Great value, exactly as anticipated. Tash was a wonderful guide, great organisation skills, patient & fun. Only negative was that thé bus could have been more confortable for such long journeys.
Reviewed by: Louise, March 2014

Excellent trip, professional guide, and very affordable!

I have to say that our guide Ria, was perfect. She was able to get us to each of the destinations on our trip, earlier than each of the other tour operators, allowing everyone on the trip the advantage of a perfect spot for photos and a more personal experience.

Great company and great experience!
Reviewed by: Andrew, March 2014

Thank you for a great trip, very special experience. Saw a lot, walked a lot, overnighting in a swag great experience for a newcomer. The walks were really good, enjoyed a lot as would never have done any of that on our own - a bit strenous though for anyone with knee etc problems (maybe good idea to mention in the brochure that these are not easy walks). Special thanks to Rhea, have a good trip!

Hi. Have to use few Words i figured out. Bad guide. Did not tell us much about Uluru, Valley of Winds or Kings canyon. Let us walk around Uluru at 1400 hours in 47 degrees heat. Headeck to all in bus. No champagne or crackers at uluru - only in camp. Did not guide us at Uluru and did not walk all the way with us at valley of Winds. Made the food - and the disapeared for some reason?

Friendly tour guide, with great cooking skills :o)
Great hiking tours with amazing scenery - awesome!

Emu Run Tours fulfilled all expectations: a friendly, knowledgeable tour guide, accommodation fit for the kids (under the stars) and walking tours that attended slower hikers. All in all a great experience for the group.
Reviewed by: Ingrid, November 2013

Our guide, Tash, was just phenomenal. Knowledgeable and funny, she timed every activity perfectly, so our group was always the first to arrive in busy sites and could enjoy the Uluru sunrise or walks in Kata Tjuta or the Kings Canyon without lots of people around. Meals were perfectly organized as well, and sleeping in a swag under the stars was incredible!Definitely recommended!!

Emu Run 3 days tour in a swag.. Fantastic. The tour was really well organized and we had the most excellent guide, Ryan. It was the best value for money we spent on our whole tour Down Under. Highly recommendable. Thank you!

It was a very well run tour. Our guide was great and had the right personality for the job. The food was healthy and fresh. We felt it was very good value for money and would recommend this company to any one young at heart. We were a mature couple[pensioners] and felt at home in some younger company.
Loved sleeping in the swags.

The tour was fantastic. The guide was very fiendly and at your disposal for anything you may need. I liked it was an active tour; preparing lunch and dinner all together, pick wood for the fire at nights, etc.
Just a negative comment which I think it's important to consider. The sleep bags are not warm enough for a night under the stars. Freezing night. :-(

Awesome tour, great tour guide locky. Was cold first night in swags so need really warm clothes. Memories for a lifetime were made:-)

Reviewed by: ellen, March 2013

Really enjoyed the trip to see Uluru and Kings Canyon, and I think that the Emu tour compares very favourably to others (eg. the Rock) in terms of camping facilities, buses, etc.

However, the guide told us that we were the worst group he'd had in 6 months (there was one very annoying couple and some spoke little English) and everything had to be done his way - even how to chop up a lettuce!

The best trip I've taken yet! It was a decent-sized group (about 20) and it was very diverse. Not all backpackers or older people - there were couples young & old, backpackers, friends traveling together, etc. Food was wonderful & healthy, including champagne for Uluru sunset, snacks during hikes and an Aussie BBQ. I would highly recommend this tour - very enjoyable experience in the Outback!!

The tour is lovely, you see alot, you get alot to eat! Our tour guide was Ryan and the only negative I have to say about the tour, was on the very first leg of the trip (from Alice Springs to Uluru) there was not really an introduction, it would have been nice to get to know the other people on tour by letting everyone introduce themselves.
The rest was awesome, real value for mone
