Great transfer and highly recommended. Seats have a relaxation position, but unfortunately this no longer works in all seats - hopefully it will be fixed soon, as will the seat belts in some seats. Otherwise great, especially our guide Charly

It was fantastic. Compared to other tours and activities offered at Uluru this time of year, the Sunrise Segway was the best value for money. The guides were great and the Segways are well maintained and easy to operate.

loved riding on the seaway around Uluru, great way to see it. great guide. Charlie was informative and was a great tour leader. great coffee at breakfast 😋

Once in a lifetime experience :) Our guide Beatrice was awesome and very knowledgeable! Everything was organised perfectly and executed correctly!

Good - the bus seems to be older already and the seats and seat belts are not working properly anymore which could be dangerous.
