Adult Legends Tour of Emirates Stadium for Two
John Radford was assigned to us as our 'Legend'. It may vary depending on when you book for. Initially, I would have preferred an ex-player that I knew more about to have shown us round , but in retrospect, we couldn't have had a better guy than John Radford. One of the double winners in 71, he was a legend in every sense of the word He told us stories about Bertie Mee, George Graham, Charlie George, Sammy Nelson, and the loss of George Armstrong. He was such a warm, friendly, helpful guy, always keen to pose for photos or answer your questions, no matter how trivial, and he signed photos for us towards the end. The tour itself was great, as you get to see all the trophies, busts, rooms and facilities you'd expect, sit on the manager's bench and your favourite player's dressing room bench.

Emirates Tour legend
Excellent day out with Charlie George being the host. Super bloke, funny and great with the kids and some great stories. Real must for any Gooner!

Charlie George came in early and helped collect the money and had out gift bags. He laughed and joked with us and was willing to sign pictures and memorabilia.
The tour included 'acess all areas' with Charlie giving us little anecdotes and insights of the club past and present. He clearly knew the club very well.
He also included a question and answer session with some delightful observations.
After the tour we were allowed to wander back to look at things we may have missed, or in my case to take more photos.
The tour also included entrance to the museum, more history and nostalgia!

A must for any Gooner
Had the legends tour with Charlie George, who met us a reception and straight away made us all feel welcome, always made time to answer questions and have his photo taken with you, taken to all the important areas of the stadium, including the changing rooms and Arsenes' seat for the games, all through Charlie would give you a brief history/info on each area. At the end we sat down in the media area where Charlie told us about his Arsenal days, including that goal in the '71 cup final and answered more questions, My tour also included entrance into the Arsenal Museum
