I'm not one for camping & hiking, but this was a genuinely great experience and I recommend it. Our tour guide was Nick, who was really friendly & funny. I was one of many solo travellers on the trip so was brilliant for meeting people. The tour takes you to kings canyon (we weren't able to do the whole walk... More

Please be aware that you are not booking a "normal" tour but bush camping. If you are prepared for that and more importantly if you are willing to embrace what that means you will have an awesome time. Nick did a great job setting up the camp during a thunderstorm. Sunrise and Sunset were just stunning. Even though there were... More

Having been on the 3 day 2 night tour I came away disappointed with the company, but I suppose you get what you pay for when it comes to tours in Australia. My advice would be to spend a little more and go with another company.

We had Josh as our guide on The Rock Tour and he definitely showed us a genuine outback adventure. The sites were amazing! We did run into a few unforeseen sticky situations (ie. lightening/sand storm in the middle of our bush camp night) but when in the outback, you can't very well run and hide in a cozy hotel. Josh...

I went on a 2night/3day tour with a company called "The Rock Tour" our tour guide matt was great. It was such an amazing experience. Be prepared for lots of hiking in the hot weather. You need to be reasonably fit for this tour. We spent two nights camping outside, hiked Kings Canyon and Kata Tjuta, done a base walk... More

I went on this tour and was really disapointed about the general atmosphere among other things... It was not fun and friendly as it was claimed to be. The guide didn't seem to be happy to be here with us and was in a hurry all the time : only 5 minutes to eat in the sun, to go to... More

Before i join the tour, All I know about this place is a rock that change color. But the cultural tour give me a lot of history and information about the place and now I see it as a sacred place. Definitely coming back for longer stay and to everyone who planning to go there, please don't climb the rock!... More

When first booking the trip I didn't expect too much other than going to Uluru and obviously seeing a big red rock. Oh how wrong I was, out your guide (Andrew) was the sickest tour guide ever! The guy knows all his facts and has learnt all the tricks of the outback, and not a bad cook either! If your... More
