Okay, the first thing I have to say about Pete is that he is very chillaxed and willing to help. He is responsive to emails and cleared up a date issue really quick even though it was my fault. We received a spotless 4WD for $170 per day (2 night min). We wanted it mainly to get to Hamersley Gorge (not suitable for 2WD road - very corrugated and the gravel dust from the road trains is unbelievable) but it was also good to get to Dales Gorge and to head into town without having to lug a motorhome everywhere. No crazy rules (like the motor home companies) and our credit card covered the excess if required (I checked our credit card Product Disclosure Statement and double checked by ringing them prior). Pete gave us a run down and a few useful tips prior. He even delivered the 4WD to us and picked it up afterwards at Tom Price Tourist Park. The cleaning fee was included too “I’d be disappointed if there wasn’t red dirt all over it” LOL! Tremendous country service!

Karajini National Park is such a special place and Pete and the team are the best people to show you this as they love it too! Pete has been lucky enough to live in Karajini for 6 years and brings a unique perspective and experience to his tours because of this. The tours are well catered for in every respect. The tents are comfortable and right next to the toilet block with good lighting. The food is incredible thanks to his lovely wife Karen, and every dietary need was covered effortlessly. Water shoes were provided for those who didn't own them, and even spare sleeping bags and camp pillows incase anyone was caught out. The time in the park followed the internet itinery and was filled with really insightful commentary the whole way through. It is the most amazing destination ever and the only issue with the tour is it's not long enough! My suggestion - do the 2 day tour with Pete as an introduction and then hire a 4WD from him to do a few more days on your own. Pete has traveled far and wide but has fallen in love with this area, so it's not just a job to him. He understands what it's like to be travelling far from home and goes above and beyond to make sure that the tour participants time in the region goes as smoothly as possible. If you're travelling in W.A. dont missout on Karajini - well worth the drive out there! Give Pete a call and book in - best decision you will make for your whole holiday 😊

We loved every minute of our Flying Sandgroper Reef to Range Tour. Pete is a brilliant guide, and nothing was too much trouble. Karijini is a must-see; the gorges are stunning, the swims were wonderful, and the drives through the park just breathtaking. Honestly couldn't recommend this tour enough.

Karijini is a beautiful place and a must see for any traveller. We had such a great time with Pete and his crew. They’re a relaxed and friendly bunch who put safety first and give a professional, informative and interesting tour. Pete is always ready with a story and was happy to give us information on what else there is to see in the surrounding areas. I’m telling all my friends to see Karijini with Pete – great food, great people and a great time!

My wife and I both loved every minute of our full day tour. And a full day it was with a pick up from Tom Price Tourist Park at 7.30 and a 6pm return. Peter our cheerful and knowledgeable guide is the owner of The Flying Sandgroper. He is a genuine enthusiast on all aspects Karijini National Park be it the geology, the flora, the history the pastoralists and miners of the surrounding region and local aboriginal culture Every aspect of the tour was done well. The Route, choice of scenic stops and the delicious food and drinks, the cooling Swim. As a couple of Boomers we were surprised how easily and comfortably we handled a long fairly hot day. Highly recommended
