Our tour guides were very well informed. I was very impressed by the safety and efficiency of our driver, Jacob. We saw more fauna than usual- camels, brumbies, a calf, bustards (large birds) on the road - all of which Jacob slowed well down for. We had a hearty breakfast at Kings Canyon Station, with a shop available for any extras we wanted. Kings Canyon was amazing- I am in my late fifties, moderately fit, and found the steps at the beginning challenging, but felt comfortable supported by the guides to go at my own pace. From then on, the walk was not as demanding. The views, however, were exceptional! Such a stunning canyon. Our walk lasted close to 4 hours (and being up over 40C), then we were picked up for lunch, and we had a swim at the pool. A must see! So glad we did this walk. Maybe I would advise it is less strenuous during winter!

This was a great trip. Well planned and the two tour operators were great. It was a full day, early start but was well worth it. If you can do the rim walk of the canyon, the views are spectacular. It's the first 500 steps that's the difficult part after that it's uneven but much easier to walk on. The garden of Eden was breathtaking. Good value trip and two great tour operators who both had a vast knowledge of the area.

Without a doubt, the most fun I’ve had at 7 in the morning for a long time. The Segways are great fun, Chris’s knowledge and craic was amazing, even though he put me to the back of the procession. All questions were answered with a smile. If you go to Uluru, it is the law that you do this excursion, you will not be disappointed

It is a gorgeous trip. The tour starts very early in the morning but it is definitely worth it. The guides were great and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend the rim walk. It's only exhausting at the beginning but the view from above is incredible.

What a fantastic way to see Uluru! You get history, sights, fun all rolled into one. Actually a really relaxing way to do this!
