Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 575 reviews

From pick up to drop off these guys were fantastically friendly, great craic and any questions answered (no matter how silly). The experience offers some amazing views that give both sites a completely different perspective than just walking around. If you’ve never been in a helicopter before, don’t worry, it’s probably the smoothest helicopter ride I’ve ever had, highly recommended

Without a doubt, the most fun I’ve had at 7 in the morning for a long time. The Segways are great fun, Chris’s knowledge and craic was amazing, even though he put me to the back of the procession. All questions were answered with a smile. If you go to Uluru, it is the law that you do this excursion, you will not be disappointed

Very professional experience. Guides were informative and helpful. Coaches were comfortable and air conditioned. Need to check the day before what time the tour leaves, as times vary throughout the year. Emails I received with pickup time was different to the actual pickup time.

What a fantastic way to see Uluru! You get history, sights, fun all rolled into one. Actually a really relaxing way to do this!

Lovely tour. Guide informative. Field of light spectacular and Uluru sunrise superb
