12 out of 10 its was amazing great food excellent staff lots of fun good company I was on my own and was made to feel welcome. The only issue I had was that am from Perth and flew in the night before the event and did not know that I couldn't but a ticket at the gate at Flemington. I might just go again one never knows
This was a very good tour the only problem we had was we didn't actually get to see Rod Laver Arena. Flemmington was really good and now i want to go a see a race especially The Melbourne Cup. The best part was the brewey tour. I would definitely recommend this tour well worth the effort.
Highly recommend this tour to all sports lovers. Flemington, MCG tour and the National Museum were excellent. Lunch at Etihad stadium was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and our tour guide did a brilliant job.

6 of us from Timaru NZ booked some months ago to go on this trip. Having been to 4 cups, we were looking for something different. This proved to be a great value for the money - great food, all beverages, tv to watch the race, excellent service. A great day out helped by a very friendly crew. This is a must on your social calendar. Thanks to you all for a great day.
This was a terrific day. The food was wonderful, and the crew was wonderful. Be aware that tickets to races are not included.
Whilst we couldn't actually see the track or horses from the river,we had a fantastic day. The crew on board were very friendly and fun people and the food was outstanding- fresh and abundant. The open bar from your first champagne at 9am right through to last drinks at 6pm was incredible value and the set up of tables and chairs with white cloths and big umberellas on the deck meant you didn't need to leave the boat and deck. Our only complaint was that we couldnt place a bet without going into the racecourse- which was another $70 a ticket. They should have a bookmaker or TAB access by the boats. Other wise a fantastic experience.
Sports part of the trip was excellent, especially the MCG and Flemington. Guide was very knowledgeable, Melbourne is the paradise for a sport supporter, anything sport related is highly thought of here. On the down side, make sure the brewery is actually running before you book this add on, as it was not when we went ( on Fridays) which made it a bit pointless. In general though a very good tour, probably better to do the Sports Hall of Fame in the afternoon after lunch though.
Had a cracking time. Plenty of liquids available, food very good, great spot when docked at the races easy access and the crew made sure everyone had a good time. Nearly missed the ride back though, as we were not advised of the leave time and made it back just as the launch was leaving. Suggest telling everyone what time it leaves. Other than that, top time.
A fantastic day out, a great way to arrive at the races, with a free bar and finger food supplied. However the price did not include entry to the race course itself.
