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 !
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Collected promptly from our hotel. The driver?guides were knowledgable and cheerful. Delovered right to our hotel at Alice Springs exactly at the time stated. Thank you
We were after more of a transportation solution than a tour. Everything was good including the drivers commentary. Bonus being dropped off at our destination hotel

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.
