“tour to Break aways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

I booked the tour to lake Eyer, but the road was closed because of rain.
The host took us to Break aways even the road was tough.
We enjoyed the tour.

“Ando tours and underground B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We had a wonderful time, the B&B was an experience to say the least. The host and hostes were very nice poeple and nothing was to much for them.
The tour to the painted mountains was special too with a very nice lunch.
We recommend this a 100%.
Worthwhile to do!

“Town and Breakaway Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We were very fortunate to stay with Ken and Ana at the Underground B&B (separate review there). We got a discount on the tour price since we stayed with them for a few days - a nice savings! Ken was a very knowledgeable host, he's lived in Coober Pedy for a long time and knows the place and the people inside and out. We learned all about underground home building in Coober Pedy - very interesting! - visited some local churches carved into the sandstone - very unique and worth a visit! We were off to the Breakaways, which are very beautiful! Ken was out with us explaining all of the history of the area. The tour was just us in Ken's truck so was very personalized. I'd recommend a guided tour over driving it yourself. If we did it ourselves we'd have missed going into one of his friends huge opal mines, missed seeing the deep holes they dig to sample for opals (these areas are fenced off since they lost a couple of unwary tourists down the holes...), missed the petrified wood from the bases of the huge trees on the moon plains and so much more! Ken was very friendly and a very interactive tour guide!

“Oodnadatta track to William Creek and return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We had a great day with Ken travelling the Oodnadatta track at speeds we would never do ourselves! Very informative, good lunch, excellent scenery. It was a long drive but most enjoyable. So glad we did the trip!

“Painted Desert and the Outback”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Ken took us out to the painted Desert,this is an amazing tour-saw the Dog Fence,frequent stops to note the geology-silica like rocks,ancient petrified wood rocks as well as the noting the vastness of the outback.We stopped for lunch at an outback station-just so far from anywhere-these places are so isolated.The painted Desert is great,the husband had a wonderful time taking photos and Ken was very patient-never did we feel that we were going to be rushed .We would do this tour again and any of the others Ken offers,he is a great guide.Thanks for a great day out!
