'We were fortunate enough to do two separate tours with Rod and Candy- the "About Town" and the "3 Premier Park". Both of them have such a passion for the area, for the local people and the environment and truly gave us very memorable tours of their town.'
'Unfortunately, our time in Broome with Candy was too short!!!!! She had so very many excellent places to introduce us to I wish we could have spent more time with her!!!!! One of our favourite places to have visited is the Sisters of St. John of God Old Convent Campus, which we would never have even heard of if it hadn't been for Candy!!!!!! We were able to visit and LEARN about so many other most interesting, historical places in Broome, all thanks to Candy!!!!! I would most definitely recommend Broome and Around Bus Charters and Tours!!!!!'
'Rod is friendly and knowledgeable, and we learned a lot about the area, inc history and geology, indigenous people and their traditions, highly recommend Broome & Around.'
'It is truly a day we will remember forever. An absolute highlight of our stay in Broome. Tour operators Rod and Candy were so engaging, accommodating and incredibly informative about the history of Broome'
'Broome & Around Tours is the best way to get out to the croc farm if you don't have a car. Candy picked us up from our hotel, gave recommendations and pointed out places along the way. She was so warm and friendly and gave us a quick tour of the wildlife at the park before croc feeding time. She was great with our little three-year-old and the other kids. Well worth the money for convenience and ease. Topped off the holiday perfectly.'
'Perfectly organized tour. I want to thank my guide Rod for his excellence. The tour is well planned and makes you immerse yourself in the history and origins of Broome. Then you fall in love with the contrast between the red dirt of the Kimberley, the green mangroves that emerge from the waters and the unique and unforgettable blue of the ocean. Very appreciated and satisfied beyond the expectation! Thanks, Rod!'
