5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2013

Absolutely beautiful! The people were very friendly. The Sound of Silence Dinner was an awesome experience. We went to Australia to get on a cruise for Australia and New Zealand. The best part of the entire vacation was our trip to Cairns, Ayers Rock, Olgas, and the Sounds of Silence.

The tour was great, the driver/giude provided loads of information that totally enhanced the experience, especially with regards to indigenous culture and geographical aspects. Unfortuantely, the Sounds of Silence Dinner was irresponsibly organised. It was freezing. Like, really, really cold. To cold to appreciate the excellent food and setting. We caught colds, which developed into flu. I believe there were ponchos for those of sitting on the periphery, but they were not announced, and not made readily available. Other than that, the tour was great.
