Wayne's tour of Lake Eyre was wonderful. He was knowledgeable about everything we encountered, and I asked about EVERYTHING. The pace was leisurely enough that we could take the pictures we wanted, but the tour never dragged. The food was good, and he's the kind of guy you'd invite to your table even if he wasn't your tour guide. He pointed out dingos, foxes, and even caught a bearded dragon for us. We definitely recommend taking a tour with Wayne.

Thanks to Wayne, my husband and I had a great trip from Coober Pedy to Lake Eyre last month. What a nice, generous man he is, very capable and he was full of interesting bits of information. We thoroughly recommend his 4WD trips, small groups, great fun, lots of info, a friendly and informal atmosphere, and yummy lunch too. He can also incorporate flights from William Creek too if you wish.

Wayne of Arid Areas Day Tours took us to the Painted Desert for the day, he is the easiest person to talk with who has knowledge of anything you would like to know about the area. Always happy to do just what you would like, stopping for photos, special morning teas and lunch (even catering to special dietary requirements). It is more than obvious that you and your safety is his top priority whilst you are with him. His knowledge ensures you have the best vantage points to see all the sights, he walks with you to point out all the highlights that the desert offers. We could not recommend his tours more highly for all ages and abilities he paces the tour to your needs. With the distance covered and the personalised service, the leisurely manner in which the tour is conducted we feel it is excellent value for money. Thank you Wayne for being a highlight of our stay in Coober Pedy.

We were fortunate to do two tours with Wayne Borrett. The first was a half day tour of the many attractions around Coober Pedy, including some interesting locals, concluding with drinks and nibbles at the magnificent Breakaways at sunset. Magic!
The following day, our 40th wedding anniversary, we ventured to the shore of the truly awe-inspiring Lake Eyre where lunch was provided, followed by a flight over the Lake with Wrights Air and return to our accommodation in Coober Pedy.
I can't praise this tour highly enough. Wayne Borrett has such a wealth of knowledge which he imparts passionately. He and his contacts in the area made us feel most welcome. A great way to see the area.

We had a wonderful half day tour with Wayne Borrett, who passed his valuable knowledge on to us as we visited the amazing and unusual sights around Coober Pedy. We then ended the day with the sunsetting over the Breakaways - what a sight to see!!
We can thoroughly recommend a tour with Wayne - he was a great guide and we enjoyed our
experience of Coober Pedy immensely!!
