Great guides with outstanding knowledge and experience well worth the experience.
Ayers Rock is a sight to behold. The tour made it even better! Our guides0 were very well informed and answered all of our questions. Sunset was awesome and the wine and cheese made it even better. The barbecue was very good as well. The unexpected touch came after the barbeque when our guide gave us a tour of the night sky -- lots of fun for this US resident who never had the chance to star-gaze down-under!
One tip -- flies are EVERYWHERE. I'd suggest either wearing a mosquito screen, at least over your head and face or carrying a generous supply of insect repellant or both.
Enjoyable and informative trip around the base of Uluru with several stops including the Cultural Center, which is owned and operated by by the Aboriginal Anangu people a watering hole and partial cave and the west side of the rock where other people climbed up the path - which was discouraged as Uluru is sacred to the Anangu. Our guide told us aboriginal stories and history about Uluru. The sunset view of the rock changing colors was beautiful and the food and drinks were a nice touch. The barbecue had meat and vegetarian food which was good. The star-gazing was fun even though we were there on the night of the super moon which was so bright you could not see as many stars. The staff were friendly and helpful.
My wife and I were met by our tour bus on November 12 at 15:15 at the Desert Gardens Hotel by Ken and Toni, our tour guides from AAT Kings. We had to purchase National Park Entry Tickets which cost 25 AUD and are good for three days. We proceeded to Ayer's Rock Uluru and hiked around the base with Ken who told us about the fauna and flora of the area especially with regard to how the Anunu People made use of them for food, weapons and treatment of various ailments. At the end of the tour, the group was treated to wine, cheese and crackers as we all watched the sunset over Ayer's Rock. For those of us who had also paid for the barbecue dinner, we got on another bus and were taken to the tourist center where we were served a nice dinner including beer and wine.
As most everything has to be brought to Ayer's Rock, food prices were high.
Really nice afternoon trip taking us to the cultural center and a walk around part of the base of Uluru. This was followed by a terrific BBQ of unlimited wine, beer, grilled chicken, steaks, kangaroo, and a multitude of sides. Tour guides were terrific. I'd recommend
Excellent tour, very easy walk and the cultural centre was an insightful visit. Sunset was a bit of a miss due to weather, but a very thoroughly enjoyable experience. Very well organised by the tour team.
The guides were great, lots of interesting info. They were generous with the wine at sunset but set your expectations low regarding the and #39;canapes and #39;. Worth the extra money compared to hiring a car and doing it yourself.
Very well organised tour . The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the weather was perfect .
My sister and I made this booking as a last minute idea when we realised that the others tours we had taken didn't really get us up close to Ayers Rock, having seen it from the vantage of a helicopter and at sunset on comeback. With less than a day remaining of our stay in Uluru, we decided to see what was available in the limited time we had remaining. We didn't regret one minute of this tour. It truly gave us the "complete" Ayers rock experience and we now have unforgettable memories that we have already shared with our family and friends. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Uluru.
Great trip, the walk was shorter than I expected which was a bonus in the heat. Mick our guide was fabulous. He had a wealth of knowledge and made the experience really come alive. Plenty of wine at the end, nibbles not so great but that is my only thing I would change. Highly recommend.
We enjoyed the tow half day trips with Sharee.
She was very informative and passionate and knowledgeable in her presentation.
Canapes and drinks were great and BBQ dinner was cooked to perfection. Recommend both tours.
Interesting and informative, one guide more engaging in his story telling. Only down side was a mix up about which was our refreshment table. Nibbles and dips provided and plenty of bubbly! Good, I'd recommend it, especially if you can't walk too far.
Great explanations of indigenous beliefs and flora and fauna by Michael our guide. Colours of Uluru at sunset sensational with relaxed ambience created by drinks and nibbles as well as stools to sit on.
Steaks expertly cooked to our liking at the barbecue with plenty of other tucker and salads to go with.
Of course, Uluru itself is amazing. Spending 5 hours on a full coach bus to see it, in the middle of summer, is not so impressive. Tour guides were very knowledgable and this is the best part of this tour - being guided and being able to ask relevant questions about the Rock and its background. 45 minutes at the Cultural Centre wasn't really long enough to wander around, see exhibits and possibly purchase some art work. The sunset viewing with champagne and canapés sounds very romantic, but after 5 hours of the heat and the flies, some bubbly and some dips and crackers isn't really as idyllic as its made out to be. This tour is very good for a first -time visitor who has no idea what to see. Coming back another time, a hire car and freedom would be brilliant.
