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

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
