The camping safari was top notch, and maybe it was that we had a good group of travelers with us. Maddy and Bek were superb guides. Bek is the queen of making grup for all of us campers. Some of us stayed in a tent me included and the more adventuresome slept under the stars in a swag. I would definitely do this trip again, but for a longer stint than three days. Maddy really took care of us when we hiked Uluru, the Olgas and Kings Canyon. The only problem that I had was getting up at 4am to start on our journeys, but it was well worth it.
Really great trip! We were with a group of about 20 other people, mostly couples from around Europe. The bus was right on time, and had good air conditioning for the trips between each destination. The longer trips had stops every hour or two to stretch our legs and see a photo-op and/or buy snacks at outback roadhouses. The tour guide was great, and the sights were outstanding. The food included in the tour lunch, dinner, breakfast, lunch, dinner, breakfast and lunch was good, and large portions, buffet style, unfortunately the flies sometimes got to things before we could go back for seconds.
One of the big highlights was having an aboriginal person show us around part of Uluru and explain a little bit about its significance to their culture in their own words.
Ce séjour de trois jours reste parmis nos plus grands souvenirs. Nous y étions en famille avec deux enfants de 10 et 12 ans ET avons pris l'option de dormir à la belle étoile.
Par contre j'ajouterai au descriptif quelques infos utiles il faut prévoir un maillot de bain, je vous laisse la surprise pour autant. Il faut prévoir trois litres d'eau par jour et par personnes, vous pouvez prévoir deux bouteilles d'un litre et demi que vous aurez l'occasion de remplir à volonté, si vous n'avez pas les bouteilles au départ, un stop vous sera imposé pour acheter, au prix fort, ces bouteilles, anticipez donc cet achat. Pour ce qui est du couchage j'ai longtemps cherché l'info suivante, les swags sont en fait des matelas dans des housses étanche à rebord, il n'y a pas de moustiquaire ni de couverture intégrée nous avons voyagé sur février - mars et avions pris des sacs à viande linen bag ainsi qu'un sweatshirt et, pour le cas où, une couverture de survie pour laisser le sac à dos léger... et ça nous a suffit.
L'accueil a été très chaleureux, nous avions Suzanne pour guide et Max pour hôte, tout c'est très bien passé, c'est un de nos plus beaux souvenirs et si nous avions la chance d'y retourner un jour nous opterions pour un plus long séjour et une balade autour de Kata Tjuta un peu plus longue, nous sommes restés sur notre faim pour cette balade trop courte ! J'avais déjà choisi Adenture Tours il y a vingt ans et je recommencerai la prochaine fois, ils ont une bonne culture aborigène, sont respectueux et très professionnels.
We did this 3-day tour in Australia's Red Centre in mid-March. We were very pleased with the entire experience. The tour guide, Kelly and the person responsible for the camp and meals, Matt took care of us very well throughout the entire tour. We were picked up on-time in a very comfortable, air-conditioned mini-bus. In a timely manner, we were brought to all of the sights indicated in the tour description. We chose the Safari option, which included accommodations in a permanent tent on beds and linens with pillows and towels provided. You need to bring your own soap and shampoo, which we brought from a previous hotel stay.
The early morning walk around Uluru was perhaps the most amazing of experiences with a 2 hour walk around the rock. Kelly was very knowledgeable and was able to give us detailed descriptions of what we were seeing and looked after our safety. Matt was an excellent cook and provided us with ample nourishment.
As a couple traveling, we would very highly recommend this tour and tour company.
Great tour, pick up from Ayres rock airport was easy, went straight for lunch at the camp which was tasty. Afternoon trip to Kata Tjuta which was wonderful, however it was a bit too hot for me but that's cause I'm Scottish. The tour size was small, there were only 8 of us, which was a nice size. The coach was a new acquisition and the air conditioning could've been better. It was also rather dusty at the back of the bus but these are minor issues. Sunset at Uluru with bubbly and nibbles was lovely. The sunrise walk around Uluru was amazing, such a glorious place. After lunch we travelled to King's Canyon, it was a long drive but it gives you a chance to sleep after the early start. We had the opportunity to go for a swim on arrival at camp which was nice. Both camps were well set up, comfortable beds, clean linen and towels were provided. There was also a fan and a power socket. King's Canyon sunrise walk was wonderful, so beautiful. Chief our tour guide was great, very informative and helpful. Max our host was fun, a great cook and looked after us very well. Highly recommend.
My brother and I did this trip in November and it was amazing. The Australian Outback was on my bucket list for the longest time and I finally got to do it. The trip itself was booked pretty last minute through Viator. On the morning of the trip departure from Alice Springs there was some confusion as to what tour bus we were to get on. Viator had not given us the name of the tour so we were left behind at the hotel until the tour guide came back for us. We had no idea we were joining Intrepid / Adventure Tours Australia. Thankfully my brother and I are pretty easy going so we never panicked. From the get go, our tour guide Joey was really great. He gave us the history and background to the highways and all we had to do was sit back and listen.
Our group was 22 people in total from Europe. The long drive to and around Uluru was broken up by frequent stops. Our campites and the food provided was at a high standard. They even cater for people with food allergies.
Uluru, Olgas and Kings Canyon are spectacular and have to be visited to be believed. I do recommend having a fly net as the bugs can be annoying. The mornings are early and they are so worth it for the sunrises.
I have amazing memories from this trip that will last a lifetime!!
Olgas, Uluru, Kings Canyon - all fantastic. Lived here 36 years and always meant to visit. It was so much more than I expected. The country is stunning. The trip was great and packed a lot into three days. Our tour guide, Justin, is a young man full of enthusiasm for his job and really made the trip. I'd definitely recommend the trip.
