It is a very exciting experience! Love the beautiful views of Uluru and Kata Tjuta domes and gorges. Sunrise and Sunset views are great too. We were lucky enough that on our sunset view, there was a Rainbow at Uluru!

AAT Kings tour was excellent from airport pick-up to the quality of the hotel Sails in the Desert, the tour guides and commentary to the incredible sites of Uluru and Katya Tjuta. The Sounds of Silence Dinner with the excellent stargazing show was also a highlight.

A remarkable area with two unique and very different land formations. It was a bit cloudy the first night so that the sun setting on Uluru was not much, but the sunset itself was spectacular on the wispy clouds. Similarly, the next sunrise was affected by the clouds, but the evening sunset was excellent. We were hoping for a spectacular star viewing opportunity but the clouds and the full moon shut out most of the stars.
We stayed at the Outback Pioneer Hotel. It is somewhat basic with cinder block walls but the room was comfortable and very adequate. Just a note, most of the tours require you to carry a liter of water each, so saving empty plastic bottles to refill could save a few dollars on water costs.

AAT Kings provided a very organized and informative tour of this amazing attraction. I'm glad we included this tour in our visit to Australia.

Unfortunately I missed the tour, the other two tours I booked with viator Cairns and Auckland NZ were terrific , I'm 100 sure this one would have been as good as the other ones

AAT Kings had top of the line coaches and drivers. Definitely the best in the area. Our tour guides were absolutely amazing. Uluru is the journey of a lifetime. We are all very appreciative of this awesome experience!!!

Susan H 2016-06-23

Uluru is breathtaking. We are so grateful to the tour guides! They taught us so much about this very sacred place and showed us amazing places to experience the beauty. We are traveling with our teenagers and they were also amazed as well. Truly an amazing and unforgettable experience.

Sounds of silence dinner and sunset

Always very nice with excellent service meeting new friends and of course the background scenery was fantastic. Having said that the only reason I don’t give it five stars is that I think the whole event is way overpriced

Sandra H 2015-12-05

Everything was so well organized. The Sounds of Silence Dinner was certainly one of the highlights. We loved the sunset more than the sunrise at Uluru, but are glad we have seen both. The colour changing of the rock is something you have to see !! Thank you AAT Kings and Viator to make our trip so amazing !!
