Sydney Opera House is such an iconic building and for very good reason. The architecture is breathtaking both in the day and at night. Would definitely recommend the Opera House tour, it was really interesting and very informative. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and you could tell that she loved the building and it's history - it really was... More

Sydney Opera House is one amazing, impressive building. You can take pictures of it up close, in mid or far distance, from different angles and at different times of the day, it is always stunning and beautiful. We went to see 'The Marriage of Figaro' one evening. Very enjoyable, cream of the crop for a great experience.

Walked all around and up to the top of the Opera House, the views were spectacular and the crowds were interesting to watch.

I went this to the performance of Turandot Puccini, I first collected my ticket purchased on line and was so surprise how nice the counter staff were, I order a Chandon pre performance and again the Bar staff were very professional the evening was a total success. The performance was simply stunning

Great venue to watch a show, although the show wasn't enjoyable. Great viewing from seats near the back too.

This is an iconic Australian landmark spot that is worth visiting in person to really appreciate it. its impressive in pictures but even more impressive in person. The sight of the buildings sails (roof) and landscape scenery around is unbeatable and this is one of the most recognisable sights in Australia if not the world! This is a must do... More

Took the standard Opera House tour and it was absolutely wonderful. Informative, interesting and fun, we even managed to see the Sydney Philharmonic practice! Highly, highly recommended.

I've been to the Opera House several times over the past few years and it is always a treat. The main auditorium is really quite special and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. I even sat behind the stage once and found the view down onto the orchestra quite interesting. There are several other smaller... More
