A really amazing tour from AATKing guides Grace and Brittney who provided a memorable experience. A constructive point to note would be that the afternoon tour although visiting the Culture Centre would benefit from the Gift Shop being open later.

This afternoon trip could reveal us all the important parts of Uluru. Giulia/Julia was an excellent guide with great knowledge about history, myths and nature. We really enjoyed the stories, the spots and the lovely sunset refreshments.
