Featured Guest Review:
We spent yesterday on a tour of Flemington Race Course and the National Sports Museum. The day was great and Tamara was a wonderful host. I am from Melbourne and we also drove into parts of the city I had never been to, which was great. Tamara was very knowledgeable and passionate about Melbourne and its sporting credentials. Lunch in the Docklands was very nice. Both the food and views were excellent. My wife and I would highly recommend this tour. Philip O (via TripAdvisor)
