Great being in a small group rather than the big buses you see carting tourists around. Excellent guide. Highly recommended.

This was a lovely trip and the guide was extremely informative. It was a very hot day and she made sure everyone was safe on the walk to the gorge. We were able to modify the trip so that everyone got to enjoy the walk, even the least fit. Sylvia was our guide, she was enthusiastic, caring and full of good information. I really enjoyed the trip.

Really small group tour, because there were only two people, me and my guide (Jess)!! haha She was extremely friendly, and made me feel at home. Although I was more than 30 minutes late (sorry Jess...), she was very kind and welcoming. Kata Tjuta itself was plain amazing as well. Highly recommended!!

Our guide was very laid back and informative. Lots of tales and info given en route. The walk was unbelievable and so awesome in the original meaning of the word. Local stories about the formation of the rocks much more inspiring than geographical ones! A great trip at the fantastic Ayers Rock.

Excellent tour guide and experience. Small group of eleven which ensured personal attention. Very informative trip to our destination including Abroginal culture and their history over the thousands of years in the red centre. Then arriving at Kata Tjuta (Olgas) we were met with a magnificent scene of a harsh landscape and a breathtaking valley within the Katta Tjuta. On our two kilometre walk through the valley the tour guide, Stacey, made her way to every person in the tour discoursing history and answering a multitude of questions. Stacey was also concerned and monitored every one of us as to our health and capacity to walk the journey over the uneven earth along the valley floor. It was most reassuring. We had plenty of photo shoots and plenty of time to absorb the views and significance of the Kata Tjuta. I would reccommend very highly this tour and our tour guide Stacey.

Great watching the sun rise over this beautiful scenery.The short walk that followed breakfast could be challenging for some due to the rocky terrain underfoot however the vbiews were well worth the effort.

Enjoyed the commentary while in the van. The guide Ryan was very friendly and patient with our team different skill levels. Liked where we were taken for our walk. Thought it was a little pricey for what you got and wish there was a one day park pass option I realize this isn't the tours fault.

Excellent walking tour of the Wolpa Gorge and nice drive through the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Our guide was very informative and our very small group learned a lot about the area and the native inhabitants, wild life and plants. Make sure you wear good, sturdy sneakers, bring plenty of water, and bug repellent! Our guide did have a water jug to replenish our smaller bottles and he carried a natural bug repellent cream as well. Others on our tour had hats with mesh but we were not quite that prepared but given the fact that our one piece of checked luggage didn't get on our flight, we had to make due with the items we had in our carry on. If you are going to take this tour, make sure sneakers, and bug spray are in your carry-on! This tour got back in time for us to make the Sounds of Silence Dinner pick-up and it was a very informative, moderately strenuous introduction to the Outback.
