Dagstur til Ayers Rock fra Alice Springs, inkludert Uluru, Kata Tjuta og middag med grillmat i solnedgangen
Ca. midt på dagen ankommer dere Yulara, der guiden deler ut matpakker som dere kan spise på kjøreturen til verdensarvlistede Uluru-Kata Tjuta nasjonalpark. I Walpa Gorge starter dagens første spasertur, en strekning på 2,6 km. På veien får du se de fantastiske, avrundede steinformasjonene som utgjør Kata-Tjuta, et hellig sted for aboriginerne.
Etter spaserturen besøker du kultursenteret, som ble bygd med hjelp fra lokale aboriginere. Du vil lære om den aborginske folkegruppen Pitjantjatjara og områdets natur- og kulturhistorie både fra informasjonstavler og guiden.
Deretter fortsetter du til foten av Uluru (Ayers Rock), og guiden leder an på «Mala Walk», en spasertur som går nordvestover langs Uluru. I løpet av spaserturen kan du se flotte eksempler på aboriginsk bergkunst, la deg imponere av slette, loddrette fjellvegger og høre historier om det aboriginske folket.
Tilbake på bussen kjører dere rundt Uluru for å komme til en kort sti som fører til Mutitjulu-vannhullet. Du tar en kort guidet spasertur til vannhullet, som ifølge legenden huser en vannsnok fra fortiden som kalles Wanampi. Her kan du beundre det skinnende vannet og de omkringliggende røde steinformasjonene mens guiden forteller om aboriginske skikker og tradisjoner.
Deretter kommer dagens høydepunkt: dere drar til Uluru for å se solnedgangen og nyte et måltid med australsk grillmat. Se de fantastiske fargene fra solnedgangen ved Uluru mens du nipper til et glass champagne og koser deg med velsmakende lokal mat.
Etter solnedgangen går du om bord i bussen igjen for å reise tilbake til Alice Springs.

We really enjoyed this tour. The driver (in the morning and in the evening - Sorry we did not understand his name, he had long blond hair) was amazing and interesting, everyone gave him a round of applause. He first stopped to let us take pictures of Uluru and a salt lake - views were great ! Another guide took us to Kata Tjuta where we walked a bit into Walpa Gorge. After that we went to Uluru where we saw caves and a water hole and learnt a lot about Aboriginal culture. In the evening we went to the sunset lookup where we had a barbecue dinner and were able to see Uluru changing color at sunset. We were disappointed about two things though, first one being that coach seats had not been allocated upon booking. Some families having been picked up first separated in order to monopolise window seats. As a result, my mother and I could not seat together, so she missed a lot of the commentaries as she does not speak English fluently. Another thing was the limited number of minutes left at each spot. We could not walk too far into Walpa Gorge, a guided walk would have been appreciated. Same thing at Uluru caves, where after the guided walk, the guide left us the option to go see two other caves on our own. We chose to go back to the coach and almost got lost because the guide had moved it to go wait near the optional caves. In general, very good tour with stunning views of the red sand, Uluru, Kata Tjuta and a great driver. Pick-up and drop-off at the hotel were very appreciated. Type of visit : family (adults)
perfectly organised. picked up on time, two drivers tour guides were excellent in terms of service courtesy and helpful attitude. quality and spacing out of food drinks were excellent and of perfect. knowledge of guides was based on facts and science. finally BBQ was the cream. driving was like travelling with Qantas for safety. hands off to you.
It was a full day but well worth it. Plenty of good food supplied and good value for money. Our guide and driver (lath and Gav) were both knowledgeable, helpful and courteous to passengers, I did this trip by myself when younger, but it is much better to do it by day tour because you can relax, and enjoy the day without stress. The weather was perfect.
A really long, but awesome trip. Saw everything you expected, with great commentary by the two guide/drivers. Extra bonus on the return of stopping in the middle of the desert on a moonless night to see an awesome star show.
If you have limited time and what theUluru experience this is the tour for you. Tony and Gavin did a fantastic job of handling all the aspects of the tour and very very informative and interesting about the local culture. Be rested when you take the tour as it really is a full 18 hour day.
Booked through Viator and provided by Emu Run Experience. Long day but worth it for a once in a lifetime experience! The bus was large, very comfortable and had a toilet room on board!. Well run tour with plenty of bathroom stops along the way. Breakfast was about 2 hours after tour start at a small café and was very good variety. Lunch was sandwiches on board the bus and not so great chicken wrap with cucumbers and carrots but not much taste. Our guides were great at keeping us informed and building the excitement to spot Uluru. Also very good at providing history and other site related information. Fair amount of walking on this tour and a lot of it in red sand so recommend not wearing shoes you want to keep clean. Also a bit chilly in early July, especially in the evening at the BBQ. BBQ dinner appeared to be pre-cooked steaks and sausages re-heated on the grill as well as a variety of salads lettuce salad, pasta salad, potato salad, etc.. Drinks were champagne and some orange juice. All in all the crew did a fantastic job given the size of the group and the time constraints of this tour.
Longest day trip ever from 6.00am to 01.00am next morning. The Tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic and they really made it a good experience. The flies at Uluru are a real nuisance, so take a face net although even that is annoying. Overall, glad we went but very tiring.
