Was there just before the cremation of Hughes and the whole entrance was lined with flowers and Bats with caps. The cricket stadium is a must visit for cricket enthusiasts as it has a beautiful outlay. The museum is also very nice and the facilities looked nice to. A very well designed stadium

The tour guide was very informative and certainly knew the answer to the many questions the group I was with posed him. The tour takes you behind the scenes into the dressing rooms and the media centre, you also get the chance to step on the actual pitch itself, incredible stadium and excellent tour for all cricket fans

I visited the SCG on 25 October and the tour was taken by Nick. I wasn't interested in the football stadium so that part of the tour was wasted on me. With regard to the SCG most of our time was spent outside or in the new Bradman Stand. It was good to be in the commentators box and see... More

The tour was good, but i guess the guides needs to be good and should have knowledge about Cricket, our guide was not able to explain us some details on cricket. Also any anecdote on the history etc, will make the tour more interesting

When ever you visit Sydney. The Allianz and SCG Tour us a must. Get behind the scenes, learn about your Footy Team, relive cricket history. Look at the training ground. Run by the SCG Trust its a must. SCG is the only ground out side of Lords to host 100 test matches.

Really ordinary place to view sport. Bay 11 from row AA. Seating far too flat so seems you are a mile away from field of play even though not far from fence. Not like other arenas where gradient goes up quicker. Paid $50 and terribly priced. Sydney sporting community also so ignorant of those their to watch the game. Continually... More
