Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 109 reviews

The walk was very rocky - and uphill so Moderate as described. A Very interesting pattern of vegetation with actual small trees at the end and a small waterhole. Recent rains meant lots of lovely flowers around and flocks of tiny birds. We were allowed to walk by ourselves at our own pace , the driver did not talk continuously, and he let us stop by the viewing platform, all of which was excellent. This walk, coupled with the separate extended 36min helicopter ride over the Olga's where we could see where we walked, was awesome, and I appreciated the many features of the Olga's probably more than Uluru itself.

This was 1 of the highlights of our trip to Urulu & Alice Springs. The rim walk was amazing to say the least. Our guides were full of info & easy to talk to - Jess & Nick. Had a thoroughly enjoyable long day. Watching the sunrise would have been a bonus & also broken up the long drive before breaky.

Jacob our bus driver was exceptional, his knowledge and story telling made our trip so informative and a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend this trip to others thinking of going to Kings Canyon from Uluru. Thanks to Jacob, Moisos and Mark for an exceptional day out

Informative tour guide. Nice walk in the gorge. Perfect if you want to see Kata Tjuta and don’t have too much time.

Amazing views. Not an easy walk. We're walkers but not climbers!!! but we did it even at our age (over 70)
