It's always important to make the right choices. No more so when on holiday. And perhaps more so when choosing a tour.
You may only ever get one chance to visit Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and Watarrka (Kings Canyon) in central Australia. Yet there are so many tours going to this region. It might at first appear difficult to understand what makes each one different.
Choosing the right tour to the region will make the difference between regretting the journey and bathing in the afterglow of a great experience.
Expectations play a big part in experiencing something greater or diminishing the experience. There's nothing worse than having a tiring day to turn up at a campsite to realise you'll be sleeping in a sleeping bag in a 'swag' on the ground, when you expected a raised bed with linen in a pre-erected tent.
Similarly, the Red Centre is the type of place where the longer you have to take in the atmosphere, expanse and relative isolation, the more you understand what makes the area so significant.
Many people don't realise the distances you will drive to get to Uluru from Alice Springs and the relative comforts of different vehicles, since you will experience much of the landscape from within a vehicle.
ALTHOUGH SOME OF THE ATTRACTIONS CHANGE, IT'S THE BIG THREE ATTRACTIONS OF ULURU (AYERS ROCK), KATA TJUTA (THE OLGAS) AND WATARRKA (KINGS CANYON) THAT MOST ARE COMING TO SEE.
Consider these variables then that will likely influence your choice of tour:
