We went on a cool morning, and were glad of our down vests, but much easier walking in the cold than in the heat. It was not too fast and not too slow for me, although a couple of stragglers at the back held everyone up. Enough stops to rest every 40 - 50 minutes, but no shade, and no cover when it rained. Good breakfast bag that we raided before the walk and at the 2/3 stop along the way. The guide had only been doing this tour a few months so would have preferred an indigenous ranger, but she did well enough. Lots of interesting places where photography is not allowed, but lots of other photo ops available. If I was doing this again, I'd just hire a car for a few days and do this on our own - it's easy to find the track, and you have more flexibility and options. This was supposed to be a sunrise walk, but sunrise had occurred well before we even got to the rock.

An awesome walking tour filled with information by the awesome guides Damien and Dax. Great for most fitness levels. Not rushed and a great way to experience this place of wonder.

This tour is a must! The overall experience is breathtaking! Our guides Michelle and Steph was so lovely and extremely informative. They told the stories of each area in such an interesting way and were able to answer any questions. The time flew as we took in every detail and were encompassed by the cultural significances. The breakfast provided was ample and easy to eat and digest for a long walk. The stop for tea and biscuits was a nice way to stop and process and prepare for the final path to the bus.

We were guided on an Uluru base walk by Steph, Damian and Rob. The crew was organized, professional and thought of everything we needed. Steph is a brilliant guide. She is well spoken, a great story teller and very knowledgeable, bringing many of the Tjukurpa to life for us.. She was the best guide we had. The whole experience was a wonderful way for us to kick start our trip, giving us a lot more context to everything else we saw. It really helped us gain an understanding of the Anangu's culture. Thank you!

Cute breakfast snacks followed by a walk around Uluru. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and their knowledge of the local Indigenous culture was extensive. The walk included local flora information and allowed you to get close to the rock whilst also observing this from afar. The walk states it is 10km however, when tracked on our watch it was more like 14km. An easy walk and the break at the mid point for breakfast, tea and coffee was a good chance to rest. The flys were annoying and should have just got a fly net. Stephanie was our guide and she was incredible, witty, kind and knowledgeable. We also had Damien who was learning the ropes and did a great job. I especially loved the photos of all the local animals described in the stories he spoke about on the bus on the way back. Rob our driver was polite and got the job done. Stephanie you killed it! Best guide we have had on our trip! The information alone made it worth the guided experience. Thanks everyone.
