If you're in Sydney, you must take a tour of the Sydney Opera House and see the incredible views from inside not just the beautiful outside. Better yet, see a show!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We did take the one hour tour, but were disappointed with the content and cost. It would have been better to see more of the individual theaters.

An excellent one hour tour around Sydney opera house which gives an insight into the history, architecture and lay out of the Sydney opera house. An informative and entertaining tour which is well worth the time and money.

“A Can't Miss Architectural Feat - Tour is Average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Took a tour of the Opera House, and at $28/per person, nothing out of the ordinary, but worthwhile in the sense that you have access to see all of the theaters and balconies that you wouldn't otherwise. Even if you were to see a performance, you wouldn't necessarily get to walk around everywhere. The Opera House history is pretty amazing/interesting and the views below and above are irreplicable. Depending on the number of photos you are planning on taking, shouldn't take more than a couple hours to see the tour and explore on your own. Free Wi-Fi is great for people who have no international phone access!
