Starting with reservation of the tours, thanks to Karen for making the process easy. We had booked all our tours with SEIT. All three  guides - Wayne, John & Dan were exceptional.

Sunset tour of uluru with wayne: the sunset colours on uluru was spectacular and Wayne's new iPhone was the spotlight in capturing postcard perfect pictures of us. The bush tucker tomato dip was finger licking delicious , i wish the company sold them ! The ride was comfortable and we got a bonus ride to go around uluru as part of the tour.

Sunrise at Kata jutu with John: the tour commenced  early to catch the sunrise at a lookout overlooking uluru and rays of sun casting pink hues on kata jutu. It was fascinating to hear John explain the geography of the region. After breakfast,  we hiked to walpa gorge amidst the rock formations and didn't expect we could view the WA mountain ranges from there.

Uluru Base walk with Dan: we enjoyed this tour thoroughly and recommend it to everyone. It's worth walking 10km around uluru to see various aspects of uluru,catching the sunrise, the rock faces associated with chupuka stories, hordes of zebra finch's  chirping and flying around. It was captivating!

All the three guides  were very  knowledgeable with the culture and history of the region and gave us lot of insight of the indigenous people and culture. The small group tour was so worth it. Highly recommend SEIT tours.

Thank you so much for leaving such a detailed review of our entire company. Karyn is simply amazing in our office and our guides are the stars of the show running everything on the ground. It's great to hear you were able to experience both rocks with our guides John, Wayne and Dan. They all bring so much to each tour and have amazing knowledge on the area and the culture. Thank you so much for coming out and visiting us here in central Australia. We hope the rest of your holiday was just as amazing. Cheers, Monica

I’m not a morning person, but this was a tour that made me love mornings again! There were no words to describe the beauty of the sun rising behind Uluṟu. A moment in time I’ll never forget. And then being able to walk around the complete base of Uluṟu, gave all tour participants an intimate view of the giant monolith. The tour itself was a small group which I appreciated and the tour guide, Charlie, was very friendly, reliable, knowledgeable, allowed flexibility in pace and time, kept everyone in check and made sure everyone was ok on tour. Practically, because it started early, the heat didn’t intensify until after 12, so the perfect time of day for a base walk around the Uluṟu to avoid intense heat. I highly recommend this tour! Pure enjoyment and awe struck moments. Thanks again Charlie!

The 12km Uluru base walk is a great way to experience the rock up close. It is a very long walk but the ground is flat and even and the group takes multiple breaks along the way. Our guide Dan was knowledgeable and engaging and kept our kids (8yrs and 11yrs) entertained with Dreamtime stories which he told really well. The most pleasant part of the walk is before sunrise and before the flies come up. Our fly nets were great and highly recommended but can get a bit hot. There are caves and watering holes to explore and Dan explained the history of everything we saw. The breakfast comes in individual packs with muesli, milk, fruit cup, muesli bar, juice box, water, biscuits and tea/coffee/hot chocolate if you want it. Overall a very enjoyable cultural experience.

We started around 5 AM. It had rained the previous day and so was cool and comfortable. Its red dirt and the rock is very impressive. The guide stops and tells us of Aboriginal sensitive areas where no photography is allowed. No one knows why sensitive. So was lacking credibility. The stories of the aboriginal people (ANANU) were more like fairy tales or stories from Childrens books than like mythology. On our hike the water holes were full and the frogs in full throttle. The biggest issues is there are no toilets anywhere on the hike. We had women and children who struggled. For what the park charges as entrance fees, toilets are the bare minimum that can be expected. To be expected to carry heavy water bottles was a pain. We saw men and women move behind bushes to pee over a four hour hike. The guide warned on poisonous snakes. The Australian government needs to something here. Was very third world not caring of tourists. The hike while good was not spectacular. The caves for cooking and gathering needed a lot of imagination to agree with. On the whole a good hike. Need better facilities. A sure NO NO for anyone with a small kidney or feet issues ( very few places to sit and rest)

I hate giving bad reviews. I love exploring the world and the folks that agree to be guides are to be respected for their commitment to educating the rest of us. Unfortunately in this instance I felt like I could have learned more but reading a book because our guide pretty much recited the facts as if we was reading a book.

Our guide looked the part. Kind of a Crocodile Dundee with a broad rimmed hat, scuffed up boots and a casual demeanor. But after picking up our group of five plus a father and daughter from Ohio, we set off for a sunrise breakfast in a dirt lot off the main road.

Along the way this young man mentioned that he was originally from Melbourne. He was a plumber by trade but had come to Yulara on the advice of a friend and decided to stay where he found this job as a guide. Not the best bio for an expert on indigenous people.

As we stood in the early morning light he made a pot of coffee, set out banana bread, yogurt and muesli, and called that breakfast. Before we could attempt to enjoy these meager offerings the flies had descended. Speaking only for myself, I threw out my coffee to avoid inviting flies into my hair net and had one nibble of banana bread before calling it a day.

At this point our guide was pretty much reciting the script he had been taught. We would travel over to Ulurua, visit the water hole, see the rock etchings, and hear the history of this place. It just didn't seem particularly authentic.

The concept was great. The execution was poor. Perhaps another tour guide who had a better connection to the area would have been better. I vacillated between rating this "poor" or "average" and decided to go with average just because the guy was trying to be good. Next time skip the whole "I used to be a plumber" conversation.

Don’t be fooled by the nice comfortable pace that is touted in the description.
We did this walk and the first 4 kilometres was expected to be completed in less than 45 mins.
The guide walked ahead of most of the group until I ran to catch up to them to ask them to slow the pace so others in my party could keep up and enjoy the “guidance” we had been hoping for. They told me that they were the guide and would run the tour as they see fit. They also told me trek means “fast walking” and that I should have done better research if I wanted a stroll around the rock there were other tours for this. They then advised if my party and I didn’t keep up or continued to cause issues we would be removed from the tour. All because I asked them to slow down to the comfortable pace described in this advertisement on this site
We raised this experience with the tour company with no response

We were up at 5am to meet Jay our guide at 6am for the Uluru base walk.
We pulled up alongside the road for the start of our walk as the sun was coming up. It was freezing cold & I was definitely not prepared for it! However the walking warmed me up. Jay told us interesting stories about the rock & the anganu people. There were places where photography isn’t permitted & this allows you to really just soak in the history in front of you.
We had a great brekkie (cereal, hot drink, muesli bar, fruit & a bikkie) the sun was warming us up too. Fair warning, the toilet facilities are basic at this stop, but the next ones are a good hours walk away!
As we came around the other side of the rock, it changed completely & we were up close. More interesting stories & a bit of a slower pace to take it all in. Jay kindly took photos of the two of us along the way. It’s a long walk, but very rewarding & so worth it. Loved being with a small group & not on the big buses. Would recommend Seit for tours of this area.

Our Italian guide, Michele, was amazing and knowledgeable about the local indigenous peoples sacred sites, creation stories and the local flora. You could ask any question and could have a great conversation with Michele. The sunrise was spectacular and the whole walk was worth while. The sites of Uluru were breathtaking. Breakfast provided was a lovely range of snacks including cereal, coffee, hot chocolate, justice, but bars, biscuits and fruit cups. I would recommend this tour to anyone who’s interested in seeing Uluru up close and to hear about its cultural significance.

Breakfast was good however the tour itself was a 100 metre dash not the marathon it is and was not pleasant at all, I would prefer to take the extra half an hour to do the tour I paid for not finish half an hour early with time to visit the cultural centre. Little disappointed sorry Charlie. Had I known what it was going to be like I would have done the hop on hop off instead.

Very informative, done at a comfortable pace, with plenty of photo opportunities. Dan was our guide, he was very friendly & was a wealth of knowledge on the history of the local people. September is a good time as it is cool as you set off but quickly warms up once the sun appears above the horizon (it reached 36 degrees Celsius by midday). I think it would be quite an uncomfortable walk during summer, particularly for older folk. If you make it out to Uluru put this one on your list though. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hi Craig, We are so happy to hear you thoroughly enjoyed our SEIT Uluru Trek. You were lucky to experience the week of super warm weather in September. You are right about the summer months. It is more challenging. We are generally back at the hotel by 10:45am through the hottest summer months. For those, not so keen walking 12kms in the heat, there is always the shorter Uluru Highlights tour which is much more pleasurable in the warmer months. Dan really is an amazing guide and always manages to incorporate the SEIT experience in every tour. Thank you so much for booking, joining us on tour and leaving a review on your whole experience. We really appreciate your time, your comments and we are thrilled you had such a brilliant experience. Cheers, Monica
