What an incredible afternoon! Our driver Bruce was very informative and helpful. It was extremely hot and the going was quite difficult for me as I am 6 months post a knee replacement but persevered to the end and Bruce kept checking to see I was OK. Learning about the formation of Kata Tjuta and its significance to the aboriginal people was very fulfilling even to my husband and I who were the only Aussies in the group. The fresh cold water and iced facecloths to help us cool down at the end of the walk were inspirational. Would highly recommend this tour for the insight it brings. Being amongst the grandeur of such a feature makes you feel very insignificant indeed.

Excellent tour. Our guide Brett was attentive and made sure we all had enough water. Because of the heat the walk was shorter than usual but it was good. If we had been on our own we would have probably underestimated the heat and would have suffered from exhaustion. Group size was good.

Our small group tour to Kata Tjuta began on November 13 with our pick-up at the Desert Garden Hotel at 14:30 by SEIT Outback Australia. It took nearly 45 minutes to travel by small bus to Kata Tjuta where the group hiked into a mountainous area with explanations of some of the geology and flora provided on the way. It was not a strenuous walk but hot for which water was provided. There were also explanations of some of the Anunu beliefs involving the Kata Tjuta.

Really good tour but I would not do it again in the afternoon heat. Our guide was extremely helpful in overcoming the heat factor with water spray, iced towels and electrolyte drink.

Very good. but no refreshments offered. Guide nice and relaxed with lots of info. Walk up to the platform quite risky with lots of rocks, etc, but this was not the guide's fault. Views a little disappointing, expected more.

Tour was cut short as the driver/guide couldn't find persons supposed to be booked on this tour. That wasn't her fault but time taken driving back to the resort searching for these people who apparently never really existed.

Interesting and a learning experience. It would have been better except for the flies. Nothing you can do about nature though.

James T 2016-05-07

Everything ran smoothly and on time but the weather was against us as it was very hot and the flies b were a real pain. I can't blame the tour but the time spent was unpleasant.
