Pictures do not do this place justice, WOW it was incredible - for just a rock sticking up out of the ground, you have to see it to believe it. The tour guides were great, they were very knowledgeable about the history and the stories. If you come up to take a tour add the BBQ it was fantastic and fun, all the food and drink you could want. We sat family style which allowed up to meet some more people.

This tour is very convenient and packs a lot of sightseeing into a fairly short time. Pickups and drop-offs are at the major hotels in Ayers Rock. The sunset on Uluru is spectacular. We skipped the BBQ dinner which is optional and at an additional cost. The tour includes one fairly short hike, which is optional if you'd prefer not to walk or are disabled. You should buy and wear a fly net (approx. $10) if you visit in the warm/hot months.

We enjoyed the tour! The tour guides Jason and Adam were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Fabulous trip with a good guide - we stopped at a couple of places for photo opportunities and information about the rock carvings and formations. Then did a great base walk which came with explanations about the flora and the the rock carvings and the stories associated with this part of the rock. It was really interesting. Being near the rock was moving.

The sunset was a comfortable affair from an excellent vantage point with snacks and fizz. Very nice. The actual changing tones of the rock and the surrounding area as the sun set was pretty stunning.

I would do this again happily.

No sunset but amazing photos of waterfalls on the rock. Apparently very few people experience this, just beautiful.

华人游客可能比较少,但是还是值得一看。这个行程的时间可以说是刚刚好,半天的时间,尤其是黄昏时的乌鲁鲁美到不真实。两位导游也很有活力,她们很生动地从人文还有地理的角度解读乌鲁鲁并且沿途分享了很多神话故事,要是有中文的讲解就好了。

Very informative and absolutely breathtaking. Be prepared for very hot. But thats nature.

We were expecting the sunset to be behind the Rock. Didn't really have much of an effect, but overall, the tour was good and well run.

We booked this tour expecting to be able to walk around at least part of the base of Uluru and then see the sunset. Instead, the first place we were taken on the tour was the Cultural Center where we were basically told to entertain ourselves for 70 minutes. The cultural center takes 30 minutes max to get through and that assumes you read every display. There are numerous gift shops and one cafe attached to the cultural center where you are supposed to spend money because you have nothing else to do. Note that this stop was NOT mentioned in the online itinerary. After this stop we were driven to a portion of the.base that used to have a watering hole. After walking about 500 meters total, the guides told some stories about the base and what the indigenous people believe some of the markings mean. The guides told long drawn out stories, no doubt to kill time. We saw where people used to line up to climb the rock and were driven around part of the rock. Now, the indigenous people don’t even want tourists taking pictures of one side of the rock because they say it’s sacred. I can understand not wanting people to climb, but prohibiting pictures is a bit much. Finally we were taken to the sunset viewing area where the tour company provided “canapés” which were potato chips and some alcoholic beverages. Our guide David was very good, at least his stories were understandable, unlike those of his colleague. The sunset was great, but you are really better off just booking a pure sunset viewing tour and avoiding this one.

This was an ok trip. Frankly, it would have been better if I had rented a car and drove around myself. The driver and tour guide were very kind and friendly, but didn't really add any more info than we already got from the visitor's center. I had opted for the BBQ dinner afterwards - that was a mistake. The food was ok, but the weather was freezing cold July, and in the end everyone huddled under the few gas-lamps to keep warm. The BBQ could be a nice option in the summer, but in the winter, I wouldn't recommend it.
