Our Philosophy and History
We aim to provide a unique and memorable experience for the modern man. Our mission since 2001 has been to supply the ultimate Stag party. Pissup is a travel agency that exclusively handles the organisation of stag and hen parties.
We are an international company. Pissup Tours was founded in the UK in 2001 by British entrepreneurs Mark Robertson and Neil Smith and was one of the first travel agencies that dealt exclusively in stag party weekends abroad. Initially Prague was our only destination, however we quickly expanded into Tallinn and this was shortly followed by Budapest, Bratislava and Warsaw. In 2007 Pissup landed in Denmark with Mads Thorsdal and Rasmus Christensen taking control at the helm. The rapid growth of the industry now means that we also have markets in Germany, France, Spain, Holland and the rest of Scandinavia.
Our Clockwork is Swiss
2014 saw Mads and Rasmus taking control over the entire business and place more emphasis on the role of customer service. The Pissup brand is part of the company Custom Tours, based in Switzerland. Today we are responsible for organising stag and hen parties in 15 cities across Europe offering more than 600 activities. Whether our customers decide to hold their stag party in Budapest, Prague, Amsterdam or one of our 12 other cities, we guarantee a stag party that is reminiscent of the ” The Hangover “.
Over 100,000 Customers Over 13 Years
Our experience in the stag party travel industry is second to none. We have organised trips for over 100,000 customers over the past 13 years. We choose our local partners carefully and have had strong successful working relationships with the majority of them for many years. Our owners personally test many of the activities that we offer to ensure that we can provide our customers with the best service possible.
