This was the most fantastic tour and I suggest everyone do this. It was a long day but full of adventure & extremely informative. The driver, guide, food, stops were all amazing. The climb was difficult but so worth the effort- Jessica made sure we were all coping fine. Our driver Jacob was absolutely fabulous- he had unbelievable knowledge of the area, history and entertained us the whole trip! Stopping at KingsCreek Cattle station for breakfast was great as well as the stop on the way back at Curtain Springs cattle station - we bought the funniest bottle of port here as well as getting an opportunity to buy some wine at a reasonable price (not possible at Uluru).

Jacob our bus driver was exceptional, his knowledge and story telling made our trip so informative and a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend this trip to others thinking of going to Kings Canyon from Uluru. Thanks to Jacob, Moisos and Mark for an exceptional day out
