“Iconic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Sydney Opera House is a must see icon in Sydney- you can get right up close without a ticket. However its probably best viewed from a ferry- get one to Watsons Bay or Manly & take lots of photos on the way and then enjoy a day at the beach.

I am not a huge tour person but this was an exceptional tour. The Opera House is very interesting and well worth the visit. With the tour you also get a bargain on lunch which is tasty!

“Do the tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Tour was a little pricey, but well worth it. Guide was very knowledgeable and adjusted the tour to maximize what we saw. Be careful if you have limited mobility.
