Informative presenter. What a fantastic place. You need to go through it to fully appreciate the size and scale and architecture. Don't leave without attending an event which makes the whole experience that much better.

It was a fascinating experience. We joined the inside tour group. Having heard the history of this it was a great experience to see the giant auditoriums and to visit the different sections. Worth the money we spent. So much so later we took a boat trip to see the magnificent view of this from the sea, the full front view and to see it from a distance! We were fascinated with the architecture.

I sincerely wish if there were some DVD showing this master peace and its details, history and the inside view of those studios.

Great location to hang out and enjoy the boardwalk and views. Tour available but not really necessary unless you really want to see inside the theatres. The Opera Bar is a lovely evening hangout.

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.

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!
