We enjoyed the aerial tour of Uluru. The view was amazing. I would have given this 5 stars except the windows in the rear seats had scratches that caused blurred areas in the video and still photos. It would have been nice if one of us was offferred a choice of sitting in the front. We shared the tour with a relatively new employee from the resort who was given the front passenger seat.
We did the short trip but wish we were up longer. Great pilot and great views. The chopper was very stable and we felt comfortable the whole trip. This is a great way to get a better perspective on the rock. The pilot was very informative and full of interesting facts. Highly recommend this trip.
It was great experience even though we had bad luck with weather. The helicopter was a bit small, but there was only our group inside, which was good. And the pilot was awsome. He told us a lot about the places we were above.
I enjoyed the trip! Great views of both "rocks". We had lots of photo opportunities, and the pilot/commentator was excellent. Our kids 17 and 15 thought the whole experience was "outstanding". Gave us, literally, a new perspective on the area.
Definitely provides a different perspective of Uluru and Kata Tjuta - well worth it!
Yes, was well worth doing. A word of advice though: if you suffer from motion sickness, remember to take your medication around the time of pickup. My partner suffers and didn't allow enough time for hers to kick in. Ask for sick bag prior to take off. She still loved it and would definitely do it again.
We only did the Uluru flight, but I would be tempted to do the longer one that takes in Kata Tjuta if I were to do it again.
It was amazing to see the rocks by helicopter but it's not as good as we expected. We didn't go that close to the rocks like the brochure pictures.
The trip was great, the pilot was friendly, the views amazing, definitely worth doing.
Enjoyed the flight, the pilets where very nice, from the moment they picked us up to when they dropped us of.
Made the mistake of sitting in front next to our pilot. Did not like the fact that there was so much perspex and so little structure to the 4 seater craft with no grab handle available. Didn't realise that would be my reaction until we were airborne. As a result, I spent a lot of time with my eyes closed every time it banked!! Scenery wise the flight was awesome. I would do it again but only if I could sit in a rear seat.
The ride was great and the pilot very informative. Only negative comment we had to confirm our take-off time 24 hrs in advance, but there was no phone number on our confirmation voucher. We're from Canada, and we had to find a computer in Australia, send an e-mail to Viator asking for the phone number, wait for a response and then call to confirm. Very frustrating.
Good fun but a bit short and we didn't fly as close to the Rock as I imagined we would. A bit overpriced for what it is.
It was a real experience being able to see Uluru from this perspective, however it is also expensive for 15 minutes in the air. Glad that we did it but it is a once only adventure .
short and sweet. The pilot could have been more informative. Did not get close enough to the rock
I did not have a reservation and I had to contact the company multiple times. I wound up getting on the sunset tour. I was in the back seat and the other two passengers removed their doors, so it was windy with not such a great view. It was a hassle.
It was a lot of money for what you got. After going on a helicopter flight in both New Zealand and the Grand Canyon, this one "near" Uluru was boring and unadventurous. The pilot was great and really nice, but the flight was too much for what you actually see and get.
It's definitely a great way to see Ulura and Kata Tjuta, the length of time was sufficient. The delta was that there was no commentary given. We asked about some history and pilot said he did not know much he also claimed to be very inexperienced as a pilot, made us pretty nervous.
The Pioneer Outback was a dirty room. There isn't enough things to do there. How about massages or hair salon, pedicures, etc.
