Great experience to see the MCG with no fans around. So many historic "tid bits" that I found out. Went into the change rooms used by the Collingwood Football Club. Went through the MCC members area - Long Room, Committee Room and various other sections only MCC members or committee members can access. After the tour, the Australian Sports Museum was amazing. So much history and artifacts. Well worth the money!!!!!

Well organised trip, good communication. Great day out. We took some fantastic photos. Bus was comfortable and our guide was friendly and knowledgable and made great effort to find us lots of animals and birds in their natural environment and to see great views along the way.

We are well travelled & have taken several wine tours around various parts of Australia. This was one of the best & Peter our guide was great.

Fascinating insight to behind the scenes of the MCG and the Cricket Club facilities. Sports museum full of interesting displays and items

It was an interesting and well designed historical walk through central Melbourne!
