The tour was convenient and Dan, our guide, did a great job. We had wonderful views of Uluru during the sunrise, had a nice breakfast of fruit toast and cereal, and then learned some of the local geography prior to taking a hike at Kata Tjuta. We saw a couple of kangaroos as well!

What an amazing experience, the Sunrise at Kata Tjuta was awesome being in a small group made it very special. Trevor the tour leader was so informative and I doubt there are many with as much knowledge on the area as him. It was the perfect sunrise, we arrived at Walpa gorge before any other group, so we saw Kangaroos, the gorge was very windy and the track is bumpy but well worth it. After the walk a great breakfast was served, so we sat eating as massive bus loads of people all went up the gorge together. Size does matter and in this case the small group size was a Huge bonus. Everyone should experience the Kata Tjuta national park at least once in there lives, I gave the trip to Ayres Rock to my Mother In Law for her 80th birthday and she has not stop raving about it. I also found the staff at Viators very helpful.

Thoroughly recommend this excursion. Guide was fun and informative and the small group a nice experience. Wonderful site to visit

4 star rating: Recommended September 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed; however, I didn't have access to the park with my booking, and had to pay an extra $25.00. This should automatically be done when I book the tour.
