A fantastic job by AAT Kings! We arrived at Uluru to a table covered in nibbles and the offer of a glass of wine while we watched the sun go down. Our coach driver recommended we take photos 5 minutes apart in order to see how the colours change on the rock as the sun goes down. Afterwards the bbq dinner was good fun - meeting people from different countries - and delicious. Then the lights went out and we looked at the fabulous stars - wow!
The entire evening was incredible. The wine was flowing at sunset and at the dinner. We had great advice on picture taking at Ayers. The people at the BBQ were wonderful. The Star Tour was OK, but not at the fault of the tour package. It was "super moon" time and the brightness of the moon out shown some of the starts and constellations. Great evening out. One to remember.
The evening starts at a location looking over at the Rock with drinks and nibbles, the colour changes of the Rock are constant from the moment you arrive until you leave. A transfer to a different location for the BBQ and Star tour, each of which were brilliant.
This tour was great, we were picked up outside the hotel and taken to a viewing area to watch the sun set over Uluru, we were greeted with snacks and champagne or wine, whatever you preferred, also soft drinks were available as much as you wanted.
We were told to take pictures every 5 mins or so as the colour changes tha quickly, the tour guide was very good and very informative. After the sunset we were driven to an area where we ate as much as we wanted of salad/ vegetables bread hot freshly cooked steaks or kangaroo whatever you wanted, we all mingled and chatted to others on the table it was a very good sociable event, at the end there was a brief talk about the stars, a very good tour well done viator and thank you for a lovely evening.
Included the Uluru / Ayers Rock sunset viewing which we were not expecting. Great food but could have done with a little more light while eating. Interesting talk on the stars after the meal.
Sunset over Uluru was amazing! Tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable, BBQ was delicious! The perfect all-in-one tour!
Brilliant night out. Worth every penny, which is more than I can say about the resort...
As far as we can tell from guides etc. this was better value than the Sounds of Silence, and somewhat better quality food (we preferred the more substantial BBQ at long tables). It was slightly confusing having booked on-line, as no-one seemed to know which tour this was. But worked well, food quality and guides good.
Great sunset viewing area and refreshments. Good BBQ and well attentive staff. Very informal evening but really enjoyable.Enjoyed the talk about the stars.
