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!
Long day but well worth it and very good value for money. Full breakfast, lunch plus dinner at the Rock, with red, white and bubbly. Plus snacks on the way. Both the guides, Lief? and Eddy excellent and knowledgeable. We were thrice blessed that Eddy was indigenous and was able to impart his knowledge of the culture in a way we could all understand. We were disappointed with the 'happy snappers' who could not refrain from 'photos, even when told not to. My wife and I would highly recommend Emu tours. Barry and Helen.
Early morning and very long day, but worth it. The local partner was Emu Run and they gave us a day to remember. We were lucky to have Eddie as our guide through the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. He shared many indigenous dreaming tales. Breakfast, lunch and a great BBQ dinner ( with Uluru as our view) were all part of the tour. A lot of other tour companies were in the area, and we felt a bit rushed, but would absolutely recommend Emu and would definitely book with them again.
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.
