A great 3 hour round trip to see Kata Tjuta and walk up a part of this amazing rock. There were 2 couples and our guide, Charlie, who gave us lots of interesting and informative information about the area, history and culture. We needed to return on time to get to another tour and he was really accommodating to ensure we made it.

We did the Kata Tjuta Domes tour of Walpa Gorge with Connor from SEIT and he did a fantastic job explaining the way life was in the National Park and how the Anangu people lived during these times. Due to the weather being in the mid 40s, we were not able to complete the trek into the Walpa Gorge for our safety. Most places in the National Park close the treks if it reaches beyond 36C which it did majority of the time we were there. However, not to worry as Connor took us to the Kata Tjuta Viewing Deck which was absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend this tour as Kata Tjuta is often overlooked for Uluru but is just as beautiful. Definitely would recommend going in the early mornings if you are going in the summer months or going during the winter. Don't forget your fly nets!

Our guide Ryan was very knowledgeable and passionate about Kata Tjuta. The geological and cultural history of this formation is very interesting. I recommend a visit if you are visiting the Red Centre.

If you go on this tour make sure you ask for John! He was a supurd guide with an abundance of knowledge, enthusiasm and life experience. His excitement and interest was infectious. He was attentive to every member of the group and was fascinating to speak to. Thank you John for making this an amazing experience.

Amazing geology, and very knowledgeable tour guide. Lots to see and photograph, with plenty of walking to burn off the calories too.

I'm not giving this a lower rating because (a) it's my own fault for booking the afternoon tour (I booked too late to get the morning tour) and (b) I liked the tour guide. However, it was quite hot when we went, hot enough that my wife and I agreed she should not go. I was the first one picked up and told my guide this. After we picked up the others and drove out there, upon our arrival to Kata Tjuta our guide informed us that SEIT had a policy that once it hit a certain temperature they only complete half the hike. So my first thought was "Why didn't you mention this at booking? Why didn't you tell me this when you picked me up and knew I was leaving my wife behind?" Then in addition, once we get into Kata Tjuta and would go no further, I noticed that NO OTHER GROUP was turning back. Only ours. This was quite frustrating. So I do not recommend booking the afternoon tour when there is any chance that it might get too hot.
