The reliability and quality service of AAT Kings delivered on all fronts. This was an enriching learning experience. Basically, a great way to be introduced to the aborigine culture. We respect the choice of the aborigine council to prohibit picture taking in some parts of the tour, but as a tourist we do leave a bit disappointed as some scenes would have been gorgeous in our photography collection. BEWARE, this is a paced 11 km (7 mile) walk, done over only a few short hours in the morning. If you feel that the previous may be a challenge, perhaps you may want to consider the Segway tour with another outfitter. Regardless of which way you decide to tour Uluru... going around this geological and cultural wonder is a MUST ACTIVITY !

Anna was knowledgeable and gave us great information while we walked around the rock. She kept all of us moving between stops.

My wife and I spent a week at Ayer's Rock Resort and did a number of AATKings tours during our stay. I've been a hotel concierge for decades and I can't help but cast a critical eye on my colleagues in hospitality and tourism, (even when I'm on holiday.) I was surprised and impressed that all of the tour guides and drivers we encountered were young women, who I understand make up about 50% of their team. I'm not a person who is given to hyperbole or flattery but the AATKings team members who showed us around Uluru and Kata Tjuta were of an exceptionally high standard. Special mention must go to driver Sara and guide Anna who took us on the Uluru Morning Guided Base Walk. These ladies were friendly, welcoming and good humoured even at the early hour. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very solicitous of everybody's welfare. I don't know Anna's professional background but I learned more about indigenous culture in one morning than I had from 50 years of living in this country. Her commentary as we rode the bus and walked around the rock was entertaining, illuminating and engaging yet profound. This was not your standard, robotic commentary with the the same bad jokes you know they tell every time. (Anna, if you're reading this, the song I mentioned is Redgum's "Last Frontier" - but it has to be the live version!) Kudos to AATKings! I would recommend them to anyone.

Mimi was a beautiful, sensitive & knowledgeable driver & guide. Totally recommend. The lovely Sheridan was newer to this fantastic career change from truck guiding to tour guiding and also did brilliantly with telling us about the First Nations peoples’ stories & culture. A great way to explore & experience Uluru

We had indigenous guides who were wonderful we leant so much then had a painting lesson which was fun then spent time in the Cultural Centre. Mimi who was our AAT tour leader was excellent. Very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend without hesitation.

I have previously done this walk with another company and thoroughly enjoyed it. This time I thought I would give AAT kings a go, but never again. This was one of the worst tours I've ever been on and definitely not worth the money. The tour guide was new - she was very nice but didn't have much knowledge. They also had another guide with her and it was his first time and he was very aggorant and rude. They weren't clear about when we could and couldn't take photos (which is clearly marked by signs) and then the male guide would tell the lady guide off about it infront of the whole group, and constantly undermine her. It was rude and unprofessional. I'm glad I did this with another company previous as I had a great experience with them. This company hardly gave us any information apart from the 3 stories. I could've and wished I just walked around the rock and read the signs myself. I would not recommend this tour to anyone.

Perfect way to experience Uluru and appreciate the unique surroundings and culture. The walk is a great way to observe the different facets of Uluru. Along the way you can hear some interesting, well told stories of the local culture which adds to the overall experience. Our guide for the day, Tyneal was knowledgeable and interesting as was our driver Mimi. We had the pleasure of having Mimi on our tour the day before on the Kata Tjuta valley of the winds tour and her knowledge and people skills are exceptional. Would recommend both tours to those that like to walk and take in the landscape.
