    Great walking experience with very friendly, informative guide (though 'academic', not Aboriginal). Sturdy trainers or walking boots are definitely required to keep out sand and grit, and not just "comfortable footware".

    A must do!
    , Feb 2020
    This was a highlight of our visit to Uluru in early February. I would recommend a visit to the Cultural Centre in the National Park before doing the walk. Don’t forget to take your park pass with you and you will need a hat and flynet. Our guide Jakob was very knowledgeable and explained the key stories and geology well. He was supported by a trainee guide and a coach driver. There is an opportunity to rejoin the coach and visit the cultural centre at the halfway point for anyone who feels unable to continue the walk. There is another opportunity to rejoin the coach at about 10.5 km which is when the heat really got oppressive for us. The last 1.5 km stretch was the least interesting part so you wouldn’t miss out on too much by finishing here. Despite the temperature reaching 36 by the end we found the pace manageable. We had a 25 min break at the halfway stage and if you need the conveniences it adds at least half a km to the 12 km walk. The breakfast bag provided was good - take some of the snacks on the walk with you. There is opportunity to eat and have a hot drink in the break. However It’s difficult to eat cereal and milk with the flies buzzing around! There is cold water available on the bus to refill bottles in the break. We explored some of the nooks and crannies of the rock to understand how the features form the basis for the stories. The rock art is amazing. The path is level and easy walking, the temperature is the biggest challenge so heed their advice about carrying sufficient water and drinking regularly. The surface is gravelly at times and parents with children in pushchairs found it difficult at some points. Be aware that some parts of the rock are culturally sensitive and should not be photographed. Your guide will explain this in a way that makes sense in the context of the stories. Most of the rock can be photographed and of course it’s fine to photograph the rock from a distance at the various viewing points. We are not usually keen on guided tours preferring to make our own way around and explore at our own pace, but we were both very pleased that we chose to take this tour.

    Uluru base walk
    , Mar 2019
    Bus arrived on time and full explanation was given. Our guide TJ and driver Dan were friendly and helpful. The trip was extremely well organised and TJ was very knowledgable. Little things made it extra special like the tea coffe and buscuits along with the breakfast half way. The ice cold towels at the finish were very welcome! Altogether an unforgettable experience and well worth the money.
    Wonderfully unexpected!

    The tour was well organized and able to handle a diverse group of people. The walk was well paced and Emma had a wealth of knowledge on the culture and beliefs of the local people as well as natural aspects. The unusual and rare rainstorm only added to the experience! If we are fortunate to return in the future this will be on the agenda!

    The start of the walk is one of the amazing starts to a hike I have ever had. You get to experience sunrise over the desert. It is beyond spectacular! This is followed by brightly lit and glowing monolith sparkling in front of your eyes. If you are not paying attention, you may miss it. Every crack, caves and water pools has stories and legends behind it. There are also ancient indigenous arts, stories and rules that truly makes this hike a unique experience.

    This tour was excellent and a 'must do' whist visiting the Rock. The hotel pick up was on time, and the first stop was to the Sunrise viewing area for breakfast everyone provided with a breakfast bag to see the silhouette of the Rock. The group then moved to the rock to start the base walk. The guide was informative and the group were able to walk at their own pace. The Rock is such a site to see close up at different angles. Would really recommend this tour

    Had an amazing morning on the sunrise and base walk tour! You get up really early to avoid the heat later in the day and to get to Uluru way before sunset so you can appreciate the wonderful change of color over the rock. At the time of the actual sunset you're already at the base of Uluru so you get to see the bright red rock up close. During the walk you learn a lot about the aboriginal people - how they lived around Uluru, their culture and beliefs as well as the formation of Uluru and the nature surrounding it. There are lots of things to see that you can't really appreciate from afar so this longer base walk is well worth it! Our guide was funny, very knowledgeable, always made sure we're all comfortable and drinking enough water and took excellent photos of us! Make sure to bring enough water, sunscreen and a hat. You make a stop in the middle so you can refill your water bottle or even stop walking if you had enough. The pace of the walk is pleasant and except for the last hour of the walk there is always some shade provided by the trees. I was amazed by how beautiful and peaceful Uluru is from up close - it's an unique experience that I would highly recommend!

    This isn't so much a tour as an experience. It requires a very early start to beat the heat. Picked up from my hotel in Ayres Rock Resort at 5.00am. There were 12 in our group. Headed to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, to first have breakfast at one of the coach designated stopping areas. Still dark when we had breakfast, which was a selection of cereals, milk, fruit cups, granola bars, pastries, coffee and tea. They had to set up lights for us to see. JUst as there was a hint of light with the sun beginning to rise, we drove to the coach parking area and prepared for our 9.4Km walk. We were already walking when the sun came up. I took the time to stop periodically to look behind as the sun rose, to see the beautiful sky. The sun at different times bathed Uluru in splendid light and colors. Quite spectacular. Because it was the beginning of February, it can get very hot, so it's important to be prepared with having plenty of water, sunscreen, a hat and sensible walking shoes. The walking path is flat. Our guide was an Aborigini who gave us a great deal of information and history. We stopped at different stages so he could explain and direct our attention to several important sights around Uluru. There are some rock overhangs, almost cave like, where there are ancient drawings on the rock walls. At the half way point, 8 or our group did not want to continue all the way due to the heat. He phoned the coach driver, who arrived to pick up these visitors, take them to the Cultural Center instead of finishing the entire circuit, which does take about 3 hours with the stops. The 4 of us who finished were quite relieved at the end as the temperatures by that time were getting uncomfortably hot. At the end of our walk, we could see the rail which is set into Uluru for those who wish to climb to the top. The Aboriginis consider it disrectful to climb and really I don't know why anyone wants to do it. There are no actual steps, it is somewhat slippery and for those who may fall, the cost of rescue is entirely theirs. Altogether a wonderful experience. We were back at the resort by midday, after stopping briefly at one of the Uluru viewing areas for the opportunity to take some photos. Keep in mind this particular tour is not organized to stop and watch the sunrise before the walk, you are already doing the walk when the sun comes up.

    Up at 5am but the promise of a hot drink at the sunrise lookout made up for it. the views were stunning and never to be forgot on remember to take warm layers as by the time you've finished the tour you'll be baking hot! We were given a pack-up type breakfast in its own bag so we're able to carry it easily round easily and it had a good mix and plenty of food.a The guided walk was both enjoyable and informative and we were able to walk at our pace which was a good pace for the group - Tyson our guide kept us going with lots of stories information and encouragement. Definitely recommend this excursion as you're back to your hotel by lunchtime

    It is definitely a must see. Very friendly tour guide and interesting stories. It is along a 12 km path but no hills, very comfortable walking experience. It brought me very different feelings of Uluru. Seeing from a lookout or TV is totally different from seeing and even touching the real rock. Strongly recommended!
