Our tour took in Flemington Racecourse, the MCG and Albert Park racetrack. All 3 attractions were good with good information being provided by Tamara. The lunch provided at the conclusion was very good and appreciated
Ok at best. Lunch was really good and the owner or driver was a nice guy. Having Rod Laver Stadium being taking off the list at the last minute due to construction was disappointing. Cricket stadium was ok at best, I am American and expected more-lol, sorry. Everything else was kind of ho hum, not bad, not that great though!
A great experience for the true sports lover. A behind the scenes look at Flemington and the Formula 1 Circuit culminating with a full guided tour of the ins and outs of the MCG. Very enjoyable with an informative, knowledgeable and humorous guide. Well worth it for an up close view of the venues so familiar on our television screens. Optional afternoon visit to the Sports Museum and Rod Laver and Margaret Court Arenas
If you are into your sport you must go on this Framlington racecourse was lovely with tour guide giving many interesting facts,MCG is one of the great stadium in the world,a must is the sports museum,Albert Park for F1 fans is a little bit of a disappointment as there are no permanent stands they build the racetrack over 11 weeks however you do get driven around the track.
