My husband and I took this trip as we both enjoy one or two of the sports covered, we really enjoyed the whole day! We were a part of a group of 7 so a small bunch of like minded people although from different parts of the globe. Our tour guide Tamara was just fantastic she was very knowledgeable about all the venues we visited and the sports that took part there also about the local areas. We joined others for guided tours at the MCG and Rod Laver arena both were informative of the history of the venues etc . My personal favourite was the drive around Albert Park, being a F1 fan it made my trip special, especially as they were in process of setting up for the race!
Loved it highly recommended it. Thank you Tamara.

As a Melburnian, the tour was very enjoyable to find out what Melbourne has to offer, as well as other sporting facilities along the route. Tamara was very pleasant,easy to talk with, and informative. The tour is a 'must do' for any sport enthusiast especially the MCG. I also played tennis in a show court to experience the moment. Had a very good day and also enjoyed the lunch!

As I work in the racing industry, my work colleagues were very jealous that I got a tour of Flemington racecourse. Driving round the Formula 1 GP track and visiting the MCG made my day. The only drawback was that the main courts at the Rod Laver arena were closed off due to the fact that the Australian Open had just finished the previous weekend.

Thanks so much for such a thoughtful review! We're vey happy to hear how much you enjoyed your day. Flemington is such an interesting and beautiful place to visit, and completely different to seeing it full of people. We're sorry you weren't able to see the main courts at Rod Laver, it is unfortunately a downside of visiting a live venue. Fortunately it's very rare to have it closed.

Thanks to Tamara we had a fabulous day touring not only the plentiful sports sites across Melbourne but also seeing the city. Tamara was incredibly well informed and had knowledge far beyond expectations about not only the locations but also the marquee champions from years gone by. She is a top notch expert with a gracious demeanor. As American sport fanatics with limited understand of Aussie Rules, cricket, formula one and even horse racing, we were surprisingly engaged from the oldest of us (mid-forties) to our seven year old. Also, of note, our lunch was delicious which is not often the case when lunch is included in a tour.

I’m a total sports nut. I knew I wanted to do this tour in Melbourne. Despite knowing nothing about Australian rules football and cricket (I do love F1 though), I had super high hopes for this tour and it delivered. Anthony was an outstanding guide and answered all of my dumb questions. The tour of the MCG and the museum was fantastic. Melbourne is definitely a passionate sports city!

Apparently the AFL finals were going on the week I had booked. Normally, I'm ok with tour cancellation within reasonable notice... the issue was that I didn't receive this notice until less than 48 hours of when this tour was supposed to happen. I find it highly suspect that they didn't know the AFL games were going on until that a couple days before the event. Not being local it's unlikely a tourist to know such an event would be going on.

My wife and I booked this trip as we are both mad on sport. The trip was really informative and we enjoyed every aspect of the trip. We were the only people booked onto the trip, despite this they still ran the trip which we were delighted about. The tour guide was very easy going and knew all aspects of the trip. He was very accommodating and went out of his way to help us. It was extremely well organised and can’t complain at all about it. If you like sport, do this excursion!

I'm not a big sports fan but I really enjoyed it. Flemington was definitely my favourite part. Our tour guide, Tamara, was great and showed us the course from the horses perspective which was really cool. The lunch was good you won't be hungry afterwards, they definitely fill your plate.

Went in sport lovers tour thought was a bit expensive paid $130 for visit to Flemington racecourse which would gave cost operator nothing as just walked on lawns and left
Then went to McG tour which was good which operator would gave paid about $30
After mcg went for drive on Grand Prix track at Albert park would have cost operator nothing.
Then went to lunch at docklands lunch was very good cafe extremely good meal if your choice,then was dropped in f at pick up point.
Thought could have been more content put into tour only 3 visits 2 which cost nothing
The tour guide Tamara was very informative and new the history of sport in Melbourne.
Just thought could have been more content in tour

Hi William P, Thanks for taking the time to review the Morning Sports Lovers Tour. We are sorry you feel you didn't receive value for money, as this is not usually the case with our guests. We are the only sightseeing operator in Melbourne who offer scheduled tours to Flemington Racecourse, and the experience there is so much more than "walking on the lawns", as we explore the history of the Racecourse, some of the famous participants, and it's transformation for the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Similarly, as we driver through the Melbourne & Olympic Park Precinct, the Grand Prix Circuit, and through inner Melbourne suburbs, we aim to provide a large amount of historical and contemporary information. As we operate small group tours (less than 10 guests per tour), we are also able to talk more specifically to particular items of interest, should we be asked. We do agree that our Tour Guide(s) and Lunch Venue are excellent. Although we choose to not discuss our venue partnership arrangements, we do know our pricing is more than competitive with other Day Tours in Melbourne, many of which offer far less by way of inclusions, and far less by way of personalised service.
