What a great night, everything I imagined it would be, food, wine, company made the night wonderful. Having an astrologist there made it very interesting, showing us were all the stars were and being able to look at satin and it's rings through a telescope was just amazing.
This tour was great! But if you go during August - wear something warm!! Temperature drops and you will freeze you butt off. Overall, it was great. I was offered drink after drink till I felt nice and warm. The food wasn't bad for a Buffet at all. I highly recommend. The view of Uluru was amazing. Not sure if I would do the Camel ride in. Saw that while we were waiting for dinner... we just did it the next day. Just take the bus in with the tour... lol
This comes highly recommended by us. Brilliant tour. Well organised and a unique experience. Tour guides very helpful, placed at tables with 'like minds'. Food good - a must do!
My first sight of the milky way and what a way to do it. Indulgent certainly. But worth it.
Magical experience having dinner overlooking Uluru. Enjoyed the presentations of the aboriginal dancers and astronomer. Good variety of food.
Beautiful location, amazing atmosphere. Food was good but not great, plenty of wine. Still loved it!
What a beautiful way to experience the Desert a cloudy sunset but it didn't spoil the atmosphere that is created by wonderful atentative staff.the meal was plentiful and the wine was superb ...the cultural dance and star talker where perfect for the night entertainment the only draw back it went too quickly.
An absolute Must for visitors. Very yummy Buffet and a nice and entertaining evening.
It was a balmy warm evening when we arrived at the pre dinner drinks area. We had time for photos including a dingo skirting around us and were accompanied by a didgeridoo player which created a wonderful "outback" feeling. The colours at dusk are amazing. We were seated considerately; a few aboriginal men all painted up wandered about in the semi-darkness and spooked us a bit. The buffet dinner was copious and to a good standard considering the remote location. It was great to have a little talk about the southern night sky to add to the evening's enjoyment and meaningfulness. I don't think anyone was happy to leave that place!.
Do not miss this experience. The meal was top quality, great selection, three courses, even finished off with a port. Alcohol flowed freely from the welcoming bubbles to the end port. Wine and beer was available.
We were lucky to have a Scottish couple and four Americans. Conversation flowed and every one had something to say. The overseas tourists all seemed to have had a great time while they were here.
Service was top notch and the session on the stars very informative without being too technical. A great presentation with the offer to view the constellations through telescopes at the end.
A must to do at the rock. Food excellent,sky amazing, staff so friendly and information regarding stars very informative. Drink flower easily. Good value for money
Despite initial reservations about the Sounds of Silence dinner after reading many reviews, I must say that we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The food was plentiful and wine flowed freely. Although a cloudy evening, the star talk was still informative.
Yes there are some cheesy statements, and the aboriginal dancing during the welcome canapés a bit staged, but we were lucky to have a great crowd on our table (didn't know any of them before) and had great conversation throughout the evening.
Overall a great evening - helped by good company and wine!
We were lucky enough to usher in 2014 at the Sounds of Silence. The experience was a true highlight of our trip to the Red Centre. We overheard some negative comments about the quality of the food, but both my husband and I thought it was fantastic, especially given that one is in the middle of nowhere. The Barramundi filets were very tasty as were the fresh veggies. Wine flowed freely although the red was hot (as was the climate!), the white was chilled. The best part of the evening for me was the Star Gazer. One has never experienced stars and blackness and....silence...as we experienced that night.
Stargazing was the highlight!! Just plain amazing. Although the variation was limited, the food was really good as well. Highly recommended.
This was an amazing experience. From the moment we got off the bus to go to the dining location up to the last minute of the evening, everything was superb. Would recommend it to everyone.
Fantastic! This is a once in a life time experience. Beautiful sunset from the Uluru. Exciting welcome champagne. Delicious dinner star talk guide was expertise on the orbit, planet and galaxy. The deegeridoo
playing in the background. I would love to re-visit on my next trip. Again, thanks Viator's tour arrangement.

What can I say, this was not only a chance to meet and make friends from around the world, but the evening was one of our travelling highlights. Well prepared,laid out and organised. The food was good and diverse, but the outstanding part was the very educational but fun star gazing . Would recommend to all visitors.
The sense of occasion grows as the sun sets on Uluru, the didgeridoo playing commences and the secrets of the night sky are revealed. A wonderful evening awaits you, from the generosity of drink to the amazingly different and delicious buffet - don't miss this gem in the desert.
