all my expectations, +

Eileen R USA

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2011

The perfect way to spend an evening while learning about a new sport. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly; he was able to answer all my questions and relate it to sports I was familiar with. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who'd like to watch a game for the first time.

Bryan S

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2010

Our host, Simon, was very knowledgeable about the game and very cordial toward us. I already had a decent grasp of Aussie Rules from watching on TV, so most of my questions were a little more detailed into the workings of the league. He handled them, as well as the rudimentary questions, quite capably. He is a true fan of the game and well qualified to host us.

Excellent time and great guide.

Jeanne N USA

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

What a game! This was by far the best booking we did in Melbourne. Our local host was fantastic and provided us easy to understand information. With the group size limitation, we couldn't help feeling like this was a private tour.
