We had a wonderful evening. Met two very lovely and hilarious northern Irish ladies. Great Craic! Would highly recommend it!

This tour was one of the highlights of the 3 months we spent in Australia. The only negative was the flies which are a bit beyond your control.

Anyone who spends the time and money to travel to Uluru and does not go to this dinner will have missed a truly wonderful experience. The service, the food, the social experience and most of all the emotional aspect of this dinner all combine to make it a delightful evening. Do not miss it!

This is where I checked off "seeing the Southern Cross" from my bucket list! We had such an enjoyable evening and recommend that if you make it as far as Ayers Rock, then you absolutely must book the Sounds of Silence dinner. I am a bit picky with what I will eat so Kangaroo and Crocodile were avoided but there was plenty to drink and eat of all sorts; however, you do not attend this dinner for the food. Make plans to attend if you have a desire to see stars and a part of the universe you can not normally see if you live in the northern hemisphere or in any city where there is simply too much light. The astronomers were informative and we learned how to find land (sky)marks in the southern sky. There is a good telescope to see things up close once the lecture is over. On our remaining nights in Australia and New Zealand, we were able to find the stars, galaxies, and planets that we learned about at the dinner. This is a MUST DO on your visit to Ayers Rock.

Excellent evening and easy to chat to people only just met for that night. No problems with catering for vegetarians. Great time.

Staggeringly beautiful surroundings in which to dine! We will never forget this experience. Sunset over the Olgas was magic and Uluru was awesome, even in the distance. The meal itself was delicious; the hosts were great; service was great (my wine glass was never empty) and we LOVED it- thank you!

This was the most romantic, fun and beautiful dinning experience. we have never seen so many stars in our life and the food was great! When you get dropped off by the buses you are greeted with champagne to walk down to the area where they have an open bar and you watch the sunset.

If anyone is going to Ayres Rock then I would definitely recommentd this. Everything was excellently handled, food was good and the staff were very attentive. Not many stars out that night as cloudy but that couldn't be helped.

Amazing, unique setting. Opening champagne reception well done. Good photo ops. Star-gazing talk fascinating. Buffet meal quite good. Would have liked more didgeridoo music.

One of my most favorite memories: sitting in total silence and listening to nature, watching the stars. Everything was perfect from beginning to end, the food was impeccable and the service amazing. Word of caution: turn your light low to distract the bugs.
