We just did the 3day tour "the rock tour" and it was amazing. Beautiful weather just after the rain so we had the chance to see some waterfalls. The experience was perfect and we would recommend to anyone who wanna try something different and unique in australia to do this tour. 355$ is quite a good price. The only thing... More

I won't go into to much details , because most people wouldn't believe it haha .... but I'd just like to point out a few things before you book with them: - Adam (our tour guide) was really unprofessional. It seemed like he was there to pick up... More

Walking around this huge sandstone rock is a mammoth task for a day, and unfortunately if you are on one of the many tourist tours only the half walk is usually provided. It takes around 3 hours. The is plenty to see on the way, birds, wildlife, plants, trees and flowers. Waterholes that had been topped up with the recent... More

Toured the rock and indigenous areas all day with a guide. Impressed by beauty and size . It definitely was holy. Returned at subset to a a beer and champagne spread and watched the rock changing colors with I suspect at least several hundred other people

We did the AAT Kings tour but there are many you can do. Highly recommend doing the cultural walk along with it, so much to learn, all about the caves, which means what or was used for what purpose, the reason for the waterholes and honeycombing, the red colour of the rock, the SIZE of the thing, where and where...

It's a long walk but you can realize hou big and fantastic is the rock. It took more or less 3 hours. It was quite hot so a lot of water was necessary

I walked the base, and the views are awesome. There are sections that you are not to photograph and this should be respected - signage everywhere - so no excuse for ignorance. As you walk around the base it is a beautiful time to just look at the different shape, colours and textures of the rock and use this time... More

We chose the Base Walk at Uluru, a sunrise viewing followed by a guided tour. Our group was small which was great and have a very informative tour guide. This is the 'must do' when visiting Uluru!

We did the Cultural Walk along with the bus sections of the Uluru sunset and base tour. Uluru is amazing, wonderful and complex close up and a chance to see it like this is unmissable. Our non-indigenous guide did a very competent job with the Tjupurka stories, telling us upfront the extent and limitations of her knowledge. We did appreciate... More

Have to say this was a fantastic tour. Adam is a great tour guide who is very knowledgeable and fun. The tour is professional and well organised while still being fun and easy going. The long drives are broken up with some good games and great music. All the sights are as good as expected and the food far exceeded... More
