Well organised tour with a fascinating insight into the most iconic building in the world. Informative guide who made the tour time fly past. Good photo opportunities and great value for money.

We did the Tour while staying in Manly last year and I would highly recommend anybody taking it. The architecture and the history of its construction are all taken in on the Tour. Good gift shops and reasonably priced.
