There's no getting away from this being a very long day - a 6am start and for a 1:30 am finish for us. You get to see the rock, the Olgas and other bits and pieces. The walks are not onerous - my companion struggles...More

Emu are great - good people, well organised, good coaches, funny enough and you get seriously fed throughout the day. Lunch, biscuits, cake, sweets, fruit, rugged BBQ. Plenty of stops, good stories and constant toilet info! The trip is great - Uluru is special to...More

A long day, but worth every second. The team are wonderful: funny, approachable, knowledgeable, kind, and extremely professional. You'll be well fed, hydrated, and mesmerised by the sights, the vastness, the colours - everything! I recommend it to anyone and everyone!

Lachlan’s tour of the West Macs was superb. He is an entertaining and knowledgeable guide and the scenery is so majestic. It’s easy going walking with good swimming whole options

Run by Intrepid rather than Emu, this 3 day adventure was great! Our guide Dom was very knowledgeable and the walks were beautiful. Sleeping under the stars in a swag bag was an unforgettable experience.

Takes too long - don’t get back until after midnight. Rock is great but don’t need the three short walks - boring. AC on coach not very effective. The rock sunset in cloudy day is not worth the wait. The tour BBQ was very average...More
