Our tour guide Pete (Prince Harry) was informative and educational and very supportive as we had an elderly lady traveling with us who was slow. Thanks Pete for the experience and showing us a magical part of Central Australia.
Highly recommend this tour.

Our tour to Kata Tjuta sunrise was brilliant. Even though it was drizzling rain at times and overcast, it was still great.
Our tour guide Nadia was excellent, we learnt so much about everything and anything to do with Kata Tjuta, Uluru and surrounds.
Breakfast was delicious. The walk into Walpa Gorge was stunning and really worth while. Loved the small group experience too. Couldn't fault anything, it was great from start to finish.

Wonderful, small group and the two guides Emily and Shanna were brilliant in terms of cultural, historic and botanical knowledge. This dawn breakfast tour was unique.

The trekk was not conplicated at all, but very interesting specually because our guide Emily was so fun to hear when she told us the stories behind the magestic Kata Juta formations. The flies where really annoying, but despite that the entire was really interesting and fun.

The tour was convenient and Dan, our guide, did a great job. We had wonderful views of Uluru during the sunrise, had a nice breakfast of fruit toast and cereal, and then learned some of the local geography prior to taking a hike at Kata Tjuta. We saw a couple of kangaroos as well!

I enjoyed it totally. The walk is easy and the view is extraordinary. The guide gave us good and interesting information of the rock formation, the plants and aboriginal traditions.

Our guide who was from South Korea was wonderful. The lookout where we watched the sunrise was wonderful since we could see both Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Kata Tjuta came alive with beautiful shades of red with the sunrise. We had a wonderful breakfast at a picnic area near Kata Tjuta. The climb at Kata Tjuta was rocky and very uneven. It was difficult to navigate at times. If you have any mobility difficulties, do not take this tour. The area where we climbed was lovely, but you were only seeing a part of it. On our way back to the hotel, the guide stopped at a great place to view Kata Tjuta more fully. Actually, I rated this tour a three since you would be better to book a helicopter tour. You would see the whole area more completely than you did on this tour.

For the first part of the tour you visit a sunrise view platform where one gets great views of the sun coming up behind Uluru and over the Olgas. It was cold and windy, so the walk up Walpa George was a little tough on us older folks. Worth seeing once. Enjoyed the guide.
