The tour was spectacular, the sunrise and the walk through Kata Tjuta was breath taking. I would highly recommend this trip and was expertly led by Tyneal, Martin and Frank our bus driver

Really extraordinary location, and hiking through is the optimal way to experience it. Parks official website has loads of important information about hiking safely.

The trip was very well organised, the staff very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful, pick up was seamless. Please make sure you familiarise yourself with your pick-up time for your location (can be done at information centre). Be aware that there are some difficult sections on the hike but if you follow staff instructions then you should not have any problems. Well worth the effort, a must do.

The 2 guides Steph and Grace were exceptional. The scenery was spectacular however substitution of valley of winds for malpa pass was poor and well short of expected 3h walk. Breakfast was different to what was advertised and paid for and compensation totally inadequate. Part of substitution was similar to another tour we did next day and in the end we didn’t see and do what we had planned

This tour started with the most magical sunrise from a viewing platform! The sun rose to the left of Uluru and then shone against Kata Tjuta. It was amazing. We all managed a quick coffee and enjoyed this wonderful experience. From there we heading towards Kata Tjuta for our Valley of the Winds hike. The guides were wonderful - keeping a good pace whilst allowing the slower ones time to catch up. There were stops along the way where the guides would provide interesting commentary and we could get a breather. We got to the first lookout pretty easily, but the second lookout was a little more challenging to reach. However when we arrived it was UNBELIEVABLE! So beautiful! It was a 37° day so even though we started the walk around 9am, it was very hot by the time we finished at around 12 noon. The terrain is rocky and uneven in places so I was glad we purchased trail shoes before we came here. There was one section were you have to scale a rocky mound, however if a 56 year old can do it, so can you!. Apart from the heat on our return leg, this was a fantastic guided walk and I am so proud of myself for completing it as I’m not as fit as I was 5 years ago. Overall a very smooth half day tour - well run and thoroughly enjoyable.
