Thank you Pindan Tours for the intensive 4WD course delivered over the last two days. The theory cemented and pulled together ideas I had held previously about driving vehicles. The full day of 4WDriving was essential to develop the correct defensive driving skills required in the Aussie bush. This was a totally worthwhile and relevant course that met the latest driving standards and techniques. All done on the Flinders Ranges bush tracks, fantastic!….Maree Harries, NSW
Thank you Pindan Tours for your time spent with us exploring the Flinders Ranges.
There is so much history and great views that make the Flinders Ranges so unique. I appreciate the time spent leaning about our own ancient landscapes….Gill Harries, NSW
Awesome support provided by Norman Bee and Pindan Tours! We couldn’t have done it without your amazing ‘glamping’ extras! Helped us get to and from places along the Larapinta Trail that were just extraordinary! Thanks and Cheers!…..Gabrielle Enright
