Simple. We have a brand new, spacious 4X4
Toyota Landcruiser – the largest in
its class. It has comfortable seating for
7 passengers with air conditioning to each
row of seats and the internal PA system
ensures each passenger can hear the commentary
throughout the tour. This vehicle has been
specially modified to tackle the most difficult
tracks, yet retain softness of ride and
comfort on the highway. It’s the same
sort of vehicle you’ll experience
in Dubai on their famous desert tours.
Being in a 4x4 makes me happy. I've been
driving 4WD vehicles for over 30 years and
know this part of the world very well. I
love taking people out on a Detour Adventure
and seeing the pleasure it brings families.
On a Detour Adventure, you will take away
great memories of a day off the beaten track
with Detour Adventures. After all, we are
the King of the Long Way Round ®.
