Ben took us on an amazing tour of the sporting venues of Melbourne . He is very passionate and knowledgeable about sports in his beloved city. He took us on a journey that covered the ancient sports played by the First Nations people all the way to our modern day. He was very friendly and answered the many questions asked of him. The Melbourne Cricket Ground was the pinnacle of the tour. A truly amazing sporting venue steeped in rich history. Even if you are not that interested in sports I would highly recommend Ben and this tour as he made it so enjoyable.

Thanks Ilonka. It was a pleasure having your family on tour. I loved the questions and engagement of your kids. It definitely makes my day when I get asked a lot of questions.

Visited Melbourne - The Sports Capital of Australia! with my Son. Since I have no knowledge about the city, I engaged with "Sporting Capital Tours" team. They gave us a fantastic tour around the city and all the sporting venues; explaining how it evolved and the History. It was a fantastic learning experience to my Son and to me. Expecting some overseas visitors soon and hoping to engage them to give us a tour. Very supportive and helpful Team.

There's no better way to experience your first AFL game than with a local sports pro! Aussie rules football is a sport unlike any other, and experiencing it first-hand with Ben was a joy. Fantastic seats, incredible environment, and great knowledge all throughout the game! The MCG is easily the coolest sporting stadium I've been in, and AFL fans fill the place with so much energy and excitement. Definitely a must-do while in Melbourne!

Ben was an excellent tour guide, and this was an all-around fantastic tour! He was prompt with timing, answered all questions, and even showed us the best spots to snap pictures. He described himself as a "sports nerd" and I would agree in the best and most endearing way possible!! It was evident that he was incredibly experienced and knowledgeable and was able to give us so many fun facts while on the tour. Was definitely interesting for the sports lover, but even just for people wanting to learn more about Melbourne. Well worth the money as you also receive entry to MCG, the Sports Museum, or AOT! Highly recommend!

Ben was such a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a lot of wet weather on the day and Ben was amazing at coming up with a plan B to get us out of the rain yet still make it enjoyable. This tour is great for tennis and sports enthusiasts. You will definitely learn something new. Getting to play at the courts was a highlight as well. 100% recommend this tour 😊 Thank you so much!
