What people are saying about Rod Laver Arena

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 32 reviews

It covers most fun activities in Melbourne. Mixture of nature and city. It is among the cheapest package. The total value is worth it. Except AATKing denied us from getting on board, they insisted on the physical card, instead of QRCode. As much as possible, try to cover all zoos, there are unique each. The attraction in city is "free", if you sum up all activities.

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.

Very good organization, friendly and competent guide Tamara. Good final meal.
