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!

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.

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.
