Fantastic experience! Although it was a quick trip, everything was smooth as could be. Both the tour of Uluru and Kata Tjuta were amazing experiences. Uluru was majestic and one of the greatest things I have ever witnessed. It was a truly magical place for me as it was something I have always wanted to see since I was a small boy. The guides were very knowledgeable and were quick to answer any questions. The room accommodation was ok and had the basics you'd need for an overnight stay. The staff everywhere at the hotel were also very friendly and helpful, which to me also aided the experience that much more. I had a fantastic time and only wished my vacation was longer so I could have spent more time out there. Highly recommend it if you can find some time.
This tour was outstanding. We did see a lot and the mos beautiful sites!
The tour spread over the 2 days was great. To see Uluru at sunset and again at sunrise was pure magic.
Our driver/guide had an extensive knowledge which he shared with us. To be recommended
Wow - we saw everything and more we could possibly wish for on this whirlwind trip, which was perfectly organised with uber friendly staff. Thank you to the whole team!
Great organization and informed guides! Be prepared for the weather and carry water (it was 106F when we walked the 2.5km return trip to Kata Tjuta waterhole). The sunset watching party was great with snacks and wine/soft drinks provided. There are free shuttles to/from the airport from the resort throughout the day - you are not constrained to the AAT shuttle bus. That will help in flight planning.
It was a great tour. Very well organized and very well run.
Would highly recommend.
