    The Kata Tjuta small group tour is a great tour, the tour guide is friendly and helpful, we have a wonderful time exploring the beautiful landscape.

    We were a little disappointed with the tour as we were expecting longer time on the walk and thought we could explore a little more. The tour guide was a little too serious.

    I escorted my elderly parents on a Red Centre trip which included an enjoyable afternoon tour to the beautiful Walpa Gorge. Our driver/guide was bright and informative and, at the start of the walk, gave us an excellent summary of the area's geographical history using a stick in the sand as a visual aid. During the walk, we let the others go ahead because my dad is 86 and uses a walking stick so we moved slowly and carefully over the rocks, soaking in the scenery before turning back halfway to return to the bus on time. If we had our own car I guess we may have taken our time and completed the whole walk but the shorter distance was probably better for dad and it certainly gave us plenty of terrific views and a great feel for the place with its towering walls. The SEIT office had organised an ipod with italian commentary for my dad but I'd forgotten to tell them he wears hearing aids so he was unable to use it. It didn't matter because I was able to interpret for him anyway. On the way back we stopped at the Kata Tjuta viewing deck for some truly impressive scenery. A lovely tour.

    This tour nearly didn't happen for us as our booking hadn't been changed from 2021! However, Karyn worked her magic and got John to take the 3 of us. Thanks to both of them the tour was great, though a bit rushed as I'm a slow walker and John had to be back by a certain time. But it really is a magical place and a must see for anyone travelling to this part of the world.

    Amazing tour to Kata Tjuta Tours guides were very knowledgeable & being in a small group in a very comfortable Van made our trip even better Right on time with pick up from our Desert Gardens Resort Would definitely booked tours with Viator

    Wonderful to see from a distance and up close the beautiful formation of the huge rocks of Kata Tjuta. Particularly enjoyed the rocky Walpa walk into an oasis of green with water in the small creek from previous days rain. Must do!

    Seeing Kata Thursday from the lookout on the way to the walk, and the interaction with the guide , Wayne, and the people on the bus

    We were picked up nice & early ar out hotel & met Aussie Mick who immediately was engaging & we knew we were in for a good day. He told us very interesting stories the whole way out to Kata Tjuta. We absolutely loved the viewing platform where you could see both Uluru & Kata Tjuta and had plenty of time to soak it all in. We then made our way to Kata Tjuta where a great brekkie was prepared for us, cereal, fruit, coffee, tea & juice & lovely hot raisin toast. We were able to go for a short walk to get a great view of the domes before going to Walpa Gorge. It’s definitely a challenging walk not in it’s difficulty or steepness, but the path is rocky & uneven so you must concentrate! It’s also windy (Walpa means windy) so hold onto your hats. Mick stopped regularly to point out interesting facts about the gorge & its geology & animal & plant life. We had ample time to take picture’s (he took pictures of us as well) & go at our own pace. It was an amazing place, we loved it. On the way back Mick remembered all our questions. Highly recommend this tour & if you can go with Aussie Mick, lucky you!

    We did this tour with six other people and our great SEIT guide Michele (young Italian gent). Although it is described as an afternoon tour we did it in the morning as SEIT had been mucked around a fair bit by work being done in the National Park at Walpa Gorge, causing a lot of their regular tours to be cancelled. We jagged it for a lovely group and we all warmed to Michele due to his hospitality, knowledge and care for us all. When I say warmed, we needed it as it was 3 degrees when we arrived to see the sunrise from the Kata Tjuta viewing platform. People had sleeping bags, blankets and warm partners and friends to keep them warm. I would have paid good money for a beanie (which I did the next day in preparation for the Sounds of Silence dinner). We only had around 50 people on the platform which could probably hold about 200+ so we had unobstructed views. After a breakfast of cereal, hot chocolate, juice and toast masterfully prepared by Michele we walked up the gorge. We were fascinated the whole way by the conglomerate formation of the rocks - totally different to the smoother rock shape and appearance of Uluru. Lively Zebra Finches feasted on a small patch of water en route and entertained us with their singing and aerial dancing. Michele told us stories and shared information for the whole trip. He knows a lot about the flora and sparse fauna and met the challenge of all our questions. We had a truly good time. Also want to give a special call out to the delightful Julia who arranged things for us from her SEIT information booth. She juggled our late entry onto a tour with several cancellations and reorganisations caused by anticipated Park closures at Walpa Gorge. She kept us informed the whole time and looked after us very well.
