“Sydney "Must-Do" Site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We did the 12pm handicapped access tour (my wife is in a wheelchair), and were the only people with the tour guide. The tour is very informative with both commentary and a short film. After the tour we went to the cafes on the terrace and had an enjoyable lunch. Highly recommend doing the tour and eating at the opera house.

“A Must to see in Sydney!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Like what they say, if you visit Sydney and didn't see The Opera House, you didn't see Sydney!... I would totally agree on that!

We took the tour and listened to the guide who talked about the history of this great building and we walked around and took many pics!.. although we read much about it before and saw lots of pics of it before, it was nothing like seeing it in the real life... stunning!

“Do not miss the tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is one of the amazing sites of the world. Up close, this is one of the most beautiful structures I've ever seen. Be sure to take the on-hour tour and take in a performance, if you can.

“Town's classic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

What else can I say that has not been said before other than.. its GORGEOUS. The work which was put in it is absolutely amazing. Waited in line with a friend to standing tickets for the Swans lake. Two girls cut in front.. We didn't complain. They got the last two tickets.. That's our luck!

“There is a reason it's an icon”

Words cannot express the beauty you hear when you are inside this masterpiece. Even if you are not a serious opera fan..you will appreciate the talent and quality if you just visit a show. A must visit in Sydney!
