I expected the Opear House to be a lotmore grand than it is but it is definately still a sight to visit. Very busy but nice bars with a view of both sydney harbour bridge and the opera house, albeit quite expensive.

Thought just seeing the opera house from the outside was enough. WRONG!!! The inside one hour tour is a must and should not be missed. Seeing the inside of the opera House and hearing the history was so worth it. Great guides and info. A must do for tourists to Sydney

Nothing at all! This place is amazing; actually smaller than it looks in photos. Go take a tour of the place; it will give you a new appreciation of the the theatre/dramatic arts.

To truly appreciate the Opera house you much take the total tour. Seeing the interior added so much to the day. Very worth the time and cost.

The Opera House is amazing and an important part of Australian history. I spend ages walking around it every time I am in Sydney. I had been put off from doing the guided tour through the building though because I found the price a little unreasonable but finally decided to give it a go on my fourth trip to Sydney.... More

There is plenty going on inside and outside the Opera House. Whether you're enjoying a beverage at the Opera Bar admiring the view, taking a tour of the inside or attending a recital, concert or show. No matter how you want to see it you can see if for free through to top price tickets. I won't say that you... More
