After days of travelling on our own it was great to be able sit back and be spoilt with professional driving by Garry and commentary by John. A very relaxing experience it’s those special pieces of information that make the difference..Thank you After our trip we went back to spend more time at some favourite spots to do more exploring.

Penny_Q May 2021

Incredible view and super friendly staffs. I enjoyed everything about the tour! The walk wasn’t difficult and the view is definitely worth it.

lizaP1920YA May 2021

John, our guide and driver, Sara were excellent in every aspect, courteous, punctual, informative. The tour was just the right length of time. A perfect way to learn about and enjoy these amazing cultural places

Lyn_G May 2021

Our guide Dillon was excellent which made the tour more enjoyable. The tour was not rushed, it was informative and an experience which I will value

Meljem234 April 2021

Absolutely fantastic! Highly recommend this tour and any tour that AAT Kings run. We did 3 tours with them. The tour guides - all of them including the driver who often runs the tour also - are amazing! Light hearted, approachable, friendly, the guides are full of information on the environment, culture and history of the area. All the guides were fabulous and I wish I could remember all their names! Jacob ran this particular, tour he was just wonderful. I can not speak highly enough of how this operation is run. I also appreciate that one of AAT Kings priorities is ensuring that we all respect and care for the environment while on tour.

Jan_M March 2021

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Dave, our driver and Dillon, our guide were very informative, interesting and fun. Made our day.

SuzanneCridge March 2021

A fabulous trip with Dylan and Jack starting with a stunning Uluru sunrise then a drive to Walpa Gorge. Great team, Dylan guiding and Jack driving. Their friendly warm manner, entertaining stories and knowledge of the area made it a very engaging experience. Their friendly tips and thoughtful insights made it all easy. The Walpa Gorge walk has lots of uneven ground, but if you take your team very accessible. It had rained a few days earlier so the stream was trickling and it was very majestic and beautiful. Highly recommended. Thx Jack & Dylan- fab job!!

thambi117 December 2020

Our guide Jakob was extremely knowledgeable about the tour and its experience and definitely made the trip very enjoyable as well as fun for both adults and kids.

Maureen_F October 2020

An absolute Must Do in Uluru. This was one one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had in my own country. Every Aussie needs to see Uluru as it is one stunningly beautiful monolith and the Viator tour gave us an opportunity to be up close and personal with “The Rock”. It was very well organised, the tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly and I would highly recommend it. Thanks Viator!

alexis s March 2020

Kayla was our tat our guide and Pete was our driver. Both were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and welcoming. They were able to convey a respectful understanding of the culture of the Anangu and their ability to live with the land. The views were awesome. My only criticism is that refreshments were offered as we got off the bus to go to the sunrise viewing rather than having them available so we could have them before or after the viewing which meant that one potentially had to choose between going to the viewing of the sunrise if one walked slowly or was managing a mobility assistive device as it was difficult to walk with a hot drink in one hand and the mobility device in the other.

We have done several tours with AAT Kings in Sydney, Melbourne, and Urulu. They were all very good. Our family of 4 very much enjoyed the Uluru sunrise and Kata Tjuta half day trip. The coach bus came to pick us up at the hotel and then we headed to Uluru to watch the sun rise. On our day, there really wasn't much to see by way of the sun rise against the rock but we enjoyed the educational commentary our tour guide provided. He talked about the flora and fauna, patch fires, and the history of these aboriginal lands. We then made a stop for the bathroom and some breakfast type snacks. At Kata Tjuta, we did a hike in the valley of the winds which was both perfect and beautiful. Kata Tjuta is less traveled than Urulu but none the less peaceful. Our tour guide / bus rider was outstanding and AAT Kings delivered a wonderful morning experience for our family.

frances_k December 2019

It was well worth getting up at 4am to get to remarkable Uluru & see the "red rock" change to numerous colors as the sun rose & scattered across her surface. Remarkable, too, are the rock formations at Kata Tjuta. It's hard to describe the beauty of these monuments or the desert or to give the spiritual meaning they have. Go & experience it for yourselves.

marymulvey July 2019

We felt that the tour was too rushed for the sunrise at Uluru. It felt like a race to get to Kata Tjuta before the other coaches arrived. However, the walk through the Walpa gorge in Kata Tjuta was spectacular

LoulouVenus July 2019

Combining Uluru and Kata Tjuta was excellent. The sunrise was beautiful and the AAT King's team of Dan and Marie did a fantastic job. So knowledgable, happy and personable. Highly recommended. IMHO Kata Tjuta was fantastic to see and well worth it.

Lua A July 2019

Photos do not do Uluru and Kata Tjuta justice. The experience of seeing these two rocks up close is amazing. They both change colour as the sun hits it's surface and the historical stories are magical to listen too. Be aware that you will be walking in red dirt. Shoes and bottom of your pants will be covered. It is also quite chilly when you start the tour but warms up a little as the sun rises.

hels40u2 June 2019

This was a great experience. My guide Javier n Matt driver were great. Had good knowledge of surrounding areas as well as the valley. You have to do it. Was grouse!!!!

PETER_J June 2019

We were lucky enough to travel to Uluru in early June 2019. Sunrise was a very special time to see the rock as the colours change as the sun rises. Our tour to Kata Tjuta was great, our guide was very informative and gave us a lot of details about the area. Wherever you go around Uluru fly nets are needed if you want to avoid flies on your face. A MEMORY WE WILL NEVER FORGET.

David_B June 2019

The most beautiful place and time so that it could be thoroughly enjoyed. Tour guides who were patient and knowledgeable. We'd go back and do it again any time if we could. This was so worth what we paid for it. Uluru is breathtaking!!

pptobias May 2019

Uluru is a majestic place to visit, unless you have been there it is difficult to explain the feeling you get from the place. All the workers there are very friendly and helpful which makes for a great place to visit. Easy to get around in the transport provided or there are car hire companies, we should have taken an extra day to visit Kings Canon Pickup/drop offs from airport and other tours run like clock work

jonnym602 May 2019

I was excited to bring my friends to see Uluru and Kata Tjuta after visiting it 11 years ago. They were not disappointed. This tour was fantastic. The guides were professional and were great at helping us understand the importance of this area to the local population. Would definitely recommend.

Jason (the South African) AAT Kings took us on this tour and he was brilliant, he knew his history and his commentary was first class. Seeing Uluru change colours with the sun rising was fantastic, we got to walk around in Kata Tjuta which would be hard going for some people less mobile as it is over rocky ground. If you do this tour see if your hotel provides a takeaway breakfast as you get snacks tea and coffee only.

Valerie1450 March 2019

Hi Jason took us out on this tour. (ATT Kings) We enjoyed his suttle humour, his bright and cheery welcoming, his driving and his knowledge of the area, Australia, and the aboriginals! We really enjoyed watching Mother Nature paint the desert this morning. The trip to the Olgas was a wonderful bonus! You should give this one ago!

madlizzie04 February 2019

Myself and mum booked to do this and it is worth the really early alarm. We had Andrew as our driver and MJ as a guide. Once we got to the Uluru view point we were provided with a hot drink and biscuit to watch the sunrise behind us and Uluru in front and were advised where to go to get the best out of the colour change as the sun rose. After the sun comes up you are advised to use the facilities in the car park as they are the best ones for the excursion. We then drove out further into the bush and were lucky enough to see Feral camels just as MJ was talking about them. We had another stop to see Kata Tjuta in the distance before heading to another toilet which was a long drop toilet but advise you to use it. We then went to Kata Tjuta where we were given biscuits, crackers and top up our water containers, MJ explained more of the history and the customs as he had been on the tour bus. You can then do the walk with him where he tells you more however he does advise you are not guaranteed to get to the end of valley if you do this. I decided to do it on my own as mum had a bad ankle and didn’t fancy it as in places it is very uneven. You could really feel the magic and power here more so than at Uluru especially when the wind suddenly drops. Andrew had walked to the end and kindly took some photos of those of us that made it, however MJ says it about what you experience on your journey rather than rushing to get to the end and I really understood what he meant when I had walked it as even though there are others walking at times you are on your own. Once back on the bus we were given damp flannels which were really appreciated- my top tip is wear comfy shoes and bring a fly net as they are everywhere

Cara C April 2018

Excellent tour. Saw Uluru st sunrise then a great walk and tour of Kata Tjuta
