Our small group tour to Kata Tjuta began on November 13 with our pick-up at the Desert Garden Hotel at 14:30 by SEIT Outback Australia. It took nearly 45 minutes to travel by small bus to Kata Tjuta where the group hiked into a mountainous area with explanations of some of the geology and flora provided on the way. It was not a strenuous walk but hot for which water was provided. There were also explanations of some of the Anunu beliefs involving the Kata Tjuta.
Great being in a small group rather than the big buses you see carting tourists around. Excellent guide. Highly recommended.
This was a lovely trip and the guide was extremely informative. It was a very hot day and she made sure everyone was safe on the walk to the gorge. We were able to modify the trip so that everyone got to enjoy the walk, even the least fit. Sylvia was our guide, she was enthusiastic, caring and full of good information. I really enjoyed the trip.

We found the small group tour really good for us and we would recommend it to others.
Really small group tour, because there were only two people, me and my guide (Jess)!! haha She was extremely friendly, and made me feel at home. Although I was more than 30 minutes late (sorry Jess...), she was very kind and welcoming. Kata Tjuta itself was plain amazing as well. Highly recommended!!

Our guide was very laid back and informative. Lots of tales and info given en route. The walk was unbelievable and so awesome in the original meaning of the word. Local stories about the formation of the rocks much more inspiring than geographical ones! A great trip at the fantastic Ayers Rock.
Excellent tour guide and experience. Small group of eleven which ensured personal attention. Very informative trip to our destination including Abroginal culture and their history over the thousands of years in the red centre. Then arriving at Kata Tjuta (Olgas) we were met with a magnificent scene of a harsh landscape and a breathtaking valley within the Katta Tjuta. On our two kilometre walk through the valley the tour guide, Stacey, made her way to every person in the tour discoursing history and answering a multitude of questions. Stacey was also concerned and monitored every one of us as to our health and capacity to walk the journey over the uneven earth along the valley floor. It was most reassuring. We had plenty of photo shoots and plenty of time to absorb the views and significance of the Kata Tjuta. I would reccommend very highly this tour and our tour guide Stacey.
Really good tour but I would not do it again in the afternoon heat. Our guide was extremely helpful in overcoming the heat factor with water spray, iced towels and electrolyte drink.

Very good. but no refreshments offered. Guide nice and relaxed with lots of info. Walk up to the platform quite risky with lots of rocks, etc, but this was not the guide's fault. Views a little disappointing, expected more.
Very beautiful walk. Not nearly as long as Urluru. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. They made the trip very pleasant and interesting.
Great watching the sun rise over this beautiful scenery.The short walk that followed breakfast could be challenging for some due to the rocky terrain underfoot however the vbiews were well worth the effort.
Enjoyed the commentary while in the van. The guide Ryan was very friendly and patient with our team different skill levels. Liked where we were taken for our walk. Thought it was a little pricey for what you got and wish there was a one day park pass option I realize this isn't the tours fault.
Excellent walking tour of the Wolpa Gorge and nice drive through the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Our guide was very informative and our very small group learned a lot about the area and the native inhabitants, wild life and plants. Make sure you wear good, sturdy sneakers, bring plenty of water, and bug repellent! Our guide did have a water jug to replenish our smaller bottles and he carried a natural bug repellent cream as well. Others on our tour had hats with mesh but we were not quite that prepared but given the fact that our one piece of checked luggage didn't get on our flight, we had to make due with the items we had in our carry on. If you are going to take this tour, make sure sneakers, and bug spray are in your carry-on! This tour got back in time for us to make the Sounds of Silence Dinner pick-up and it was a very informative, moderately strenuous introduction to the Outback.
Small intimate group led by Angela who was knowledge of the area. We didn't realise how majestic Kata Tjuta is and the peacefulness was pleasurable.

Tour guide was terrific - loads of information was provided to us on the mini-bus trip out to Kata Tjuta. The walk was easy and gentle paced - no difficulty at all. Recommended
Tour was cut short as the driver/guide couldn't find persons supposed to be booked on this tour. That wasn't her fault but time taken driving back to the resort searching for these people who apparently never really existed.
Interesting and a learning experience. It would have been better except for the flies. Nothing you can do about nature though.
Everything ran smoothly and on time but the weather was against us as it was very hot and the flies b were a real pain. I can't blame the tour but the time spent was unpleasant.
A very good afternoon tour and enough to give the visitor a real understanding of the Geology Fauna and Flora, without taking up to much time in the blistering heat
The tour is quite expensive for only three hours trip, but considering that everything is sooo expensive in Ayers Rock... it is in the average. The guide was too young so she didn't made the travel so interesting...
Although the domes were amazing, I would not recommend this tour at 2:30PM when the temperature is over 43 C. It was so hot I could not finish the walk. This would have been better during early morning. I like that the group was small and the guide was knowledgeable.
It was nice. The Olgas are quite tall and big. The tour guide was very informative. This tour in my opinion is too short. I would recommend to take the longer tour as you have an opportunity to walk around the rocks, but if you are short on time, it is a good choice.

A very small group of 3 people. A drive to Kata Tjuta and a walk for an hour. Sadly we returned to Yulara well before sunset. The tour is misnamed and I felt a little cheated
