Featured guest review

'Our tour with Tamara was excellent. The highlight of the tour was the Melbourne Cricket Ground and though we are American and know nothing about cricket, it was very interesting. Flemington Race Course is beautiful with its 15,000 rose bushes. The included lunch was very good (you could select from a large number of choices). Our tour ended with a tour of the Stomping Ground Brewery and a sampling of eight different craft beers.' - David C (via TripAdvisor)

    This was made for a day with sports crazy mates. Not too over the top, just a great guide, great information and topped off with beer. Certainly a great way to spend some time with friends or family.

    Had so much fun on this tour. Went to all the major sporting grounds and got to hear the history of each one. Andrew was really accommodating and knowledgeable. We did have to do a last minute change for lunch, but that was all taken in stride and easily fixed. Would highly recommend this tour for any sport fan.
