Ok at best. Lunch was really good and the owner or driver was a nice guy. Having Rod Laver Stadium being taking off the list at the last minute due to construction was disappointing. Cricket stadium was ok at best, I am American and expected more-lol, sorry. Everything else was kind of ho hum, not bad, not that great though!

A great experience for the true sports lover. A behind the scenes look at Flemington and the Formula 1 Circuit culminating with a full guided tour of the ins and outs of the MCG. Very enjoyable with an informative, knowledgeable and humorous guide. Well worth it for an up close view of the venues so familiar on our television screens. Optional afternoon visit to the Sports Museum and Rod Laver and Margaret Court Arenas

If you are into your sport you must go on this Framlington racecourse was lovely with tour guide giving many interesting facts,MCG is one of the great stadium in the world,a must is the sports museum,Albert Park for F1 fans is a little bit of a disappointment as there are no permanent stands they build the racetrack over 11 weeks however you do get driven around the track.

Superb trip for any sport lover, although you also get an excellent commentary on Melbourne itself as you travel between venues. Anthony the guide is absolutely brilliant, my wife and I really enjoyed his informative and humorous commentary. The tour guide at the MCG was very good too. The morning finishes off with lunch at the Etihad Stadium in the Docklands, you get loads and it's lovely so don't have too much breakfast! Excellent value for money this trip, just book it, you won't regret it.

Perfect name for the tour. Our sports lovers package included trips to Flemington horse race track, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Rod Laver tennis arena, and admission to the sports museum at the MCG. It's a jam-packed day of fun facts and sports! Our tour guide Anthony was informative, funny, and pleasant. We spent about an hour at each stop, which was a reasonable amount of time. My only critique is that we hit up lunch on the later side, about 1pm, which I wasn't expecting. The meal options at Etihad stadium are plentiful though. You won't leave hungry! We also appreciated that hotel pick up and drop off was available. Perfect for tourists like us!
