what our Guests said about us this month

"Contacted Ian of Detour Adventures a couple of months before our trip to Bathurst and he was very helpful in suggesting a nice itinerary for a day of 4WD touring. Everything went off without a hitch and Ian was helpful, informative and obviously loved his job. We drove on tracks that we would never have managed ourselves and had the opportunity to see some real bushland. Ian was also great at pointing out wildlife and gave an excellent commentary on the history of the area, providing alot of little anecdotes only a local would know.

His 4WD was kept in pristine condition & was a very comfortable ride for the 4 of us on the tour. We had a very nice lunch on the banks of a river - private and away from the crowds (it was a long weekend!) and very scenic. Overall, a very nice day outing and exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend using Ian at Detour for a day's outing for a taste of something different & unique. Thoroughly enjoyable."
