Absolutely recommend the small group tours. I was very fortunate to meet a lovely group of people and our tour guide Matt was great company. He had a lot of interesting information about the area and adapted the tour to suit the group perfectly.

If someone wants to see Uluru .... more than from the level of "ant" (because that's how I felt walking at its foot) then I recommend it!!!

Our driver was very knowledgable and super nice. There were films about local area and the journey went super smoothly. Thank you, great ride!

Driver was EXCELLENT! Shared information on local sites with a fun story and sense of humour

The activity is a must! Have an empty belly. The food is amazing.
