"I just back to home from Ayers Rock. I had a very nice time over there :)
My tour was originally start from Alice Springs, so I join them from Ayers Rock. It seems to me rushing all that time. Because, they need to back to Alice Springs by 7:30pm. My tour detail was pick up 12pm, lunch on the bus with sandwich. Visit to Kata Tjuta Walpa Gorge (40mins). We saw only entrance, not enough to see inside. We need to be there for 1 hour. Climb Ayers Rock (1hr 45 mins), need minimum 2 hours for return, could not go to top! Visit culture centre (30mins) just have look! Back to Ayers Rock hotel at 6pm. So if someone come from Alice Springs and need to back to there it is good deal, but not from Ayers Rock. But tour guides are very friendly and very organized.
Because of the travel time required to drive to Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta the Uluru Highlights from Ayers Rock Resort (EX1275) sticks to a tight time schedule. If you would like to spend more time exploring Ayers Rock, Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and perhaps Kings Canyon we have some great 2 and 3 day tours that run all year round such as the 2 Day Red Centre Highlights (EX991) and the 3 Day Uluru (Ayers Rock) Tour (EX1155). If you have any questions about our tours just give us a call on 1800 22 55 88 and one of our friendly team members will be able to answer your questions."
