AAT Guided tour around the rock

We did this as part of a group with AAT and it was great. A 12 km might sound daunting to some but the pace is easy and we had a 6 a 66 and 70 year old with us who did it easily... read more

We did the much sought after 4WD base tour which is excellent! This tour includes breakfast at a private dune top viewing area to watch the sunrise over Uluru. Then you head off towards Uluru along desert tracks with a brief stop at the cultural centre before commencing the drive around the rock. The guide Ned is very informative with... More

Go on your own if you can. The Rock Tour takes you to some incredibly beautiful and unique parts of the world. Kings Canyon is breathtaking and romantic, Kata Tjuta is spiritual, and Uluru is well worth a look too. It's just that you can probably better off without the Rock Tour company if you're able. 1. The sleeping arrangements... More

After a year living in Australia, the Red centre was in my 'must to do' list before leaving the country and this experience completely fascinated me! I came by bus from Adelaide to Alice Springs and joined 'The Rock tour' there. The 3 day tour were amazing, with the best tour guide ever! Tom was a great guide: very funny... More

I caught the Uluru Express shuttle service at 6am out the front of the Outback Pioneer Lodge where I was staying, it was a $60 return bus and I bought a 2 day pass which was unlimited usage. Robyn, the bus driver was cheerful and gave us maps, info and a bit of history. Its around 20 minutes from the... More

Wow X 1000 times. I had to come back to Australia to see Uluru and the surrounding areas. There is just nothing quite so spectral as seeing Uluru or the Olga's in the North west Territories of Australia. It's not the heat or the flies but the scenery that changes every mile. It's seeing the Kangaroos, Camels, Horses, Giant Lizards... More

My husband and I visited Australia on an around the world trip in January 2014 after arriving from South America. We had driven along the east coast and not been blown away with what we'd seen or learnt about Australian history apart from the Great Barrier Reef. However, the Rock Tour with Matt as our guide changed all that. We... More

Itinerary was good; there was enough time to explore, but it was still efficient. It was good that people were able to choose longer or shorter treks, so it didn't get too physical to anyone. It also made the tour more personal cause we were split to smaller groups. Our tour guide Phill was informative, friendly and very helpful. He... More

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
