Kings Canyon is one of the most spectacular sights in Central Australia. It is a long journey from Ayers Rock, but well worth the trip. With the option to join the more strenuous Rim Walk or the relaxing Creek Bed Walk, this day trip a great choice for people of all levels of fitness.

this was an amazing tour and the scenery was awe inspiring. the Tour guide Stasia was awesome and well informed about the landscape and kept us on time!!
This tour was the highlight of our Australian vacation despite it being a long trip by bus around 3.5 hours one way and a very early start 4:15 am!. The AAT Kings coach had comfortable seats and even had USB ports to charge phones/tablets. Our guide Alwyn was really great. We were determined to do the Rim Walk as we heard the views were incredible. We went on a day that was overcast and rained lightly at times which was probably better than on a day in the blazing sun. Note: If you are planning to do the Rim Walk, you are required by the national park service to have 3 liters per person. I'd suggest buying it ahead of time as the rest stop will charge you 6 for a 1.5 liter bottle! We knew the first 500 steps up would be challenging. It wasn't as bad as we imagined and our guide did it at a reasonable pace. We had some folks 60 with us and they managed fine. The Rim Walk is a 6 km walk/hike and you do need a good level of fitness to do it. The views are totally worth it.
Kings Canyon is incredibly beautiful and really worth the very early start. The colours, are amazing. The information provided by the guides about the local aboriginal people and their practices and customs is great. Please be aware that from October - April if you are planning on doing the rim walk you must have 3 litres of water with you, so make sure you are able to carry that amount or you can't do it.
Awesome experience, tour guides were very experienced and the early morning sun rise and walks were all very organised. A very special place to visit, thank you.
Very nice tour, particularly since this is pretty much the only option to join an organized tour from Yulara/Uluru to King's Canyon.
Fantastic day trip Well worth the climb to the ridge The landscape is like another planet and our guide Michael was funny, knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the day
Really friendly, personal service from our guide on our tour. Excellent organisation and a memorable day on the station then walking King's Canyon before going to Alice Springs. Best way to get from Uluru to Alice.
Before booking the tour I have done a lot of research, and I read all the available reviews online. I knew the first 500 steps would be hard. I knew someone with young kids did the rim walk successfully. But I still was frightened by the Statement I was given to sign on the bus. My poor husband who has zero knowledge prefilled almost want to give up. My 8yo who is too young to be afraid was the only one keen to sign the paper. haha
But, thank to all the previous reviewer, I really appreciate those useful information help me get enough courage to force the family join the rim walk. Otherwise, we won't be able to enjoy that beautiful view and had this once a lifetime experience. All my family rank this tour the best of all our red centre adventures.
Our tour guide Alicia and driver Trys were very friendly and funny. They told us a lot of stories and informations that hard to get elsewhere. Great thanks here.
Tris and Thomas were very personable, knowledgeable and fun. Day was long but fantastic! So glad I did the rim walk.Australia is beautiful. Learnt lots too about the outback. A must do.
Challenging start with 500 steps - great views and scenery on the rim-walk. Good guide provided plenty of info. Coach trip was relaxing, stops for coffee and great breakfast.
