The 3 day rock tour is really bad. Not enough food , dangerous un trained tour guides and dirty swags/sleeping bags. Apparently in the last 6 months they have also had a bus roll over and also recently , there was a traffic death on their tour. All can be found on google search engine. There are much safer ,...

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

The last trip we did since we are leaving oz I. 2 weeks to fly home after a year here. Absolutely amazing. Very informative, cultural, and experience you can it miss if you are fortunate enough to have the cash!! We had the best tour guide. His name was killian. Honestly don't listen to anyone who winges about it.. (... 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

I can't say enough good things not just about the actual tour but also about the company. When researching which company to go through, I bothered the staff a lot of times ringing them up, asking questions, getting quotes, getting them to email me stuff and they were always so happy and helpful over email and phone. Then when I... More

I booked the wrong day, got an email from staff to verify and they changed my booking to the right day. I was with a friend, they went out of their way to change bookings to be on the same bus. I booked through a company not realizing another company had a $40 discount. When I asked about this in... More

The base walk around Ayers Rock was something really worth the effort. While a reasonable level of fitness is needed, only the distance should be any worry for the average walker. The paths are good and well signed to tell of any prominent features and some of the stories attached to those features. Bring water, sunscreen and insect repellent. Also... More

We chose to do the rock tour as it was the cheapest option and everything was included. It is advertised as a backpackers tour so we did not know what to expect. The first stop was Kings Canyon which is about a 4 hour bus ride away, unfortunately the buses are really old so there was no air conditioning and... More

So since there is only a couple of tours provided at Alice Springs, I decided to take "The rock tour". Unfortunately I regret this choice and would rather have rented a van myself for this amount of money. The tour was not worth the money (which if I recall it right was 355$)! three days of driving around to kings... More

I did the 3 day 2 night "The Rock Tour". My group consisted of 21 people. I'm in my mid 30's and everyone else in the group were in their 20's. It didn't matter as I'm young at heart. This is a budget minded backpackers tour. If you want luxury, then this tour is not for you. The visit's to... More
