Great tour - We loved this tour. Being huge cricket fans we were keen to see this amazing stadium. We had the privilege of being shown round by MCC member Bryan Dunlop who was more than happy to share his knowledge with enthusiasm. We included the sports museum tour. We purchased tickets to watch an AFL match the next evening. COLLINGWOOD v SYDNEY SWANS. Such an exciting sport. We had an amazing time. Well worth watching. The huge crowd consisted of supporters from both teams who mixed without any issues. Hopefully our next visit will be to watch an ashes cricket match. The ground is easily accessible via Danihers way and a beautiful walk along the Yarra river.

Not to be missed - A really excellent experience which my wife (not a cricket fan and neither of know Aussie Rules) enjoyed as much as I did. A lovely friendly welcome, we were early but they put us on an earlier slot with our guide Carol….who was excellent. Friendly, efficient, full of knowledge and inclusive The tour takes you everywhere behind the scenes, though not on the grass which was being re-laid anyway after the Taylor Swift concerts Highly recommended although we booked via Trip Advisor with loads of options since the MCG website offered no availability for weeks!

Cricketing heaven! - Visited with my wife. My eldest son gave me two tour tickets for my birthday, when he heard we planned to visit the ground whilst in Melbourne. Being a great cricket fan it was a tremendous gift, and I have to say this is one of the best stadium tours I have ever been on. The staff were great, and the guide was very experienced, and provided some huge insights into the history of the ground. A memory I will keep for ever!

Insightful tour of MCG - David, our guide was very nice and he explained everything in detail. He had good understanding of all the parts of the stadium and was able to share insights and answer questions if any. Overall a good tour for us of the MCG. Being a cricket lover, I enjoyed every bit of it.

A Must-See for Cricket Fans - I have always wanted to visit this legendary cricket ground, one of the biggest cricket stadiums in the world and home to innumerable cricket legends. As it was a pleasant day, I walked to the stadium from my hotel in the central business district, which took me less than 30 minutes. It was thrilling to see the grounds outside sprinkled with the statues of legendary cricketers like Dennis Lillee and Shane Warne. I went on the stadium tour, which was about 90 minutes long and quite complete. It included the visiting and home team lounges, the Blazer Bar (with pinups of every cricket team’s blazers), journalist booths, board seats and lounge, indoor nets, a review of what goes into making a pitch, a special statue of Sir Don Bradman, and famous photographs including one of Sachin Tendulkar meeting Bradman. There were also high jump and long jump distance markings from the winning jumps in the 1956 Olympics, which took place there. Well worth it, if you are a cricket fan.
