We needed a tour that would get us from Alice Springs to Ayers Rock and allow us to explore the rock. This one fit the bill nicely. It's a long, approximately 6-hour journey from Alice Springs to Ayers Rock on one long straight road through the desert with a couple of stops. One stop allows you to ride a camel, which I thoroughly recommend! The driver was quite informative, giving you information as you go. The sightseeing around the Olgas and Ayers Rock was great. The sunset and sunrise were a really memorable experience. We also enjoyed the partial hike around the base of the rock, for which the bus driver tells you about the Dreamtime Aboriginal stories related to the rock. Our only disappointment is that we thought the tour might be lead by an Aborigine, but we only saw a few the entire time we were in Ayers Rock.
There was not much to see along the way, but the bus driver was great.
The rock was much less than expected but perhaps that is because I come from Arizona and we have the Red Rock area of Sedona, far more spectacular, and the Grand Canyon. The tour was boring. So we just skipped the morning part. Worst of all we were not aware that booking the outback pioneer meant walking a long distance outdoors to a toilet. We paid to upgrade. So do not book the outback if you don't want to walk in the dark to facilities!
