Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Alice Springs to Uluru (Ayers Rock) One Way Shuttle. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Much better than hiring a car and driving. You get to see a lot more of the countryside and the driver provided some very good commentary.
I'm so glad we took the bus instead of the plane. It was 6 hours well spent. The driver was informative throughout the trip and there were enough stops to keep us comfortable. One highlight was riding a camel and then seeing Uluru appear over the sand dunes for the first time was very special. A great experience to learn of the history and watch the changing landscape go by. Yes, the plane would have been faster, but we'd have missed out on a lot if we'd not chosen to take the bus. The door to door service was also appreciated.
The guide was quite knowledgable about the story to tell along the way. The bus was comfortable, a bit cold on airconditioning but maybe it's because the airconditioning is maintained for the most people (I meant cocasian)...haha. Not really meant for Asian people.
If you have some time to get to Uluru, I recommend you to go by this tour bus. It will let you see a lot of what comes out from middle of oceanian continent. I was so amazed when I was taken to salt lake. It was an amazing and must see!
The bus trip was interesting, driver provided loads of relevant information and told us interesting stories. Stops along the way were appropriate.
Very comfortable trip. Beware the flies. Guide was very knowledgeable. Would recommend highly.
Would have liked to have stopped closer to Mt Conner or at Kata Juta for photos.
The driver was very good and her commentary was entertaining. The stops were well planned and there was enough time to have a cuppa, toilet, and photos of wildlife or scenery. They made good time to the destination although we were half an hour late being picked up in the morning (which was a bit annoying as it was a very early pick up, could have had another half hour in bed!)
Very satisfactory. Pick up at hotel and all stops on schedule. Interesting driver/guide. Comfortable bus.
Great trip really enjoyed the whole trip but especially the camel farm!!!!
Good driver, several stops for toilet and coffee.Everything ok.
Pick up was on time, driver courteous and safe. Commentary along the way was interesting and informative. Frequent stops enabled one to stretch legs and the trip seemed to go quickly.
Bus trip was excellent! Bus was on time at our apartment - frequent stops - driver knowledgeable and very chatty. Time passed very quickly. Great informative video on board too! Well worth the money!
Trip and stops and comments from Teena, the
driver/guide were excellent. The only thing was, that on arrival at Alice Springs, I found that the trip with the same company was offered for 20 AUD less.
The trip was bearable. Driver very informative and polite. Nice travel.
The description of the shuttle journey is accurate, friendly driver/guide.
This shuttle was far more practical for driving this long stretch.
The trip to Ayers Rock was great! However, we did find that everything was over priced from the food to the accommodations. It was nice having a driver take us there so we could sleep, but we had thought that we would get some more information while traveling there instead of just hearing stories and personal experiences.
The tour was a good way to get from Alice Springs to Yulara by road (without hiring a car). The bus departed at 6:30am (bit early in mid-winter!!) and called at 2 good road houses and a scenic lookout point along the way. The drivers commentary was interesting and well informed. Follow-on tours of Uluru and Kata Juta were available. We took longer day tours with another group, rather than these quick tours.
The driver was very friendly and helpful. Nice to be able to sit back and relax instead of having to hire a car for a long trip.
All I wanted was a ride to Uluru. It was alright. We saw some cool things along the way. I really wasn't expecting a tour.
The tour guide told us the exact same information on the way back.
Everything re bus trip was perfectly fine, well-timed breaks to stretch the legs etc, pleasant driver and arrived at Yulara Resort on time. Our only problem came with confirming our booking the day before (Sunday). I rang the number on the voucher, only to get a recorded message saying it was out of office hours and to ring from 9.00am Monday. The tour was due to start @ 7.00am Monday morning! I rang viator, who couldn't help me out either, she said we may have a case to get a refund. Which wasn't getting us to Uluru in time for a tour booked for Kings Canyon the next day. Luckily I had the original voucher (we were supposed to go originally). Obviously the 2 companies are connected as I ended up being able to confirm through them. Much relief!! But it caused considerable stress for quite a time. If I hadn't by chance taken the original voucher that I had printed, I am unsure what we would have done. It may be a good idea to warn customers of the office hours so that they can confirm their tour during office hours - less stress???
