike Savas (Co-Founder/Chief Adventure Officer) Mike is originally from New Jersey and comes from a large Italian and Greek family. Mike got his first taste of international travel while participating in a global study abroad program called Semester at Sea at the age of 20 years old. Over the course of 100+ days, he circumnavigated the globe with 700 other university students from around the world and visited 10 different countries. To date, he has been to over 70+ countries and has spent the last 10 years of his life working and living in the music and concert business.

After nearly 10 years on the road managing international tours for Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones, Katy Perry, Prince, Britney Spears, The Black-Eyed Peas, Miley Cyrus, Janet Jackson, Queen, Guns N Roses, Neil Diamond, Hugh Jackman, Oprah, and many other touring artists, Mike finally decided to launch The Adventure Factory and make his life-long dream of operating the world's most bad-ass adventure company a reality.

When Mike is not producing concerts or events, he can be found on yachts, at conferences, getting others excited about life, or playing with his drones in some strange corner of the world.

Max Rantz-McDonald (Co-Founder/Chief Adventure Commander) Max is approaching his 100th country visited and is a well known man of adventure who solely survives on Red Bull and the roar of the crowd! A former professional Rugby athlete and event manager, Max now travels the world full time gracing stages and the internet with his wild adventures and filling those fortunate enough to catch him for a day with love and life. As a self proclaimed experience collector, Max has no lack of energy and will do whatever it takes to ensure his friends are having the time of their lives!

Max has represented his home country of Ireland on the rugby pitch at international levels while gaining scholarships and trophies along the way.

Having a strong sporting background, Max quickly developed a passion for organising sporting events. He has worked for World Rugby and the European Rugby Cup while also running his own Rugby Sevens tournaments.

His sporting prowess extends to skiing which he practices religiously, having recently skied in the Arctic Circle under the midnight sun. After only picking up sailing two years ago, he has professionally skippered yachts in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and Asia.

After leaving the sporting world and retiring from Rugby, Max decided to work for himself his passion and he moved into a number of new event industries, namely the music industry. Max worked on the Bon Jovi and Katy Perry tours and is booked on Oprah's tour of Australia New Zealand this coming December.

In the last two years Max has started MCing at various big sporting events. Signing contracts around the globe and becoming an integral part of each event he takes part in. Max has MCed to hundreds of thousands of people internationally.

Gregor Gregorec (Adventure Team Czar) Gregor Gregorec, aka the Slovenian Hammer, is one of the most skilled and most capable people you will ever encounter. When there is a job to get done or something that needs to be fixed, look no further than our Adventure Team Czar. The only thing more impressive than him is his moustache.

Gregor was born in Slovenia in 1992 and has been sailing on yachts from as early as he can remember. His childhood was mostly spent running around in the woods, climbing the trees or swimming in the seas. His biggest role model in life is MacGyver.

Nowadays he typically spends around half of the year on sailing boats, cruising around different parts of the world. Whether it’s delivering sailboats across the Atlantic, sailing a group of naked girls from an island to an island or just racing on regattas in the Adriatic sea, you never know where you’ll find him next.
