What a great day out with Ken. The tour was well organised, informative including a lot of local knowledge of the surrounding country and cattle stations near the Painted Desert. The walk in the hills at the Painted Desert was truly spectacular and unique. We visited Kens B & B after the tour and were very impressed. Thanks Ken

Thank you Ken for a great tour. We got to see some beautiful sights, learnt a lot of information and got to have your delicious lunch as well. The tour made our trip to Coober Pedy so much more interesting.

I wasn't lucky enough to be able to stay with Ken and Ana (they were full) but I was able to have a look at the B and B. It was wonderful, all the mod cons and so beautifully presented, it would have been great to be able to stay there. However, even though I wasn't able to stay at... More

Ken took three of us out for the day to Lake Eyre and we loved it! Had a very relaxing time, saw some amazing scenery and landscapes and Ken took good care of us. I can certainly recommend him for any group interested in seeing the outback in relaxed, easy going style.

Shortly after arriving in Coober Pedy, we waited for Ken Male of ANDO Tours to pick us up at our hotel, as scheduled. We waited and waited. He was a no show! Our hotel owner called around and found that Ken was in Adelaide, 1,000 km away. So, no tour with Ken. Thankfully his wife dropped off cash to our... More

Ken looked after us for a couple of days we spent in Coober Pedy and travelling to Lake Eyre. He really gave us an appreciation and insight into the area, its life and its landscape and was great company, indeed it was travelling with a friend. It added so much to our time there on a personal level and enabled... More

Ken was not our tour guide, he was just like an old friend. It was a great pleasure to experience the Painted Desert with him. Next time we will book him for all his tours. The short form of his name ANDO is really true - A Nice Day Out!!
