We had an excellent guide in Andrew, he's funny, lovely and very informative of Uluru stories. We had a morning tea before the sunrise, plenty of time at a great location to watch and photo the sunrise. After sunrise, we had a pleasant walk around the base, Uluru climb was close due to wind but we enjoyed the walk and the visit to cultural centre to finish the morning is great.
Doing what: Uluru Sunrise Tour from Ayers Rock
Sunrise, sunset or anytime of the day, both Kata Tjuta and Ayers Rock are beautiful sights to behold.
We enjoyed the nibbles before dinner, as well as the BBQ dinner and the breakfast at the Cultural Centre very much. There was more than sufficient food and they taste great.
Our guide was very good too and he proved knowledgable as we were star-gazing after the dinner.
My first suggestion would be for the guide to warn that the hike up Kata Tjuta would not be easy for the elderly. He had said that even the old should not find the walk difficult but the walk was filled with slopes, rocks and stones and there were not hand railings for those who may need them.
My second suggestion would be for the company to provide fly nettings as some of us joined the sunset tour immediately upon arrival and did not have the time to buy the net nor the information on where to get it.
great tours. everything was organized well. Both experiences worthwhile and we were very impressed tha the information on the tours did not include any duplication. Your site was awesome as we saved, and got great value. We even had time in the cultural center.
Well worth waking up before sunrise to experience Ayers Rock as it comes alive in the morning light. The breakfast at the cultural center was very good and the guides were interesting and informative. Only the flies were a bummer, they are everywhere. The short walk around part of the base allowed time to hear interesting cultural stories and the drive around the base gave time to really see it close up. The Olgas walk was long, but you could turn back at any point. Great views. The sunset view of Ayers Rock was quite nice, but the BBQ dinner and stargazing was excellent, a real highlight. Wonderful food, drink, a fun atmosphere and the stars...amazing!
Great memorable trip despite the negative issues. The tour guides Jules and Stevo were friendly and good. The main negative is that we spent only 4 rushed hours at Uluru. The cultural centre was disappointing with no interaction with any aboriginal people. The tour vehicle had an inefficient aircon so that it was cooler with the windows open than with the air conditioner on. With temperatures in the 30s this was not a comfortable trip.
