From start to finish the guides were fantastic with great knowledge and energy! Although it is a very long day it was completely worth it! Seeing the Emu’s on our first stop followed by a view of Mount Conor, and the Salt Lakes before heading to the national park to see Uluru, kata tjuta and the culture centre! The amount of history and information given was just brilliant, special thanks to Eddie our guide! A very magical place to be, the snacks provided, the breakfast, lunch and the BBQ was all first class thank you! The Sunset over Uluru and the local aboriginal art you could buy was great too, so bring some cash! Top tip - but a fly net you will need one they are everywhere!
I think it is really important to explain to people coming to the area, that the cultural norms and expectations, especially around taking photos, are not what non-indigenous people might immediately understand. These places are NOT just tourist attractions, they are sacred sites. I found that some of my fellow travellers were missing this point, maybe even didn't want to know, and just wanted pretty pictures.
A great day out, really glad we went on this trip. Was well organised and we felt looked after. There were healthy refreshments at nearly every stop and provided three really good meals throughout the day. If you are lucky enough to get Eddy as your tour guide it is truly the best experience. Eddy was so interesting to listen to and his knowledge of the areas we visited and the history made it so worth it.
This was a once in a lifetime trip! We had excellent guides and the barbecue dinner was fantastic! It was a great help to know about bringing fly nets beforehand. My only comment was taking short hikes in the middle of the day. According to our guide, it was the hottest time of day! Thanks for all the extra water provided on the bus!
It is a great day out and includes so much! They served 3 decent meals plus several snacks, the dinner BBQ was delicious! The information provided by the guides was interesting and helpful.
