The guys that picked me up from the campground were on time, kind and polite. The transport van's were comfortable and safe. The helicopter flight was absolutely amazing. I am so glad i got to see Uluru and Kata Tjuta from an aerial view. It really does give a lot of context when you do the walks around both sites. The pilot was very knowledgeable of the area and of both culture sites. It was a very safe and enjoyable flight. We landed at the airport and got driven back to our pick up accommodations. There isn't room in the helicopter for bags, just need to take phone, wallet and camera on your helicopter flight.

Never ridden a segway before, but the tour guides were so helpful and encouraging throughout. Very informative about Uluru. Our guide was Nat and she was fantastic . No complaints at all from us. Would even do it again

excellent experience, Ma is a fantastic guide and Brandon an excellent teacher

Excellent guide and very well organised. If you go in winter, rug up!

Great experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat
