Kata tjuta tour
Wow wow wow, what an amazing experience. Didn’t know what to expect but the tour was truly magical. Tables filled with appetisers and a great selection of wine, beer and soft drinks overlooking the most amazing scenery. Garry out tour guide really made the experience first class from his attention to detail to his wealth of information. You really felt welcomed and looked after. I will be recommending this tour and will be back to do the sunrise tour. The tour itself is amazing but the tour guide Garry made it truly memorable

An experience not to be missed
Wow! Wow! Wow! A highlight of our stay at Ayers Rock Resort. This was such a beautiful hike. AAT tour guides Tanya and Jacob were fabulous with their knowledge, friendly manner, resilience and thinking on their feet to make the most of a blimp in the day when our bus broke down. AAT were very prompt in responding with follow-up bus and passengers missed little of their tour and time was made up. These things happen, it's how it is responded to that makes a difference. These guys came up trumps.
But back to the sunrise and hike!!! Truly a wonderful experience

Magical experience
Mar 2020
Wow! So worth the 5am start. Comfortable air conditioned coach. An ample breakfast pack was supplied. A huge Special thanks to Andrew for being the perfect informative and accommodating guide and also Kevin for making this tour a once in a lifetime experience. The walk was a little more difficult than we imagined over some rocky terrain but we all managed quite well. The sunrise over The Rock was amazing. The colours of the landscape are stunning and make great photos. Be prepared for the millions of flies that appear as soon as the sun rises, the fly nets helped. This tour is one we will never forget, thanks AAT.

My wife and I did this tour on our second day at Ayers Rock.
Fantastic morning with the AATKings Team of Aaron, Paul and David. These guys were not only very professional but also so much fun to “hang with” that morning.
Their knowledge of the area and it’s history was extremely helpful. Never a dull moment. So much fun. They made the experience so enjoyable.
If you do this tour, I hope you can get them.
Thanks again Aaron, Paul and David!
Cheers,
Don and Linda

Better than Uluru
Feb 2020 • Solo
I did the tour in early February, meaning the temperatures are high. However, it meant a small group of four plus the three guides (one in training). This meant we could move at a quicker pace and had more time to chat with the guides and hear their stories.

The tour has a couple of options. After getting to the first lookout, you can continue on to the second lookout which is a little harder or walk to Walpa Gorge which is about the same level of difficulty as the first leg. I chose to do the more difficult one. I am pretty fit, and it was difficult at times between the upward climb and heat, but the views were amazing.

I found this tour and views to be as good and even better than Uluru. My only “complaint” would be that a slower pace would allow more time to stop and take pictures along the way. However, that also means being in the heat longer, and I was still able to get a ton of great photos.

Fantastic view of kata Tjuta so worth getting up early
Jan 2020
Early start for the day, but so well worth it, the tour guides give you a brekkie bag which was good, the view is fantastic of kata Tjuta so nice in the early morning you can see Uluru in the distance, our guides where so nice and very helpful, It was a very hot day so I didn't do the main walk ( Valley of the winds) but my daughter did, on her walk her guide had to radio my guide to come move a camel out the way, there are a lot of wid camels out in the dessert. So my guide walked me and another lady on a different walk, really enjoyed it, while resting near the rest stop , a dingo came past, after water, it was so skinny, AATKings did a great job with the tour.

A wonderful half day tour in the beautiful Kata Tjuta with great guides!
Nov 2019
This was a great half day tour, starting out with the sunrise of Uluru and Kata Tjuta and then embarking on the Valley of the Winds hike. The views were spectacular and we were given every opportunity to take photos and relax on the way. The trek is hard with lots of unstable ground and rocks, but the guide was supportive to all walkers regardless of fitness levels, so that anyone can do it. Very friendly, informative and energetic guides, Jakob and Dylan, who made sure all our needs were attended to and that we were given all the information about the culture, history, geology, background, people etc... It was a fantastic day, very well enjoyed! Thanks Jakob and Dylan.

Awesome view of Kata Tjuta
Our tour on 18/11 was an amazing experience. The tour began with amazing view of sunrise of Kata Tjuta and Uluru. The viewing platform is a bit crowded with people so you gotta get there early if you want the best position for photos.

The hike at valley of the winds was not demanding. You can choose short or long route depending on your fitness. We enjoyed the hike very much. Just that you must bring your sunscreen, sunglasses, hat with strap and plenty of water. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and passionate. We had a great time! If you want to visit Kata Tjuta, this is the tour you cannot miss.
