Great experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Breakfast was good and catered for my lactose intolerance. We saw Kata Tjuta shrouded in cloud and then also after the cloud lifted, displaying many moods. So beautiful. This is a magical part of the world. Do yourself a favour and experience it yourself.

Very well organized tour with excellent knowledgeable guide for a highly efficient 3 hour experience. If not interested I. Lengthy walking, this is a great compromise.

Anna and Jason our Tour Guide and Driver were great. So much knowledge to take in. Rain on Uluru special day.

Great value for money. Observing the colour changes of Uluru as the sun set was awesome!
