Hi milanskapin, Thank you for taking the time to leave AAT Kings an amazing review! We always appreciate when our guests share their experiences that they have had with us. Our Uluru Sacred Sites & Sunset with BBQ Dinner is an experience to remember! The colours changing on the horizon at the Sunset viewing area are incredible and our authentic Aussie BBQ under the stars truly is a magical way to finish a great night. Thank you again for the review, we hope to see you again on board AAT Kings tours soon!
