        Would rather cut my eyes out
        Was literally the most boring, stagnant and brutish sport I've ever witnessed. I cannot believe that people in this country pay to watch it. The atmosphere in the stadium was awful, with the only group chant was the name of the team followed by 3 claps. Lasted about 2 minutes before people stopped and resumed sitting in silence. I saw a group of people push a pregnant woman over and someone yelling at an Indian security guard and telling him to go back to his own country. At one point I stood up to go to the toilet and got screamed at by the person behind me. It was a truly awful experience all over. Linked up with some soccer fans later on at a pub who took me to a melbourne victory game in Richmond. Was a much better atmosphere, more friendly welcoming people and a nail-biting match that had everyone standing up all game. Everyone was joining in singing and making funny songs. In America we don't do that at our football matches but I wish we did... but the australian game is terrible. Avoid it at all costs.

        Sports heaven
        As I work in the racing industry, my work colleagues were very jealous that I got a tour of Flemington racecourse. Driving round the Formula 1 GP track and visiting the MCG made my day. The only drawback was that the main courts at the Rod Laver arena were closed off due to the fact that the Australian Open had just finished the previous weekend.

        Very Good for the locals
        As a Melburnian, the tour was very enjoyable to find out what Melbourne has to offer, as well as other sporting facilities along the route. Tamara was very pleasant,easy to talk with, and informative. The tour is a 'must do' for any sport enthusiast especially the MCG. I also played tennis in a show court to experience the moment. Had a very good day and also enjoyed the lunch! Chris M

        Sports Dream
        My husband and I took this trip as we both enjoy one or two of the sports covered, we really enjoyed the whole day! We were a part of a group of 7 so a small bunch of like minded people although from different parts of the globe. Our tour guide Tamara was just fantastic she was very knowledgeable about all the venues we visited and the sports that took part there also about the local areas. We joined others for guided tours at the MCG and Rod Laver arena both were informative of the history of the venues etc . My personal favourite was the drive around Albert Park, being a F1 fan it made my trip special, especially as they were in process of setting up for the race! Loved it highly recommended it. Thank you Tamara.

        Great tour even for an American
        I’m a total sports nut. I knew I wanted to do this tour in Melbourne. Despite knowing nothing about Australian rules football and cricket (I do love F1 though), I had super high hopes for this tour and it delivered. Anthony was an outstanding guide and answered all of my dumb questions. The tour of the MCG and the museum was fantastic. Melbourne is definitely a passionate sports city!

        Beware! Short Notice for Tour Cancellation
        Apparently the AFL finals were going on the week I had booked. Normally, I'm ok with tour cancellation within reasonable notice... the issue was that I didn't receive this notice until less than 48 hours of when this tour was supposed to happen. I find it highly suspect that they didn't know the AFL games were going on until that a couple days before the event. Not being local it's unlikely a tourist to know such an event would be going on.

        My wife and I booked this trip as we are both mad on sport. The trip was really informative and we enjoyed every aspect of the trip. We were the only people booked onto the trip, despite this they still ran the trip which we were delighted about. The tour guide was very easy going and knew all aspects of the trip. He was very accommodating and went out of his way to help us. It was extremely well organised and can’t complain at all about it. If you like sport, do this excursion!

        Outstanding Tour
        Myself and 8 mates visited Melbourne recently for a footy match and incorporated a Melbourne Sports Tour into our schedule. We had a great time...the guide Anthony was full of knowledge about the city and stadiums and combined it nicely with humour to entertain us. We saw everything we wanted to plus more, had a great lunch included and all went away happy. This is great value for money, well organised and every contact with the company was friendly. I highly recommend this company and will use them again without hesitation.

        My wife and I did this tour yesterday and thought it was fantastic. The scones for morning tea at Woodlands Homestead were fabulous. It was wonderful to see the "Living Legends" looking so content in their retirement. Our host Tamara did a fantastic job and made the day for us.

        Its pretty good.
        I'm not a big sports fan but I really enjoyed it. Flemington was definitely my favourite part. Our tour guide, Tamara, was great and showed us the course from the horses perspective which was really cool. The lunch was good you won't be hungry afterwards, they definitely fill your plate.

      Our guide Tamara was a wealth of information about all the sports venues we went to and provided information that was of great value. We were a small group and we had a fantastic time when we visited F1 Circuit, Flemington Racecourse & MCG were I was able to go into the change rooms of the Mighty Tigers.

      Lunch was provided at a nice cafe in Richmond and the tour finished at a Craft brewery in Sth Melbourne.

      All in all a great day had by all, thank you Tamara and your team.

      Tamara was brilliant, couldn’t fault her.

      We drove around the City in a Luxurious Minivan which was so comfortable compared to the standard ones that are more commonly used.
      Between each destination we had a lovely in-depth conversation besides sports and beer which she was very knowledgeable in, she’s also knowledgeable in some history of the City itself.

      It was awesome to see all the Sport Stadiums and Arenas.
      Hubby really enjoyed tasting all the different beers as beer is his favourite alcohol drink.

      Happy days!!!

      Tamara was our guide and she was fabulous wiith her knowledge in showing us everything on this tour up close and personal in our small group including Flemington Racecourse, inside the MCG, driving past some former footy grounds and of course a brewery tour. Highly recommended for anyone to do

      Had so much fun on this tour. Went to all the major sporting grounds and got to hear the history of each one. Andrew was really accommodating and knowledgeable. We did have to do a last minute change for lunch, but that was all taken in stride and easily fixed. Would highly recommend this tour for any sport fan

      This was made for a day with sports crazy mates. Not too over the top, just great guide, great information and topped it all off with beer with the tour. Certainly great way to spend some time with family.
