      Thomas D, Jul 2016
      Great trip. We enjoyed Uluru,Kata Tjuta and the camel farm. Very short ride on the camel but was still fun. I would stay one day longer at Alice Springs. Long way for two days.. But well worth the trip.

      It was a long journey from Alice to Uluru but our driver, Dave, was informative as we travelled which helped the journey no end. The coach was good and the air con superb. The camel farm was not at all interesting to us but the tour of Uluru was enlightening

      Our visit to Uluru was all we hoped for and more. The long bus rides were punctuated by excellent information provided by knowledgeable driver/guides. The sunrise and sunset experiences were superb and very spiritual in feeling. The accommodations (we received an upgrade) at Ayres resort were first class as were the people in the hotel and shops in the town center. We would recommend Viator to all travelers desiring a well organized 2 day tour.

      Peter A, May 2008
      The trip was extremely good, and in particular our driver had an incredible knowledge, both self taught and researched, of the Aborigine people, their culture, and their customs. We were, however, disappointed with The Sails in the Dessert, because it took us nearly two hours to get checked into our room, which left us with only fifteen minutes before we were being picked up again. In addition, we would have liked to have seen Kings Canyon, which I believe would have been feasible had a little more thought gone into the planning of the trip's timetable. Overall, it was an experience we will never forget and will be pleased to promote your tours to our friends when they visit.

      Filipe A, Feb 2015
      Excelente! A viagem de Alice Springs até a Uluru é longa, mas foi tranquila e confortável por causa do roteiro, com paradas na fazenda de camelos e em outros lugares. A acomodação no deserto é muito boa. O melhor, porém, é mesmo o tour até as pedras,The Olgase e a Uluru. O pôr-do-sol e o nascer do sol na Uluru são inesquecíveis. Vale registrar o bom trabalho dos guias, bem informados e sempre de bom humor. Aprovado.
