We needed a tour that would get us from Alice Springs to Ayers Rock and allow us to explore the rock. This one fit the bill nicely. It’s a long, approximately 6-hour journey from Alice Springs to Ayers Rock on one long straight road through the desert with a couple of stops. One stop allows you to ride a camel, which I thoroughly recommend! The driver was quite informative, giving you information as you go. The sightseeing around the Olgas and Ayers Rock was great. The sunset and sunrise were a really memorable experience. We also enjoyed the partial hike around the base of the rock, for which the bus driver tells you about the Dreamtime Aboriginal stories related to the rock. Our only disappointment is that we thought the tour might be lead by an Aborigine, but we only saw a few the entire time we were in Ayers Rock.
