‘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.’

    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.

    This trip was well run. Tamara was fantastic with her sporting knowledge. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Melbourne.

    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, but 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!
