Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 65 reviews

The FoL tour was well organised and efficient including a quick trip to the site and quick overview and then walking around the installation for around half an hour followed by hot drinks to watch the sunrise. Great seeing it at sunrise to see the installation in the dark followed by sunrise and the morning view of Uluṟu - and a lot less people than the evening tours we heard. The hot drinks and biscuits are basic, but you’re there for the view! Around 2 hours door to door.

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