We went with SE IT not AATkings and it was awesome because it was such a small group of us! AATkings is absolutely amazing and we went with them for almost all of our other tours but were glad we didn't for this one because those groups are so big! This one was very personalized and our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, funny and enthusiastic about the history and science behind Uluru. I didn't realize how much there is to see and discuss at the rock. You typically only see the postcard version of Ayer's Rock but once you get closer, you see many caves and sacred places with many fascinating stories behind them. This was a really amazing opportunity to learn all about it. I would highly recommend this tour!
This takes about 5 hours including breakfast but was very interesting and enjoyable!
One of the highlights of our Australia holiday, lucky enough to see some kangaroos at the base, sunrise change in colour of Uluru amazing.
This is a must do tour. Being at the base of Uluru as the sun rises is a wonderful experience. You can see the rock start to glow red as the sunlight begins to strike it. The walk around the base was flat. Even though we traveled 12km total there was always something to view and the time went quickly. Our guide Lauren did a super job of pointing out various features of Uluru and relating Aboriginal stories behind those. Very worthwhile adventure.
Lovely experience! The guide and the driver were really friendly. I liked a lot the story that the guide told. It is a must to do experience! Thanks.
Even though this tour had an early start, it was a very special experience and worth the effort. This tour is a good way to get up close to Uluru in a respectful way and to learn about some of the Aborigines' stories and sacred sites around the rock. A breakfast and water is provided. The walk itself is just over 12K, but is flat and easy walking. Be sure to dress in layers as it can be quite chilly and windy before the sun comes up. Note that there is only one restroom during the entire walk about the half way point.
It was just a fabulous morning, to see the red sun on the red rock has to be experienced. Our tour guide, telling us about its history, made the walk very pleasant indeed.

We loved the base walk around Uluru, our tour guide was very knowledgable and we learnt heaps about the rock, we enjoyed the light breakfast included in the fee and we felt this tour was the highlight of our visit to the Red Centre
This tour was the highlight of my trip. The guide was excellent and picked a great spot to watch the sunrise and then throughout the walk told many great stories and the history around Uluru. Loved the stories and seeing how it all relates back to the rock and its surface and caves was so interesting. Definitely wouldn't have been the same without this information.
Outstandingot trek with a wonderful guide. Ryan is friendly, knowledgeable and considerate. We enjoyed his presentations .
Loved this tour there was only 10 of us and Ryan our guide was fantastic. He knew so much and kept my 2 children amused the whole way round. Highly recommend this tour
Our guide, Ryan, did a great job as did his assistant, Laueen, but I was disappointed that we didn't hane an indigenous guide. That would have been fantastic!
This walk is long, but easy. It was great to see all the interesting spots and learn about the culture of the Aboriginal people.

A great your with an informative guide. Plenty of food in the breakfast pack. Wonderful place.
Beautiful views with a fascinating history. This guided tour was a highlight of our trip to Uluru.
This tour was great. The 12 kilometre base trail was easy. Our guide Kim was great. The breakfast was good
great experience, with a guide who was very well informed and truly interested in providing us with understanding of both the indigenous and non indigenous perspectives of the site.

Wonderful, especially in such a small tour group. Our tour guide was brilliant, good knowledge and very personable.
If you go to Uluru you should do this tour. The sunrise on the rock is beautiful. Walking around the rock the guide provided great insight into the cultural and geological history of the rock. You get a feel for the land by being able to walk at a comfortable pace around the base, taking in all of its unique aspects.
Fantastic tour. Great explanation of significance of each part of the rock as we walked.
Perfect conditions, competent guide and small group. But would it be so difficult to accomodate an aborigine guide, even if it means hiking the price a little, and maybe make the breakfast more relevant to the situation? Many thanks
Our guide, Monica, was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable!! Uluru itself is just amazing, but she made the walk around it (12 kilos for those who wondering) even more enjoyable. There were only 6 people including Monica. Highly recommended.
Tour was fantastic. Highly recommend seeing Uluru at sunrise up close.
