The sunrise breakfast tour to Kata Tjuta was an easy and informative morning with beautiful sunrise views of both Uluru and Kata Tjuta from a viewing platform that is the first stop on the tour. On the way to the viewing platform our guide John began what would become an engaging and interesting commentary on the history and the geology of Kata Tjuta. John was excellent with his knowledge and his friendly professionalism. He catered for everyone in the group, ranging from our young kids to the more mature crowd, with his rapport. We stopped for breakfast at a picnic area with perfect views of Kata Tjuta. Breakfast was muesli, fruit cups, tea/coffee/hot chocolate and raisin toast, which John laid out very nicely with table clothes and a little gas powered camp stove. We then got back on the Mercedes sprinter bus and arrived at Walpa Gorge where we made a short but rocky climb to a beautiful vantage point, taking breaks to here more about the geology. Afterwards we climbed back down and returned to the resort in the bus. On the return journey we learnt about the history of land rights in the area and more about the Anangu people's experience. Overall it was a very comfortable and fascinating experience. Highly recommend.

Expertly run tour, good amount of commentary (but not too much). Amazing sunrise viewing area, with a view of Uluru also. Simple continental breakfast near Kata Tjuta. Moderate-difficulty walk into Walpa Gorge - great explanation of the geological forces that created Kata Tjuta (and Uluru). We had some slower people with us, and the guide, Connor, handled efficiently and compassionately. Good vehicle - much better than the 50+ seat busses of other touring companies. Overall good tour and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Central Australia.

John was a very informative, experienced guide, with great respect for and insights into the Aboriginal history, culture and justice issues in this area. He also spoke of the geology, the ancientness of the formations, and stopped at spots to illustrate the composition of the rocks. The small group works well, far more personal than the huge coaches. Breakfast was tasty, well timed and well organised. Kata Juta doesn't need my review - it is spectacularly beautiful and an inspiring walk through the gorge.

We didn't know about Kata Tjuta before our trip but it was good to explore this as well as Uluru. Excellent tour - worth the early start ! Ryan was very informative - we learnt lots. The scenery was spectacular and the walk into Kata Tjuta to the creek (approx 1.5 km each way) The breakfast was very welcome. We were collected from and returned back to the hotel - it was all very easy. Great value Thank you.

We had an early morning pickup from Sails, 4.45 by our lovely guide John. We had a small seater van with 11 in our group. We drove to the base of Kata Tjuta where John organized a brekky of raisin toast, cereal and coffee before our walk to Kata tjuta. Today was cold and wetter than we were expecting. 17 degrees and very strong winds (which is common). We also experienced heavy rain which was also predicted but very rare. The rain enabled us to witness many waterfalls and small streams that is also very rare. John made the most of enabling us to experience how amazing water can be in the desert. Not many get that experience. John was a very informative guide and I would definitely recommend this tour. I would suggest to Siet tours to offer plastic ponchos in case of rain as the The field of light offered. Luckily we still had them from the night before.

We had a very informative and fun morning with Connor this morning. What an excellent guide and all round nice guy who is obviously passionate about his work and an asset to Seit tours. Karyn from bookings - you were so helpful and thank you for rebooking us on a morning tour instead of the afternoon we originally had booked because we had a couple of very hot days (39-40 degrees) All round we loved all the tours we did with your company whilst we were here - well done 👍🏻

What a great tour our guide Charlotte was great at first I thought a French guide in the outback how good can this be. I was wrong Charlotte was great full of local aboriginal knowledge and about the land. She was very accommodating making sure we were all good while on the walk, breakfast was great vehicle air conditioned. I can not fault the tour or Charlotte as a guide. She really enjoys her work.
