I wasn't prepared for the hard slog up and down Kings Canyon, but I made it with lots of help from the lovely Michelle and Jess our tour guides. It was great to visit Kings Creek Station, would have liked more time there, but understand the time constraints as the walk at Kings Canyon takes up so much of the day, as well as the travel time to get there from Yalara. Beautiful outback country to see and I am so thankful we had such an experienced driver on board with Jenny, who avoided skillfully a big red who was crossing our path, just before sunrise. Could not fault the AAT Kings team on the day. We travelled on 11 May 2022.

I was so excited to do this tour. Breakfast of undercooked bacon and cold everything else was not the best start to a long day I would suggest arranging a breakfast box from the hotel and give this a big miss. Grace, had you had taken all of your guests into consideration I am sure we all would have finished together and sharing information is probably not professional. Cant see the point in not letting everyone rest to only wait 20 minutes on the bus when everyone could have rested and arrived at the same time. Michelle what a wonderful guide, you made sure everyone was looked after, thank you for that.

We recently went on the Kings Canyon day trip from Ayers Rock Resort. Overall, we would definitely recommend it. At first we were a bit nervous about a few things. The first being the early wake up call (4am start) and the second being the rim walk. Both were actually fine!! Our advice: - Take a pillow as you’ll be on the bus for about 7 hours. - Don’t get worried about the rim walk. Yes, it’s a bit difficult but compared to Valley of the Winds, personally this one is easier. The start is 500 steps, but our tour guides stopped at 200, 400 and 500. We did plenty of stops. Up the top is long, but not super challenging. I was very disappointed with how the guides tried to convince people not to do this walk. The walk to absolutely beautiful and is definitely worth it! After the walk, we were asked to order take away lunch and eat it on the bus. The drive home was super long! We stopped at Curtain Springs and Mount Connor lookout. Not too much to see there if I’m being totally honest. Overall, a great way to see Kings Canyon is one day!

The entire walk although arduous for a 66 year old woman was certainly an experience not to be missed. We had the most wonderful guides. Michelle was exceptional with her knowledge of the region and she was so patient . Not to forget Rob the driver who was always in his best element/ funny and keeping the group in good spirits!!! Well done to all

We took the 1 day Kings Canyon trip from Uluru. Although an early start, the Canyon rim walk is an unforgettable experience. We did the walk in about 29 degrees with a slight breeze which made it very comfortable. Be sure to take plenty of water. Our experienced guides Jessie and Tyneal were informative, funny and very caring and catered for all levels of fitness and experience. Our coach driver Mitch was amazing and took great care in getting us there and back. A long day but one well worth it. The photos will never do it justice.

Jacob, Steph and Michelle were great tour guides. Jacob was extremely knowledgeable and gave us lots of interesting information during the drive. The scenery on the rim walk is absolutely amazing and well worth the effort.
