Was great to go behind the scenes at this iconic oval but as a cricket lover was a bit too much football ball oriented. The heritage listed scoreboard was amazing to see the internal workings. Our tour guide Ralph was very knowledgeable and loved his stories. Would love to have seen all the cricket memorabilia that used to be in the Old Chappell Bar. Still great value for money and very enjoyable morning.

The Adelaide Oval is a perfect place to watch Test Cricket, but it is also excellent for Gather Round AFL footy. We saw three matches, our seats were good & well-priced, there were plenty of staff around to help and the food & drink options were great. By the simple device of having In & Out doors for the toilets, queueing was minimised. Our only complaint was the incessant & loud noise from the scoreboard, where every minute had to be filled with inane chatter or competitions. We would have appreciated a break from that.

A good insight into the history of the oval and a chance to get a behind the scenes look inside the oval. Lots of cricket & AFL memorabilia.

This is a great venue, went there for the gather round, unfortunately my team didn’t win but the stadium is awesome. Easy access and great facilities, looking forward to going back in 2025

Lovely modern stadium to walk around, not what I would call a soulless bowl like today's stadia, this place was oozing with tradition and history which includes a museum dedicated to Don Bradman
Our guide was very knowledgeable, was done at a casual pace
Well worth a visit

We loved this tour - I'm not even into footy or cricket but I found it so interesting seeing all of the behind the scenes workings of the stadium. My favourite parts were seeing how the score board worked, and the experience of walking out into the stadium with the recorded roar of the crowd. The guide was excellent - so knowledgeable and full of interesting stories.

Great to get a behind-the-scenes tour of the oval and learn all about the history of cricket and football at this venue. The inside of the old scoreboard was amazing. Definitely a must-see for sports fans.

A really good tour. Gives you another perspective of the Oval and the history of both cricket and South Australian Football. The inside of the old scoreboard was amazing a great historical piece of the oval.

Absolutely one of the best tours I’ve been on. It was so interesting , thanks to our guide Ian. We were taken all over the inside areas that no one gets it see. The most exciting part of the tour was actually going inside the old scoreboard. It is a must when visiting Adelaide.

This tour is quite well paced, informative and interesting. It goes for 90 minutes and there is a balance of coverage of cricket and AFL information so if you like one and not the other don't despair!

You get to see a lot of behind the scenes stuff - dressing rooms, corporate areas and get inside the heritage listed scoreboard. There are stairs to climb but if your fitness isn't great you still aren't likely to have any dramas.

You can pick up souvenirs from the concierge desk and it is a chance to check out the Bradman Collection housed at Adelaide Oval as well.
