Incredible view and super friendly staffs. I enjoyed everything about the tour! The walk wasn’t difficult and the view is definitely worth it.

Our guide Dillon was excellent which made the tour more enjoyable. The tour was not rushed, it was informative and an experience which I will value

An absolute Must Do in Uluru. This was one one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had in my own country. Every Aussie needs to see Uluru as it is one stunningly beautiful monolith and the Viator tour gave us an opportunity to be up close and personal with “The Rock”. It was very well organised, the tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly and I would highly recommend it. Thanks Viator!

It was well worth getting up at 4am to get to remarkable Uluru and see the "red rock" change to numerous colors as the sun rose and scattered across her surface. Remarkable, too, are the rock formations at Kata Tjuta. It's hard to describe the beauty of these monuments or the desert or to give the spiritual meaning they have. Go and experience it for yourselves.

Wonderful. Our tour guide Dave did his excellent service. I really enjoy walking in the windy Kata Tjuta. Tour finished in 11:30 at outback hotel and I can catch the flight back to Sydney.

We felt that the tour was too rushed for the sunrise at Uluru. It felt like a race to get to Kata Tjuta before the other coaches arrived. However, the walk through the Walpa gorge in Kata Tjuta was spectacular

The guide didn't care about the rest of the group and only spoke with the Italians especially during the Kata Tjuta walk. So disappointed!

The sunrise was lovely, the rock was lovely but unfortunately, the two did not meet. We are told of incredible views as the sun rises over Uluru but this did not happen. I would recommend taking a tour with the Uluru Express company who take you to a viewing platform the other side of Uluru from which you can get spectacular views. Disappointing.
