A great morning was had watching the sunrise on Uluru. Had a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, named Alex, who answered all the questions we had. A great experience without the need to climb it. Would highly recommend this tour to others. included a simple breakfast of cereal breakfast bars, fruit cup, juice, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Hot water was provided in flask. Food was more than enough to keep you going on this walk. Would recommend bringing water, warm clothes for the morning and a fly night for late morning as the flys can be annoying.

Sol and Altethia were great guides. They explained the aboriginal sites and points of interest clearly and allowed time to appreciate the site at a comfortable pace. They were both very personable and did a great time at sharing aboriginal stories that explained features in the rock. Only wish is that the breakfast stop had been more midway.

Philip and Rachel were fabulous. They had so much knowledge and enjoyed sharing it with us. I especially liked that our group was smaller!

Peaceful walk at a good pace brisk enough, but with plenty of time for photos, taking in the sights and sounds and listening to stories. We were led by a lovely and well informed guide, and it was a privilege to be in such a magical place. It was a good time of year to do the walk temperature between 8 and 20 degrees, and not too early a start compared to summer. The desert was looking very green, and there were lots of birds around, particularly at the water hole. It was exceptionally good.

This was my first tour, after arriving in Uluru and I was thrilled to come away, having learnt so much from our 2 guides, Lachie and Gareth. They were absolutely amazing!!!!!!!! They told us the stories of the Anangu people and how they lived, as we walked along at a leisurely pace and pointed out and named all the types of trees and birds we saw along the way. It was as amazing journey, walking beside The Rock and imaging what it would have been like to live, as these people did, for sooooo many years!!!! Lachie was a font of information and made the walk so informative, I was really thrilled. We sat and had an enjoyable breakfast half way through the walk, over looking the area where you are permitted to climb. I am pleased to say it was closed on this particular day, but some people were still flaunting the rules and attempting to climb a small area. I sincerely look forward to the climb being closed for good!!
I can highly recommend this trip, rather than walk the walk by yourself, as you learn soooo much. Thank you again, Lachie and Gareth.

Absolutely fabulous way to take in the majesty of this sacred site. Our guide provided an educational commentary on the indigenous Australians and the significance of the site.

Las guias fueron muy atentas y simpáticas. Son unos 12km, el camino es fácil aunque con el calor el final se hace un poco más duro. Uluru es impresionante!! Merece la pena hacer el tour!

The Victor van picked us up from our hotel on time at 5 am with a total of 10 in our group. Sebastian ( Seb ) our guide gave a good intro for the day on our short drive to the rock.
An easy flat 4 hour walk with Seb stopping regular for informative talks.
Would definitely recommend this tour with Viator.

Enjoyed the walk around the base, set at a nice pace and provided with sufficient refreshments for the journey. The Guide was very passionate about the area and was well rehearsed, but suggest a little less preaching in regard to behaviour and respect for Uluru. Allow people to discover its wonders themselves. Enjoyed being in a smaller group.

We were really excited to do this tour. However, we were very disappointed in the overall experience. At the beginning of the tour, our guide announced that it was his last day with the company and was moving to New Zealand. Given that, his heart was not in his tour. He rushed us through the tour and when we stopped to hear a story about Uluru, he didn’t wait for the whole group to arrive. There were only 8 of us in the tour and he was very impatient and couldn’t wait 10 extra seconds for all of us before telling the information. Most of the time, he walked very far ahead of the whole group talking only to the woman he was training. He asked us if we had other tours, and when he heard that most were going to Kata Tjuta the next day, he wasn’t going to tell us about the geology. Just overall, worst guide we have ever had and we have done many Viator tours and other tours. I do not recommend this tour.
