We had a group of just 4 and our host was brilliant. Full of enthusiasm, very knowledgeable and took us to all the "off limites" places. The tour was really balanced- loved it

Our guide was really knowledgable and gave us a great sneak peak into how the MCG runs. I would have loved to spend more time looking at all the memorabilia.

The tour was very good, a bit rushed, but informative and good. Although booking via Headout, the oval didnt have my booking, but they let us in as I had the tickets. All around a good tour.
