Wonderful educational tour
A very interesting & informative tour well worth the small cost of $25. High light was the old iconic score board it is amazing to see it is fully functional. Our guide knew his facts & made the journey more relevant with his knowledge of the history of the oval

Our guide was extremely informative with his knowledge of surrounding areas in Adelaide. He was calm for those who needed a little extra support and brought some humor into the tour to ease some nerves. The whole process was very professional and you knew safety was well taken care of. a most memorable moment was the lean back and Sitting by the lean back area and the view you get of the oval and surrounds. A massive thank you, this was such a great experience

Adelaide Oval Stadium Tour
This tour was excellent, it was very relaxed but so informative. The guide was so passionate about the beautiful oval so it was easy for him to talk about it. Some restrictions due to COVID-19 so we weren’t allowed in to the dressing rooms, but still got to look through the glass. The highlight for me was climbing up into the 1911 scoreboard that still operates as it did back all those years ago. This has to be the best $25.00 I’ve ever spent on a tour. Highly recommend it to everyone.

This was an awesome experience. I couldn’t recommend it more highly. I’d give it 6 stars if I could. Alistair (our guide) was informative, funny, caring and looked after us all the way through. If you only have time for one tour in Adelaide, pick this one! Many thanks

My brother & I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the oval, placces you don't normally get to visit, the view from the cricket press box and the interior of the old scoreboard were highlights. Full marks to guide Bob. Would have liked to see the football visitors rooms but wrong season I guess
