What people are saying about Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

The drive over was very informative. When we arrived, we went through safety and Segway practise. I was surprised how easy it was ride....I have even suggested it to my 70+yo parents to do when they go. The walk after to the water hole was awesome also. It did feel a little rushed at times and was unable to see some areas as the Segways couldn't access them

Great way to go around the entire base of Ayers Rock. Journey takes around 2.5 hours and several stops to learn more about the sites.

Helpful guide in teaching how to use the segway, very knowledgeable on the talking points around the rock

Fabulous experience. Easy to ride. Don’t let being a senior put you off doing it.

The stories the guide Mahoney was very good and a safe bus driver.
