All the hotels close to Uluru were fully booked by the time we made up out minds about visiting the Red Center. Fortunately, this one-day tour was a truly viable alternative. Ayers Rock is far from Alice Springs, but the tour company was well prepared for a long, stressful day for the staff. With three driver-tour guides, one was always resting, while the other two were either driving or keeping us tourists entertained with information and friendly banter. Once we arrived at Ayers Rock, we were able to see the beautiful gorge at Kata Tjuta in the late morning. The guide books recommend a late afternoon visit, but considering the time constraints, some compromise had to be made. We saw just enough of the area around Ayers Rock to get a balanced impression of the culturally important aspects of the site. We saw rock overhangs with paintings and bas-relief carvings and a pool which has ritual significance, and we were able to get up close to the rock itself. I was not impressed by the sunset meal, but the other members of our tour group seemed to enjoy it. All told, this is truly a wonderful option to the very high prices for hotel rooms close to Uluru, and we had the added advantage of being able to do some shopping in Alice Springs and to visit the wonderful museums there.

Bit tiresome, but totally worth it.
I would do it again.
Had an amazing time on this trip it was very well organized, but also a very long day. It was definitely worth doing with a tour especially if you don't plan on renting a car because of the distance. I really enjoyed the sunset dinner and champagne while watching the different colour/hue changes of the Rock.
Long day, but great time. Our guides were awesome. Really enjoyed the short walks around Uluru.
A truly fantastic adventure. An early pick up at 6.10am followed by a 2 hour drive and then breakfast. This was typical roadside fare, Aussie style, and pretty filling. Arrived at Kata Tjuta and walked up the rock trail to have a closer look. But this is a massive rock formation and is better viewed from a distance. At Uluru there is a short walk through the cultural centre to learn a bit of local history. We then walked round the base of Uluru, saw rock paintings and heard more about the dreamtime. The BBQ was very good, so was the bubbly!
At sunset the colours of Uluru change from orange to brown and back. But truthfully, the sunset itself was much better.
Sorry I don't have pictures to show yet.
It is a long day. The drivers were delightful. The breakfast was great. The rock is very interesting. The seats were comfortable. I would recommend this tour.
We were well fed and watered the whole trip! All you need to bring is a 500 ml. bottle as they provided the water. Fly nets ,sun cream and good walking shoes are necessary. We saw all the sites as listed although I would have preferred a little more time at the cultural centre at Uluru.
The guides were informative and helpful, this was a English speaking tour and a lot of people could not understand the commentary as English was not their first language this resulted in these people talking to each other in their own language at one point I had to ask them to stop as I couldnt hear the guide.
This is the ultimate Red Centre day trip..
We drove for 4 hours through the red desert to Kata Tjuta and Uluru.
Even saw wild Emus and Camels!
The two lads who took the tour were brilliant and made sure we stayed hydrated the whole day. The bbq as the sun set over Uluru was the highlight.
Not enough words to say how awesome this trip is. It is a trip not to be missed!!
Fantastic tour. The whole experience was enjoyable, the trip, the tour guides, the food and the one and only spectacular Uluru.
