A brilliant experience
Sep 2021
This trip was absolutely fantastic. It was not my first visit to Uluru and Kata Tjuta but I found it thoroughly enjoyable. The breakfast was fantastic and the BBQ dinner watching the sun set over Uluru was magical. I had been worried about such a long one-day trip but there were plenty of toilet stops, there were USB outlets beside your seat and you could always nap. You didn't feel at all rushed on any of the walks although I didn't enjoy the Windy Walk at Kata Tjuta. It was rather physically challenging and somewhat dangerous and I don't think it did the beauty of Kata Tjuta justice. I've been on better walks at Kata Tjuta which is as beautiful and interesting as Uluru and there are alternatives to the one we did. But there was plenty to see and learn about throughout the day. I felt doing the trip from Alice Springs was preferable to only flying into Yulara: Alice made it a more rounded experience. I also appreciated being collected from my hotel and dropped back off at the end of the day.

Uluru, an enchanted place
Jul 2021 • Couples
From the hotel pick-up at 0600 to the drop off at 2330. It was a very long day...but full of lovely experiences along the way including the main feature...Uluru. it finished with a delicious BBQ at sunset watch the rock change colours. A wonderful day, highly recommended. Reece and Brittany were lovely hosts and drivers.

Great value for money!
Jun 2021 • Solo
Was a really great day out! At first, I was a bit unsure about sitting on a bus for 10 hours for the return journey from Alice Springs, but it was actually very enjoyable. The drive to Uluru was broken up with breakfast and stops and great commentary and there was plenty to see. The Olgas were absolutely incredible and Uluru was beautiful. The only small criticism I would have is that our time at Uluru felt a bit rushed. We were in and out again - no time to really wander and just take it all in with some time to yourself. The bbq dinner was good too! The drive home felt longer than the drive out but you can always nap or have some movies downloaded onto your phone. I noticed that there were USB outlets next to the seat buckles too. I am very glad I decided to book and be able to tick this bucket list item off while staying in AS for work! 🙌

Great Tour
May 2021
This was an amazing trip, well worth the early start. The breakfast at Erldunda was
excellent and the lunch of a prepared wrap was adequate (it would have been nice to include a juice box). We found the stops at KataTjuta and Uluru enhanced by the young guides stories of the Dreamtime. The BBQ sunset dinner was amazing with plenty of excellent food washed down with champagne or wine as we watched the colours change on the rock. We were kept on a pretty tight schedule and no one was late returning to the bus so we thought Tony could have given us a few more minutes at the end seeing we then reached Alice 30 minutes early.

Crowded buss and cannot change my seat
May 2021
This is the worst tour experience I have ever had. The minor problem was no pickup location was mentioned on the ticket and lead to my confusion and I was lucky the location I waited for the pick was accidentally correct. But, the major problem is the bus was full and there was not even one extra seat. What happened is that an extremely obsess person sat next to me and encroached to my space non-deliberately. I wanted to escape of that seat but there was no other available seat to go to. I was blessed with the warmth of body and sweat of that person on myself during the trip. While this is not the fault of that person, I see the tour operator the main responsible for this problem and I expect their official apology and prevention of repeating this mistake for the next travelers.

More than a massive rock
There is something magical about a massive rock in the centre of Australia, and nearby Kata Tjuta equally spectacular. The beauty, the cultural significance, the intricacies, the rock art, the water holes, the landscape, the vegetation, the amazing sunsets. A unique experience totally worth a visit. An experienced guide highly recommended.
