We had an AMAZING time on the day-long sports tour with Anthony

We had an AMAZING time on the day-long sports tour with Anthony. It was a wonderful way to get acquainted with the city of Melbourne, and to see it through the lens of being "the greatest sports city in the world." Anthony is so knowledgeable about each aspect of the sporting complexes we visited, and has a great program laid out for you. From a behind-the-scenes tour at Rod Laver Arena to being right beside the finish line at Flemington Race Course, our only regret is that we aren't in town long enough to see a sporting event! This tour is a must for sports lovers!

Tour was great, very informative. Shame we couldn't go onto the field, but cant always be helped. Sports Museum had so much to look at and liked the interactive stuff. Had a great time. Was a small group, tour guide was great, had heaps of knowledge and was very easy going. Shout out to Anthony!
