“To be seen!!!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We went to a concert in the main concert hall it is as a very nice experience. If you have time just for a drink at the Opera bar you will get a wonderful view on the Harbour bridge and the bay. We definetely recommend it !

“Nothing like it”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

To see anything at the main concert hall in Sydney Opera House is a must do, intimate, comfortable, friendly. Sarah Blasko and the Orchestra was a gorgeous experience.

“Lots more than just another Concert Hall/Theatre”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Took guided basic tour inside the Opera House which also included discount voucher for lunch. The tour was well attended & enjoyed by all. It is well organised every half hour with headphone speakers provided so that you don't miss any of the guide's explanation. Very informative, includes 2 videos in a seating area giving insight in the history of this beautiful building(s). Our tour lasted 1hr +/- & we opted to use our voucher at the Studio Cafe as it has beautiful views & excellent pizza. Need to be aware that this tour is not for wheelchair as you need to go up & down stairs. Very enjoyable & worth the money.

“Spectacular tour--worth the money!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Our tour guide and the videos told the amazing story of the building of the Opera House. The guide was knowledgeable about architecture and all that it took to get it built. The Opera House was built to fit into a spit of land, keeping the connection between the building and the harbor at every view, every window. This is truly a memory that will stay with me forever.
