5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 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.

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.

This is one of the best trips we've ever taken. The organization was great and the bus driver/tour guide's comments throughout he trip were quite informative. The scenery was magnificent.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 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.

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

4 star rating: Recommended July 2009

The driver/tour guide was well informed and looked after travelers very well. He also had extra water on board to fill drink bottles when required, which is a necessity when travelling in the outback.
