Outstanding Experience - I want to do more!
Apr 2021
Absolutely fantastic! Highly recommend this tour and any tour that AAT Kings run. We did 3 tours with them. The tour guides - all of them including the driver who often runs the tour also - are amazing! Light hearted, approachable, friendly, the guides are full of information on the environment, culture and history of the area. All the guides were fabulous and I wish I could remember all their names! Jacob ran this particular, tour he was just wonderful. I can not speak highly enough of how this operation is run.
I also appreciate that one of AAT Kings priorities is ensuring that we all respect and care for the environment while on tour.

Uluru Sunrise & Kata Tjuta Walpa Gorge
A fabulous trip with Dylan and Jack starting with a stunning Uluru sunrise then a drive to Walpa Gorge. Great team, Dylan guiding and Jack driving. Their friendly warm manner, entertaining stories and knowledge of the area made it a very engaging experience. Their friendly tips and thoughtful insights made it all easy. The Walpa Gorge walk has lots of uneven ground, but if you take your team very accessible. It had rained a few days earlier so the stream was trickling and it was very majestic and beautiful. Highly recommended. Thx Jack & Dylan- fab job!!

Sunrise tour of Uluru and Kata Tjuta
Mar 2020
Kayla was our tat our guide and Pete was our driver. Both were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and welcoming. They were able to convey a respectful understanding of the culture of the Anangu and their ability to live with the land. The views were awesome. My only criticism is that refreshments were offered as we got off the bus to go to the sunrise viewing rather than having them available so we could have them before or after the viewing which meant that one potentially had to choose between going to the viewing of the sunrise if one walked slowly or was managing a mobility assistive device as it was difficult to walk with a hot drink in one hand and the mobility device in the other.

Wonderful Experience! Would do again!
Dec 2019
We have done several tours with AAT Kings in Sydney, Melbourne, and Urulu. They were all very good. Our family of 4 very much enjoyed the Uluru sunrise and Kata Tjuta half day trip. The coach bus came to pick us up at the hotel and then we headed to Uluru to watch the sun rise. On our day, there really wasn't much to see by way of the sun rise against the rock but we enjoyed the educational commentary our tour guide provided. He talked about the flora and fauna, patch fires, and the history of these aboriginal lands. We then made a stop for the bathroom and some breakfast type snacks. At Kata Tjuta, we did a hike in the valley of the winds which was both perfect and beautiful. Kata Tjuta is less traveled than Urulu but none the less peaceful. Our tour guide / bus rider was outstanding and AAT Kings delivered a wonderful morning experience for our family.

Jul 2019 • Family
Combining Uluru and Kata Tjuta was excellent. The sunrise was beautiful and the AAT King's team of Dan and Marie did a fantastic job. So knowledgable, happy and personable. Highly recommended. IMHO Kata Tjuta was fantastic to see and well worth it.

Absolutely Amazing part of Australia
Jul 2019
Photos do not do Uluru and Kata Tjuta justice. The experience of seeing these two rocks up close is amazing. They both change colour as the sun hits it's surface and the historical stories are magical to listen too. Be aware that you will be walking in red dirt. Shoes and bottom of your pants will be covered. It is also quite chilly when you start the tour but warms up a little as the sun rises.

Sunrise and Kata Tjuta was a very peaceful moving event
Apr 2019 • Couples
Uluru is a majestic place to visit, unless you have been there it is difficult to explain the feeling you get from the place. All the workers there are very friendly and helpful which makes for a great place to visit. Easy to get around in the transport provided or there are car hire companies, we should have taken an extra day to visit Kings Canon
Pickup/drop offs from airport and other tours run like clock work
