The attraction in city is "free", if you sum up all activities.

Tamara was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable about sport and Melbourne. Gave us some recommendations for the rest of our stay and went above and beyond to accommodate us.

MCG - amazing venue, informative guide

to go to a sanctuary for retired classic winning racehorses was superb. amazing animals and mostly friendly (if you have the cut up carrots in your hand)

Very enjoyable tour

Even though this was booked more for my husband who’s a keen horse racing and cricket fan, I enjoyed the tour too.
