Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the 3-Day Tour from Uluru (Ayers Rock) to Alice Springs via Kings Canyon. 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.
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.
I had a great time, visiting in May 2013. The tour was very well organized and the guide knowledgeable, but you don't necessarily stay with the same guide the whole tour. I was a little nervous when I arrived as I wasn't sure about the schedule or confident that I was being picked up at the airport. But the tour company met the plane and it was easy to get bussed to the hotel. Once at the hotel, the hotel called the company to confirm my schedule. Once I had the schedule, I was set. Day One included a walk around Olga (watch out for the flies, they are out in force!) and a sunset viewing of Uluru. One thing, there is an evening dinner in Uluru park that wasn't included as part of this tour. I added it on and it was worth it. Seeing the stars at night in the desert was an experience. Next morning, up early to see Uluru at sunset and then walk around the base, finishing at a cultural center. Then I was off to King's Canyon, arriving in the evening. Next morning, walk around King's Canyon. You can choose to walk the rim, more difficult and longer, or the base. I chose the base walk. I added on a 15 minute helicopter tour which was great. Finally, the bus headed off to Alice Springs. In retrospect, I wouldn't have gone ton to Alice Springs. It's a long way on a bus and there's little to do there. Note, if you want to return to Uluru, it should be possible as the bus stops to exchange passengers, some go on to Alice springs and some return to Uluru. All my friends have asked me if it was worth the trip to Uluru and I say very much so. Yes, you can only take so many pictures of a big rock in the desert, but the views and landscape are amazing, and the overall experience of being in the remote desert and understanding the importance of Uluru to the aboriginal people really made my trip to Australia complete.
Great tour guide and driver but avoid Alice Springs as the locals are drunk and violent! Ayers rock resort and kings canyon resort are very expensive for food.
The tour was wonderful. The company that was chosen by viator in Ayers Rock was second to none. The driver/guide was terrific, he had a sense of humour and was very friendly and informative. The hotels were both very acceptable and the tours (sunset, walks, sunrise, king's canyon walk etc.) were all wonderful.
I have one issue to discuss which started off the tour on a bad note. when we arrived at the airport, there was no one to pick us up. I failed to advise you people of my arrival information. However, I feel that the tour company should have contacted me by email to find out my flight details. Also, I was not given the names of the hotels I was staying at in advance so I did not know which hotel to go to when I was offered a free shuttle ride from the airport to my hotels. Also, I should have been given a detailed itinerary in advance, which was not provided.
Other than that one issue, everything was terrific.
