    The magneficent Uluru to Alice Springs Coach drive
    , Jul. 2022
    AATKings bus drivers were excellent. We enjoyed the driver's commentary of the road trip. Also, the stops were interesting. Overall the experience of the road trip was very positive.
    Comfortable , fun and informative
    , Jul. 2022
    Comfortable coach , good commentary all the way. The most enjoyable part was after we changed over to another coach at Curtin Spring . The driver and commentator ( Mervin ..if my memory serves me correct ) was so humourous that he had us in splits all the way .
    Comfortable ride and wonderful stories
    , Jul. 2022
    The ride is very comfortable, with well designed stops for resting. We got to visit the center of Australia sign during one of the stop, which is a bonus. Our driver, Jim, is very friendly and knowledgable. He told us a lot of local histories and stories during the ride. He also has a great sense of humor, my 10 year old boy really enjoyed to listen to his stories. Thanks for making the ride so interesting and informational.

    I came out to Australia two and a half years ago to see the country. Particularly, Sydney Opera House, the GBR and Uluru. It was great to finally see Uluru. That's all three of them done now. On to the next adventure!!!

    Not a nice experience
    , May 2022
    There was nothing memorable. The driver needs to read up on NT HISTORY/Culture which was promised when booking the trip. Not give history on NSW and his up bringing. Also a better time management.

    Hi Lucia, Thank you very much for your feedback. We'll pass it on to the relevant teams. Jess from AAT Kings

    Such poor service!!
    , Aug. 2021
    AAT Kings cancelled the shuttle the day before (despite it being booked through Viator for 3 months) and AAT Kings confirmed the booking at the Yulara desk 3 days before. So left high and dry - a terrible experience! Used Emu Run - fantastic company, as they were so helpful and provided a great service at a cheaper price.

    Dear Marc, Thanks for your review and we would like to investigate this with you further. Would you be able to contact with your name, your booking details and your intended date of travel. Thanks so much, AAT Kings Guest Relations

    Great commentary from the drivers. Despite the very late and often uncertain return trip to Alice, everything went well and I enjoyed the trip.

    Very unreliable and staff were unprofessional.
    , Jul. 2021
    It was 2 hours late and they wanted to drop me (a young female) at an unsafe location in Alice springs even though I had assured I would be dropped to a Tavern by staff before I left. Very shoddy service.

    Hi Ruth We're not sure what happened here as we don't have enough detail to investigate this. Would you mind dropping us a line at with your name (as travelled), your trip name and the date? We'd like to find out more so we can clear this up, so we look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards AAT Kings Guest Relations

    A really convenient way to get to Alice Springs, with views
    , Jul. 2019
    There was no delay, the coach pulled up at our hotel in Yulara exactly when it was supposed to. The coaches were clean and airconditioned. We had to change at the junction where the King's Canyon road meets the Lasseter highway and our second driver was just as friendly and informative as the first. You get a great view over the landscape from up in the coach and you don't have to worry about the driving! Our coach stopped for a toilet break at the Mount Conner viewpoint, then again for a refreshment break at the Erldunda roadhouse. The coach dropped us off at our hotel in Alice Springs, so this really is a door to door service.
