My most memorable moment was the visit to the Muṯitjulu waterhole, so serene and peaceful. Wayne was our excellent guide giving us a wonderful wealth of information in a very interesting way. Breakfast was delicious and the percolated hot coffee was so welcome. A fantastic few hours. We were lucky it was the first day of sunshine after all the rain at Uluṟu.

Timing was perfect for the beautiful sunrise, sharing breakfast with fellow passengers and our driver, Mick was very informative. An extra congratulations to Mick who proved to be the best guide of all the tours I’ve done. A great morning.

We learnt so much from our truly excellent guide Wayne. He really went above and beyond for us and was great with the kids. 3 hours was the perfect amount of time for 14, 11 and 9.

All four in our group thoroughly enjoyed this special experience. John our guide was a genuine old guy with lots of experience at Uluru. We were picked up on time, John made an unscheduled stop so that we could get the best view of the sun rise and a great photo opportunity. Our breakfast was simple yet delicious, as much as you could eat museli, fruit and a great banana bread all washed down with as much tea, coffee and juice as you wanted. We then moved on to the Mutajula waterhole. John explained the messages given in the rock art and the waterhole was a green haven amongst the dry desert landscape. Take a fly veil, available at the IGA at the resort area and enjoy the sunrise at Uluru.

Superb tour. Our guide Wayne was fantastic & went above & beyond tour inclusions. Only ourselves & another couple with their 2 grandkids. Wayne was so accommodating & really great with the kids. He took us to 3 other spots on top of the itinerary. A great learning & spiritual experience. Highly recommend. 5 star tour. Thanks Wayne.

John was a fantastic guide - fun, informative and so optimistic. There were only 4 of us on our sunrise breakfast tour (very sad for the tour companies and employees at the moment) but how lucky we were to see Uluru with only us there! Highly recommend this tour - the wall art and the stories are fascinating and John answers all your questions with a smile. The banana bread was AMAZING:) Please go and visit, support the tour operators, hotel and cafes out there!
