The tour guide was...
Madalyn_T, June 2023
The tour guide was incredible. She knew her stuff, was considerate to every individual in the group and was open to answering questions and having discussions. Accessing the tour was simple and the amount of different sections on the ground was more than equivalent of the money you pay for tickets. Definitely recommend
Fun tour of an amazing facility!
Chris_M, May 2023
The MCG is very impressive and steeped in tradition. Adrian was an excellent guide and didn't mind filling in the details my son and I didn't know about playing cricket! The grounds are massive and impeccably maintained. Highly recommend. It was a great afternoon activity.
a great tour with a informative tour guide and very friendly person. a tour throughly worth doing.
Jeremy_S, May 2023
The whole tour was fantastic the walking out on to the playing surface and the many different places to see on the tour of the MCG that you wouldn’t see if you went to if you were just attending a game!
Great insight to the ground

MCG is Great and Memorable , No more words to define MCG

To touch the cricket ground of MCC was most memorable part for me and to see the records of players in their dressing room was much more admired
The magical G!
Greg_P, Apr 2023
A great way to spend a drizzly Melbourne day wandering the halls of the magical G! Our guide Malcolm, 51 years a member, shared so many insights with his laconic humour shining through!

The guide John was wonderful and brought the tour to life with his passion and love for the MCG and Stadium
Stunning experience would recommend if you ever visit Melbourne Australia.
Gretta_C, Feb 2023
The size of the Stadium. The remarkable no's of membership and the amount of people on the waiting list. The knowledge that our guide John (What a lovely man) with Irish roots had about absolutely everything Cricket.
Robert_P, Feb 2023
Jack/John was great. A bit of a character. Walked bloody fast.
Only thing missing was something in the gift shop about the MCG. Would have been great to have a key ring or cap, something small.

Amazing MCG tour
suzie, Jan 2023
Getting to see behind the scenes of the MCG was interesting and we enjoyed seeing long room and the MCC members' seating and wining and dining areas and also getting to going into the team room/s. Our tour guide - Brian, was very knowledgeable and the group sizes were good.
