Our tour guide was a 20 year old, mulleted Melbourner named Jakob. He was an exceptional guide. Our three hour hike along the hike was packed with fascination information both geological and biological. Like many features in nature, water had the most dramatic impact on this canyon. 450 million years ago this rock formation was the sea bed in an ocean. These fossilised ripples were seen throughout the trail. Furthermore, the dramatic canyon expands in size because of rainwater and its impact. The plant life had developed complex systems of mating in these harsh conditions. Water was used and stored efficiently. The aptly named 'Garden of Eden' showcased the storage capacity for rainwater. Unsurprisingly, lush green trees grew in this area. One aspect of this trip which impressed me was the depth and variety of the knowledge of our guide Jakob. Only 20 years old and a temporary transplant from Melbourne, there was never a question asked in which an answer evaded him.
Ryan was an incredible guide. He was truly passionate about the content he was sharing and very knowledgeable. Above all, he was just a great guy. I couldn’t recommend him higher. The tour itself was also spectacular. Uluru is even more amazing than you could ever imagine. The mix of driving and walking was perfect, and the sunset setup with drinks and treats was really lovely. I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything with this tour.
Our guide Dan was so informative. We loved walking around the whole base learning the stories of Uluru and what each marking on the Rock meant. I'd really recommend this tour, instead of blindly walking around you gain great insight into the significance of this beautiful place and it's people.
Good, comfortable bus. John was a very knowledgeable, interesting and charming guide, who has a great passion for this part of our country which showed through his commentary. He also has excellent wine pouring skills!
Telling of the dreamtime stories gives you a deeper understanding to how sacred this place is for the traditional owners and why you feel a strong inner energy when around Uluru.
