“Worthwhile doing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I haven't set foot inside the Opera House since I was a child! Am so glad we decided to do the 1 hour tour .. it was so interesting and beautiful to see .. we were also lucky enough to be in the main concert hall when the pianist was tuning the piano so could hear the acoustics .. Our guide was lovely and entertaining ... highly recommend.

“World Icon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

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.
