What You Can Expect
After hotel pick up from Ayers Rock Resort, travel with your guide in an air-conditioned Mercedes Benz Sprinter through the stunning desert landscape of the Red Centre.
Drive about 45 minutes into Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park where Australian native animals including kangaroos and perentie lizards can sometimes be spotted.
When you arrive at Kata Tjuta, your guide leads you on an informative 1.5-mile (2.5km) walk through Walpa Gorge. Learn about the geology of the 36 dome-shaped rock formations that make up Kata Tjuta and admire the sheer scale of the red rock walls that surround you. Hear the wind (walpa) far above and marvel at this ancient place that is sacred to the local Aboriginal people.
After approx. 90 minutes exploring the gorge, your guide returns you to your Ayers Rock Resort accommodation.
This tour was amazing!
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.

We found the small group tour really good for us and we would recommend it to others.
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.
Very beautiful walk. Not nearly as long as Urluru. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. They made the trip very pleasant and interesting.
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.
