This was most definitely the best tour we did. Jakob was excellent in getting us to Kata Tjuta in time to watch the sunrise and gave us ample time to soak it in. We had plenty of opportunities to ask questions and for slower walkers and perhaps not so experienced walkers, Jakob was great at slowing down and giving tips to navigate the difficult parts of the walk. It is definitely a grade 4 walk and Valley of Winds is windy!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our time and I'd highly recommend this tour.

What an amazing tour! Aaron Paul and Dave were superb guides. Their love and passion for this wonderful country was such a highlight. This tour was simply brilliant and so informative. I highly recommend this tour and if your lucky enough to have these boys as your guides you’ll be laughing all the way up and through the majestic Kata Tjutas!!

This tour was the best of the tours that I di in Ayers Rock! Geoff and Trys were our guides and they were very knowledgeable and made the morning tour an awesome experience. Id do this tour over Uluru any day!

A well organised tour which ran smoothly. Well informed tour guides who made it interesting as well as fun. A good choice of walks, with a good breakfast bag and hot drinks on arrival at the sunrise spot. A great sunrise with fantastic photo opportunities.

This was a great tour. Be aware that it is quite strenuous (especially if it’s raining). Take a hat, water, bug repellant, and sunscreen.
