The credit for our having an awesome time at Uluru goes to the Tour drivers and their guides at AAT Kings. Frank, Jason and the others really ensured you had a great time. I wish I could remember all of their names, for they all deserve the credit for their professionalism and humour. Not having had an opportunity to travel very often in my lifetime and although it was only for a few days, it was an excellent holiday. Thank you AATKing's tour drivers / guides and Amanda for booking our trip. Visiting Uluru for the first time is an experience I will remember happily, the peace and quiet is surreal, the activities are enjoyable and the staff are friendly. Accomodation is great and very clean, food is expensive. No flies, nice warm days but very cold early mornings, recommend beanie, gloves in May. Jenny

Stayed at Sails in the Desert. A really cool hotel. Everything was taken care of including pick up from airport. At the proper time we boarded the bus and weteb driven by Aaron and Gary. They were great. Very genuine and really love their jobs Saw the sunset and it was amazing. Totally recommend this company and tour.

Would have booked extra tours if we had the time. Knowledgeable and engaging guides. Keep you hydrated and gotta love those cold red towels. The singalong on the trip back from sunset tour was added bonus.

We had a very nice tour with schedules well planned and executed. Staff were well prepared, friendly, helpful and concern of our wellbeing. In every stop or waiting we always have snacks, water or coffee. I would just add more time for tracking for the people who wish to do that.

We initially booked for a two- day stay to see Uluru and Kata Tjuta then added a third day to do the Kings Canyon trip. We were more than a little surprised to find that our extra day's accommodation cost us an extra $600. This didn't even include breakfast! We feel very much like this was presented to us as 'take it or leave it'. When we asked why it wasn't possible to have breakfast included in this price we were to!d - after a two day delay - that we didn't need it as the tours left early in the morning. That may be the case but we should, therefore, have been provided with a packed breakfast. This may all seem like a minor issue but my point is that we never felt like the people at AAT/Kings had our best interests at heart. They took their time answering our queries and, as I've already said, the general sense was 'take it or leave it'.

very good for those who do not have more time to spend at the area

This is a very intensive tour that depends on a number of areas - airline, hotel, tour company - to go well or it turns into an endurance contest. In our case the first tour iwasat 3:15, but you couldn't check-in at the hotel until 3! Added to the stress, our room was at the very end of the hotel complex, So especially for older guests we are 73, trying to get an early room assigned, running to the faraway room, and then back to the reception area was a real hustle. The tour was very good, but the hassle on arrival together with the heat and long day - back to the hotel about 10:30 if you do the barbecue- took it's toll, especially since we were supposed to meet the next morning at 5:15 for the second tour. That tight timeframe was shortened more because we had trouble with the A/C when we returned to the room that got us to bed after midnight. We were exhausted and decided to skip the second day tour. A shout out for the star talk after rhe barbecue the sky was magnificent and the talk, spectacular!

We only had a short time to try to capture everything, which in the end was positive and negative, It feels like we did most of the main events offered by the tour companies, which were breathtaking, I think realistically we should have only done the sunset, with the BBQ which was excellent. but we did the sunrise also, which was a very early morning. everything was breathtaking, but we only spent about 5 hrs in our hotel room, so instead of the most expensive, we should have chosen the cheapest. the rooms were lovely, but we couldn't appreciate it.
