Overall rating

4.9 / 5

based on 25 reviews

our Tamara was fantastic!! full of information about the sports and area in general. The arenas we visited were good . My favourite was travelling around Albert Park especially as they were erecting the stands and put the track lay out ready for the race!! Tamara was thoughtful if everybody's needs and made sure to cover all things which were possible. no body went away unhappy. Thank you .

Excellent but no mention that the history being recounted was of European settlement only and there were already people here who had been here for thousands of years Some mention of the first people would have made the talk more accurate and honest. However Annette was an excellent guide- cheerful, helpful and and a wealth of information

Tamara was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable about sport and Melbourne. Gave us some recommendations for the rest of our stay and went above and beyond to accommodate us.

Very enjoyable tour

Even though this was booked more for my husband who’s a keen horse racing and cricket fan, I enjoyed the tour too.

Very good organization, friendly and competent guide Tamara. Good final meal.
