Superb tour. Our guide Wayne was fantastic & went above & beyond tour inclusions. Only ourselves & another couple with their 2 grandkids. Wayne was so accommodating & really great with the kids. He took us to 3 other spots on top of the itinerary. A great learning & spiritual experience. Highly recommend. 5 star tour. Thanks Wayne.

John was a fantastic guide - fun, informative and so optimistic. There were only 4 of us on our sunrise breakfast tour (very sad for the tour companies and employees at the moment) but how lucky we were to see Uluru with only us there! Highly recommend this tour - the wall art and the stories are fascinating and John answers all your questions with a smile. The banana bread was AMAZING:) Please go and visit, support the tour operators, hotel and cafes out there!

Great start to your day! Don't let the early rise put you off. This is one view you don't want to miss out on! Being there when Uluru and its wildlife is awakening is BREATH TAKING. If going in dry season, it can be 'fresh' so wrap up. Decent jacket and beanies might be needed. Breakfast is good, selection of cereals, cereal bars, banana bread. Warm cuppas provided of tea and coffee. Filled us up. Toilet stop provided before proceeding to Kuniya Walk. Sharon our guide was phenomenal, very knowledgable, kind and brought light hearted banter to the tour. At Mutijulu Waterhole (part of Kuniya Walk) she had a wealth of info to give on wildlife, plants, even some on the aboriginal rock art (very sacred among the Anangu culture). It is a privilege they share this with us tourists. She was only too happy to help you and encouraged your questions!

Guided walk and commentary , including Mutitjulu waterhole, were the main reasons for taking this tour, as we had previously seen a sunrise, from a different vantage point. And we were not disappointed!

Great small group tour. Connor our guide was fantastic and was very knowledgeable about the local culture and the area. The tour was very well organised and all on time. Very nice simple breakfast while watching the sun rise over Uluru and then very informative walk into Mutijulu water hole before a drive around the base of Uluru. Would definitely recommend this tour.

What a way to start the day. Stunning sunrise but then again every sunrise you see is stunning rise as we get older. The drive out in the brisk morning air the different shades of light as the sun climbs the chatting around the breakfast. Followed by a leisurely walk down to the waterhole where Dan passes on his knowledge of the The Waterhole and surrounding area. Thank you Dan most enjoyable.

We were really pressed with this tour. The guide, Connor, was excellent and very informative. The tour worked really well, breakfast watching the sunrise was an excellent. The car park was almost deserted which made it even more special
