WE HAD A FABULOUS TOUR. LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. JESS AND ANDY WERE OUR GUIDES, TELLING US THE HISTORY WITH THE STORIES OF THE FIRST NATIONS PEOPLE. THE GROUND WAS FLAT. THE WALK WAS EASY , NOT TO FAR. THEN AFTER YOU GO TO ANOTHER SPOT A LITTLE BIT AWAY TO ENJOY THE SUNSET WITH A WINE AND A NIBBLE. OR YOU CAN STAY AND HAVE A BBQ.

Good to book in advance & ensure that the total cost has covered the entry fee of the national park to save up the trouble of buying a park pass.

Anna and Jason our Tour Guide and Driver were great. So much knowledge to take in. Rain on Uluru special day.

Prompt pick up, informative tour. Great dinner, spectacular views of Uluru at Sunset

Great experience! Special thanks for the tour guide’s dedication for making our day!
