We note that the EMU RUN website recommends ‘1 Day Uluru & Kata Tjuta Tour’ as their best Uluru tour. We would have been happy to book this full day tour but it was already fully booked. At $99, The 2.5hr return ‘Uluru Sacred Sites Tour’ seemed expensive but we felt that this would at least give us insight into the aboriginal culture to build on the independent walk we had done the day before. What we did not realise was that the tour was basically ‘piggy backed’ onto the full day tour. Everything revolved around the needs of the full-day tour and we felt little more than seat-fillers and 2nd class citizens. We were late setting off through no fault of our own but because 2 others were late arriving at the pick-up point. • First stop was purely to pick up full day participants after their morning drop-off. We were asked to step off the bus and enable those people to resume their original seats. We could then take up any of those that were left. • At the 2 main walk sites for our tour, we were given clear and interesting cultural information but always reminded that we were ‘running late’ (for the main group BBQ/Sunset viewing). We had thought that the tour would be extended to compensate for the late start and will always wonder whether the content was rushed or condensed to catch-up some time. • On the return journey, there was a 10-minute toilet stop which no-one actually needed except the tour guide needing to wash his hands prior to preparation of the BBQ • ...then there was was anticipatory talk of the BBQ and ice-cold drinks (to which, of course, we were not a party) • At the said BBQ/Sunset viewing area another bus was to return us to our resort but it had left to pick up other BBQ participants so we were required to wait for its return (whilst the BBQ was being prepared). There was some redemption of our situation when we were offered a wine & beer to drink whilst waiting but this was soon dashed when the returning bus arrived and we were asked to ‘down’ our drinks so as not to keep IT waiting! We did a different EMU RUN full day tour in the West MacDonnell Ranges and thoroughly enjoyed it - but we do NOT recommend this one.

Tour Guide Lauren was great. I was travelling with my 75 yr old father who thought the tour was a nice pace and informative. We liked the small group size.

The sheer scale of Uluru left me in awe. A natural wonder to behold. Enjoyed learning about the Mala people and their stories. By law you must take drinking water with you to the national park. Our Guide was knowledgable which is important. The pace was fast making so you had to be quick taking photos.

Overall it was a very good tour. I would have preferred for the guide to be wearing a mask, as it would have encouraged the other guests to also wear a mask. It was risky for us to travel to NT with the risk of 7 day quarantine if we get covid. Having those around us wear masks in the van would help eliminate risk of transmission. It was a hot day but found the shady stops were great and allowed us to cool down just enough before moving on.

Last evening we went on our Uluru Sacred Sites and Sunset tour. We started at the Uluru and Kata Tjita Cultural Centre. No photography allowed inside but it was all quite interesting. We saw a presentation about bush tucker, looked at lots of art produced by local women, and were given a presentation on what all those paintings mean and the traditions upon which they draw. Then we went around the base of Uluru which is ridiculously imposing up close. Amazing to think that people were allowed to climb the rock until it was stopped two years ago. On the way to explore some more we had the opportunity to touch the rock, Then we explored some caves. There was native art on the walls and evidence of many fires on the roof. Then there was a big waterhole where even after two years the water was still contaminated by climbing tourists who had used the rock as a toilet. Charming!

We were very disappointed with this small group tour. We were added into the middle of another tour and felt rushed for the 2hrs 15min. Each area we visited was a rush to ensure the other group had their sunset BBQ. I understand it is Covid and numbers are small but we felt like an addition. The snacks- 1 hot apple and lolly snakes that have been in the bus all day. The two guides had a little disagreement when setting up the BBQ. It was rushed.

Really lovely staff but I have to say after booking a small group max 17 ppl of of ‘Uluru Sacred Sites’ tour, we were disappointed to be picked up in a full size coach with nearly 30 ppl on board. Unfortunately we had been ‘tacked on’ to a day trip from Alice Springs without being advised of this. We were looking for a local and authentic tour, hopeful of an indigenous guide, and I did not feel the tour company delivered in this or were very good communicating. This is not the staff’s fault. I get it’s Covid, but please be upfront with your clients about any changes to the tour. It spoilt it for us, and as a result I would not recommend them.

We were so lucky as we had a private tour for this experience. Our guide was warm and personable, and gave us extra stops to lookouts and a bit more time than usual as we were such a small group. Best thing about emu run is really the fact they never cancel their tours. So many other companies canceling had people stranded in Yulara with nothing to do!! Thanks Emu Run Crew at Yulara for making magic happen for us 🙌
