Fantastic experience, one tour that includes both Kata Tjuta and Uluru.
Very full afternoon (5 hrs, I think?) and put together quite nicely. I was sick with a cold, so probably didn't enjoy it as much as I could have. First, be prepared for 2 things that I did not know about ahead of time. There's an additional $25 charged, payable in cash, before you get on, which is a fee for the use of the park. It's a government-required fee. Also, you are required to have a bottle of water before getting on the bus. As your bottle empties, you can have it refilled with water from the big containers stored under the bus.
Extremely well organized. There are a couple of guides, one of whom drives and talks, and another talks as you walk thru various parts of the park. There's no push for rushing, and several people were moving pretty slowly and resting along the way. The heat was intense.
Since I was feeling weak from my cold, I did not get off at the 2nd stop; instead, just sat on the bus. The driver was kind enough to turn on the AC for about half an hour.
There is one bathroom break. At the end of the tour, close to sunset, you go to Ayers Rock and enjoy some snacks, and beverages of either Coke, red/white wine, champagne and water. Each of the AAT Kings' buses have tables set up, and you're supposed to eat only from your bus' table. This was a problem for some of the guides, trying to explain this to people who didn't understand English. (Or trying to explain to people who just didn't understand this wasn't a buffet.) I think this could have been slightly better managed, but I'm not sure how.
The BBQ consisted of sausage, kangaroo and steak, along with a salad bar, plenty of wine, water, juice. A terrific sandstorm came along just as we were ending, so we had our dessert on the bus. Then it rained, highly unusual for this area, but a welcome respite from the heat.
Fantastic tour! Well organized and informative.
Very good tour!I was a little anxious because my flight from Sydney landed just an hour before the start but all went well.Got up close to Kata Tjuta,great photo ops and good guide narration,wonderful photo ops of Uluru at sunset.Might have hoped to get a little closer.There was an issue with my sightseeing pass,I was not able to use all four vouchers for my Darwin tours which was a disappointment,was left with a half voucher unused.I asked the tour company if I could use the remaining half voucher to upgrade to the B.B.Q. dinner option but they were not accomodating and referred me back to Viator which would have been a waste of effort and roaming minutes.
all good....always expect more for the money.....very nice bus driver and guide...
Kata Tjuta has different formation history and view from Uluru - and this tour visited both - an easy one hour walk at Kata Tjuta gorge, then a relaxing Uluru sunset, with the wine and nibbles - most enjoyable, we opted to have the BBQ dinner with Uluru as backdrop afterwards - we had a fantastic evening and great company of other fellow visitors from all over the world - we enjoyed thoroughly!
This tour was excellent. Would recommend it to anyone staying at Uluru.
