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.

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.

We had a great guide Cardy who was very knowledgeable about Aboriginal sites, information and sensitivities. Great woman at the campsites cooked really good meals for us. Loved the tents. Got fantastic photos of the Olgas and Uluru.

Really enjoyed this tour. This was one of the highlights of my Aus. travel. The air conditioned coach was newer than most similar tour buses and comfortable which was just great because it's extremely hot in the outback. The driver/guide was very affable and knowledgeable and passengers were an international mix from UK, Germany, S.Africa, Norway, S.Korea and all got on very well. The camping is really glamping with proper beds however, If you wanted to sleep under the stars I think that could be accommodated. The early mornings start at 4.30-5.00am because it is the coolest time of the day to start the hikes around Uluru and Kings Canyon. If you do not feel up to long walks there are options to take the shorter routes so the trip does cater for all fitness types. All good, thanks

A fabulous tour and definitely a highlight of our whole trip to Australia! Ross was a great tour leader, he took everything at a great pace, patient and was extremely knowledgeable. I love that he has only just started this job and it definitely was the right career change! A huge thank you to him.

It would be good to have clearer instructions in advance from Viator about baggage limitations especially if you are joining the tour in Ayres Rock and therefore travelling with a lot of luggage and no where to store it apart from on the bus. It seems to be very strict but after contacting the ground handler directly, this wasn't a problem and we were allowed our 2 large suitcases.
