I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I never expected this. The whole trip was great The driver the guide the coach all excellent Uluru was an amazing spiritual experience Yes that sounds over the top but it truly was. I had a great day In the evening we saw the sunset over Uluru Then the BBQ which was so professionally run you’d have thought chefs had done it. Thank you for creating memories I will keep for ever

It is a jam-packed day that lasts almost 24 hours. Well worth the long bus ride. Little stops along the way make you appreciate the nature and the place. Sunset dinner at the end is definitely the highlight and is an amazing way to end the day. Our driver Yad did a fantastic job driving and taking us around!

Trip was very well organised and carefully thought through. It was a long day but it didn’t feel like it .
