Tour guide and driver are very knowledgeable. Create a touch of classy atmosphere in a rough landscape. Canapé wines champagne plentiful in sunset tour . Beatrice even took the rubbish bin and followed us to the platform thanks

Did the combo— Uluru sunset and sacred sites, a sunrise at Uluru and Kata Tjuta walk and Kings Canyon. An excellent way to see the sites and learn more about the local culture. Enjoyed the kings Canyon Hike— very strenuous climb to begin, I recommend pacing yourself on this first bit. Once you’re up the 500 steps(!!) the rest of the hike is moderately challenging but so enjoyable— amazing rocky landscapes, fossils, and awesome views. Overall, very good combo

A huge shout out and thank you to guide Jakob, whose commentary and insight into the sunset tour of Uluru was informative, respectful, enthusiastic and deeply moving. This young man is an inspiration! Thanks also to Grace who, although relatively new to the role, did a fantastic job.

We had a wonderful roughly 5 hour trip with AAT KINGS. Our driver Jim was very cheerful and pleasant and did his job well with plenty of pit stops! Our guide John was first rate, speaking with great enthusiasm and knowledge about the spectacular landscapes, the Aborigine customs and practices, the flora and fauna, he was one of the best tour guides I've ever experienced. Well worth going, this tour of Uluru and Kata Tjuta (Olgas)

Family of six recently in Yulara. We did a number of tours with them including King's Canyon, Kata Tjuta, Uluru sunrise and sunset and the base walk. All of these were awesome and the guides were fantastic. Shout-out to Moises, Tachi, Jakob, Sarah, Beth and Jack - knowledgeable and with a clear passion for the history. Would highly recommend

Totally the best activity and night dinner that we had during our staff at Yulara! To AAT Kings - Dylan and Sara are both an asset to your organisation, they have the knowledge, care, brilliant customer service - went out of their way to ensure everyone was enjoying the experience and would go aware with excellent memories of this trip! The tour was very informative, sunset arrangements awesome and the BBQ dinner amazing! The night sky talk was also informative and well presented! Would highly recommend you do this tour if in the area - would book for this one again!

What a fantastic time we had on all of our tours with AAT Kings. Tours were well organised, informative and the staff went above and beyond. I couldn't recommend them enough.

Staff will always be informed of complaints but often don’t get enough credit or compliments. The tour was exactly as described and worth the expense but it was the staff who made it great! There were still some limitations on tours and activities when we were there and we thought all the out door dinner tours were booked but Adam at the AAT tour desk in Yulara overheard us chatting and mentioned their BBQ dinner. The small staff crew did everything- booking,driving,guiding,cooking,serving,checking everyone on and off multiple times with all the C19 requirements. The astronomy talk was brilliant. I don’t want to miss anyone but special mention and thanks to Adam,Jacob,Craig and JJ.

You have Uluru but without the right guide it is still a rock. Paul Nagle is that guide. He has such deep respect for the Anangu people and culture that through him we see Uluru through the hearts and minds of its custodians. Paul has cultural credentials from Charles Darwin University and he has refreshed and deepened his knowledge and understanding recently by a field trip with a respected leader. You are in the best of hands with Paul and leave at sunset so much more informed and appreciative of the people of this land

Stunning landscape. Amazing geographical feature. Interesting stories. The bbq dinner wasn’t worth going, it would have been better to go to Kings Canyon.
