Full description

Witness the splendor of Uluru on this day trip from Alice Springs. Have breakfast in Eridunda, visit a cultural center, see rock art on a guided walk, hear some traditional stories, and top It all off with wine and dinner as the sun sets.

Depart Alice Springs early to get a taste of the Australian Outback with a stop at Erldunda for a buffet breakfast. Then, continue to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to see the domes of the rock formations on your first walk. Learn about the local Pitjantjatjara people at the cultural center. Then, go to the base of Uluru for a guided walk to see the Anangu rock art. Head to Mutitjulu Waterhole for a short hike to the home of the ancestral Wanampi water snake and share some traditional "dreamtime" stories.

    It is a jam-packed day that lasts almost 24 hours. Well worth the long bus ride. Little stops along the way make you appreciate the nature and the place. Sunset dinner at the end is definitely the highlight and is an amazing way to end the day. Our driver Yad did a fantastic job driving and taking us around!

    The tour was amazing! Highly recommend if you are doing a solo trip. Our tour guide and driver was very nice and very knowledgeable so gave us a lots of information about the aborigines and this beautiful land. Also the bus was really big and comfy, they also have the usb for the phone to be charged but unfortunately they were not working. But honestly despite that everything worked out really smoothly: all the meals were perfect even for me how I’m vegetarian. Book this trip! It’s is absolutely worth it!
