What We Do

The Mad Hatters is the perfect platform for adventure seekers, risk takers and avid explorers who are looking for opportunities to get out of the daily grind and journey into some of the less explored areas of Pakistan.

We provide a platform to like-minded individuals who are passionate about exploring new places and learning new skills. The educational element of our trips gives a hands-on insight into the local culture and lifestyle of the places we visit. We take education and learning out of classrooms to make it an entertaining and interactive experience that encourages people to think out of the box. Our aim is to combine education and traveling, to ensure that the participants learn something new while traveling with us.

Pakistan is home to some of the most spectacular landscapes, architecture, and communities. The Mad Hatters’ team is not only focused on exploring these amazing areas, but also strives to make them better through conservation and community development activities. We emphasize on the welfare of the areas that we visit, and inculcate the same values in the people who travel with us.

Even after the long struggle for women’s empowerment and equal rights, it is still a rare sight to see women in public spaces in Pakistan. Hence, the freedom of traveling is not as easily enjoyed by women, as it is by men. But, The Mad Hatters is continuously striving to change this fact. It is probably the only tour operator company in Pakistan that is being led by a woman, without any male partner/support, so it naturally offers a comfortable environment for females on trips.

Last, but not the least, of course we have a lot of fun during the course, and our trips are bound to cater to your adventurous and leisurely desires as well.

Our Story

The Mad Hatters is the brainchild of Aneeqa Ali, an avid traveler and cyclist with a strong passion for exploring and experiencing new things.

After graduating with an MBA degree from Lahore School of Economics, she acquired a diverse skillset by working in various industries, including investment banking, telecommunication, education, not-for-profit, and the fashion industry.

Aneeqa’s passion for traveling took her to the remotest corners of the country, and made her fall in love with the beauty, heritage, and diversity of Pakistan. Giving in to her love for traveling, she decided to turn her passion into a career and came up with the idea of ‘The Mad Hatters’; a platform for all the wandering souls like herself, who have an unconventional way of approaching this life and its challenges.

Through this platform she aims to educate people about the beautiful landscapes, culture, lifestyle, crafts, and cuisines of the country – the side of Pakistan which generally does not get the deserved limelight.
