“Well organised and fun from start to finish”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We did the day trip to the Uluru and the Olgas from Alice Springs - 19 hours start to finish. It is not easy to make such a "big" trip enjoyable but these guys could write the book. You are greeted with a warm and bouncy welcome at 6am and entertained and looked after all day. All the little touches are there along with heaps of local knowledge, local culture and lots of laughs. They do this trip every day (not the same crew) but never once gave us this impression that this was just another day at the office. Their goal was to give us a great day out and they delivered 100%. Thanks Tic, Jason and Emu Run Tours - a real class act not to be missed when you are in this area.

“Awesome Day with Emu Run Tours !!!!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We had a wonderful Uluru/Olgas day trip with Emu Run !!! It was a long day, but very enjoyable, comfortable bus ride and extremely informative. Tic and Jason were wonderful hosts and very funny !!! Lots of food was provided along the way, and the BBQ at Uluru at Sunset (accompanied by "fashionable adult beverages" ( Champagne) was awesome. Our group had a lot of laughs and interactions. Uluru was magical, as was the hike into the gorge at Kata Tjuta. We would recommend this tour !!!!!

“The best day tour we have ever been on!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We have been on many day tours around Australia and the world and this has been by far the best. We did the Uluru/Olgas day trip and MacDonald Ranges. Best value for money, fantastic staff whose knowledge was amazing, they were enteratining,nothing was a both, there relationship with the Indigeous Community was evident, We sha ll never forget the dreaming stories. We saw and learnt more than I ever imaged about Central Austalia. We were constantly being offered free food and lots of it! Thank You to our guides Jasonand Tony. Also to Denise who runs the office. Dont look anywhere else than this company!

“What a Great Day Out!!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

My wife and I booked a day trip from Alice to Uluru with Emu Run Tours. OK I thought at first it looked a bit pricey - but it turned out it was well worth it. Great tour guides in Tic and Colman - so well informed about the Fauna and Flora plus their knowledge of the Aboriginal customs and geology of the rock. From the moment we boarded the bus at 6.00 am through to returning at midnight it was a pleasure to be with them. On top of that a breakfast snack, lunch, and a Bar-B-Que dinner at Uluru was in the end good value for the day. Thanks Guys!!!

“Two trips with this company, both very good”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I did the West MacDonnell Ranges day tour with this company (guide: Clive) and the Uluru day trip (guides: Jason and GJ). The trips are well organized and I was glad I took both. The guides were very knowledgeable, informative and friendly. The Uluru trip was long but it didn't matter. The West MacDonnell ranges trip was awesome and not to be missed.
