It's fantastic iconic building, very impressive to see from outside, but inside it doesn't have any glamour or the wow factor that you have from the first sight of it.

We had a great tour guide. You could tell he loves the building and enjoys showing it off. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and history. The only problem is.....you take too many pictures

As a lone traveller I decided to take a tour rather than see an Opera that finished too late. The tour was $37AUS but well worth it, with you getting to see views that you wouldn't. The tour guide was exceptional and very helpful and friendly.

The architecture of the building is really impressive and best seen through the tour which points out the features of the building. The opera was outstanding. The opera house is really an... More

The Sydney Opera House is an incredible piece of arts that you should never miss while in the Oz. No matters which country you come from, you can easily book a guided tour with your own language-speaking guide here for less than $30aud, which let you enter the building and listen to the stories behind this man-made wonder.

Walking around the outside of the Opera House is awe inspiring in its own right. Take a guided tour (Tip:early morning tours have more availability); the guide was very knowledgeable and the inside of the Opera House is equally, if not more impressive, than the exterior. In my view, the cost of the tour represented very good value for money... More
