Mimi was a beautiful, sensitive & knowledgeable driver & guide. Totally recommend. The lovely Sheridan was newer to this fantastic career change from truck guiding to tour guiding and also did brilliantly with telling us about the First Nations peoples’ stories & culture. A great way to explore & experience Uluru

We had indigenous guides who were wonderful we leant so much then had a painting lesson which was fun then spent time in the Cultural Centre. Mimi who was our AAT tour leader was excellent. Very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend without hesitation.

I have previously done this walk with another company and thoroughly enjoyed it. This time I thought I would give AAT kings a go, but never again. This was one of the worst tours I've ever been on and definitely not worth the money. The tour guide was new - she was very nice but didn't have much knowledge. They also had another guide with her and it was his first time and he was very aggorant and rude. They weren't clear about when we could and couldn't take photos (which is clearly marked by signs) and then the male guide would tell the lady guide off about it infront of the whole group, and constantly undermine her. It was rude and unprofessional. I'm glad I did this with another company previous as I had a great experience with them. This company hardly gave us any information apart from the 3 stories. I could've and wished I just walked around the rock and read the signs myself. I would not recommend this tour to anyone.

Perfect way to experience Uluru and appreciate the unique surroundings and culture. The walk is a great way to observe the different facets of Uluru. Along the way you can hear some interesting, well told stories of the local culture which adds to the overall experience. Our guide for the day, Tyneal was knowledgeable and interesting as was our driver Mimi. We had the pleasure of having Mimi on our tour the day before on the Kata Tjuta valley of the winds tour and her knowledge and people skills are exceptional. Would recommend both tours to those that like to walk and take in the landscape.

We were picked up on time from out the front of campground and driven by coach to Uluru to commence the base walk. Uluru is a stunning sight in the early morning light.. Toilet stop before walk started, which was great. I think our guides name was Colin, and he has very informative regarding history and matters of interest about the rock and the indigenous culture. Walked 6ks and had breakfast/toilet stop, was very welcome. After break we continued our base walk which so much fun. I really wish that the guide could have walked just a little slower as not all of us could keep up, other than that we had a wonderful tour, would do it again in a heartbeat!

We went on a cool morning, and were glad of our down vests, but much easier walking in the cold than in the heat. It was not too fast and not too slow for me, although a couple of stragglers at the back held everyone up. Enough stops to rest every 40 - 50 minutes, but no shade, and no cover when it rained. Good breakfast bag that we raided before the walk and at the 2/3 stop along the way. The guide had only been doing this tour a few months so would have preferred an indigenous ranger, but she did well enough. Lots of interesting places where photography is not allowed, but lots of other photo ops available. If I was doing this again, I'd just hire a car for a few days and do this on our own - it's easy to find the track, and you have more flexibility and options. This was supposed to be a sunrise walk, but sunrise had occurred well before we even got to the rock.
