We had a brilliant day when we went on the Sports Tour, which included a trip on the Melbourne Sky Deck. This was a trip my husband was keen to do and although would not have been my first choice but what a great day. It was my husband and myself plus another 2 people on the tour and the guide had an amazing knowledge that just blew us away. We went to Flemington Park, MCG, drove round the Grand Prix track and had lunch at etihad stadium (food was gorgeous). At MCG we had a great tour guide who gave us an interesting insight into the history of the ground. I would highly recommend this tour as it was just great value for money
