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.

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
Had a wonderful trip.Nothing can prepare you for your first glimpse of Uluru...awesome.

Bus drivers were great but didn't feel it was worth the money.
