Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Best Uluru Base Walk at Sunrise. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
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.
We loved this!
Jess was a lovely guide who told us all the Anangu stories about how Uluru was formed and why parts of it are sacred. We walked the 12km at an easy pace and the path was flat all the way round. We highly recommend this.
Great early morning 12 km walk with breakfast and the tour guide was very imformative.
We had an awesome trip on the base walk at Uluru.
We booked through Viator, but the actual tour was run by SEIT. It seems that the advantage of using SEIT is that they typically work with small groups.
No drama's with the pick up at 'Sails'. Walking through the dark to see sunrise across the desert, and the changing colours on the rock.
Our guide - sorry forgot her name, was great. She was really knowledgeable and an excellent storyteller of the legends that are depicted on the rock and are integral to the aborigine culture and their relationship with Uluru.
This tour is to be recommended
To see the various facets of Uluru and the colour changes and to be with a small group with such an enthusiastic guide (Alex) was exactly what we wanted and we were not disappointed.Definitely a wonderful experience and one that will stay with us for a long time.
Loved the tour. The small group was a great way to experience the rock. Our guide, Ryan was very knowledgable and made the tour fun.
Totally enjoyed the hike, even if the ground was soggy due to prior days' rain. The guide was very informative all through the walk, explaining the meaning of each part of Uluru as we circled it. Uluru has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. Awesome!
My only suggestion is that the guides should warn you that you will be about 3 hours into the walk before any restroom is available, or maybe should make a stop after the half hour or so trip to Uluru and before the walk starts.
