We did this tour with six other people and our great SEIT guide Michele (young Italian gent). Although it is described as an afternoon tour we did it in the morning as SEIT had been mucked around a fair bit by work being done in the National Park at Walpa Gorge, causing a lot of their regular tours to be cancelled.

We jagged it for a lovely group and we all warmed to Michele due to his hospitality, knowledge and care for us all. When I say warmed, we needed it as it was 3 degrees when we arrived to see the sunrise from the Kata Tjuta viewing platform. People had sleeping bags, blankets and warm partners and friends to keep them warm. I would have paid good money for a beanie (which I did the next day in preparation for the Sounds of Silence dinner). We only had around 50 people on the platform which could probably hold about 200+ so we had unobstructed views.

After a breakfast of cereal, hot chocolate, juice and toast masterfully prepared by Michele we walked up the gorge. We were fascinated the whole way by the conglomerate formation of the rocks - totally different to the smoother rock shape and appearance of Uluru. Lively Zebra Finches feasted on a small patch of water en route and entertained us with their singing and aerial dancing.

Michele told us stories and shared information for the whole trip. He knows a lot about the flora and sparse fauna and met the challenge of all our questions. We had a truly good time.

Also want to give a special call out to the delightful Julia who arranged things for us from her SEIT information booth. She juggled our late entry onto a tour with several cancellations and reorganisations caused by anticipated Park closures at Walpa Gorge. She kept us informed the whole time and looked after us very well.

We are so glad that you got to experience the stunning sunrise at Kata Tjuta, even though it was a bit cold! Worth it though, right? At SEIT we aim to share not only the stunning views of Australian landmarks but also the cultural stories that are tied to them- and we are happy to hear that this is an experience you got to enjoy. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this lovely review, and we hope to see you again soon. Cheers, The SEIT Outback Australia Team

We did the Kata Tjuta Domes tour of Walpa Gorge with Connor from SEIT and he did a fantastic job explaining the way life was in the National Park and how the Anangu people lived during these times.

Due to the weather being in the mid 40s, we were not able to complete the trek into the Walpa Gorge for our safety. Most places in the National Park close the treks if it reaches beyond 36C which it did majority of the time we were there. However, not to worry as Connor took us to the Kata Tjuta Viewing Deck which was absolutely stunning.

I would highly recommend this tour as Kata Tjuta is often overlooked for Uluru but is just as beautiful. Definitely would recommend going in the early mornings if you are going in the summer months or going during the winter.

Don't forget your fly nets!

We were picked up nice & early ar out hotel & met Aussie Mick who immediately was engaging & we knew we were in for a good day.
He told us very interesting stories the whole way out to Kata Tjuta. We absolutely loved the viewing platform where you could see both Uluru & Kata Tjuta and had plenty of time to soak it all in.
We then made our way to Kata Tjuta where a great brekkie was prepared for us, cereal, fruit, coffee, tea & juice & lovely hot raisin toast. We were able to go for a short walk to get a great view of the domes before going to Walpa Gorge.
It’s definitely a challenging walk not in it’s difficulty or steepness, but the path is rocky & uneven so you must concentrate! It’s also windy (Walpa means windy) so hold onto your hats.
Mick stopped regularly to point out interesting facts about the gorge & its geology & animal & plant life.
We had ample time to take picture’s (he took pictures of us as well) & go at our own pace.
It was an amazing place, we loved it.
On the way back Mick remembered all our questions. Highly recommend this tour & if you can go with Aussie Mick, lucky you!

I'm not giving this a lower rating because (a) it's my own fault for booking the afternoon tour (I booked too late to get the morning tour) and (b) I liked the tour guide. However, it was quite hot when we went, hot enough that my wife and I agreed she should not go. I was the first one picked up and told my guide this. After we picked up the others and drove out there, upon our arrival to Kata Tjuta our guide informed us that SEIT had a policy that once it hit a certain temperature they only complete half the hike.

So my first thought was "Why didn't you mention this at booking? Why didn't you tell me this when you picked me up and knew I was leaving my wife behind?" Then in addition, once we get into Kata Tjuta and would go no further, I noticed that NO OTHER GROUP was turning back. Only ours. This was quite frustrating.

So I do not recommend booking the afternoon tour when there is any chance that it might get too hot.

A great 3 hour round trip to see Kata Tjuta and walk up a part of this amazing rock. There were 2 couples and our guide, Charlie, who gave us lots of interesting and informative information about the area, history and culture. We needed to return on time to get to another tour and he was really accommodating to ensure we made it.

A wonderful afternoon seeing a truly incredible part of this amazing country. Dan the van man, driver and tour guide extraordinaire made it an unforgettable experience. His knowledge of this area and his ability to share it with such enthusiasm was wonderful to be a part of. I would highly recommend this tour & if you are lucky enough to get Dan as your guide, you are in for a real treat.

We took the afternoon tour after flying in from Melbourne. Ellie, our tour guide, drove us out to Kata Tjuta, explains the aborigine culture along the way. Saw a camel along the way. Could only walk halfway into the wind gorge due to the heat.

The Kata Tjuta are incredible and worth seeing up close. The various types of vegetation and the impact of the fires were also explained.

If you go on this tour make sure you ask for John! He was a supurd guide with an abundance of knowledge, enthusiasm and life experience. His excitement and interest was infectious. He was attentive to every member of the group and was fascinating to speak to. Thank you John for making this an amazing experience.

This tour nearly didn't happen for us as our booking hadn't been changed from 2021! However, Karyn worked her magic and got John to take the 3 of us. Thanks to both of them the tour was great, though a bit rushed as I'm a slow walker and John had to be back by a certain time. But it really is a magical place and a must see for anyone travelling to this part of the world.

The weather was so hot they should have canceled the tour. Guide Erica was good and knew her stuff but it was too hot to walk even the 20 minutes that we did. I would not recommend this tour in the summer afternoon. I think they also offer it in the morning.

Hi, Thank you for joining SEIT Outback Australia on tour and thanks for taking the time to leave a review of our Afternoon Kata Tjuta Domes tour and our guide Erica. With temperatures in the high 30's to low 40's I can agree that is it hot between the domes in the afternoon, especially when there is limited shade along the trail. SEIT Outback Australia has altered the itinerary of our Domes tour and shortened the Walpa Gorge walk for the health and safety of all our clients during the summer months. As you mentioned above, we do offer a sunrise Kata Tjuta tour which provides the same experiences in the morning as the afternoon tour, without the hotter temperatures. We highly recommend this tour to everyone during the summer months. Again thanks for leaving your review, and we hope you enjoyed your stay in the Red Centre. Cheers, Monica
