We had a fabulous day out with Wayne and guests. His knowledge of the area is fantastic. So many things to see and so many stories to tell. Unbelievable scenery. Thank you Wayne.

The best two day tour we have ever had, what an awesome experience thanks to our tour guide Wayne. We visited the Arckeringas, the Breakaways, a town tour of Coober Pedy and loads more. Wayne is very experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, he has given us everlasting memories of an extremely beautiful part of Australia that many people would not even... More

We completed a day tour to Lake Eyre in early July 2014. Wayne was always responsive when I made initial enquiries and decided to book his tour, he was punctual, and from the start of the trip nothing was too much trouble. He was incredibly generous in sharing details of Coober Pedy life, and life in the Outback. Our 12... More

I was lucky enough to have a tour with Wayne to Lake Eyre, going through the smallest town in South Australia, William Creek, and Wayne is an absolutely treasure as a tour guide! Very informative, without being boring (which is essential to any good tour guide), very laid-back and can answer pretty much any question you ask! Lunch and drinks... More

Absolutely amazing, Wayne makes every part of the tour individually brilliant. We were able to stop and take photos of anything (and there's a lot). I learnt more than I thought I would Wayne is very knowledgable able to answer every question. The painted desert itself is absolutely amazing site, we walked to the top (which was quite easy) to...

It has taken me some time to write this review, but I hope this doesn't detract from that fact that my mother and I had an absolutely wonderful time with Wayne on a day tour of the Painted Desert. I cannot recommend Wayne enough; if you are planning to explore this area, then do not even consider going with anyone... More

Wayne lived up to everything we needed in a tour guide. Not only did he share as much information about the area to make the sights significant, he shared his own personal stories as well. We felt safe at all times, and as 4WDers ourselves, shared valuable insights into 4WDing in this country with us. Wayne - keep up the... More

After reading such glowing reviews, our expectations were high but Wayne did not disappoint! We took a half-day tour to the Breakaways, the Moon Plain and the Dog Fence. The scenery was magnificent but it was Wayne's ability to put all we saw into context which made for a special few hours. He is indeed a wealth of information and... More

If you want the best tour of Coober Pedy I recommend you book a tour with Wayne. He is extremely knowledgeable about Coober Pedy & can show you sights that other tours probably don't even know about. On top of that he is a great bloke & really funny. We had an amazing afternoon & the tour really made us... More

The Painted Desert at sunset is certainly something special. And We got to see it. Many thanks Wayne. We really enjoyed our 4WD trip with you.
