    It was magical visiting Uluṟu and Kata Tjuta. I would recommend packing snacks as they are not really supplied throughout the day and the only food provided was a apple and the BBQ dinner, which is very generous & delicious, but at the very end of the day.

    Visiting Kata Tjuta and Uluru were magical. The sunset barbeque dinner was memorable for all the right reasons. Our guide Lauren was great and she looked after us well. She is knowledgeable, friendly but professional, and capable.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. It was nice to sit back and let someone else do the driving. We had plenty of time to experience each of the stops. Fredricko was full of stories about the area and we learned a lot which we wouldn’t have if we traveled on our own. The bbq dinner was a highlight and well catered. Thank you Emu Run for a wonderful day out.

    It was well organised. Lauren, our guide, was the loveliest person. It was a nice, small group. We made new friends! 😊

    It is definitely a must do! I felt we had lots of time for a walk and photos at all our stops. The only negative - tour said maximum of 30 people on tour. We had 44 people, which makes geting on and off the bus time consuming.

    Lucky for us the bus driver said to check the tours are operating, and when I checked (the day before our tour) I was notified that it had been CANCELLED in November 2021 with no notification to us. We even received two messages confirming the booking was going ahead; five days prior to the scheduled event, and after the event to asking us how the experience was! Your system is broken, you should find out the breakdown in communication and fix it so other families are not disappointed when travelling all that way.

    Walking up the valley of the winds, seeing the sides of the valley with plants growing in amazing spots and being almost hit by the zebra finches as they flew past so quickly. Learning about the legends of Uluṟu was a great experience. The BBQ was efficiently organised and delicious. How great it was to see the rock so close up as it changed colour.

    Very impressed by this outfitter. Our flight was canceled and we could not make our tour pick up but they picked us up later and helped us rejoin our tour. Sunset BBQ was great. Rachel was awesome!

    Would not recommend Emu 😕

    The description is false, we were advised: 30+ seater bus, we had 21 sester minivan, air con, snacks, fruit & drinks provided. #1 air con barely working in first bus, minivan was very tired, old and dirty. Our Coach broke down so we waited at Cultural Centre for approx 2hrs, cut tour short 1 walk instead of 2, so missed out on watering holes. 2nd van had no air con, driver didn't have microphone so couldn't hear her explaining anything, nil snacks, 1 x apple provided and water, but you needed to bring your own water bottles (NOT specified). Our Guide Lauren, was professional and did a great job, but from what I could see, staff are given inferior Buses to work with, rushed with too many runs back and forward to Yulara (Lauren did 3 that I counted). Only 1 staff at Uluru Lookout trying to set up and serve drinks & bbq - which met people from Alice Springs tour, not enough seats and tables, Customers helped 3 staff pack away tables and chairs, everyone was happy to help but for the money, not a cheap tour, they needed more staff to assist.

    Lauren was a great guide around Uluru, knowledgeable and informative, Ross our next driver was excellent. The walk in at Kata Tjuta was also interesting, time was a bit short so we didn’t quite make the end. The BBQ at the end while the was setting sunset was the perfect finish to the day.

    Expensive but no other option

    , May 2022
    While I enjoyed the day and our host Lauren was fantastic, I was disappointed at the time we spent at Uluru. I would have liked to have done more of the base walk. Unfortunately members of our group also got lost so we lost time waiting for them to come back. The cultural centre while nice and quaint doesn't need the hour allocated to spend at it. After the centre we then drove back into town (30-40mins) to collect more passengers then back to Kata Tjuta, I found this to be a waste of time. Which could have been spent at Uluru. The dinner was a basic bbq which was expected. The price is expensive but as for things to do and see we expected this as well.
