I really enjoyed this journey. The logistics all worked perfectly but it was the driver Brian who made it with is perfectly pitched commentary which was informative, friendly and not intrusive. I really learned a lot and felt he loved and understood this part of Australia. Oh and at the end he dropped everyone off at their respective hotels. Great service with minimum fuss.
ATP staff were very helpful in locating a camera left on the coach and transported it to Darwin for us. Thank you.
Fantastic service. Quick, efficient and on time. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone and would certainly use the service again myself if I was ever in the Ayers Rock region again!!
The bus was very comfortable and the journey of six hours seemed to pass remarkably swiftly, even though there were only two stops. An excellent film on desert wildlife was presented during the second half of our journey which helped to while away the time. But all in all, the trip was relaxing and enabled one to take in the vastness of the desert we were travelling through.
Although our flight out from Alice Springs to Uluru was quicker and cheaper, the bus trip proved to be a memorable experience. The coach was clean uncrowded and comfortable, the driver pleasant knowledgeable and communicative. We found the trip most interesting and an easy way to see the desert at first hand
A good way to see the Outback. Both drivers were informative and helpful and in John's case downright funny. Staff at Alice Springs retrieved a lost sweater and returned it to me at the Tourist Bureau within 10 minutes. Kudos!
Excellent Service, Bus was right on time. Good commentary by bus drivers. We changed buses along the way. I left my camera on the bus and within 48 hours I had it back. Good help by girls on phone when I rang. Lovely girl in Alice Springs delivered my camera back to me on the Monday. Great Service. Would definately travel with you again.
Great trip!! Driver was very informative and it was just nice to sit back and enjoy the sights. Wish that we could have stopped at Kings Canyon and if done again would include that in the trip. Enjoyed the one stop at the roadside cafe.
Both parts were absolutely full of info and nice impressions. Sometimes a bit difficult to understand, because I'm not a native English speaker, but after few minutes - no more problems to copy everything.
It was the cheapest way I could find from Ayers Rock to Alice Springs. There was a ton of commentary. The driver constantly talked. It would've actually been nicer without it.
The AAT Kings bus ride from Uluru to Alice Springs is a long (5-6 hours) but interesting way to see the Outback. There are a couple of rest stops, but you're not forced to spend time in tourist traps. If you have a full day, you may want to consider doing the Kings Canyon day trip. You can leave from Uluru, stop at Kings Canyon, and then end the day in Alice Springs. It means leaving in the morning instead of mid-day, but you get to see Kings Canyon.
Bus was comfortable, Both female drivers were very informative. Especially Kerrin, who really seemed to enjoy her job. That showed and her enthousiasm was catching. The views were great, so it was a wonderful way to experience the outback in a relaxed way.
The driver gave us a good insight into the people and countryside. Much better option than self drive.
Great ride. The bus driver(s) were well informed and provided some excellent insight along the way. I learned an incredible amount about this part of Australia. Definitely recommended.
Friendly driver who gave us enough tourist information without bombarding us with talk all the way. The two stops were a welcome break. A good experience.
Our bus driver was wonderful. The bus was not very full, so I felt we got even more attention from the driver. A pleasant trip back to Alice Springs, after flying from Alice to Ayers.
Booked a bus ride got an entertaining tour. Driver was funny knowledgable and considerate of those wanting quiet time as well. Victor was a good booking agent and the bus is run by AARKings of Australia.
Operated with modern coaches. We had an unexpected change of coaches in the middle of nowhere. The second coach was full so no choice of seats.
Passenger near us insisted on closing the blind which stopped us looking out of the window but he wasa pursaded to swap seats.
The commentry by the drivers on the history, geology etc of the area we were passing through was particularly welcome.
Efficient and relaxed bus driving with very good and informative drivers ... in both directions ... even if it was a bit long ! Can be recommended !
