A must do. Small group tours are the best.
Our guide Martin was fantastic. The supplied breakfast was substantial: I had a gluten free pack, gluten free museli cereal, hot water flask to make coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milk, sugar, snake pack fruit in juice, gluten free protein bar. Cold water bottle. An easy level 12km walk with a number of stops for information. Some geology, history, stories, folklore. Truely educational, with amazing sights.

Uluru guided base walk at sunrise
Fabulous guided walk by an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide, Jessie. We really enjoyed an opportunity to hear all about the history, culture and shared stories with a small group. A great way to see and hear everything you need to at the best time of day for a long walk.

An experience not to be missed!
Sep. 2021
There is no other way to truly experience and appreciate Uluru than by doing a guided base walk. Jacob was our driver and Jessie was our guide for the day. We had a small group of 8 people and it was just perfect. We were provided with breakfast bags containing juice, cereal, banana bread, muesli bar and nuts. Jessie was a great guide, you could really feel her experience and excitement for Uluru, which in turn made us all feel like we were part of something truly special. It is not a difficult walk but definitely recommend good walking shoes and water. It was windier than expected so thankfully didn't need the flynet on our morning tour but definitely heed all the advice to dress in layers. For a good portion of the walk we weren't in the sun which made it a pleasant walk but for others on the tour who expected the heat, were a bit chilly for the walk. If you get the chance, I definitely recommend the guided base walk. It's a totally different experience when you have a guide being able to share the Tjukurpa (stories) that explain the significance of different Tjukuritja (physical evidence on Uluru). And when you get the chance, just sit and let the spirit of Uluru envelope you, it's truly magical.

Sara and The Rock Amazing
Jun. 2021 • Couples
We were blessed to do the Sunrise Guided Base Walk yesterday. We had a small group of 7 and our wonderful Tour Guide Sara attended to our every need and her knowledge of Uluru and its indigenous people was exceptional. Sara guided us through a relaxing informative walk and was able to point our different features of Uluru that we would not have been aware of without her. Thank you Sara you are an amazing young woman and this was a highlight of of our trip to Yulara. The Buckets!!

Fantastic Base walk experience
Jun. 2021
The first tour of our Uluru trip was the guided base walk and I am so glad it was. Our guide Gary was fantastic! He was so friendly, organised and knowledgeable. He really made the tour a standout.

I was really impressed with the breakfast bags that were given to us at the start of the tour as I thought this was a nice touch. We were lucky enough to have a small group, so we were able to have all of our questions answered and it felt like the tour was especially tailored for us. I really loved the stories and history that Gary shared with us.

I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone visiting Uluru. While you can always do the base walk on your own, it's much better to have someone guide you through it and share their knowledge with you.

Needed, good shoes, water and a hat. The guided walk gave us more information and knowledge behind what we saw. Our guide, Jacob was very good, enthusiastic but relaxed, he spoke passionately about his subject. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Walked the base and loved it
May 2021
This tour was a highlight of our holiday. How many people can say they have walked the entire base of Uluru. And you get a certificate to prove it :) The AAT Kings staff were great. Tachi walked us around, Garry drove us and gave us the geology talk. Andy was there too. Great team! Love the respect they all show the "sacred sites". We learnt a lot. Highly recommend.

Amazing experience
May 2021
Our guide Beth was fantastic. She told us Dreamtime stories at relevant spots around Uluru, as well as pointing our the different flora and rock formations. Despite Beth saying that she wasn't a specialist in geology she managed to adequately explain the formation of Uluru and the subsequent changes over the millennia.
Thank you Beth.

We had a fabulous morning with John and Dhillon. Their knowledge of Uluru and respect for the traditional owners and this beautiful area was fabulous. Dhillon’s humour also was very entertaining . It was not a strenuous walk around the base and very much worth doing as it was spectacular.
