Well-planned itinerary which gives good experience of the "red center". Great sunset (wine table) and sunrise viewings. AAT Kings is a well-organized tour operator with comfortable buses and capable driver/guides. Special mention for driver Phil, good English easy to understand, with excellent knowledge of flora, fauna and indigenous customs, the Kings Canyon floor walk was a pleasure.
It isn't clear what "Budget Accomadation" at Kings Canyon means -- shared accomodation is not really shared, it is a room with no facilities, the toilet and washroom is 20meters away in a separate block. Really for backpackers, which the descriptiom doesn't make clear.

Loved the Sunrise at Uluru and the sunset too. On different days. At the sunrise they had hot drinks and cookies. At the sunset wine and chips and dips. So unexpected and well done. Totally enjoyed the hikes through the canyon and outback. The guide was so knowledgeable and answered all questions. We also saw a demonstration by Aboriginese on the use of tools and other implements. Just fascinating. I also purchased an original painting. Just beautiful. Great trip. Well planned and run. The Hotels were also great. No complaints had a great time.

Excellent tour that provides the opportunity to admire both the natural wonders of Red Centre and the aboriginal culture. Kings Canyon offer the most spectacular views.

The trip to Kata Juka and Ayers Rock on the the second day of the tour was wonderful. The Rock is quite a sight and the guide who conducted the tour of the base was outstanding. We enjoyed seeing Kata Juka almost more than Ayers Rock. The King's Canyon tour was equally as interesting and the sights just as awesome. The two hotels (Sails in the Desert and the King's Canyon Lodge) were both as good as described with beautiful rooms and comfortable beds. Unfortunately the area is in the middle of nowhere and, as a result, the food was outrageously expensive though it was good.

Tony, the guide, was very knowledgeable about aboriginal culture which made the tour a success. The accommodation was great and the evening in Kings Canyon most entertaining. However, we sat out on our balcony to enjoy the sunset and the arrogant neigbours started smoking which sent us indoors. Smoking should be banned in and around the units. There is plenty of space in the wilderness where the smokers to go. The walk along on the Kings Canyon river bed was magnificient with all the wild flowers in bloom.

Even when cloudy, the grandeur of Kata Tjuta and Uluru are impressive. The ATA King team was excellent throughout. The "budget" accommodation were fine, especially since there was almost no time to spend in them--there was always someplace to go or to be.

Amazing locations, knowledgable and interesting tour guide. Acommodation OK, but make sure you specify twin or double rooms at Kings Canyon resort - my son and daughter would not share a bed and the only option was to upgrade.

Well organized trip, with pick-up from hotel in Alice, transfers etc. running smoothly by a team that knew what they were doing.

While some of the included walks could have been more challenging, overall impression of the itinerary was good. The snacks and drinks for sunset was a lifesaver. However, the constant droning about holy this and sacred that, particularly on the Ayers Rock section, got old quickly. Once regarding photo ban is enough.Same goes for the not climbing rock stuff. Say what you need, do it one once and be done with it.
