Guide Peter was very experienced and impressive depth of knowledge about cricket and footy. Definitely an awesome chance to see the intricate behind the scenes preparation for both cricket and footy. The Museum was rich with memorabilia beautifully displayed and carefully preserved.

The MCG is the largest and most sophisticated cricket ground in the world. Highly suggest this tour if you are a sports fan. Memorabilia and history is simply unreal!

Amazing venue, was really happy with our tour guide, his knowledge and where he could take us. It’s mind blowing how large, clean and well laid out this place is. Definitely would do it again and recommend it to all ages.

Great historic ground and good atmosphere for the AFL.
Was the first home game for Collingwood in 2022 and the staff outside the ground were unhelpful.
Was told to enter for GA seating at 4 different gates by 4 different gate attendants. Quite frustrating! But once into ground it was smooth sailing

The tour of the MCG was great, well worth a visit especially if your into cricket or AFL.
The Musuem was interesting and plenty of things to do and interact with. Again if your a cricket or AFL fan there’s lots for you.
Overall worth a look and worth the price.

What this stadium represents to Melbourne is a real landmark - and whatever the event just standing at the gates on the outside is enough, but to experience the moment in the stand as a visitor to Melbourne from Queensland, is a must. My visit was for the Shane Warne Memorial and this experience was an inspiration and an honour to attend.

Going behind the scenes of this cricket ground is well worth your while, even if you’re not a sports fun. The history and artefacts are amazing.
