“Timeless Classics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

A landmark building you simply cannot miss with a fantastic view of Sydney Harbour. We treated ourselves with one evening at the Opera to see Timeless Classics. It was great experience and a great performance. We arrived by VIP taxi boat from Double Bay (strongly recommend) and had the most spectacular view of Sydney!

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Just because of this beautiful building & the role it plays in the arts it's definitely worth a visit. A tour, although a bit expensive, is a great way to get a bit more of an insight to the behind the scenes areas, as well as a bit more of the history & an opportunity to see more of the areas than you might otherwise get to see.

Highly recommended.

“A tour of an Opera House any good ? It was Excellent !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I wasn't particularly looking forward to this tour but loved it ! It took about 1 hour. It was fantastic to see the various halls and learn a little about it's history. The tour guide was enthusiastic and informative. We took a picnic with us and ate in the Botanical Gardens. A lovely day.

“Iconic Opera House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Sydney and the Opera House go together. Our schedule did not allow us to take a tour, but we thoroughly enjoyed walking around the outside, taking pictures and briefly walking through the lobby. A must-see for anyone visiting Sydney.
