We were picked up at our hotel right on time and then we drove to a vantage point near Uluru to have a breakfast snack and coffee, and wait for the sunrise. It had rained quite a lot the night before so we were greeted by a shroud of fog over Uluru. So sunrise was a bust. After breakfast we went for a short walk to the waterhole (which was quite full of water from the rain) and drove around the base of Uluru. It was a great morning.

It was an early start to see Uluru at sunrise, but it was worth it. We enjoyed a pleasant breakfast as we watched the rock change colour as more of the sun shone on it. There were also times when we saw it with cloud on the top, something we were told did not often happen.

Gareth was our amazing tour guide who gave us lots of interesting information about Uluru and the surrounding area. Breakfast was set up easily and enjoyable. Would recommend this tour.

the sunrise was amazing - a very spiritual experience. The location was by a road - but was okay. our Driver and guide for our walk was very good. I had unfortunately done the same walk with the sunset group the day before - but it was interesting that the guides told different stories.
The breakfast was bit disappointing as I don't like bananas or dried fruit and - banana loaf and cereal bars were on offer. I did have a coffee and cereal.
I would do it again and recommend it.

It was great, came real close to Uluru.

Great tour! Georgia, our guide, was knowledgeable and clear in her explanations. Sunrise is the best time to explore Uluru as afternoons get very hot. We highly recommend Seit tours

A brilliant trip. Breakfast by the roadside as the sun rises over Uluru. Then a trip to the water hole which also allows you to get up close to Uluru. And finally a trip around the base of Uluru, giving us an impression from all sides. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

Guided walk and commentary , including Mutitjulu waterhole, were the main reasons for taking this tour, as we had previously seen a sunrise, from a different vantage point. And we were not disappointed!
