Brilliant night out. Worth every penny, which is more than I can say about the resort...
As far as we can tell from guides etc. this was better value than the Sounds of Silence, and somewhat better quality food (we preferred the more substantial BBQ at long tables). It was slightly confusing having booked on-line, as no-one seemed to know which tour this was. But worked well, food quality and guides good.
Great sunset viewing area and refreshments. Good BBQ and well attentive staff. Very informal evening but really enjoyable.Enjoyed the talk about the stars.
Excellent experience, food was great, got to meet some interesting people, not to mention the stunning views....
We were unsure whether to book the full meal or this BBQ. We were pleased that we chose to go for this one. It's very good value for money and watching the sunset over Ayers Rock was an experience not to be missed.
The tour was great the viewing spot was good not too crowded the barbecue in the shadows of Uluru was relaxed and there was no shortage of food , the star talk was good as well . It is a must!
It was a good experience the view of the "rock" and later on the BBQ dinner.
The only sort of regret is that there were so many people at the rock viewing point that it was not a moment of quietness. But, hey, it is a tourist attraction, right?
Thanks for the guides, the driver,the food and all.
Fantastic. yes the sky was completely overcast with no stars in sight but that is the weather. The guides did their best to tell stories to make up for this and the BBQ was great. Highly recommended.
fantastic, staff are brilliant,food beautiful. Highly recommended, loved every minute.
We were not sure what to expect from this, given that it would be a very large group of people, so we were pleasantly surprised at the outcome. We were given nearly an hour to appreciate the changing colors of Uluru leading up to sunset, aided by cheese and wine to tide us over to dinner. The dinner itself was absolutely sumptuous, very delicious, and it was very enjoyable to meet others on the tour. After dinner, our driver gave us a wonderful and entertaining tour of the stars. Save your money--don't bother with the expensive Sounds of Silence dinner. It couldn't be any better than this!
wonderful experience. the guides were very nice and knowledgable. The bbq dinner was delicious and the stargazing was amazing.
The staff were all really friendly, the food was great, and the stars were amazing!! I've never seen the night sky so clear in my life!
friendly people - just make you melt in the outback from joy
View magnificent, food superb, well organized trip, Highly recommended.
It was 4.5 - Awesome would do it again! They need lap blankets for the last bit though as it was very cold. Only complaint, we sat there for 30 mins only to miss the bus! How? Because the tour name on the bus did not match the Viator name, company rep was very rude, but the hotel got us fixed up!
It was a lovely sunset view, a bit cloudy that day for best light, but still. The wine and snacks were perfect. It was nice to be so close to Uluru as we enjoyed the barbecue. It was good. The stars were unbelievable clouds cleared , but I wanted a bit more time seeing them and learning about the constellations. Great tour.
A lovely tour and a great way to end the day. Although we had a great time, I would say the tour is expensive. Canapés consisted of carrots, cucumber and Doritos. Food at the BBQ spot was good. Star gazing was lovely but very rushed.
The arrangements, food and staff were good but the overcast sky meant that we didn't see the sunset or stars.
The tour was really a bargain. Pick-up was flawless, snacks and wine watching the sunset, then a (surprisingly) wonderful BBQ dinner with Steak, Chicken, Shrimp, Kangaroo, and all the fixings. You won't go hungry. Unlimited beer and bine, also. Watching the stars come out was breathtaking...last time I saw the Milky Way that Milky was from the top of Mauna Kea. Would have given them 5 stars had we spent less time at the sunset and more time looking at the stars. Wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
Wonderful night - great food and the star gazing after was a nice treat. Recommend this tour - even as a solo traveller.
Good points.Picked up from hotel,went to the viewing area.Saw the sunset.Taken to the Visitors Centre where the BBQ was already set up.Very professional service.Plenty to eat and drink.Finally the guide spoke enthusiastically about the stars
Bad points.Don't expect Patrick Moore standard
it was lovely. Plenty of food. The driver Tony and tour guide Ryan wereexcellent! Some people didn't like the music on the way home but I thought it was good however the sound system in AAT Kings bus was very tinny! Thank you for a great evening!
We had a wonderful evening for this tour and really enjoyed it. The sunset cocktails were great and the food at the dinner was wonderful. We had no trouble with flies or any other critters. The only negative was that while waiting for sunset there were no chairs provided and we were there for an extended period of time.
The organisation was flawless. The food was excellent and the stargazing, albeit elementary, reminded me of Devon when I was a child when there was less light pollution.in England at night. Their seemed to be a maze of cloying political correctness surrounding the aborigine/traditional owner/indigenous peoples emanating from the European descendant guides, which made one nervous for fear of offending them. No such concern from the aborigines themselves where the social interaction was no nonsense, plain speaking and enjoyable.
