Great experience overall. The guides were lovely and very informative. All the locations we went to and the river bed walk was amazing. The only thing I will say is there was an overwhelming amount of fear put into us if we were to choose the rim walk due to the steep incline and decline to access this walk. As we are aware companies do need protect themselves and make sure that the customers are also protected but I think a little less fear mongering would of been better as we did speak to those who did the rim walk and they all agreed it was no where near as bad as what it was made out to be. Aside from that guys you did an amazing job and the tour was great!

Jessie was such happy and full of energy tour guide that made such a positive and wonderful experience for us. Such a detailed and wonderful story teller, kept us well informed throughout the tour, made us laugh. Overall a very enjoyable and memorable trip! Thank you guys you were amazing!!

A must do! We did the Uluṟu Kata Tuja helicopter ride for my boyfriend as a surprise for his 30th and we both LOVED every minute of it. A must do when you’re here. The pilot Dan and the other kiwi operator Sam made the experience all that more enjoyable. 10/10 guys, and thanks again.

Everything went very smoothly. All activities were very much enjoyed by myself in my seventies and 9 year old grandson.

We found it a very enjoyable experience. Chrissy was an excellent guide.
