A memorable and thoroughly enjoyable Tag-along tour of the Madigan Line crossing the Simpson Desert. The history, geography and flora was accurately conveyed to the travelers daily and over UHF radio. The Pindan sand was spectacular and the dune crossings were challenging, but supported by Norm's immense 4WD experience, which he willingly passed on. Our tour group was a friendly and cooperative bunch from 3 states and all enjoyed the outback experience.

Well, it's not every day I allow someone else to drive my "Pride and Joy". Norm took my Campervan to "New Heights" albeit off road. Up and down Sand Slopes, Moguls and Deep Sand. I cannot recommend this course any more than 10/10. Believe me, remote Australian locations had better be prepared. We're coming now!

It was our first time visiting the Flinders Rangers so we decided to book a Pindan day tour on our first day there to get an idea of the history and area. It was a fantastic decision as there were so many places we would never have seen or known about otherwise. It was about 9 hours all up and most of it is driving. We have three children aged 13, 6 and 2. Norm, Coralie and Norms mum (who also came along for the ride) were fantastic with our boys and considered their needs and safety throughout the whole day. We got to stop and go for walks around different ruins and historic sites with beautiful views and scenery everywhere. The razorback lookout was one of my highlights, it looked like a painting. It was stunning. We were completely shocked and mesmerised with the Jeff Morgan gallery. We were expecting a few pictures on a wall but it was so much more. Floor to ceiling paintings that looked so real. Highly recommended. Throughout the tour, Norm would explain the history over the UHF radio and even the kids picked up so much information including the history of the Ghan and how ripple rocks were created. Norm and Coralie were extremely welcoming, passionate & informative who clearly love what they do. Were looking forward to returning to the Flinders and booking a 4wd tour next. Even if you've been there before, I highly recommend booking a tour!

My husband and I are gearing up for a trip of a lifetime around Australia later in a year with our two young kids. As part of our preparation, we recently took a 4WD training course with Pindan Tours. Located at the forefront of Flinders Ranges, Pindan Tours gave us a real 4WD experience and a great excuse for a family getaway. Spread over two full days, the training was comprehensively designed and conducted with the highest level of expertise and professionalism. Norm and Coralie made every effort to create a personal experience tailored to our needs, delivering an unforgettable adventure for the whole family that reached far beyond the course curriculum. While Norm patiently delivered the theory and taught us crucial practical skills on a picturesque private 4WD track overlooking Spencer Gulf, our kids explored native flora and fauna, prepared amazing crafts, and learned how to cook delicious scrolls under a caring eye of Coralie. Being very generous with their time, willingly sharing personal expertise and tips, as well as letting us drive their brand new 4WD, proves that Coralie and Norm take great pleasure and pride in introducing you to what is undoubtedly one of their greatest passions in life. What is more, the course is also very competitively priced, which means you are getting a great value for your money (while supporting local, family business!). Thank you, Coralie and Norm, we can’t wait to join you on one of the tag-along tours! With sincere recommendations, Kasia and Rino

Absolutely Brilliant!! I was gifted the 2-day basic 4WD course with Pindan Tours and 4WD Training for my birthday. We do a lot of 4WDing and have plans to tackle an extensive lap of Australia in the near future but at the moment, my partner does most of the driving. It was just so fantastic to be pushed out of my comfort zone, learn a heap of new skills as well as reasoning behind some things I already do (but maybe wasn’t sure why) as well as learning to trust the vehicle. To top it off, Dan learnt some valuable skills too! Norm and Coralie were lovely hosts and Norm’s knowledge far surpasses that of anyone else we’ve encountered. We were extremely comfortable in asking questions at all times, had the opportunity to drive through some of the Flinders most spectacular scenery and also learned some sneaky tips to make life on the road that little bit easier! We are now looking at signing up for the advanced 4WD course and seriously recommend the course to ANYONE looking to start out or extend their current skills further. No question is ever silly and no one is ever too experienced to learn something new! Thanks Pindan Tours and 4WD Training, we’ll be seeing you again soon.
