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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Brilliant trip if you are interested in any sport you must take this trip when in Melbourne


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

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.

Highlight of Australia leg of travels. Great if you love sport or just interested in the history of it. Lots of different sports and the museum is really cool too - especially the interactive bit. Highlight was Rod Laver stadium! Great lunch too.

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!
