Out guide MA was amazing. A fantastic experience that I would recommend to anyone. We had 10 people in our group ranging from 13 to 62 years old and we all loved it. Highly recommend. MA’s knowledge of the rock and the local indigenous people was informative and well delivered. Gave us a whole different outlook on indigenous beliefs and their way of life. Thank you

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.

It is well worth the early wake up. It’s very dark, take a torch. You’ll get some beautiful photos when you walk down through the lights.

Great activity, good way to see Uluru. Tour guide very knowledgeable of the area. Training of Segway before starting is great.

Fabulous experience, highly recommend Food was good, tour guide was excellent
