    Not worth it

    Very disorganised didn't get the walk as advertised due to the bus breaking down. Guide was pressed for time due to having to pick up other groups Not worth the money

    Would not recommend Emu 😕

    The description is false, we were advised: 30+ seater bus, we had 21 sester minivan, air con, snacks, fruit & drinks provided. #1 air con barely working in first bus, minivan was very tired, old and dirty. Our Coach broke down so we waited at Cultural Centre for approx 2hrs, cut tour short 1 walk instead of 2, so missed out on watering holes. 2nd van had no air con, driver didn't have microphone so couldn't hear her explaining anything, nil snacks, 1 x apple provided and water, but you needed to bring your own water bottles (NOT specified). Our Guide Lauren, was professional and did a great job, but from what I could see, staff are given inferior Buses to work with, rushed with too many runs back and forward to Yulara (Lauren did 3 that I counted). Only 1 staff at Uluru Lookout trying to set up and serve drinks & bbq - which met people from Alice Springs tour, not enough seats and tables, Customers helped 3 staff pack away tables and chairs, everyone was happy to help but for the money, not a cheap tour, they needed more staff to assist.

    Lauren was a great guide around Uluru, knowledgeable and informative, Ross our next driver was excellent. The walk in at Kata Tjuta was also interesting, time was a bit short so we didn’t quite make the end. The BBQ at the end while the was setting sunset was the perfect finish to the day.

    Expensive but no other option

    , May 2022
    While I enjoyed the day and our host Lauren was fantastic, I was disappointed at the time we spent at Uluru. I would have liked to have done more of the base walk. Unfortunately members of our group also got lost so we lost time waiting for them to come back. The cultural centre while nice and quaint doesn't need the hour allocated to spend at it. After the centre we then drove back into town (30-40mins) to collect more passengers then back to Kata Tjuta, I found this to be a waste of time. Which could have been spent at Uluru. The dinner was a basic bbq which was expected. The price is expensive but as for things to do and see we expected this as well.

    Great introduction to Uluru and Kata Tjuta
    AudraL
    , Apr 2022
    I didn’t know this when I started the tour but it is actually 3 tours combined to one. I am very glad that I did the full experience as it was a great introduction to Uluru and Kata Tjuta right after arriving to the area. Our guide was quite new but she did a marvelous job in keeping us informed about the area and telling lots of cool stories. The only thing I would change would be a better audio system as it was sometimes a little bit hard to hear all the wonderful information our guide was sharing.

    The sites we visited were very memorable, however the time given at each stop was too short. I understand you need to keep to a schedule however you need to take into consideration the demographic of your passengers and level of mobility.

    The tour around Uluru and the walk into Kata Tjuta were both great experiences. Also enjoyed all of the other walks and lookout. To finish off the day with the Uluru sunset barbecue really topped off the day. Tour staff were great, courteous and helpful and the day was most likely made so much more enjoyable because the temperature and weather on the day was glorious.

    Britney was a great tour guide/driver/BBQ chef and she made our 7 hours whole day a special one, and we loved it! The spot she set up our sunset dining table was perfect, and she cooked up our steak, sausages and onion in no time! Everything was perfect and we took many excellent photos during our trip, a perfectly run day for us! Will definitely choose “ Emu Run “ tours again in the future. Thanks Britney & Emu Run for such a beautiful and memorable day for us. 100%
