Good but some buses can do the trip in 4hour's, so I heard not the 6 I had to do and would have been great if there was more than one bus a day
Coach service from Uluru to Alice Springs was very good. We'd never recommend a visit to Uluru though; the cost is scandalous and the presentation distasteful. The sooner it's shut down and left completely to the aborigines the better.
Very careful driver, especially when we had bushfires right and left of road.
Stops were ok, no better possible.
Great trip and a wonderful experience. Coach was on time and comfortable and drivers were helpful, informative and good humoured.
Wonderful trip. Comfortable bus. Knowledgeable guide. TVs did not work properly - irritating. Warn people in advance to pack snacks - no food available for a long time.
the trip we took from Uluru To Alice springs was very pleasant our bus driver had good knowledge of the areas we passed it was very comfortable had a stop for refreshments the trip was about 5 hours a good way to take in all the beautiful scenery and learn a little more about our the great country we live in
We chose this option as we could not hire a car. Was a straightforward way to get from Ayers Rock to Alice Springs - comfortable seats, at least one rest stop. Informative commentary along the way AND dropped off at hotel doorstep!
Although this was just a shuttle trip from Uluru to Alice Springs, it was a good experience. The driver gave a good explanation on the 5 hour trip.
The bus arrived exactly on time. Drivers were very informative and friendly.
This tour was very good.
We had hoped to see lots of Kangroo but no meant to be. The tour was comfortable and we saw lots more of the outback.
We had to change coaches which wasn't such a great problem but a bit irritating. The second driver was very knowledgeable and told us a lot about the area. Thankyou.
Inadequate commentary. Driver/guide gave out very little information.
First coach (Outback Pioneer Hotel to transfer point) was very good. However, second coach (transfer point to Alice Springs) was very disturbing. The coach smelt extremely strongly of a fishy/ammonia smell - so strong as to make you feel nauseous. Also the coach was very dirty and unkempt. Not a pleasant experience!
It was unfortunate that we had not had a big lunch and the road house we stopped at seemed unable to provide a reasonable choice to purchase food. The transport otherwise was good.\
I really wanted to do the Uluru and King's Canyon which concludes in Alice Springs but I was unable to because most of the hotels in Ayers Rock were booked for a conference. In the end I stayed at the Sails in the Desert which is the most expensive of the hotels at the Ayers Rock Resort (there is no town of Ayers Rock) and took individual tours to see Uluru and sunset and sunrise. My recommendation to anyone who has Uluru/Ayers Rock on their bucket list is to book very far in advance and be very flexible in how much you are willing to pay for this once in a lifetime experience.
My driver was wonderful but I was very sadden to arrive at Uluru only to be faced with dozens of people climbing up the side of the rock. It would be nice to be able to arrive there and not be confronted with this as ones first sight. If people insist on doing this can they please be hidden away somewhere.
A useful shuttle though very overpriced for what is it. Basically seats on a coach tour to Kings Canyon for the first third of the way. Then transferred to a coach from Kings Canyon to Alice for the rest.
Overall, this is a long and boring ride. Passengers going from Ayers Rock to Alice Springs had to transfer buses about two hours into the trip. In our case this was an inconvenience but a blessing since the first bus was extremely hot and never cooled down. The rest of the passengers on the bus were going to Kings Canyon.
