Standing on the ground. The long room with all the memorabilia. Being in the change rooms after seeing them on TV gives you a better perspective

Our Melbourne Sports Experience & MCG Tour dated 14 April 2022

Ben, guide who met (two of) us at 1:30pm, gave us a very good, very enjoyable & informative one hour talk as we strolled towards MCG at 2:30pm. The host at MCG (at 2:30pm session) gave us (more than 10 pax) a very good and informative tour of the MCG. But seems to end with with kind of rush. Furthermore, there was no drinks, snacks, sunscreen, etc as per mentioned as ‘included’ during our period of this tour.

Informative, entertaining and unique insights into Melbourne sports history

Melbourne Sports Experience + Free MCG Tour
Paul was a great tour guide around the stadia with insights and anecdotes from decades ago to present day, spanning everything from Tennis to Cricket to AFL to Water Polo in the 56 Olympics and the notorious Blood in the Water! It was the perfect complement to the MCG tour that in itself was fascinating hearing from an MCC member who was a wealth of knowledge as we explored the stadium for an inside look at changing rooms, to player viewing area as well as getting on the ground. All in all great fun with some good laughs along the way.

Really interesting tour with knowledgeable host, Roger. The group was a little large and hence had some strict rules about staying together and moving along. They were doing some rehearsals for ANZAC Day so it was a little hard to hear at times.
