What You Can Expect

Best of Ayers Rock: Sunset Uluru and Sunrise Kata Tjuta Small Group Tours

Kata Tjuta

The 36 red rock domes of Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and the massive monolith of Uluru (Ayers Rock) are Australia’s best-known natural attractions. During your stay at Ayers Rock Resort in the Red Centre (not included), see both sights on two separate 5-hour tours. Choose to take both tours in one day or spread them over two days. 

Following late afternoon pickup from your accommodation by air-conditioned 4WD, your guide leads your small group on a walking tour around Uluru. Afterward, you’re taken to a viewing spot to watch the brilliant hues of sunset reflect on this iconic landmark in Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Park. Enjoy appetizers with a glass of sparkling wine and snap plenty of photos before returning to nearby Ayers Rock Resort. 

The next morning, rise early to see Kata Tjuta at sunrise. As dawn breaks over the horizon, watch the rock domes dramatically change colors in the glow of the rising sun. After you’ve watched this astonishing light show, you’re served a picnic breakfast in Australia’s Outback, followed by hotel drop-off.

Please note: Each tour can be taken in the opposite order; if visiting Kata Tjuta first, be sure to stay overnight at Ayers Rock Resort the night before (accommodation is not included).

Would highly recommend both trips. Very efficient - collected on time and all was exactly as described. Very good guides, knowledgeable and made it fun. Comfortable transport and most importantly small groups. My morning tour consisted of 5 and my afternoon of 3 including me so it was almost like a private tour. Would use this company again.

First rate tour. Guide Jamie was knowledgable, enthusiastic and informative. "Gourmet nibbles" were limited to bread with dukkah (nice but sparse) and the sparkling wine was "el cheapo". Otherwise terrific; tour highly recommended.

A great way to see Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta. Nice mini bus...small waiting for a large group to get on and off. Our guide was excellent and shared with us stories of the indigenous people and information about their culture. Very respectful of the land. One note...take bug spray!!!!

It was the best moment in Australia. The guides are very friendly and nice. They led us beautiful places. Especially when we visited Kata Tjuta, there's nobody but us and we could see a wallaby, camel and rabbits there. It was really special experience.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2012

Both tour guides where great. Uluru guide was Aborigine and told us all the stories behind the sides and drawings. Sunset with Snacks and Champane was wonderful. The second guide at Kata Tjuata was more focused on the nature, eg explanation of plants. Breakfast in the Outback was great!

This is the best guided tour in Australia. The guide are very knowledgeable, kind and patient. They tried their best to meet every one's expectation. The group is small in size therefore the guide can pay attention to every one. They cook breakfast and bake bread for the tour, too.

This was without doubt the best tour we took at Uluru. The guides James, Sarah and Keily were first rate. The locations that they took us to to view the sunrise and sunset were not crowded and the guides clearly knew their subject matter and were enthusiastic about it.
