Great mix of activities: Cultural Centre, walk to cave paintings and waterhole, wine and nibbles and sunset viewing, (although due to stormy weather and complete cloud cover we didn’t get to see an actual sunset). Guides were very good and very knowledgeable.

We really enjoyed the tour, John and Jakob made it extra special with their good sense of humour and overall kindness. The landscape is absolutely amazing and you just feel awed of such Beauty. So majestic!!

Our tour guide, Brandon is friendly, informative and caring. An incident happened during the tour and he handled it professionally. Cheers mate:)

AA kings arrangments are perfect. The bus toured around the rock slowly while the guide gave excellent commentary.

The activity is a must! Have an empty belly. The food is amazing.
