This was an ok trip. Frankly, it would have been better if I had rented a car and drove around myself. The driver and tour guide were very kind and friendly, but didn't really add any more info than we already got from the visitor's center. I had opted for the BBQ dinner afterwards - that was a mistake. The food was ok, but the weather was freezing cold July, and in the end everyone huddled under the few gas-lamps to keep warm. The BBQ could be a nice option in the summer, but in the winter, I wouldn't recommend it.
Fabulous trip with a good guide - we stopped at a couple of places for photo opportunities and information about the rock carvings and formations. Then did a great base walk which came with explanations about the flora and the the rock carvings and the stories associated with this part of the rock. It was really interesting. Being near the rock was moving.
The sunset was a comfortable affair from an excellent vantage point with snacks and fizz. Very nice. The actual changing tones of the rock and the surrounding area as the sun set was pretty stunning.
Outstanding in every way! This was the perfect way to see Ayers Rock. The guides were extremely knowledgable. We walked in to two areas, went to the cultural center, drove around the entire base, had a sunset cocktail hour, fabulous Aussie Bar-b-cue complete with kangaroo and all you care to drink, then a star talk and orientation which was beyond spectacular and even a fiery meteor shot across the sky to complete our night!
Great tour and history facts about the area. Appetizers at sunset, BBQ dinner and star gazing activities that followed the walkabout was very good. Good tour - highly recommend it. Note: AAT King tour guides not ours but we overheard a conversation at the sunset appetizers activity should not disparage another tour company when they do not offer the same type of tour. We went on a tour with this other tour company the next day as AAT KING did not have that particular tour and we loved it.
