Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Memorable walk through Melbourne sports history and culture through the grounds of the Australian Open, Melbourne Cricket Ground and Collingwood AFL practice field. Thoroughly enjoyed our time with our very knowledgeable and experienced guide Ben, who left no question unanswered and we all left with a deeper appreciation for the evolution of sport in Australia, the incredible achievements of Aussie sports figures, and the intersection of sports with local politics/culture. We even had the chance to hit some balls on the AO practice courts!! Highly recommend.

The tour was fantastic. Ben our tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, easygoing & happy to answer any questions from our group. Whilst we primarily took the tour for the tennis component, we loved learning about the other sporting venues. Being American we learnt quite a bit about cricket and found it interesting and informative. This tour is highly recommended, it clearly shows that Melbourne is the sporting and cultural capital of Australia because the venues not only highlight the popularity of sport in this amazing city but the diversity that comes with it.

The trip was stunning. Ben patiently explained to us how football is played. We went onto the tenniscourts. Then he handed us over to a guide from MCG who took us 'behind the scenes'. So informative.
