Everything you need @ Uluru!

We got to see Uluru and Kata Tjuta during the tours. Both were impressive to see up close, Uluru is massive, and Kata-Tjuta had a lot of different terrain to climb/hike through and see. Tour Guide Annabelle was very knowledgeable about the history, geology, flora/fauna, with a number of great stories. Food was good, nothing special but you're camping. Tents were solid along with the cots or you could sleep outside in a SWAG!. Sunrise/sunset views are contingent on weather but you're in the best spot to see them. All around ticks the boxes!

We had a great time. We felt like we learned a lot about the culture surrounding Uluru. Got to walk around a lot, watch the sunset and sunrise. We also enjoyed sleeping in the swags and enjoying the stars. Food was great, bathroom facilities were great as well. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend to others. We only wish we could have stayed longer and done the longer tour.

Despite some poor quality tents the trip was really very very good. It all boikled down to one of the best guides/hosts we have experienced over the years Timi. He is very respectful towards the clents, the aboriginal culture and the flora and fauna. He takes the time to engage his group in starting to understand the values of respect for all and makes it with a smile and winning way. A great trip.

I did not realize dark sky was as splendid as geology on the Earth. I should have book the evening tour for astronomy.

The tour was amazing. Everything we could have hoped for. The energy at both rocks is amazing, and our guide Simon, was able to answer all questions we had. Only helpful hint, would be to remember to read the fine print that says to bring a net hat and a flashlight torch, it will make your trip that much more enjoyable.

I wish more older persons would sign up for this. Although the other travel lords were very nice. Leader Rath was knowledgeable and very responsible. A pity that so much of the walk around Uluru was closed off due to heat. I loved sleeping out in a swag. Janice

Our guide was very knowledgeable. The trip was very busy and quick. I'm an active 68 year old and the hike was more than a moderate hike. I couldn't finish.

I had booked an overnight at Uluru and had inflatable mattress sleeping bag etc ready in my bag. For some reason officially : Truck problem pure lie I was put in another group I found at the airport the group which was going to sleep under the stars was average much younger than me, I was put in a group of people ranging from 30 to probably 55-60, I am 73 but I have been trekking 12 days in Sahara Desert two years ago 2015 and many times all along my life. So, the difference of age was not a problem for me, but was probably one for the Tour Operator.
So we did nor sleep next to Uluru in the bush, but in pre-installed square cabins some 20 km from the Rock, with a kitchentoilets block. Everything was nice, but I removed one star from my review because of missing this open-air night I was expecting against 12 nights in the sand / rocks in Algeria Desert near Libyan border !!!.

great experience - group leader Katie was exceptional - knowledgable, competent and personable
group was a great mix of ages and nationalities and a good size at 15 plus leader
only disappointments were neither sunrise nor sunset were spectacular and night sleeping under the stars not possible because of winds and and overcast but you can't control nature!
would have been great if trip had included a session with an Aboriginal person who could have told us first-hand something of their culture - although Katie was very knowledgable
it was still a great trip in spectacular country.

Very informative and enjoyable.
Only slight negative was the lack of lighting at the campsite although this we were led to understand will be soon rectified.
Very comfortable transport, plenty of comfort stops.

Jules the tour leader is a very knowledgable guy who was able to explain all the history and folklore of the indigenous people of the Uluru area. The big problem during the travel was the PA System in the Convered Truck being used as a 'bus' not up to the job.
Uluru is magnificent and well worth the trip to get to see it at sundown and dawn. However the cheap plastic toothbrush holder cups for the bubbly when all around have champagne flutes signals the cheapness of this trip.
Getting up at 4.30am is not a problem when the camp, that you stay at, is so basic. Having no lights to even get to the tents, or to get changed by, is not good. This is such a basic amenity to provide? The swag is not as warm as Jules suggests in the middle of winter!
The 'guests' paying customers are expected to do all the cleaning up and even cooking their own lunches. So if you expect Glamping then this is not for you.

There was nothing particularly wrong with this tour, but nor was there sufficient value-add to make it worthwhile. Maybe if you are touring from Alice Springs and want to meet other travellers it is OK, but I was based at Yulara and could just as easily have visited the Rock and the cultural centre, walked around the base and viewed the sunset and sunrise on my own. Others have said their guide was wonderfully knowledgeable and engaging - maybe ours had just done it too many times to be interesting, or maybe I was just not tuned in to the very laid back Territorian way of communicating.
