We were happy with everything about our tour. The information and insights provided about sacred sites by our friendly, informative guide was exactly what we hoped it would be.

Worst experience we have ever had. The driver picked up the wrong customers and left the other customers feeling totally lost

We note that the EMU RUN website recommends ‘1 Day Uluru & Kata Tjuta Tour’ as their best Uluru tour. We would have been happy to book this full day tour but it was already fully booked. At $99, The 2.5hr return ‘Uluru Sacred Sites Tour’ seemed expensive but we felt that this would at least give us insight into the aboriginal culture to build on the independent walk we had done the day before. What we did not realise was that the tour was basically ‘piggy backed’ onto the full day tour. Everything revolved around the needs of the full-day tour and we felt little more than seat-fillers and 2nd class citizens. We were late setting off through no fault of our own but because 2 others were late arriving at the pick-up point. • First stop was purely to pick up full day participants after their morning drop-off. We were asked to step off the bus and enable those people to resume their original seats. We could then take up any of those that were left. • At the 2 main walk sites for our tour, we were given clear and interesting cultural information but always reminded that we were ‘running late’ (for the main group BBQ/Sunset viewing). We had thought that the tour would be extended to compensate for the late start and will always wonder whether the content was rushed or condensed to catch-up some time. • On the return journey, there was a 10-minute toilet stop which no-one actually needed except the tour guide needing to wash his hands prior to preparation of the BBQ • ...then there was was anticipatory talk of the BBQ and ice-cold drinks (to which, of course, we were not a party) • At the said BBQ/Sunset viewing area another bus was to return us to our resort but it had left to pick up other BBQ participants so we were required to wait for its return (whilst the BBQ was being prepared). There was some redemption of our situation when we were offered a wine & beer to drink whilst waiting but this was soon dashed when the returning bus arrived and we were asked to ‘down’ our drinks so as not to keep IT waiting! We did a different EMU RUN full day tour in the West MacDonnell Ranges and thoroughly enjoyed it - but we do NOT recommend this one.

Tour Guide Lauren was great. I was travelling with my 75 yr old father who thought the tour was a nice pace and informative. We liked the small group size.

The sheer scale of Uluru left me in awe. A natural wonder to behold. Enjoyed learning about the Mala people and their stories. By law you must take drinking water with you to the national park. Our Guide was knowledgable which is important. The pace was fast making so you had to be quick taking photos.

Overall it was a very good tour. I would have preferred for the guide to be wearing a mask, as it would have encouraged the other guests to also wear a mask. It was risky for us to travel to NT with the risk of 7 day quarantine if we get covid. Having those around us wear masks in the van would help eliminate risk of transmission. It was a hot day but found the shady stops were great and allowed us to cool down just enough before moving on.
