Really interesting tour with knowledgeable host, Roger. The group was a little large and hence had some strict rules about staying together and moving along. They were doing some rehearsals for ANZAC Day so it was a little hard to hear at times.

I’m a tourist from Japan. So I cannot understand some words. But the guide recognized this and explain slowly. I appreciate it and really enjoy the tour.

Rushed!

The gentleman who took us around the ground was very knowledgable and it was wonderful to see the famous ground. However it was very rushed and we were not given enough time to look at the some of the wonderful photos and works of arts on display. I would rather have paid more to have at least 1/2 hour more!

Disappointing
Jasmine_K
, Feb. 2020
I took my husband to do the mcg tour for his birthday this week. It was such a dissapointment. We weren't able to go in the change rooms, the long room or the corporate boxes as there was a cricket game on in the afternoon and they were occupied. The museum was being renovated so therefore was closed. I never received any email or notification when we arrived that this was the case and all we wanted to see and experience we were not able too. If I had of known all was closed I would have changed the date we went. Pretty poor experience for something we were really excited to do.

An iconic Adventure

Took our 12 yo grandson from northern NSW, a hugely devoted cricketer and Aussie Rules player. We were both very pleased indeed, blown away by the history and general feelings of pagentry with honour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and the MCC museum, a particular highlight. This was my first re-visit in many years. Happily recommended!

Our tour guide Barrie was amazing. His knowledge and passion for the MCG was warmly received. Our boys loved seeing the rooms, nets, and going into the members area. We were all very impressed with the tapestry and the wonderful presentation of all the elite athletes.
