This tour was amazing!
This was a truly memorable day thanks to our very well informed guide. Her name Sylvia, has thoroughly researched and studied to teach us about Uluru and the significance of all we saw on this very special long walk. A nice breakfast was provided. My husband and I agree that this was the highlight of our trip to Ayres Rock Resort and by far the best tour guide we have ever had anywhere in all our travels.
It was fantastic. Learnt so much about the spiritual aspect of Uluru. Loved the walk. Not difficult at all. Breakfast as we sat and looked at Uluru was great. I would recommend this walk to all.
Fantastic sunrise walk around Uluru with a lovely informative female guide. Delicious breakfast and snacks provided including hot and cold drinks.
Excellent. A very knowledgeable and interesting guide, Randal.
An amazing walk around Uluru with a knowledgeable and interesting guide Hannah. Listening to the stories whilst being in the places was magical. We did not realise how beautiful the actual rock was until we got up close and personal. Thanks Hannah for a great walk.
Small group tour with Seit tours. The guide, Montana, was exceptional. His knowledge and understanding of the cultural significance of Uluru was without question. Highly recommend this tour and tour group.
A great walk around the base of Uluru. Starting just before sunrise with an informative and personable guide, Ronald from Chile. Made all the better for having a very small group which SEIT promise.
Led by a guide from SEIT, we were a group of 8. Our guide, Ronaldo sp?, explained the various implications of Uluru to the aboriginal peoples from the area he explained its history, geology, several legends associated with features on the geographical feature. The walk of about 12.5K lasted 4-1/2 hours starting at 5:00am and taking in an unforgettable sunrise and a break for a picnic breakfast. This is the experience of a lifetime.
Sure, you could do the walk without a guide, bit having a SEIT professional there made all the difference.
We went with SE IT not AATkings and it was awesome because it was such a small group of us! AATkings is absolutely amazing and we went with them for almost all of our other tours but were glad we didn't for this one because those groups are so big! This one was very personalized and our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, funny and enthusiastic about the history and science behind Uluru. I didn't realize how much there is to see and discuss at the rock. You typically only see the postcard version of Ayer's Rock but once you get closer, you see many caves and sacred places with many fascinating stories behind them. This was a really amazing opportunity to learn all about it. I would highly recommend this tour!
