Excellent walk thru Melbourne sports - then and now - Memorable walk through Melbourne sports history and culture, with stops along the way at the Australian Open grounds, Collingwood AFL field, and Melbourne Cricket Ground. Very knowledgeable guide in Ben, with a deep understanding across sports and stories and perspective on the greatest Aussie sportsmen in tennis and cricket. Even had a chance to play some points on the AO practice courts!

Pommies on Oz tour Feb 2024. - We had a great time with Ben at Melbourne Park, his knowledge of Australian sport history was top notch. We learnt a great deal about the sporting passion and development specifically in Melbourne by a gent born and bread in the City. Would definitely recommend.

10 star experience - This was a gift for my tennis obsessive partner, who was so overexcited and happy throughout the whole experience. Ben was more than an entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide who made it a fun morning even for the non tennis obsessed (me!) and the cricket fans in the group spent time at the MCG while we played on one of the practice courts after the main tour. Would highly recommend if you have a spare half day- my partner would give it 10 stars if he could. Cheers Ben x
