The tour itself is great. The tour operator (one of the few in the area) was great. It seems Viator changed their description between booking time and tour time. It was also my mistake that I did not check the tour operator's website for more information after I received my confirmation.
I went on this tour with the expectation that I would board a bus day 1 and be on that same bus through day 3.
This tour is really a series of tours. You must call and confirm before your arrival. Have a pen and paper ready to write down the details. Not everyone in your group is on this tour. You will also need 3 liters of water per person for the Kings Canyon tour; a Camelbak is recommended. Also wear appropriate clothing and footwear for walking.
The scenery is very nice and I would go on it again. I highly recommend.

Our Flight was late in arriving so we missed part of our first tour to the Olga's but the sunset and sunrise experience at Uluru were absolutely phenomenal. King's Canyon was amazing although I didn't know if I could climb the 500 steps but once at the top I was so glad I had. The guides, drivers etc were all amazing and so knowledgeable and made it very interesting. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

I did not realise that Viator were an Agent until afterwards, the trip was the same price as booking direct and I will be using again for other trips.

This was my first time into the central Australian desert, and I could not have hoped for a better introduction. Since I have a slight disability, I was worried whether I would be able to do the walking but in fact it was the walking I enjoyed most, and the distances, grades and times allowed were just right. Also, for someone who likes a drink (but not too much), the sunset drinks at Uluru were just what I needed. Apart from the walking, the detour to King's Canyon in your huge bus expertly driven by Jenny, together with Jenny's expert guided tour up the canyon, were again perfect. I felt a new man afterwards!

Very good organized tour, timing well respected. Comfortable busses. Interresting journey. But as french speaking people we did not understand all the explanations that were given by our guides. Would it be possible that AAT Kings provide a summary of the different points of interest - in french for example ? May be also in other languages .? .. Or videos with subtitels or headphones ? Best regards.

Brilliant drivers and guides and amazing hotels, Maria the driver was the best! Could do with a bit of a longer base waslk around uluru though. Commentary was great and we learnt loads and saw wildlife.

The tour was everything we wanted and gave us the opportunity to see Uluru at sunset and sunrise, The Kings canyon (The rim edge walk is a must!) and get to Alice Springs in time for a sunset on Anzac Hill and the Royal Flying Doctor Museum the following day (not included in tour price). The tours guides are great and provided just enough info upfront with opportunity to ask for more later. The only comment I would make is that the tour ended in Alice on the evening of the 3rd day but bizarrely did not include a hotel that night. No problem for us but perhaps puts people off this otherwise excellent tour
