Great short guided tour
A great 3 hour round trip to see Kata Tjuta and walk up a part of this amazing rock. There were 2 couples and our guide, Charlie, who gave us lots of interesting and informative information about the area, history and culture. We needed to return on time to get to another tour and he was really accommodating to ensure we made it.

Kata Tjuta Domes - Walpa Gorge
Nov 2020
We did the Kata Tjuta Domes tour of Walpa Gorge with Connor from SEIT and he did a fantastic job explaining the way life was in the National Park and how the Anangu people lived during these times.

Due to the weather being in the mid 40s, we were not able to complete the trek into the Walpa Gorge for our safety. Most places in the National Park close the treks if it reaches beyond 36C which it did majority of the time we were there. However, not to worry as Connor took us to the Kata Tjuta Viewing Deck which was absolutely stunning.

I would highly recommend this tour as Kata Tjuta is often overlooked for Uluru but is just as beautiful. Definitely would recommend going in the early mornings if you are going in the summer months or going during the winter.

Don't forget your fly nets!

If you go on this tour make sure you ask for John! He was a supurd guide with an abundance of knowledge, enthusiasm and life experience. His excitement and interest was infectious. He was attentive to every member of the group and was fascinating to speak to. Thank you John for making this an amazing experience.

Wish I'd been told in advance or I would not have booked this
Mar 2020
I'm not giving this a lower rating because (a) it's my own fault for booking the afternoon tour (I booked too late to get the morning tour) and (b) I liked the tour guide. However, it was quite hot when we went, hot enough that my wife and I agreed she should not go. I was the first one picked up and told my guide this. After we picked up the others and drove out there, upon our arrival to Kata Tjuta our guide informed us that SEIT had a policy that once it hit a certain temperature they only complete half the hike.

So my first thought was "Why didn't you mention this at booking? Why didn't you tell me this when you picked me up and knew I was leaving my wife behind?" Then in addition, once we get into Kata Tjuta and would go no further, I noticed that NO OTHER GROUP was turning back. Only ours. This was quite frustrating.

So I do not recommend booking the afternoon tour when there is any chance that it might get too hot.

Exceptional experience
A wonderful afternoon seeing a truly incredible part of this amazing country. Dan the van man, driver and tour guide extraordinaire made it an unforgettable experience. His knowledge of this area and his ability to share it with such enthusiasm was wonderful to be a part of. I would highly recommend this tour & if you are lucky enough to get Dan as your guide, you are in for a real treat.

A Good Introduction to Uluru
This is a no non-strenuous tour that provides a good introduction to Uluru. The weather can be hot and the bugs numerous, but with a headnet and a hat, all is worth it. Our guides Ryan and Anke did an admirable job.

Too hot.
The weather was so hot they should have canceled the tour. Guide Erica was good and knew her stuff but it was too hot to walk even the 20 minutes that we did. I would not recommend this tour in the summer afternoon. I think they also offer it in the morning.

Hi, Thank you for joining SEIT Outback Australia on tour and thanks for taking the time to leave a review of our Afternoon Kata Tjuta Domes tour and our guide Erica. With temperatures in the high 30's to low 40's I can agree that is it hot between the domes in the afternoon, especially when there is limited shade along the trail. SEIT Outback Australia has altered the itinerary of our Domes tour and shortened the Walpa Gorge walk for the health and safety of all our clients during the summer months. As you mentioned above, we do offer a sunrise Kata Tjuta tour which provides the same experiences in the morning as the afternoon tour, without the hotter temperatures. We highly recommend this tour to everyone during the summer months. Again thanks for leaving your review, and we hope you enjoyed your stay in the Red Centre. Cheers, Monica

Shortened because of the heat, still impressive
We took the afternoon tour after flying in from Melbourne. Ellie, our tour guide, drove us out to Kata Tjuta, explains the aborigine culture along the way. Saw a camel along the way. Could only walk halfway into the wind gorge due to the heat.

The Kata Tjuta are incredible and worth seeing up close. The various types of vegetation and the impact of the fires were also explained.

Unexpected hike, but well worth the effort

The whole walk is on very large pebbles, which may be heavy going for some.
So peaceful despite other tourists.
Guide excellent
