“Fantastic tour of Melbourne and it's sporting heritage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

We had a FANTASTIC time on our full-day tour. Huge thanks to Simon for being such an informative guide, not just about the sporting venues we were visiting but about so many other Melbourne landmarks and tourist spots. Would highly recommend the tour for any visitor to Melbourne, you definitely do not need to be a sporting fan to enjoy the day, but fans will absolutely love the behind-the-scenes look and information as well. Highly recommend it to everyone!

“Great Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

We had a great time on this tour. My 13 year old son enjoyed seeing all the different sporting areas. We were taken to the race horse track, Formula 1 track, lunch at Etihad, Rod Laver arena and MCG. Our tour guide, Simon, was informative and answer questions about the sports. He even offered to take photos so we all could be in them together.

“Great Insight into a Sports City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

We had a brilliant day when we went on the Sports Tour, which included a trip on the Melbourne Sky Deck.

This was a trip my husband was keen to do and although would not have been my first choice but what a great day.

It was my husband and myself plus another 2 people on the tour and the guide had an amazing knowledge that just blew us away.

We went to Flemington Park, MCG, drove round the Grand Prix track and had lunch at etihad stadium (food was gorgeous).

At MCG we had a great tour guide who gave us an interesting insight into the history of the ground.

I would highly recommend this tour as it was just great value for money.

Hi I would like to review the Melbourne sports tour.
I have done this tour twice now once with friends and once with my brother and what can I say:
I am a huge Premier League football ( soccer to you guys ) fan and I visit St James Park Newcastle on a weekly basis which is a football stadium that

Holds 52,000 people every game so I shouldn’t be amazed by a sports tour by trust me I was.
We were picked up from our hotel by Simon who is a brilliant tour guide ( apart from being a Leeds fan ha ha ) he was very knowledgeable knew all there was

To know about the area about the stadiums etc..
We visited Flemington Race Course followed by the MCG which is a must for any sports fan then we went for lunch at the Ethiad Stadium this was where Simon

Used his skills of persuasion to sell us tickets to go and see Charlton play an AFL game which is another brilliant tour operated by Melbourne sports tours.

We finished our tour off with the Carlton Brewery which has to be the perfect day out for Boys Stadiums and Beer what a way to your heart.

The whole tour is ran so perfectly and well rehearsed it’s a fantastic well ran day out, a must for any sports fan
