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.
Excellent trip,breathtaking sunset.Ryan was excelent guide, well informed and friendly. Small group size meant we were all involved continually in the commentry and talks along the route. Good breakfast and not too strenuous a walk.
The Uluru Base Walk at Sunrise was an amazing experience! It was great to go for a walk early in the day before it got too hot and to see how uneven the rock was, with small caves and other marks on its surface. The guide had some good stories too, which our children of 8 and 10 also enjoyed.
informative. brilliant guides. jamie was excellent. bloody long walk! not for faint hearted!! tough on a hot day with one toilet hours into the walk!! especially since it was recommended drinking one litre of water every hour!!! but loved it. amazing place.
The small group tour allowed us to hear the tour guy (James) better than a larger one. James was very knowledgable in Uluru's history and the stories behind it. Be prepared to dress warmly especially during the early morning. I never thought I would be so close to Uluru but this is a must do if you are in the Red Centre.
The walk was easy, the SEIT guide was brilliant and the atmosphere was amazing. Uluru didn't seem quite as colourful at sunrise as we expected, but the cultural side more than outweighed that. The samll size of the tour group also helped with the intimacy of attention from the guide.
Excellent tour. I have no hesitation in giving it 5 stars. The bus was on time, our guide was charming, well informed, knowledgeable and added to the whole experience. The walk was stunning and made even more interesting by the talks and explinations by our guide. I will definately be recommending your base walk to my friends and I will be using Viator the next time I am in Australia.
Else, our tour guide, was exceptionally knowledgable not just about the cultural and spiritual significance of the different sites around Uluru but also about the flora and fauna of the area. She was attentive, changing the pace of the walk according to the requirements of the group - there were 12 of us - ensuring that we returned to the hotel in time to get our flight back to Sydney. My wife left her camera on the tour bus and this was returned to us by post. Breakfast, included in the price, was excellent. My one small gripe was that I hadn't realised that the tour didn't include the entry fee to the National Park, which I had to pay by cash on the morning of the tour. I'd recommend this tour because the bigger tour groups that we saw didn't appear to fully take in all the wonders of one of the most amazing places on earth
