Hello fellow travellers,
My friend and I took this tour. It was absolutely brilliant. It's such a breathetaking and interesting site. The climb although challenging at times, was well managed by our guide. Our driver 'Beau' and guide 'Caity' were awesome, highly informative and fun to share the day with. We had the best day... I highly recommend taking this tour with the local tour operator and Viator. It was truly an amazing experience. Thank you.

AMAZING! Spectacular views, great history, and awesome to get to see more of the NT landscape with the distance between everything. Driving back to Ayers Rock resort was great too, as you get to see Uluru appear on the horizon. The rim walk is definitely worth the climb.

Amazing!! even though it got up around 40, the walk was stunning as long as you had sufficient water! Beautiful views and Joanna was an amazing tour guide!! well worth every penny spent!! MUST DO the long 6km walk if you're able to physically :) can't wait to come back and do the 22km walk!!

this hike was awesome, the views were great, the guide was great, and it wasn't too tough. I went during the summer and the weather was hot, but so dry that the temperatures really didn't seem bad at all.

The 500 step climb to the rim of the canyon is a challenge but once there it was amazing and well worth the climb. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. It is a long drive from Urulu but well worth the effort. The walk around the rim of the Canyon is splendid and you get the most amazing views.

Long day and an early start - but well worth it. Absolutely stunning. We did the rim walk 6.5km. Would do it again tomorrow. Guides again were fantastic, great breakfast at the station. Even had a camel burger for lunch which was also great. Highly recommended.

Fabulous day. A very early start but well worth the trip. Kings Canyon was awesome and doing the rim walk was incredible. Its 500 steps up to start but after that it was quite reasonable going. The views are amazing. My friend did the walk around the bottom of the canyon and said it was an amazing experience.

We did the 3 hour rim walk and the scenery is most wonderful - a must see! After the first 500 steps, the walk actually was not too difficult - We are very glad it's May and the weather was just right for the walk - in summer (Dec - Feb) probably the walk would be close due to the heat, Our guide Nick and Nathan are excellent. After the walk, we relaxed at the resort and have lunch, on the way back, we had the chance to view Mt Currie and the salt lake and a stopover to a station - a 600 km plus round trip of over 12 hours - a very worthy trip - very memorable.

The view was just amazing. About 17 people out of 20 chose to do the rim walk. Some people seemed really tired after the walk, but I definitely recommend the rim walk.

Guide Gary was informative and respectful.Riverbed walk was perfect pace.Helicopter ride after was worth it.(Friend did rim walk said was challenging -she hikes all the time- and no option for copter).Could have sped up b-fast with scrambled eggs so enough time to check out ranch and animals.

Perfect way to get to Alice Spring AND see Kings Canyon without having to do all the driving. Breakfast and cold water was provided which was super helpful.

Very enjoyable tour!Early start 4:15 a.m. pickup but very full day across the Australian desert.King's Canyon was awesome,don't regret postponing a trip to the Grand Canyon.Knowladgeable guides,conveniently ending in Alice Springs.A bit of confusion finding my Bed and Breakfast at the end of the tour but the driver made an effort and got me there.I little disappointed the tour with the Alice Springs option could not be purchased with the Sightseeing Pass.

A long day in the bus but worth the effort - breakfast was appreciated. Be aware that full rim walk closed if temp too high. But half rim walk still provides some great views. You can take your time and still enjoy it all. The stops on the return trip were als enjoyable

Excellent tour from organisation to the professionalism of the guides. This could have been a long day however the driver kept all entertained and provided a insight into life in the desert. Good stuff.
