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.
Fantastic tour - excellent guide, excellent sites, great group, everything very good
Excellent tour - our guide was Teagan with Brooke under training. Teagan was one of the best guides we've ever had and made the trip interesting and informative. We loved hearing about her life experiences which enhanced our experience and understanding of the culture. Highly recommended despite having to get up at 4am for the walks!
this was the best tour ever, our guide " Keith" was full of knowledge, the camping facility was the best, no crawling into a tent but walking into a nice little cabin with 2 single beds with blankets, pillows and towels waiting for us. The food was great. If you want to learn and discover what is central Australia this is the tour you need to take, from Uluru to Kings Canyon and everything in between, you wont regret any minutes. Everything was very well organise, good management of our time. No regret. I Highly recommended this tour.
The bus was quite uncomfortable, but the sites and food were great!
Very well organised tour, food wasn't great but ok. Tents were great, some mattrasses need replaceing as the springs have gone. Sleeping in swags was great.
The trip was very enjoyable and well organised. Our guide Matt was very knowledgeable , unfortunately on our way back to Alice Springs our bus got stuck in some sand and we were transferred onto another bus and were several hours late back in Alice Springs.
Excellent tour guide (Keith) who was enthusiastic, entertaining and very knowledgable; providing many interesting facts and talking to us about interesting features, such as plants that have functions in the environment you'd never know about. The food was excellent and exceeded expectations for this kind of tour. The accomodation/sites were exactly what I was hoping for considering it was a camping trip.
