This was my first time into the central Australian desert, and I could not have hoped for a better introduction. Since I have a slight disability, I was worried whether I would be able to do the walking but in fact it was the walking I enjoyed most, and the distances, grades and times allowed were just right. Also, for someone who likes a drink (but not too much), the sunset drinks at Uluru were just what I needed. Apart from the walking, the detour to King's Canyon in your huge bus expertly driven by Jenny, together with Jenny's expert guided tour up the canyon, were again perfect. I felt a new man afterwards!
Very good organized tour, timing well respected. Comfortable busses. Interresting journey. But as french speaking people we did not understand all the explanations that were given by our guides. Would it be possible that AAT Kings provide a summary of the different points of interest - in french for example ? May be also in other languages .? .. Or videos with subtitels or headphones ? Best regards.
Brilliant drivers and guides and amazing hotels, Maria the driver was the best! Could do with a bit of a longer base waslk around uluru though. Commentary was great and we learnt loads and saw wildlife.
The tour was everything we wanted and gave us the opportunity to see Uluru at sunset and sunrise, The Kings canyon (The rim edge walk is a must!) and get to Alice Springs in time for a sunset on Anzac Hill and the Royal Flying Doctor Museum the following day (not included in tour price). The tours guides are great and provided just enough info upfront with opportunity to ask for more later. The only comment I would make is that the tour ended in Alice on the evening of the 3rd day but bizarrely did not include a hotel that night. No problem for us but perhaps puts people off this otherwise excellent tour
We had a beautyfull stay. Hotel, walks and all was perfect. Our meanguide Karl (Driver and .......)
was a real specialist and he told us a lot of interestid things . Congratulation also to the other guides in Uluru!
The days are more than Five stars!!
Great tour including Uluru, Kings Canyon and Alice Springs on a lovely big and comfortable coach. Very informative and friendly driver (John) and guides throughout. We had the choice to join in some group activities or do our own thing. We stayed in the deluxe accommodation at Uluru and Kings Canyon and enjoyed all the amenities. Staff, food and lodging all very good. Try the kangaroo skewers and the camel burgers.
Outstanding tour. Highly recommend this tour. Our flight into Ayers Rock was one hour late, bot AAT KING a
Was there waiting for us. They caught us up to the tour coach. Perfect in all regards.
The lodging was good and the tours were excellent. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate for the sunset or sunrise over Ayers Rock. The additional sights on both those tours were very good and recommended. Personally, I would have added another day at Ayers Rock. There is so much there to absorb and see. Many other tours are also offered once you arrive and more time is needed to take some of them. The 3 day trip is well planned, but 4 days would be preferred. Or maybe even more.
the tour was very organize, hotels where clean and nice. the tour guides, driver vere very courtgeous and alway on time. The places they took as where carefully chosen. I really recomend the tour. Even though the weather was extreme, 39 degrees celcius the volume of people was nice.
Sehr empfehlenswert; war ein tolles Erlebnis dass ich nicht missen moechte, stunning adventure - highly recommended
Excellent tour starting with a meet and greet at the airport with a personalised programme. We were three days with our guide Michael and he was outstanding. With hindsight we should have selected a hotel a grade above the Desrt Garde..
Our walk around the Kings Canyon rim was superb in no small measure due to our guide, Rowan, who was absolutely outstanding.
Our tour guide was interesting, knowledgeable and entertaining. We enjoyed our tour of Ayers Rock and learned much about the Outback and the creation beliefs of the Aboriginal people. Great tour. Thanks.
Fantastic tour. We chose the deluxe option and the hotels were good, especially the Kings Canyon Resort. We enjoyed the spectacular views of Uluru and Kings Canyon. Be aware that there is a lot of coach travel involved, but the guide we had made it very enjoyable and added to the experience.
Excellent Tour content and activities for those 3 days. We enjoyed the Professional attitude and comments of our AAT guides - special mention for the ULURU Sunset drinks: that was just great ! Just a little disappointment for the King's Canyon park ranger who put some kind of "speed-up" pressure during our trail.
