Excellent
The canyon walk was the best. Staff and breakfast was amazing. The only criticism is that I feel that more emphasis should be made on the level of fitness required for the rim walk. Some people required help and held the group up significantly, on a hotter day this could have been hazardous for everyone else.

A BEAUTIFUL BUT STRENUOUS EXPERIENCE.
KARYN_W, Jul 2021
Kings Canyon Day Trip from Ayers Rock (Uluru)
The walk around the rim of Kings Canyon was strenuous but well worth doing for the scenery, especially to see the Garden of Eden which was at about the half way point. The breakfast at Kings Creek Station was delicious and you tell that the bacon was very fresh. Unfortunately, our AAT Kings bus was not being co-operative, especially when certain gears were needed to be used. The guides were knowledgeable and encouraged you to take the climb and walk at your own pace but I was slow and by the time that I reached the rest stops, most of the group started walking again so I did not get to rest for very long. My husband and I did this tour at the end of June when the weather was cool in Yulara but we wished that we had worn shorts/three quarter pants and a T-Shirt for the climb and walk around the rim of Kings Canyon as we got very warm and sweaty.

Kings Canyon Guided Rim Walk
A trip to central Australia is a journey of delights. Kings Canyon Guided Rim Walk brought forward the true majesty of the land, highlighting the deep oranges of the rocks the mighty natural formations along with a chance to achieve varying levels of challenges, depending on your ambition. The steep climb at the beginning is the toughest part and all over in 8 - 10 minutes. The rest of the walk is so breath taking showing off ancient rock formations, deep dark pools and prehistoric cycads. Our guide explained so much to our small group because he cared so much about the region with its history, geology and the First Nation people who have so much history behind this amazing walk.

You really shouldn’t miss this, in your once for life tour to Uluru. It’s hard for 6km climb and walk but it worth. The AAT kings is professional, the boys Jack and Dylan are good guides

Kings Canyon Day Trip from Ayers Rock (Uluru)
Easy to organise on line. Friendly efficient, helpful staff at office in Ayers Rock. Driver and guides professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Coach very comfortable. 2 walks available, can choose on the day and are given opportunity to change from the harder walk after a short trial. Beautiful walk through this amazing landscape with explanations from guides. Well worth the effort.

Kings Canyon Day Trip from Ayers Rock (Uluru)
The tour guide knew when to chat and when not to (whether to get a bit of sleep on the trek to and fro or out on the hike to just take in the awe of your surroundings). She motivated the group and was very engaging - teaching and sharing throughout the hike. Bring lots of water!!! It got up to the mid to high 40s for parts of our hike. The stops at the stations coming and going were equally enjoyable with different animals. (You May get lucky and get a camel selfie)

Kings Canyon Day Trip from Ayers Rock (Uluru)
The walk can be a bit hard-going in places, especially when it's very hot, but it's definitely worth the effort. The views are breathtaking. Be sure to take plenty of water - in the summer it's a requirement and the guides do check you have enough water on you before you're allowed to do the walk.
